While Googling for some information tonight, I got sidetracked and searched for an old "friend". Well, it is a lizard, but I am sure you know what I mean. Anyway, I discovered a link to an old paper that I co-authored years ago.
It was fun to see the old paper again and to remember how we traveled to Laredo in the heat of summer to collect some specimen of Laredo Striped Whiptail lizards, Cnemidophorus laredoensis, for the study.
Trying to catch these lizards is not easy under any circumstances. They are extremely fast and evasive and the hotter it is they more fired up they are. On the day we spent in Laredo collecting them, it was extremely hot and very humid.
