I really enjoyed this paper. Another well done study by Colorado State and the USGS.

Thanks for that Bryan, it was enjoyable. Interesting results with implications for control (either containment or exclusion, depends where you're talking about - Guam, vs anywhere else).

Wait, isn't that an oxymoron? Ha ha ha...

cheers

PS I have a copy of that Urban Herpetology book (w/ chapter by Andrews & Gibbons cited in the paper you link), if you don't have it but want a look at it.
