In anticipation of an upcoming article on the Salt Marsh Snake (Nerodia clarkii) in Herp Nation Magazine Issue #18, and the (hopefully) near completion of the data-gathering phase of my research on clarkii in southern Florida, I’m going to review some of my experiences with the species. The memory function only ‘remembers’ for a few minutes, if you turn it on hours later it will start at the beginning of the medium – low – high circuit. Whether you succeed of fail with keeping a species, this information can prove to be invaluable; after all, nothing will be learned without these details being put down on paper. clarkii compressicauda.) Why are Mangrove Snakes the black sheep of the family? There is a demand for them, and some of us are disappointed in much ballyhooed freeze-dry technique.

Might be something you all would be interested in. That creature which, like Captain Nemo before us has caused us to mount our vessels, arm ourselves with a mighty spear (or snake hook) and depart on worldwide ventures, bent on killing (or photographing) our White Whale. This allows us to provide an environment that can be shared with the Uroplatus without having to make too many modifications to our workshop.
