Celina - "A very common species that I particularly enjoy is the Six-Lined Racerunner (Aspidoscelis sexlineatus), due to the bright coloration they can get here in the plains. The juveniles are no exception, with their cobalt blue tails. They can be tricky to spot for more than a moment because they are quick and flighty, but if you're patient and careful you can usually snap a voucher photo before they decide they've had enough of your presence."
Devin - "This week was characterized by a front of cool weather spreading across the eastern plains of Colorado. Many species decided to seek shelter under ground, but I did happen upon a Prairie Rattlesnake towards the middle of the day when the temperature had reached it's peak. Ornate Box Turtles are a species that tends to be active in cooler temperatures than many other reptiles, and we did end up seeing a few of them as well."
