HoggyMomma:
I now better understand your plight. Besides the 'critters you mention, in the Bay Area have you come across a number of garter snakes, ringneck snakes, racers, sharp-tailed snakes, gopher snakes, fence lizards, and alligator lizards when you have been turning cover objects? If you have not been encountering most if not all of those species, then something is not quite right.

I was born and raised in Oakland until I was 15. So during my childhood days, I encountered all of those species when making searches. I never did observe a boa as my searches were not in boa habitat somewhat higher up in the Oakland / Berkeley hills.

At the present time, a survey at higher elevations on the Tejon Ranch property (between Bakersfield and L.A.), is planned for May 6th and I am scheduled to attend. The last two years were washed-out due to inclement weather conditions. My tentative plans were to leave Corvallis on May 3rd and conduct searches in S. Calif. on the 4th and 5th before attending the Tejon Ranch outing where it is hope that the boa can be documented on that property. But I can change my plans to some degree

If you and your husband are free for half a day on Saturday the 5th (or possibly Tuesday the 9th.), we could meet somewhere in the East Bay Area and I could take you to boa habitat. On the 5th, I have to leave early enough to make it down to my destination in S. Calif. that evening where I plan to stay over night in order to be ready for the Tejon excursion the morning of the 6th.

Instead of discussing plans on this forum, I urge you contact me privately as did Sinnamongirl in Idaho. If you are uncomfortable about sending an email message to a stranger, then good luck.
