Holy Smokes, Brendan! After a long absence from the forum I almost missed your post ...wow, am I ever glad for the search that found it. No way to pick a favorite, but finding all of those Gilas together sure doesn't suck. You have so many shots of snakes grouped together - it's just amazing. I'd say you probably had days that were better than my entire year. In fact, I'm hesitant to even bother posting my stuff now, but I already put so much time into it I'll probably carry on and hope that I can come anywhere close to hanging with you this coming year. Congratulations on such a prolific year!

The year wouldn't be complete without your recap post. I'd be really bummed if you didn't post it.
I love learning about rattlesnake social behavior so I do my best to find situations where multiple snakes may interact. I'm off to a pretty slow start this year without having been out once but hopefully I'll get on it soon.

Post away!

Seeing this post really makes me miss living in Arizona. I am in Australia right now and I gotta say.... American herps (especially crots), for the most part, shite all over aussie herps...

Very nice Brendan

Josh

Thanks Josh. I guess I can't really comment since I've never been to OZ yet. It's high on the list of places to visit but without crotes it's not quite as much of a draw for me. I'd still like to see a few of the smaller snakes like tigers and even a taipan just to check it off the list.

A lot of great pics of some awesome animals! My personal favorite would have to be the Gilas popping their heads out from under the rock.

Yeah Brendan, I agree. There isn't much that captures my interest here as the rattlesnakes do in the Americas or any arboreal viper from anywhere. But, it is still worth the trip! If you ever make it out this way, I'll get you in touch with some people who will take care of ya. In the mean time, I'm getting prepared for Peru :)

Thanks Jayder! Gilas are awesome animals. Hope to see that trio again this year.

Josh thanks for the offer, I appreciate it. Have a great time in Peru!

Yo Brendan, That was as amazing as it is every year. Pictures are worth a thousand words as you proved it in this thread.
I love those pictures but the Gila Hole video was crazy cool! I liked the music to it was relaxing..


Thanks Doc !

Gracias amigo! Funny how this thread resurfaces once in a while and a few new peeps get to view it. Glad you enjoyed it. Once this snow storm heads out of Phoenix maybe I can get my herp on.
