Field Herp Forum - This thread was originally posted last December and was just bumped up with a new reply. It’s a fascinating look at the Mojave Desert by a scientist who spent a year there studying desert tortoises. From natural science to history to current conditions, and of course, fabulous photos of amazing reptiles and other desert creatures, this thread is a treat for anyone remotely interested in field work, deserts, wild reptiles, or just cool pictures and stories.@ Field Herp Forum
