Places near Fresno?

Hi my name is . I'm going to Fresno this weekend for a reptile expo, but since it's a pretty long drive from home (I live in Western Contra Costa County, specifically Danville) I really want to make the most of this drive, also because I've never been remotely near inland CA. So far, I'm heavily con...

Re: Herping Salamanders in the Bay

Yes! Today I went fieldherping spontaneously at a place waaay closer to me than the others, and this has been my best herping experience by far! I found a diverse array of herps composed of : Western skink (1) Pacific ringneck snake juvenile(1) Ensatina e. xanthoptica (1 adult, 2 juveniles) Taricha ...

Re: Herping Salamanders in the Bay

Well, I herped at a new place yesterday, but still the same herps minus the ensatinas (but plus a banana slug). http://s14.postimg.org/6tk5d2fz5/n_Nr4q5c_H258_Ua_ZFM2s_M0_A9pc_Kw_Cl8_O8_Qhf_YD8_Nlxz8606_XLb.jpg http://s16.postimg.org/okbvhtc2t/jps_BKx_AFDY9pe_PCGYVqzk4a_Utvkyd_Gc_E0fg_NQBZt_Zsa_P6dm...

Amazing series!

They introduced Iceplant to Australia too (IDK why it caught my attention)? :shock:

Re: Herping Salamanders in the Bay

:D Thanks for your responses! El Garia: Yeah, most of the cover I flipped was pretty dry underneath too. Using the range maps from CA herps (what a great reference!) the Batrachoceps I've seen are definitely attenuatus. It's reassuring that Caudate weather will be improving. :) Also cool username. A...

Re: Herping Salamanders in the Bay

Oh, I forgot to add, Slenders live in my backyard! :D But I haven't identified them to ssp yet. Also I'm relieved that Arboreals are a common salamander. They're my favorite of all caudates and by far.

I'll add the salamanders to the database tonight. :)

Re: Herping Salamanders in the Bay

Thanks a lot guys! Don't worry, I'll be mindful of the environment, biota, and other people! I've actually lurked a while on this forum before making my account. Much appreciated Owen! Normally, I actually wouldn't handle but I couldn't get a good picture with the Iphone and I was a little bit too h...

Herping Salamanders in the Bay

Hi! This is my first post here and first time -successfully- fieldherping too! I wasn't disappointed at all. :) These pictures are from December. Overall I've found 4 Ensatina xanthoptica (2 adults and 2 metamorphs) and many California Newts (I stopped counting around 8) http://s12.postimg.org/8kli4...
