AC asked about the pic of the peruvian cribo I posted a while back. I asked the photographer for more info and offered to put his images up on a web site for him. I'll post his last email below. If anyone is heading to Peru this winter, I think Pablo would be happy to show you around. Wouldn't that be a trip?

==============================

Hi Joe
The cribos of my zone never have yellow tails. All
have black tails, that is something caracteristic on
them. Some have black lines in all the body and a
few don't have the black lines and only are darck
green olive. These are the least.
The only cribos with yellow tails that I have seen,
they are the ones that inhabit in the rain forest.
These are almost yellow and some have black spots on
the back, but these are the D. corais corais and they
are very beautiful and big.
Where does your D. corais melanurus come??
The spilotes pullatus is very pretty. Since a long
time that I want a couple of these snakes but I was
not lucky. I have been looking for them in several
expeditions to the rain forest but I never found them.

I found others big snakes like Chironius fuscus and C.
exoletus. There is not Spilotes here in my zone.
The reptiles of my zone inhabit in a ecosistem called
BOSQUE SECO ECUATORIAL.( Equatorial Dry Forest).
I know a place in the rain forest ,where a freind from
my university lives, where inhabit the Spilotes better
known there with the name UYURI.
Maybe this summer I could go there to capture and to
take pictures of that snake.
I am very interesting having a web page about reptiles
of my zone.
I could publish a good number of reptiles and
amphibious pictures that are rare in my zone and in
the rain forest. Also I could offer my service of
field guide for people who wants to come to Peru to
watch, to take pictures of reptiles and to promote the
herping in my zone (Northem Peru). I could go with
them to look for species like cribos, boa constrictor
ortonii and many more.
The only problem is that all pictures are slides and
in the city where I live, there is a slide scaner. I
have to travel to Lima to do it.
Keep writing,

Pablo
