There are still many pictures and sounds that I would like to have to illustrate California's reptiles and amphibans on this site. Many of these are not easy to find. If you have pictures or sounds of any of the following animals, or anything else that you notice the site is lacking that you'd be willing to send, please contact me.

Scat and other Signs
Some might think this web site is already full of too much fecal material, but nevertheless, if you have any photos of herp scat that you have positively identified and want to sling my way, I'd be most obliged. And if you have pictures of other evidence of herps I don't have - burrows, tracks, footprints, shed skin, or even real signs, like those on my signs page, let me know.
Southern Mountain Yellow-legged Frog (Rana muscosa) Calls
Ensatina defensive hissing sounds.
Northwestern Salamander defensive ticking sounds.
Long-toed Salamander squeaks and clicking sounds.
And any other interesting herp sounds I don't have here yet.
