First Herping Trip of 2010

Saturday, May 22, 2010 , 0 Comments

It's springtime in Kansas. What does that mean, well fishing naturally but also herping. The other day my friend Andrea and I went out to Clinton hoping to find some reptiles and amphibians to catch and photograph and I was hoping to find a Copperhead or two. Well, no snakes but here is what we did find: 

American Toad, Bufo americanus

These guys were everywhere, mostly rocks faces and in shallow/still water: Blanchard's Cricket Frog

Blanchard's Cricket Frog, Achris crepitans

These guys are fast, I think I chased him around for 15 minutes. Never did catch him, only a photo: Prairie Racerunner, Aspidoscellis sexlineata
