Did my last post really have no herps in it? That’s impressive, considering the number of cool herps we have recently encountered. Here’s a taste…

We see a lot more than just cool herps, too. Sean and Chris do some birding in passing, and we certainly come across some interesting fauna in our travels…

I’m not sure how this relationship will end. Good luck with that one, Chris.

  1. I don’t even bother catching racers anymore. They’re not much fun when you do get them and I’m entirely too lazy and slow to run after them!
