"Random Acts of Herping" or "I forgot to post these at some point"
So I'm bored and decided to write another entry, because I have some unaccounted-for pictures and stories. One I've literally put off/forgot about for a few years. Me totally striking out on the Wissahickon with Princess Princess and I walked around the lak...

"What I lake about you..." or "I didn't know bullfrogs made that sound!"
Greetings and salutations, oh dedicated readers! I haven't posted in what feels like an age, nor have I gotten out to even write about it lately, but here we are. First post of 2016...and 2017...! So what it's almost 5 months into the year, and then a whole...

"Something Old, Something Newt" or "A Bad Day in the Woods is Better Than a Good Day in the Office"
My first herping entry of 2015! Pretty late considering, but better late than never. Since this will include not one, but TWO herping excursions, it'll be chock full o' pictures and probably really wordy anyway. Don't get too excited and hold on to your but...

"All My Friends Are Turtles" or "People, let me tell you 'bout my best frog"
Since I totally blew it and didn't go out since the springtime (and my last post), I figured I'd introduce everyone to my home herps: my pets. It's beyond the point where I can get out on a relatively warm day and unearth anything else but regret for not ma...

"Vernal Pool Party" or "What the Eft?: Part II"
So far, I haven't been able to get out to herp in 2014 due to my schedule sucking ass, and March and most of April being pretty damn cold. We've gotten used to milder "winters" over the last few years, which means spring used to snicker  come a little ear...

"Herpin' 'Round the World" or "Reptile Reminiscing"
With all of this snow and wintry business, there's been no warm windows to go out and winter herp, or even consider doing so. We've had so much snow, low temperatures, and general icy nastiness, herping in Pennsylvania is a distant memory...or dream...or wh...

"Plenty o' Pocono Pickerels" or "We have treefrogs north of the Mason-Dixon Line?"
NOTE: So because I'm stupid and don't pay attention, it turns out that my short entry on toads up at work was still chronologically correct in relation to this (and future) stories. I guess that's not a bad thing. I has the dumb. But I digress... September ...

I'm currently sitting alone, bored at work, so I decided to shake the herping timeline I've been adhering to up a bit and throw a curve ball. I'm deviating from the timeline to talk about herping here at work. I like to live on the edge, I know. This one wi...
