Instead of heading back home through Julian we decided to head down S2 towards Ocotillo in hopes it would be warmer and we would see more herps. We found this DOR coachwhip.
One of of about 15 geckos we found on the roads, this one recently hit and tail was still moving.
Took the kids skating in Julian then headed down into the desert for road cruising. Only saw a few DOR geckos on road until we got into Borrego Springs then we found this DOR sidewinder. Temp was around mid 70's.
I was hoping with the warm up that snakes might be moving but the only one we saw was this DOR juvenile rattler. We also saw a tree frog and toad but did not stop for pics.
