I call it somewhat on-topic for rec.pets.herp due to the fact that some people keep the stuff I saw as pets, and it's pretty neat to see the stuff you're used too seeing only in pet shops, out in the wild.

Wow.. I was down in Cali in November and didn't see anything. Emotion: sad Then again, we didn't know where to go-went to a few parks, that was about it.

Well, I did gawk at all that lovely rattlesnake country as we drove through it.

Lovely Cal King, rosy boa, gopher country and from my friends' descriptions, literally hundreds of them in every spot we checked. Granted, January isn't the best time most are still deep underground.
We're planning another "photo herping" trip down there sometime this spring, hopefully. Would be nice to see all the "relatives" of the pets I have at home in their natural environment.

A good tip in fieldherping is to look for a natural part of the landscape, known as plywood, and look underneath it. :-)
Sheet metal is also promising.

We'll prob try that in the spring. We didn't go off the highway much, so didn't see any piles of stuff that looked promising.

Nice shots, Chris. I saw them first in their "natural habitat" on Fieldherpers. I wonder how many of the folks on rph ever get out in the field and flip a little tin. Anyone up for an informal survey?

I used to when I was a kid. I hardly get out of the house now, but when I DO, I certainly turn over any big rocks, wood or tin I see. Emotion: smile
