Saw-scaled Viper - Echis khosatzkii
Oman has 4 Echis species, we found 2 of them on our trip, this is the other species from Dhofar.
The scales are more rough and sharper on this Saw-scaled Viper species.

A #sawscaledviper from the fields of northern #SriLanka. This was the final species of the #bigfour for me, and certainly the most inoffensive in appearance. The snake is significantly smaller than the other three, which makes it easy to miss when walking on paths, especially at night. For the reputation they have, I actually found this snake to be quite placid. Even after several minutes of manipulation with a hook, it showed no signs of biting and simply curled up in a small space on the path (as pictured). #fieldherping #herping #herp #herpetology #wild #thebigfour #thewildlifebiologist #nature #snake #snakesofig #snakesofinstagram #venomous #venomoussnakes #reptiles #wildlife #nighthike #dragon #canon #venom

The iconic Central Bearded Dragon (Pogona Vitticeps). We found this large individual on one of the roads through Sturt NP. We didn't have to look very hard to find them as they were  often sitting right in the middle of the road soaking up all the morning sun. #pogonavitticeps #centralbeardeddragon #sturtnationalpark #outbacknsw

A California Desert Tortoise from the Anza Borrego Desert State Park.  This is a rarely encountered population of these endangered, dinosaur aged species.  Many easily reach over 100 years old! They are a no touch species and can not be collected. Rightly so, they love their home just like you do. :-) #fieldherper #fieldherping #herper #herps #rei #nature #wildlife #reptiles #hiking #calherps #getoutside #travel #tortoise #agazzi #endangered #conservation #protected #notouch #leaveonlyfootsteps #takeonlypictures

Limosa Harlequin frog (Atelopus limosus), such a beautiful species. Today, we equipped the frogs with new radio transmitters, so we can continue tracking them in the wild. These individuals were captive bred at @amphibianrescue because they face extinction due to declines from the chytrid fungus

Neonate Northern Watersnake (Nerodia sipedon sipedon). Northern Watersnakes have live birth instead of laying eggs - this little juvenile would have been born last autumn. Young watersnakes have a high-contrast pattern that will become darker and less visible as they age. #northernwatersnake #watersnake #snake #nerodia #nerodiasipedon #nerodiasipedonsipedon #reptile #ontario #ontariowildlife #wildlife #discoverontario #wildliferesearch #wildlifesurvey #conservation #snakesofontario #nature #naturegram #herpetology #herping #fieldherping #fieldwork #getoutdoors #babyanimals

Been almost 3 years since I've seen one of these guys, definitely worth the 2.5 mile hike. I counted 3 total but due to the sun I wasn't able to get very good shots. This is Pennsylvania Area Herp Survey Record #131240. .

Eastern Hercules Beetle (Dynastes tityus) - a species of rhinoceros beetle endemic to the eastern US. Feeds on mainly wood. Besides the stag and long horn beetles, this is one of the more "exotic" heavy bodied species found here in NC. Holding them is tricky since they have a strong grip and hooked legs. Harmless beetle, never bites but like to squeak when picked up. This is the perfect example to being in the right place at the right time, animals do not wait for you to find them. Another example is how diverse our ecosystems are, many think that because we live in NC or on the east our woodlands aren't tropical. Temperate forests are the next thing after the tropical forests, the species are quite similar but aren't necessarily tropical. #zoology #entemology #animals #animalsofinstagram #animalsofig #animalsofinsta #insectsofinsta #insectsofig #insectsofinsta #insects #beetle  #rhinocerousbeetle #herculesbeetle #easternherculesbeetle  #Dynastestityus #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #canon #nikon #naturephotos #naturephotography #herp #herping #fieldherping #education #environment #bio #biology

Who needs some ammo in their life??
This species here was the highlight of my trip. The circumstances were nuts, and on top of that the snake was breathtakingly beautiful as well! I managed to spot another, but it darted into the rocks and I was not willing to take a bite for a photo opp. 
Walked through some of the olive fields surrounding the city and hear a nearly silent hiss; I immediately knew what it was and sure enough, another Vipera ammodytes!! He unfortunately got away, but just seeing another was fine with me! Leaving Croatia this evening, and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome! Until next time!
