Re: Planes, Trains and Gartermobiles

Great photography, wonderful variety, Scott.
Taxidea = one of my favorite mammals. Its disposition is very similar to one of my long time field companions<LOL>

Fantastic posts, Sam--as always.
The only Batrachoseps I have yet to see is B. aridus (or whatever it may be called today). But I'm still hoping.

Enjoyed these thoroughly Mike. Thanx for taking the time to put all together.
It'd be nice to do it again. There's always the possibility of one or more new taxa
waiting just over the next limb for the inquiring lens. dick

Re: Back from the Amazon.

The scalation of the 2 genera are very different Jason.
Pseustes (like the one he is holding) has 17-19 scale rows (normal, like one of our rat snakes) while Chironius (like the orange one in the tree) has fewer scale rows (10-12) of proportionately much larger scales.

Re: Back from the Amazon.

Think Chironius on your Pseustes.

The snake in the tree is Chironius scurrulus, adult.

That Hard-to-Get Chick Chick? Why chicken turtle of course. Strange turtles, these chickens of the puddles. Chicken turtles come in three flavors and of these, I have found two, the brightly colored and high-domed Florida, Deirochelys reticularia, D. r. chrysea, and the somewhat less colorful but ot...
