sorry but AOL often cuts me off if a post gets too long and then I have to start over.
The other thing in common is that teh snakes seem to be much more secretive than one would expect from atrox in general. There is a road that is only about an hour away from my house that I have driven for years. The habitat is desert grassland where it meets the first rocky juniper covered foothills. I always liked the area because one could cerbs, molossus, pyros etc. mixed in with desert species. But in several years of cruising and hiking I never saw an atrox, which surprised me. I even asked the Forest Service personell that live at the nearby campground and was told there were no atrox in the area. Then in two nights in a row in 1997 we saw 6-7 atrox each night and all were over five feet with one at least 6.5. We also saw a couple scutulatus which was a first for us also. We have never seen an atrox or scut since on that road. Something was just right to bring them out those two nights.
