West Texas Trip Report

Visted Jeff Davis, Brewster, Terrell, Pecos, and Crockett counties in the last 4 days. Weather was good in Davis Mountains, but circumstances prevented me from giving them a thorough going over. The July rains had everything blooming and my hay-fever was killer. Mosquitos were bad also. Plus, they were resurfacing my favorite road. Spent most of my time in Brewster, Terrell, and Pecos counties.
Herp activity was slow until after midnight due to surface temperatures. Moon was waxing and bright, but did not rise until 22:00 or there abouts. Didn't seem to affect my herping (although I didn't see any gray-bands). The species I noted are as follows:

C. molossus
C. atrox
C. scutulatus
M. f. testaceus
T. c. cyrtopsis
T. m. marcianus
T. cucullata

S. p. poinsetti
S. u. consobrinus
U. ornatus schmidti
C. g. gularis
C. i. heptagrammus

B. punctatus
S. marnockii
H. arenicolor

It was an interesting trip made more so by a few little side excursions and the camping escapades in Davis Mts. State Park. Met some nice folks and one interesting dog. Talked to a deputy sheriff in Pecos County who was very interested in the necropsy I was performing on a dead molossus at 02:00 in the morning. We both learned something as a result.
