Herp Update: Saturday Night? – December 10, 2021
Continuing Amphibian Activity
Herpers, looking to replace Christmas movies with herping this weekend? The current weather forecast is for wet and warm (near 50°F) tomorrow evening (Saturday) either before or after dinner. I may not be able to make it out, but I expect there will be at least Eastern Red-backed Salamanders still moving at major crossing areas like North Street in New Haven. If you see any herps moving anywhere, please do let me know.
The Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas Annual Fundraiser
