Took the kids out for spring break this past week.
This was more of a relaxing trip than a herping
trip, but still managed to turn up a few interesting things to photograph.

It's still a little early here with cool nights, but things are starting to move.

The first and only snake of the trip - Masticophis taeniatus schotti - apparently a new county record for Medina county
I've also seen girardi here but have yet to get photographs of them.









Then a Medina county Short Lined Skink - Eumeces tetragrammus brevilineatus





A nesting Great Horned Owl, also in Medina county
nesting in the same spot as last year.


On to Brewster county - this is the first of two Collared lizards found - Crotaphytus collaris collaris





The Cacti are just getting started - We're still a week or more away from the main blooms

Opuntia engelmannii ssp.



Echinocereus dasyacanthus ssp.



The second of two Collared Lizards - Crotaphytus collaris collaris





Texas Banded Gecko - Coleonyx brevis








And finally an unidentified fish vertabrae in sandstone matrix plus or minus 80 million years old
