    Default Xantusia!!!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi all,
    I though I would post a couple of pics of one of my favorite species to find in the field.... Xantusia henshawi... I have only had a camera for the last couple months.. so all of these were photographed in the 'dead' of our CA winter.


    a young one...

    a couple more....

    This individual is one of my favorites... he has been under the same rock for the last couple years - always there when I need my Xantusia fix...

    All of those were from various places in San Diego county.... This one is from riverside county. If I remeber Grismer, the spots get bigger as they populations move south. We will have to see what the ones look like in Baja in about a month or so

    That's it for now... As the season progresses I will show pics of some other Xantusia and coleonix species (now that I have a camera)...
    You guys like snakes, frogs and salamanders? I'll get some other species up sooner or later.
    -Peter

    Thansk for all of the kind comments guys.
    -Phantasticus and Hazpat, hopefully I will meet you guys in the near future.
    --Bruce: thanks man, i am sure I will see you soon, I am glad you are finding these guys now too, vigilis in sSD would be fantastic. Don't believe what Jeff says about the wiggsoni(sp?) influence - i don't buy it, but have yet to see one in person - ha ha ha!
    JBR - good luck!
