What is the fascination with Australia? Why are there so many arguments over the Australian pythons, the Pseudoechis and such? Is there a potential for something like this to happen in the Crotalus genus, or is there already. The reason I ask this is because of some things I've heard here in PA, USA about C. horridus horridus and C. horridus atricidatus (sp, not a taxonomist obviously, or latin for that matter)
Are these arguments still going on. Are there any other north american species being argued about. And why not as much as the Australian species. I mean, not to be upset about it, what with living here and all. But it seems that every post concerns some Australian reference (I realize most of you LIVE there) But what about South America....is there anybody looking for NEW species there, there must be at least a coupl hundred in the canopies that we haven't found yet. Or Africa too for that matter.
I guess what I want ot know is, why Australia?
And is anybody else working elsewhere, and if so, why don't we hear about it here?
