Awesome pics and stories Paleo. A little hint as far as the hispidus-It seems like the presence of 2 males really get things going. Some of the breeders I know think that is key. Not that they won't if only one male is around but it really increases the probability. That first male is awesome. I am looking for a female from a locale were the animals stay banded as adults such as that guy. I have a really nice banded male but no female. I don't want to breed him to just any locale.

Did your friend get hybrid eggs? Are you familiar with the Ireteba Mtns? Been there a few times and the chucks and the scenery is absolutley beautiful. I work almost exclusive me with red backs from one locale now. Gave up on the varius and hispidus due to space considerations here in MI. Also gave up on the carrot-tails just because I am tired of the e-mails from people saying I am a poacher and I am breaking the law etc. Tired of explaining myself!

Anyway great stuff! Keep it coming as long as you dont get bored! LOL. Also I think NV has the biggest variation in colors of chucks. Red backs in the extreme south then all sorts of black and brown variation. When I was out there in 200 I went to a locale north of the reange maps where there were cindercones and the chucks were almost entirely black-tails and all. Really cool stuff. I was friends with a guy named Steve Ferrand. He was a commercial collector in NV. Man he took me to some cool spots most of which I wouldn't have a clue how to get to now.

Thanks again for sharing.
Tom
