If you have your email account set up to reject mail from anyone who is not on your list, and you want to receive a reply from me, then PUT ME ON YOUR LIST before sending me mail! It is extremely frustrating to take the time to reply only to have my response rejected after I send it. I will not follow your sites's steps to add myself to your list because that often does not work and you should do this, not me.
If you want to submit photos for use on the site, please ask me first.
This site has been made so much better by the addition of pictures from many different photographers. I am always looking for pictures that illustrate something about an animal that is not already illustrated here or pictures of an animal from a location that is not shown here, but keep in mind that I don't have the time or the space to put up every picture I receive and please don't be offended if I decline your offer.
I do not have any herps for sale.
I don't give out advice on buying animals, either.
There are plenty of good sources for this information on the web. Try Kingsnake.com for starters.
I cannot give out advice on caring for captive herps.
See the Pet Care Links page for some places to get much better information about herp husbandry than I can give you.
I do not give out specific locations where you can find herps.
I enjoy discussing herping in California, but I don't really have time to be your travel guide and help you plan your trip. Try posting a request for information on one of the field herping forums. Don't be surprised if nobody will tell you exactly where to go since many people are protective of their spots because of damage caused by careless fieldherpers.
