Re: Mountain Lions

I guess I must be luck as I have only been to the US a dozen or so times and had an amazing encounter in Wyoming a few years ago.

Re: California in January

Thanks for all the advice, the weather did not do me any favours and I only managed to find one salamander, and a few lizards did much better with birds and mammals. Any help confirming the ID's appreciated http://www.flickr.com/photos/markhows/8428394430/in/set-72157632641371493 http://www.flickr.c...

Re: California in January

Good time for salamanders along the "Redwood Coast" north San Francisco and you can find Northern Alligators, Boas, fence Lizards, ring-necks, Terrestrial Garter, and perhaps a few other reptiles by flipping cover such as boards and tin at abandoned farms and junk piles. Many Thanks I hope to find ...

Thanks, it looks like reptiles will be thin on the ground. I will be based in The San Francisco area heading down the coast to visit the Channel islands, then across to the eastern side of California up to the Redding area and back to SF. I have not been herping in CA before so looking forward to i...

California in January

Being from the UK, I need some advice about herping in Northern California, may get down to LA area.

Will it be too cold for reptiles in this area at this time? Should I concentrate on amphibians instead?

Any advice appreciated on what to look for.

Curtis,

I only visited Glacier briefly but enjoyed it, had some great mountain goats, but very envious of those weasels.
