: I'm in the Asheboro area. Been here about 2 months-I've cruised a few copperheads at night on country roads right by my house.They are common if the conditions are right. I've seen several more DOR's and I know where the horridus are just haven't had the time to really search for them. I don't hunt alot in the summer, but if you drop me a line I might be up for some nite cruising.

: RE: sandhills-been there once and saw a DOR pine snake that broke my heart-a BIG female and alot of DOR E.obsoleta and alot of lizards. Got some good tin spots down there for fall or spring.

: I would be interested in hearing from other 'hot herpers' in the area.

I've been here just over three years. I've been to the NC zoo in Ashboro. The zoo has has a descent reptile exhibit. The countryside out that way is beautiful- ralling hills with lots of forest and rock. Ashboro is about a 45 minute to an hour for me. I live in Chapel Hill, so I'm close to 64 which runs directy to Ashboro.

Yes, night crusing sounds good. I'm presently busy with a summer course, but am available for half a day on Saturdays. I'll be completely free from Aug. 2nd- 18th.

Regarding the Sandhills, I've seen a black racer, green anoles, ground skinks, and fence swifts - nothing much to brag about. I think I may have heard a pigmy rattlesnake, but can't say for sure in light of having never before encountering one and not actually seeing the animal.
