Re: Feb 28th and later- Palm Beach County and South activity?

While we are on the topic of herping south Florida this time of year, I figured I'd mention that I'm heading down there (from North Carolina) March 2nd - 9th. My plans are very loose, camping here and there, herping, birding, snorkeling in the keys, but mostly staying in the Everglades/Big Cypress v...

Re: So Cal So Far (Mojave, SD County, Tejon Ranch, etc.)

Thanks for the comments! It was a fun spring/early summer. The Mojave Dessert Tortoise is beautiful. Do you have any close ups of the Patch-Nosed? Good Pics! :thumb: No, I unfortunately don't, and I haven't taken any pictures of the others that I have seen. Fantastic post David! Love all the diversi...

So Cal So Far (Mojave, SD County, Tejon Ranch, etc.)

In March of 2017 I moved to Barstow, CA, for a temporary position studying desert tortoises. Although the job location elicited eye rolls and sentiments when sharing the news with family and friends (no offense to my fellow Barstow-ians), I was excited about the potential herpetofauna I hoped to enc...

Photo Embed Test

My apologies, but this post is merely to test embedding photos from Flickr- I am preparing a longer post but the photos are not being displayed in the preview. So here's a herp photo totally unrelated to that post topic: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1534/24423931774_297b36a87f_k.jpg Iguana iguana ...

Hello everyone, I am from the east coast, but am currently working in the Sierras studying mountain yellow legged frogs. I've got 4-6 of September free and am planning on exploring other parts of the state. Is anyone interested in joining me for herping? I was thinking of going to lower elevations i...

Re: Peruvian Amazonia 2016, part 3 of 3: Santa Cruz

John, You and I may have seen the exact same frog... I was at Santa Cruz this past January and also found a healthy, adult one-eyed H. cinerascens (pictured below). This guy was found on the entrance trail next to one of the bridges. Where did you see yours? https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1629/24684...

Re: Herping Arizona this November

Thanks for the reply Brian, it'll be great to be out there herps or no herps. :beer:

One additional inquiry: Does anyone have an opinion if Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is a safe area for solo campers and night hiking? I'm basically trying to decide between going there or the Chiricahuas.

Herping Arizona this November

Hello everyone, I will be travelling to Phoenix for the Amphibian Disease Conference over the weekend of October 30th. I plan on staying in Arizona until November 4th for some hiking/herping/camping- I'll likely rent a car and could probably make it as far as the Chiricahuas, but as of now I have no...

I am planning a trip to camp for a few nights in southern California next week. I will be starting in Las Vegas and heading west, hoping to find some southwestern herps (particularly phrynosoma). Any recommendations between Death Valley and Joshua Tree for this time of year? It looks like the weathe...
