2013 Wish List

Postby samwiise » December 21st, 2012, 11:38 am

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! :ugeek:

Great idea! I think I'll have to go with...

1) Snake - Eastern Milksnake
2) Lizard - Mimic Glass Lizard
3) Frog - Pine Barrens Treefrog
4) Salamander - Yonahlossee Salamander
5) Turtle - Alligator Snapping Turtle

Have to agree with you on number 5!

Yes! A good start knocking one off my list in early February. This Florida sand skink was an awesome find. My girlfriend Steph found it in some sand at the base of a tree. One down, four to go! :mrgreen:
