Re: What's the latest you've seen amphibs breeding?

Our toads often breed late in the summer. Mid to late summer is our rainy season and often the only time there is any surface water other than at springs, rivers, and large tinajas.

Re: Back from the Bend...dial up warning.

Hey Daryl, thanks for the nice words! I don't think it would be harmful to mention where the snake came from: the area around highway 349 N of Dryden... Hmmm. Actually, I was thinking of another road that is further west. I've never herped 349. Looks like another reason to make a trip up to Sanders...

Re: Back from the Bend...dial up warning.

Wow Chad! That was an incredible herping trip and a great post. Thanks for sharing. Lots of folks are having good luck basing out of Sanderson this year.

Re: The History of the term LECH... Looking for answers

Got back into determined field herping in 2007, largely as a result of my state lawmakers trying to outlaw road cruising. YOUR state lawmakers? ;) Hey, speaking of staying under the radar, I emailed you a month ago re: my West TX extravaganza, but you never replied. Sort of a moot point, because af...

Re: The History of the term LECH... Looking for answers

The OLD kingsnake archives available for searching at forum."not allowed" (the new forums."not allowed"'s archives begin in 2003). The earliest post I could find with my name in it was mid-2002 (a thread about Gerry Binczik feeding strawberries to snakes to improve their color :lol: ). Thanks for t...
