Steve,

You tease us with all of those numbers and no species names. I want to
know the reptile and amphibian species you've seen (I've never followed
fully aquatic groups very much), and at least where you saw the first one.
At first it sounded like you saw 50 Western Toads that evening! I then
realized you must have meant it was your 50th species of combined reptiles,
amphibians, and fish. It also took me a bit to see that your jargon "ARF",
referred to amphibians, reptiles, and fish.
