Overall, fifteen (15) different species were observed and collected during our stay at the Gries Ranch. While the numbers may not be especially astounding, it is the consensus of the participants that we have probably only scratched the surface of the herpetofauna found on the Gries Ranch and that additional field work on the ranch is in order, especially if it can be accomplished at a time when the area has had more moisture than was the case during our stay.
All taxonomic names in this report follow Brian I. Crother et al, Scientific and Standard English Names of Amphibians and reptiles of North America North of Mexico With Comments Regarding Confidence In Our Understanding, 6th Edition, 2008.
The officers and HCU members participating in this field meet express our appreciation to George Gries for making the Gries Ranch available to us and for his hospitality during our stay there.
