Hey I told you NO MORE TIPS. You have a location now its time to do your homework and figure elevation and proper habitat for the respectful species you are searching out! There won't be any real good tips on spots so stop asking! I mean why don't we just go up there catch the snakes and send them to you! LOL! That would take all the fun out of it though!
Once you find a spot you want to protect it and you certainly would not give out the information on a public forum.
There is to much work involved finding spots to give away information and have people come from all over to destroy tyhe habitat and clean out all the animals. Then you won't have a place to go back to!.
When you pay your dues someday you will be saying the same thing to someone else thats just starting out.
YOU HAVE TWO GOOD THINGS GOING FOR YOU:
1) You live near Fresno (thats good)
2) You know that Shaver Lake has lots of species (mtn kings, rubber boas ect) that makes you very lucky at 15. I wish I had it as good as you when I was that age!
:I will be going herping in Shaver Lake area on the 5th of April.Any tips on where to look?Any ideas on what snakes will be out?I am interested in kings and gophers mainly,but I have heard that rubber boas should be out.Any insight would be great.Thanks,Ryan P.S. I am 15
