Charlie Sheen couldn't have said it any better. The spoils from my correct guess of Heterodon platirhinos on The Naturalist's Angle have arrived! Jay, with your help I will hopefully become the local authority (at least among the intern residents) on the amphibians and reptiles of my new corner of the country. I'll have to take this baby on down to the Great Dissmal Swamp and see what I can see. Thanks again Jay!


  1. Seriously, this is pretty cool. You really did have something that was "perfect for me."

  2. I really have too many books. You gave me a good reason to get rid of one I really didn't need. I still have a lot more to go.

  3. Oh, by the way, I'm glad to now be linked in a very, very small way to Charlie Sheen.
    I've always had Tiger blood flowing through my veins, but now it's official.

  4. On this website, Jay was linked to Charlie Sheen.

    Charlie Sheen was in the movie "Famous" (2000) with Sandra Bullock.

    Sandra Bullock was in the movie "Loverboy" (2005) with Kevin Bacon.

    Look at you go!

  5. Nice! I don't have that one (my technical work background is in building salamander habitats)!

    Up another 200 miles north, we use White & White's "Reptiles and Amphibians of Delmarva." Solid field guide, but def. won't get into some of the southern species that peak into the GD swamp. PA also has its own herp book, but I never did enough work up there to warrant buying it.

    Let us know if you find it useful!
