Re: Nylon Mesh Snake Death Trap

Yes, I used to use this mesh netting on my fruit trees and koi pond in the winter. It trapped lots of birds and a couple of really nice Bull Snakes, I quit using it.

That a really cool picture. I was born and raised in SD, lived there from 1958 till 1998. I had a friend who I herped with, he taught me how look for tracks and showed me how you could sometimes tell what kind of snake it was, and yes those are definitely Croats. The terrain looks very familiar to m...

Re: You call yourself a herper? What are your credentials?

I grew up on the northern edge of San Diego, there was nothing except Miramar Naval Air Station to the east, another huge expanse of open space. This was back in the 60's and 70's. I was always fascinated with the reptiles and amphibians, I lived on the edge of a coastal canyon with an intermittent ...

I promptly recaptured and fed and released, fortunately, we lived in a semi-rural area the...

Re: Another rare SD find

We used to catch these all the time when I was growing up in SD, 60's/70's. We erroneously reffered to them as "Green" Racers.
Mostly in coastal canyons near water, in tall grass. They were all most as common as the garter snakes.
