I remember a local TV News segment broadcast some years ago about local getaway weekends in SoCal. They did a little story about visiting Mitchell Caverns. As the cameraman was walking into the cave (viewer's POV) with his handheld, he suddenly pans over to a snake creeping on a rockface just at the...

Go to the Chiricahuas during monsoons. You'll see so many that eventually you won't bother to stop for them on the road. unless you're like me who believes they need to 'rescue' every snake they find on the road ;)

I would just like to say from my opinion, there is no such thing as a'lame' herp if it's an indigenous species found in your area, or anywhere for that matter, and has been able to survive the ever burgeoning onslaught of human encroachment. Watersnakes are lame found in a place like a lake in Los A...

Not to rock the boat historically, but the first forum post i recall the usage of the term LECH was at "not allowed" on their Field Herp Forum way before its present incarnation (Now called Field Observations). I recall Martin J. Feldner using the term, but I don't think he coined it.
