Possible Mexican Records/Possiblemente recordas de Mexico

Hi everyone, This is my first time posting on the Mexico Chapter. I've read the thread of Possible U.S records, but what about the many records that have been insufficient or not known. For example, there are many unconfirmed records of Crotalus Atrox from Tehuantepec and Veracruz, that are legit At...

Re: Spot-less Spotted Salamander?

You know I think I was wrong about the Jefferson, because the species actually looks more like a Silvery Salamander, judged by color and side blotches. Salamanders are so confusing these days ;) .

Re: New Jersey Queensnakes?

I think there is a very thin strip of suitable habitat were the queen snake resided in NJ. I would say that area has degraded greatly over the last few decades. I would guess that the snake is extirpated from the state. Yeah, I think all this human embarkment near the border, and the septic/polluti...

Re: New Jersey Queensnakes?

1958 in Bucks County... Finding one in NJ would be a good project for you. Thanks Mr. Loucks. It would be interesting to see if any exist in NJ. If so, it would defiantly be a herpetological event. I do believe the only good habitat for them is in Mercer, Gloucester, and Bucks counties. I've seen m...

New Jersey Queensnakes?

Hi, Has anyone seen a Queensnake in or close to New Jersey. I remember one Bucks county record, but thats about it. I also read there have been no reports of this rare snake since 1977. Why is that? Was there some type of spill or chemical dip, or a decrease in Crayfish. I have been around my local ...

Pythons and boas submerge in the water to ambush passing prey, they use their heat sensing pits to seek the prey and strike at it as well.

Go anywhere away from the large cities and the diversity is good particularly the Cordillera Central Mountain Range. “El Coqui” is pretty common and obvious on any rainy night, even in the cities. If you go inland, do not swim in the freshwater lakes, anywhere . There is a low to medium risk of bei...

Darnell, I'm pretty sure it's a Jefferson's salamander. The dorsum seems to the classic Jefferson's coloration of brownish with lighter tints of blue. In that region (judged by the situ) slimies and spotties are much more stout and the eyes are not pulled out of the head. It's also to small to be a ...

Re: Possible Country Records for the US

I would highly think that there is an intergrade section between Clades with the population of milks in Cochise County because specimens are similar to both celanops and sinaloae. Plus sinaloae makes it up to a few km south of Benjamin Hill, so I have no doubt that Cochise populations are intergrade...
