: find Herping the Trans Pecos by John Hollister. Also try the BBNP home page. Lots of info. When you are down there there is a little pamplet on various species of the park animals including reptiles. BE WARNED though. Any thing that could be construed as "pursueing" wildlife, even to take pictures could land you in trouble. The best way to view wildlife is to drive at night time. But if you come upon any wildlife and "stay" to long, get out of your vehicle, cause undo stress in the form of having a light on the wildlife, anything and if a park ranger sees you it can be construed as pursueing. I know ! I have had warnings on this subject down in Big Bend. And DO NOT HAVE ANY REPTILE CATCHING PARAPHERNALIA in your vehicle. Big Bend is a great place to visit. It is low on vacantioners because of the massive remoteness from other areas and parks. The Big Bend Natural Ranch just outside of the park is a place that you want to visit also. Both places are somewhat untouched and very scenic. Some of us makes yearly pilgrimages down there to collect, observe, photograph, reptiles. (Don't hunt the parks). We like it because it is so secluded and away from everything else.
: Good luck......

Thanks! I already visited the BBNP page and it does have great info. I was hoping to find some good sites with lots of pictures if anyone knows of any. Also, I went to the alterna page and didn't find what you said (herping the trans pecos. The alterna page is the same as the rat snake page correct? All it has is Rat Snakes of North Amer. Lastly, If I bring a snake hook with me to turn over rocks and look around in the day time, will I get in trouble just for that? Seems like they can't do anything just for looking.
