The Shrunken Realm of the Yellow-bellied Slider

Even when half grown the patterns and colors of most yellow-bellied sliders is bright and precise. Worry not! Populations of the yellow-bellied slider are alive and well. It is only the ongoing name games between geneticists and Linnaean biologists that have dictated the changes, shrunken the realm, if you will, of this venerable, wide spread, […]

Florida Bog Frog

It took the combined scrutiny of Jake and me to find this adult male bog frog in its grassy home. In 1985 the Florida bog frog, Rana okaloosae, Florida’s smallest ranid frog was described by Paul Moler. Adult at about 2” svl, because of its unique call (a repetitive single note) this tiny greenish ranid […]

Gulf Coast Spiny Softshells

The 2 dark lines that define this subspecies are easily seen on this young example. Although softshelled turtles hadn’t figured into our stop on the Pascagoula River, Jake and I were both delighted when we saw a female Gulf Coast spiny softshell, Apalone spinifera aspera, sunning on a snag near the shore. That it was […]

Ringed and Pearl River Map Turtles

Yellow-blotched and Pascagoula Map Turtles

The yellow-blotched map turtle is another aptly named beauty. Navigator Jake takes his direction giving seriously. With the map turtle atlas open on his lap, he sought directions from both the GPS and his cellphone. OK—go west, next left, next right, 2nd left, next left… and magically, just ahead of us was a bridge. We […]
