Impressive beasts we all agree. Everyone, note the brown tail...Dave, sometimes we have colorful debates on what exactly is a true blacktail, a true unicolor, and what those intermediate phases like yours actually are...separate species or are they all one complex and extreme examples at either end? Keep in mind it was not that long ago that striped Cal kings were thought to be different species than banded (Boyle's), so maybe there will be a revision on this taxa eventually?

Glad you had a fun trip. Vic
