::Yeah, my boy and I (he's never seen a snake) are planning a father and son herp outing in South Florida. Since I have no time to scout herping spots for myself as my time is far too valuable than yours, Can anybody point out any awsome spots for Kings,Indigos, and 6 ft. Rat snakes. Oh yeah, I almost forgot I will take pictures.......Trust Me!! I have to agree with the previous replies. It does come across in the wrong way. How could your time be so valuable that it is not worth your time to ask and research where to take your son yourself. Isn't this important? My son was recently interested in finding fossils(As well as getting his own snake bag)recently. Since I haven't collected fossils since I was a teenager I researched it and asked property owners for permission before he came down. We found plenty and numerous herps. For your son's sake please first take the time to be polite and then put some of that valuable time into it. I'd be happy to advise but, only for your son's sake and after you have exhausted some effort on your part. All of us here have put in numerous hours pouring over texts and time in the field. Yes, we consider our time important and our knowledge well earned. We share this info because of our mutual respect. Stay away from the Indies! They are actually common in some areas but, your a little late in the year for them. Regards, Ray Goushaw HBR
