for my states test, my partner and i had alot of trouble identifying the different snakes. we looked through the book, (petersons guild to the east) and still didnt find the answer. the picture wasnt really clear, but we were pretty sure it was a water snake. we havnt gotten the test back, but i really want to know what the snake accually was
u get ur tests back? wow. My state never gives them back.
im mad we had to use a book this year. my partner and i started practicing w/ the binder and then half way through relised that we couldnt use it
maybe u should have read the rules first. :|

We had a Section dedicated to frog calls.
one question on our test was a listening part. it sounded like a bullfrog
it might have been. bullfrogs are pretty distinct.

There were two grammar errors in the state test for herpetology in Nebraska. (They used an apostrophe s for plural. ugh.) We had some extra time at the end, so I crossed it out and wrote in what it should have said. Do you think that I might have gotten points off for being an obnoxious grammar nazi like that?

not at all. Grammar is pretty important even if it was on an Amphibians and Reptiles test.

Strath haven here. For nats, probably Sewickley and Bala.

For this event, I dunno, but I'd look at Sewickley, Shady Side, and Bala for the better teams in the state.

I agree on the grammer thing _ those procters are really picky on what you put on the test...and I dont know about you...but our procters are infamous for throwing unexpected curveball tiebreakers... :ugeek:

I'm unsure if it is against the rules to staple a few pages from another guide into my field guide. Any thoughts?
