Trip to So Cal in May

My internet is extremely slow, so I am trying to just post a few pics from each trip. All of these herps were lifers for me!

Others may have their opinions but if you were in San Diego county (which I'm guessing you were), that second glossy looks like an intergrade Desert x California glossy or possibly even a straight California glossy. There are a few areas where the 2 intergrade in SD county, at mid level elevations once you get off the desert floor. Awesome finds though!

Jeremy

We had thought it may be an intergrade. It was found at mid elevation, actually both were. Thanks for the info.
