Re: Washington County, Oregon

Unless I'm mistaken (which is entirely possible), the racers you have in Oregon are Western Yellow-bellied Racers, Coluber contrictor mormon.

Re: Snake Eats Mouse

Many snakes will eat DORs as long as they're moderately fresh... In fact, that's how many snakes get run over themselves, by lingering on the road trying to consume some flattened prey.

Re: Snake Eats Mouse

Awesome, Lou! The snake gods are still on your side, I see. ;) Many people who've been herping for years never come across a wild snake feeding (let alone a beautiful Speck), so that's an incredible find. Keep up the good work!

Re: California Kingsnake Morphs

Nope... That's my fault though if was an email. With my old account I had all emails from this site directed towards an email address I never checked since my real address was already used for another old account from when I originally joined in 2005. This new account is registered with my real emai...

Re: Thus far in CA

Herpers wear the scent of snake musk proudly. :D Also, holding snakes' heads scares the crap out of them (both figuratively and literally), and with most kinds of snakes you're much less likely to end up stinky/bloody if you handle them gently and confidently without restricting their movement too m...

Re: Washington County, Oregon

Hey I'll trade you some Yellow-bellied Racers for some of those boas. ;) I need to herp where you are, hahaha. The first boa looks like it has really green eyes, you have any close-ups of its face?

The variability in the adders is incredible, thanks for sharing! The damselfly is pretty awesome too. :D

Re: repost; Reds in NorCal DUW

Awesome thread! There is not enough NorCal stuff on here. I think you guys are the first people I've seen ballsy enough to grab a bat, hahaha.

The spider is probably a Titiotus species (family Tengellidae), and your scorp is Uroctonus mordax (family Vaejovidae). Both are harmless.

Re: Saturday in the Sierras

Awesome finds, Cody. It's cool that salamanders can be found this late in the year... I guess it's because of the incredible amounts of rain we've been having in NorCal this season. Just a few nights ago I found an Arboreal Salamander hunting on the surface near my house! I can't recall ever being a...

Re: Anyone Ever seen an Albino Sidewinder?

Sweet, get any photos of it? The relatively few Sidewinders I've found have all been normal.
