Notes

This large adult was found after about 2 hours of searching with Devin Bergquist and Seth Cohen. Devin spotted it just after it had come out of a rock pile. It was morning after a heavy rain, and the pyro seemed to come out just when air and ground temps were becoming ideal. The photo voucher credit goes to Devin Bergquist on this one. Very dark dorsal pattern on this lady, and very healthy. She was digesting a recent meal.

I don't put all of my extensive data of the conditions and habitat of my finds on NAHERP because I'm not too sure who and how many people are really viewing these records, so if you would like more details on the conditions or habitat of this (or any other pyro) please comment.

Great record and I'm glad you are keeping notes of the conditions. So yes, some of these records are being noticed.
