A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being able to go road herping at night around a small portion of the Mojave Desert in NV. Our purpose was to not only document what we found...... but get them off the roads! The amount of run over snake and lizards (and a donkey!) we saw was disheartening. But! We found a lot of awesome wildlife. Here are a pics of a few of my favorite finds: A variable ground snake: This guy was pretty tiny! The other herper I was with has some awesome eyes!! Panamint Rattler: This guy was a beaut! He was our first rattler of the night. A Gopher Snake: I was surprised at how small this bugger was. We have bull snakes in CO and our Bulls dwarf the Gophers we saw on this trip. You can check out more pics here. I have to say herping and bug hunting is one of my favorite things to do!
