Hi Tom, Excellent information, Thank You. I have collected Bairdi on Juno Rd in the past years which I beleived were pretty nice animals (nice grey with orange skin between scales). Planning on going out west and exscuively looking for them very soon.
VIVID Reptiles markets Bandera County indiviuals as the Best looking. He does have some nice Bairdi. Tim G. states about location of pure Bairdi hunting area, " As far as hunting, Vanderpool and Leaky are good areas for the better looking animals". I live in Boerne Tx and Medena County/Lake is very close, that is alot further south & east than I beleived the pure form exists. From your information it sounds like the intergrades are more common to be found in the northern/western part of their eastern range. I saw a pic of a Lost Maples individual, diffinitely an intergrade which I believed was in the "turf" of the pure Bairdi! Do you have any pic of your critters? Any additional thoughts? (trying to milk you for info.) I have kept snakes for 25 years and in that time alot of different species, I am returning to Bairdi for one reason, they are very interesting/pretty serpents.
