As 2012 comes to a close I can't help hold back my excitement for what is to come in 2013. After having such a successful year, I have high hopes of what new and exciting animals I will find going forward. I was thinking about making this wish list and all I could think of at first were snakes. I realized this was really not fair to all the other fantastic groups out there. Although I am sure I could rattle off at least 20 animals I am hoping to make lifers out of this year, here is a list of my top five, in no particular order.
1) Snake - Eastern Coral Snake Micrurus fulvius fulvius
2) Lizard - Florida Sand Skink Plestiodon reynoldsi
3) Frog - Gopher Frog Lithobates capito
4) Salamander - Two-toed Amphiuma Amphiuma means
5) Turtle - Alligator Snapping Turtle Macrochelys temminckii
These animals alone have me thinking about all the hard work ahead of me. I simply can not wait!
Everyone feel free to contribute and add your wish lists!
