N Idaho finds

Post by Ryan Young » April 21st, 2014, 11:37 am

I was out with my daughter in Bonner County Idaho and we found a couple Western Skinks and one Long-toad Salamander. I was hoping to find a few snakes but we did not come across any. I only had my cellphone to take the pics with so it was a challenge to get anything worth sharing.

Nice, It feels good to get some of the first herps for the year. Also a Big Hello From Spokane!

Thanks for the Welcome Travis. I grew up in Spokane and have done most of my herping around Spokane. I am going to try and do more Idaho herping this season as my daughter is enjoying it so far. Here is a Spokane Valley Boa as well as a WA King from last season.

I love that long-toed sali. We don't get many Idaho herps posted here at all. Other than Alaska, I think that Idaho might be the least-vouchered state in the entire http://www.naherp.com database (quick check) - okay, other than Alaska and Wyoming.

Wow, I didn't realize there were Mtn kings in Washington. Also, awesome rubber boa. I just struck out on those in BC! Next time...

Good stuff.

I guess that makes at least three of us that are from Spokane. I still get over that way and get some herping in once or twice a year.

I have found lots of rubber Boas in Spokane. There are many hidden secrets. That king snake is awesome. Id love finding one. You are fortunate. :)
