Coast Range herps

Post by yolodave » February 21st, 2011, 11:29 pm

Visited a reserve in the Coast Range. Saw a total of 143 Slender Salamanders. For some reason, didn't photograph any of them.

Here are a few photos of other critters.



Cruised around in a John Deere "Gator" so this seemed appropriate..

Southern Alligator Lizard

This Arboreal Salamander was not much more that 30mm long.

First Sharp-tailed Snake I've seen up here:

Young Western Fence Lizard

Love how these guys look:

California Newt:

Total of 15 Skinks seen, but this one took the cake:

Another view:

Thanks for looking.

Great shot of the Salamander! I think I like that one the best. Thanks for sharing the photos. It's nice to see what people are up to.

Shane W. mentioned this post to me. Glad to see you got some success with the boards - we put a lot of work into getting them out there!

Any big female Contia seen?
