Theives try to steal adult Galapagos Tortoise, maim it instead.
(Jeff Barringer) - Monday, Jun 07, 2021


Two thieves in a Chevrolet Pickup Truck attempted to steal
this adult Galapagos tortoise from Gerry Fife's breeding facility in Arizona

At 2:30a.m this morning two thieves attempted to steal an adult Galapagos Tortoise from the tortoise breeding facility in Arizona run by long time tortoise breeder Jerry Fife. The breeder sized female tortoise, a critically endangered species, was severely injured in the process and the decision was made to humanely euthanize her. A reward is now being offered to bring the two thieves to justice and video of the attempt is available on Jerry's facebook page. It is hoped that between the herp community and the law enforcement community the miscreants can be identified and arrested. This is a devastating loss for Jerry who is one of the few successful private breeders of the species in the United States. Captive Galapagos tortoises, natives of the Galapagos Islands, can live up to 177 years in captivity and are the largest species of tortoise in existence. Some may weigh over 900lbs.

This is just one of a number of recent reptile thefts in the United States from outdoor captive reptile breeding facilities, causing many of those facilities to tighten their security.

Everglades Rat Snakes
(Richard Bartlett) - Monday, Jan 17, 2022


The red tongue is 1 criterion for determining an Everglades Rat Snake

Since that day some 65+ years ago, when on a herping trip with Gordy Johnston from our homes in MA to the FL Everglades, I first saw a Everglades rat snake, then known as Elaphe obsoleta rossalleni, it has been my favorite USA species.

Since that first sighting several adverse things have happened to the comparatively small range of the snake: the despoiling of the glades being one, the removal of an exotic tree species (Australian pines) that had been accepted by the big orange snakes, the draining of the water table, the advent of sugarcane and sod farms, and the resulting genetic pollution of the Everglades rat snake by the yellow rat snake, being others. Today it is almost impossible to find a truly orange rat snake that shows all of the characteristics that define the Everglades subspecies, but occasionally you can still be lucky.
