Last Saturday, eight enthusiastic LAS members went on an a search for amphibians in the Laramie Range.  And we were successful!  Led by Andy Gygli, a graduate student at the University of Wyoming, we ventured around a pond in Happy Jack and found Leopard frog and Tiger Salamander tadpoles, as well as an adult Leopard Frog!  We also saw three garter snakes along the banks of the pond.

We hope to have more herp trips like this in future, to learn more about the amphibians and reptiles of Wyoming!
