Re: Morro Bay data point

Those Jackson's around Morro Bay are there because of a July 16, 1981 F&G raid on Terry Lilley years ago when F&G illegally raided Terry's home and opened cages outside that housed the chameleons! Terry was exonerated by the courts on June 28, 1982 after a lengthy and costly court battle. I photogra...

Re: Herping Yellowstone National Park

Finally after many years of looking and many tanks of gas and only, finding DOR's & Sheds, I finally got to photograph a Bullsnake in Yellowstone National Park! As usual, lots of sheds! http://i1187.photobucket.com/albums/z384/GSHIS/Yellowstone%202013/IMG_8976.jpg http://i1187.photobucket.com/albums...

Here are a few of the herps I've photographed so far: Blotched Tiger Salamander http://i1187.photobucket.com/...

Re: California tortoises moved....

We don't need solar panels out in our desert here in CA. I believe it to be a huge mistake. The relocated tortoises from Fort Irwin met with disasterous consequences. Most died! Relocating these could produce the same negative results. Those at Fort Irwin were released during cold weather and didn't...
