This is a quick overview of what is (and is not) suitable for this area and what is not.

What should NOT be posted here:
  • Photos of animals you saw at the zoo should NOT be posted here. They can be posted in the Photo Gallery.
  • Photos of animals you keep (unless you collected them on your field trip and then they could be added to the field trip account).
  • Posting "I went out and I found this, this and this, and the weather was nice" is not a suitable thread. You need to post more detail and preferably include some photos. We want to hear about your experiences and we wish to learn from each other. Short accounts lacking much information about anything serve no purpose.
What CAN be posted here:
  • Accounts of field trips on which you found amphibians AND/OR reptiles.
  • Preferably (but not absolutely necessarily) with photos, of your field herpetology.
  • For example, let us say you went to the woods and found some salamanders under a rotten tree, with a pond containing larvae of the same species nearby. You decide to describe the weather conditions, what else you found under the rotten wood, if there were larvae in the pond and how developed they were, and any interesting observations. You happened to take some photos and you include those.
  • Posts lacking photos should contain detailed information.
  • Light-hearted posts are fine but please do include real information (what you did, what you used to do what you did, how you found the things you found, what the conditions were like, your conclusions, photos, etc).
Regarding links to other forums:
  • We want to see what you've seen, but preferably we'd like to see it here on caudata.org - otherwise we should just have a links section for field herping, right?
  • When you post a link to another forum you set a bad example for new users because they think it's fine to just post links.
  • Do you think fieldherpforum would be happy if half of their caudata field herping threads were just links to Caudata.org? No, they wouldn't.

The easiest approach to writing a thread describing your field exploits is to look at the other threads in this topic.

Thank you

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
