Re: Carribean classics - DUW, Virgin islands, Cayman and DR

The grey tortoise is an Aldabra. It's most likely in heaven in that neck of the woods. It is also most likely a pet that was imported. It's interesting that it's the first I've seen from the Carribean.

btw... you're photography is fantastic.

Re: Greenlee County King Snake

The mentality of the responses to my posts are seriously interesting. I said I thought it looked like a Chain King... can anyone deny that it does? I did not say it was a Chain King. That photo actually adds credibility to the idea that getula is a single highly variable species. At the risk of gett...

Re: Greenlee County King Snake

At the risk of getting my head bitten off... yet again... that sure looks like a Chain King to me.

Re: Herping vehicle: Tacoma vs. others

All the others are based on the technology of the Jeep... you can't beat it. The Toyota looks cool (I remember the first 4x4 pickup)... still can't compare with the Jeep. I'm looking at the Toyota TRD 4wd w/ locking rear differential (getting stuck is getting old). Anyone on here own one and use it ...

Re: Red Bamboo Ratsnake (O. p. kawakamii)

Thanks much. I'll do that. On the spelling... I'm sure most thought it was a typo and just blew it off as such. Needless to say... that has to be cool finding such animals in your back yard. Thanks for the nice comments, everyone! Yes, I did indeed employ the plate to spin the snake any way I wanted...

The first tortoise is out of sombodys yard. There is no way that animal grew to that form in the wild.

First thought... oh crap... gotta learn a new name. Don't shoot me for continuing to use Elaphe out of simplicity. Second thought... it has to be wonderful to road cruise such an animal. Finally... I've got one of those which I'm trying to do something with but I'd like to know what subspecies it is...

I believe they are a type of Sphynx Moth. I also believe that they are really common and impressive certain times of the year. They also have a huge range.

That is one of the most inspiring posts I've ever seen. That's the once in a lifetime trip I can only dream of.

On the first sunset shot... did you wait and watch the sun break the plain? That looked like the perfect opportunity to see the green flash.

Re: REQUEST: Post a pic of a Pine Snake track

I'm probably going to get distroyed for this but WTF...

My first thought is when a ratsnake does that kinked up thing when you come up on it either in a car or on foot. I wonder of it has a crawling position similar to this?
