Howdy Herpers,  

I've taken to pre-crack-of-dawn herping trips to the Puercos. This allows me to track by daylight, and still see some of the herps in action. The real bonus to operating from 0500 to 1000 is the lizards come out in full force by about 0800.

Buenos It's Hot Out Herpers,

If I could push the October button, I'd do it! All you high elevation and road cruising herpers LIVE for this heat. Those of us who have to wallow in it think it SUCKS!

Howdy Herpers,

I'm going to just blast off a short and sweet report from Hotland to you all.


The best news we've had from the tiger rattlesnake front happened Saturday morning, 31 May. We've had two tigers that I've not seen since last year. They are CT4, Blakie, and CT6, Gracie. Both went into hibernation (of some form) on October 21 of 2007.

Howdy Herpers,

I wanted to give a special snow day greeting to my Chicago friends and family. How I wish that I could share in your frigid rapture. At least I wouldn't be suffering from sunburn!

Enough harassing the hapless...
