Re: The Only Biosphere Reserve in the Lesser Antilles

Thanks for the comments.

Justin, as far as I know the only snake on the actual island (of St John) is the blind snake Typhlops richardii. There used to be Arrhyton exiguus, but now you can only find them on the cays where there are no mongooses.

Re: The Undescribed

The waterdog in the coastal plain formerly known as Loding's waterdog is technically still "undescribed" It was once considered Necturus lodingi, Necturus beyeri and Necturus alabamensis.

That would be a big leopard frog! I was leaning away from green frog the whole time because the habitat didn't seem quite right (usually only see them along creeks and rivers/bottomlands etc and not open sunny grassy ponds), but was wondering if anything else would even fit.

What kind of tadpole is this? Rana sphenocephala (seems too big)? Rana clamitans? Rana catebeiana/grylio(what's up with the ridge then)?

Oh yeah, sorry I didn't mention, the only herps near Anchorage are wood frogs. So that is what they all are. Although with no locality info I would think the second to last one was certainly not a wood frog. I've never heard reports of a wood frog that looked that abnormal.

You would be lucky to find anything. I guess sometimes people find plains and/or common garters even in urban areas. Probably some toads and chorus frogs, maybe a blue spotted salamander or brown/redbelly snake if you're really lucky.
