Hey all,

Just wanted to share some photos of herps I have found road hunting thus far this breeding season.

All of these have been found within a stretch of road approximately one mile long. I usually go road hunting twice a day, for about fifteen minutes each time. All of the ones found are adults except for one oddball juvenile. The juvenile was crossing the road when the road was totally dry, the sun was shining on it, and in the middle of the day :eek: ( actually most of these were found in the middle of the day ( the T. granulosa ), but it is not common to find A. gracile in the middle of the day as far a I know ).

The first pic is a male T. granulosa. Second is a female A. gracile. Third is a Male T. granulosa. Fourth is my male and female amplexing, and my male ( the one on top ) was found during "the big night", so technically he counts too. Fifth is a Female T. granulosa, same for the sixth. Seventh and eighth is a juvenile A. gracile ( the oddball one ). In the second picture he is in a defense posture.

I will post the rest of the pics of different individuals later/tomorrow, I can only attach eight pics at a time.

If you have any questions feel free to ask :happy:

Enjoy!

And yet more........

First and second one, female T. granulosa. Third and fourth, yet another female T. granulosa. Fifth and sixth, what a surprise! Another female T. granulosa! :rolleyes: Oh, and we might as well add another female T. granulosa ( seven and eighth pics ).

Third pic, Juvenile A. gracile. Fourth and fifth pics, small extremely skinny T. granulosa, unknown gender. Sixth and seventh pics, extremely fat adult female T. granulosa.

More to come in my next post!

First and second pic, adult female T. granulosa. Third pic, adult female A. gracile. Fourth and fifth pics, adult female T. granulosa. sixth pic, adult female A. gracile. Seventh pic, this one might be the same on as the sixth pic, but i am not sure. At any rate, its a female A. gracile.

That's all for now, though i do have more! But i will post those tomorrow. Enjoy! And have a nice day! :D

OK, so I have more. I don't really know if anyone is actually reading this thread or actually finds it interesting, so I will stop soon. :happy:

First three pics are a juvenile A. gracile that entered defense posture. Fourths is a Pacific chorus frog ( ugh, I really need to memorize their Latin name! ) Same for the fifth. So that's all I have right now.
Sorry about the black bars and the sides of the picture, my camera lens didn't open all the way :nono: Oh well.

Enjoy! -Seth

    It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.
