Hello,
I am new to this Forum and happy to be here. I have been reading posts from here for a while and thought I would join. I enjoy looking for reptiles and amphibians with my Dad and we try to go almost every weekend. We catch and release what we find since my Mom is not ready to have snakes in the house yet and since it would be impossible to keep all the herps that we find. We make sure to release them right where we find them. I am currently breeding some Crested Geckos and have a couple of eggs in our homemade incubator. We have been catching a lot of king snakes, night snakes, and gopher snakes lately. We have also seen quite a few Southern Pacific rattlesnakes and one Red diamondback the other day. The rattlesnakes that we see we leave alone. We recently caught a Coastal Patch Nose snake. I will post a picture of it as soon as I figure out how to do that.
Thanks

Welcome to the forum! You sound like a true herper at heart ... and so does your dad, very cool. You guys ever take photos? We'd love to see them!

Cheers

Hans

We do take pictures, and I have plenty to post when I figure out how. I am working on that now. :)

I Take pictures with my iphone5C so the pictures vary in quality. I am sorry about that. I am saving my money to buy a normal camera for my herps.

Thank you,
Bryce

Looks like a night snake Hypsiglena; don't know which species/subspecies as a lot of work has been done with them in the last several years.

Thank you for helping me with the picture posting. I will try it again but I tried to follow it but it was sort of confusing for me.

Hi everyone :) . I am going to south Florida soon and I would like to know some tips on field herping, rock flipping, road cruising, etc. I will be in fort Myers for a while, and then I am visiting Key Largo and areas around there. If anyone knows some tips on herping there, I would be glad to know them. I will also be canoeing in the everglades if you know anything about that. Here is a list of my favorite reptiles to see there:
Eastern indigo snakes,Eastern coral snakes, Southern hognose snakes, Florida scarlet snakes, Brahminy blind snakes, Dusky pygmy rattlesnakes, EDB (Eastern Diamond-back rattlesnakes), Florida cottonmouths, Florida rough green snakes, Burmese pythons, Eastern box turtles, Eastern mud snakes, Veiled chameleons, Green iguanas, Eastern glass lizards, Timber rattlesnakes, snapping turtles, Striped crayfish snakes, Southern Ring-neck snakes, and southern copperheads. I would also LOVE to see Tokay Geckos. Thank you,
Bryce
