:they are all over South Texas as well. It seems that you just have to flip for them instead of cruising for them like you can in W. Texas.
I made myself a list of museum records by county. With 229 individuals recorded, the highest percentage of specimens came from Presidio County, with Brewster close behind. However, as measured in relation to county size (sq miles), Terrell is the #1 county. Sidebar: Hudspeth was dead last using both criteria!
What does all this mean? Not much, since it'd be unfair to say that the museum specimens in any way approximate population densities. I just felt like making a spreadsheet. :)
I had a tip on finding some near Choke Canyon, but this seems a little far east. What kind of habitat should I be looking for? I've heard washes/arroyos, but I have yet to find a Coleonyx anywhere but on the road (variegatus, haven't found a single brevis yet). I must be looking in the wrong places.
