:and a great one. The best book on TX snakes ever put together and maybe one of the best state/snake books I have seen (and a huge improvement over Tennants big book, IMHO) A must have book.


yea, I'm a little slow...


:Tom makes some interesting comments regarding the range maps. I checked and found some similar inconsistencies (I collected a Blacktail in Gillespie County several years ago, which was published and deposited in a TX museum collection but - no dot on the map!) For that reason, serious herpers should have both books (Texas Snakes and Dixon's Amphibians and Reptiles of Texas).

:I do like however, that the range maps show specific locales rather than just outlines or county dots. A couple of years ago another person and I went up to Andrews Co. to find a Desert Massasauga for some research he was doing. We looked at Werler and Dixon and could see that most of the records came from one particular road. We hunted that road and one near it and found a Massasauga our first night there.


I've never seen a pygmy or Massasauga out in the wilds. I did have a dumbass friend who decided he needed one, bought it over my half hour argument against him buying it & he calls me 2 hours later to rush him to the hospital. He's my friend but completely irresponsible. Luckily the snake tagged him on his little finger & eventually a hunk of black dead skin fell off his finger. No - I don't go herping with him - don't even tell him I'm going!!
