Hey, and I gotta say this... as much as Chad pisses me off up to no end. He IS a little human encyclopedia to field herping. And as much as a lot of that scientific shit bores the hell out of me ( :lol: ) he has an extensive knowledge of field herping.

Ok, I'm done :sleep: The porter now enters hibernation...

Well, I believe you. lol I saw a juvenile that had a light greenish hue to his yellow bands, so I do believe that greenish color does exist. My friend says his juvenile Pink Pearl (lavender X Palomar ghost double homozygous) Cal kings have a lot of that light green in them. I think its visible outside, but may not show up inside. And in most specimens it probably goes away with age. If you've found a population with older adults having that green, that would be pretty cool to see.

Ohhh yeah.... I can dig it, man... it's all in the drag baby... all in the drag... 8-)

Coolest thing about the drag shot still, to me, is Fast Eddie going with follow through and Minnesota with the drawback. Says something about their character's character.

As much as I'd like to keep the ball rolling... this bear's heading to the cave :sleep: Oooooo yeah, baby... sleepy time, time

I found three like this one in that area. I think one of them is pictured in Hubb's book. I need to find my old Canon Powershot (60, I think?) and check out the cards. I have an old Fuji that is loaded with a bunch of stuff as well. Anyway, some cool looking kings in a fairly small area.
