    When do you usually see newborns? There’s a decent population of cerastes within walking distance of my house, and I’d love to find some little juvies out there before heading off to college.

    Start looking in about two weeks. I find them often right around the first of August, and throughout the month.

    Thanks! Haven’t had any luck yet, but there’s a female I’ve been keeping an eye on who appears gravid. Out of curiosity, would you say that comparing the black and white tail markings could be an effective means to identify individual cerastes from each other? It seems that each sidewinder I’ve seen so far this year has had pretty unique tail patterns.
