I'm a herpetologist by training but a naturalist at heart. My masters thesis is looking into the Panamint alligator lizard, Elgaria panamintina. In particular I'm focusing on identifying its range and testing out a variety of novel techniques which may benefit the field of herpetology as a whole. I post things that interest me and often post updates on what I'm doing in the vertebrate museum, in the field, or in the lab.

 

Rodenticides are horrific and cause extensive internal bleeding. Don’t use them. Make your home/area rodent proof and then trap (no glue traps! those are equally horrific deaths) and either release (native) or kill (non-native) any remaining “pests”.
I’ve witnessed a coyote necropsy where his entire body cavity was full of so much blood- he had died a slow, excruciating death while a wildlife rehabber tried to help him recover. For those who hate coyotes… it could have just as easily been someone’s pet dog, he was from an area where there are many yard-dogs.
Rodenticides also take the lives of numerous other predators including fishers, owls, house cats, & domestic dogs. It also kills native, non-targets who eat the bait etc.
Don’t use rodenticides!
