dove population of 60,000,000 in Cordoba Province alone, I will be a busy man!!!..I'm not going to be near any city for long..Cordoba, the capitol, is where we enter and depart...I'll e-mail ahead and see if my host can make an exporter contact in Cordoba for me(Should'a thought of that 4 or 5 yrs ago, but age really sucks!!)

I do not have a reference for ranges other than the ubiquitous "south to Argentina" I figured it has to be corais, but I certainly don't know for sure...The area we hunt is perfect for snakes, yet I never seen one in 4 yrs...Lots of grain fields and consequently, lots of rodents,winged or otherwise!! CG

:corais (yt) appears to be the "official" southern-most described subspecies...ranging (approximately) from Guyana in the NE westward to as far south and west as Peru. Caudamaculata was found in Venezuela only as of yet. Melanurus also makes it into Northern S. America but is not know to interbreed with corais or caudamaculata.(has been also documented within the ranges of both)
:
:So...the way I'm seeing it...anything found in Argentina is either a new sub. undescribed to science, or a (VERY LARGE) extention of the range of one of the other subs.

:We've seen those photos of the tiger-striped melanurus-looking snakes that were supposedly from Argentina...but...no one seems to know what it really is, other than Drymarchon.

:So Carl...go forth and discover. If you find something, note the exact location, habitat type...record length, weight, do scale counts...take a ton of pics...and get all the info you possibly can. You're pioneering !! I'm envious!
