A really awesome ornate wood turtle (Rhinoclemmys pulcherrima rogerbarbouri) from a wooded slope in Sonora, Mexico. We turned up a total of six of these largely terrestrial turtles on our Sonora trip last fall.

Long-nosed Dragon (Gowidon longirostris), West MacDonnell Ranges, NT. This gravid female was basking beside the walking track, so I was able to sneak up close to photograph her in-situ with the wide angle lens.

macu-spot-um i flipped in macon county, al on a fairly productive salamandering day. i didn't get my primary target (montanus) but i can't complain much about finding: 7 eurycea hillisi, 5 ambystoma opacum, 1 e. guttolineata, 1 desmognathus conanti, 1 plethodon grobmani, and 1 a. maculatum.

These small Pleths are often difficult to photograph given their diminutive size and their propensity to move as soon as a camera is pointed at them.

Toad migration 2017 is here. Male and female Common Toad (Bufo bufo) straight after hibernation heading to a nearby pool on the edge of the forest. Toads are particular about their breeding sites and often migrate to their ancestral breeding pond every year. This couple was already in amplexus, so the female had to carry her partner all the way to the pond. #toad #paddentrek #migration #hibernation #throwback #fieldwork #fieldherping #herpetology #nederland #super_holland #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #instanaturefriends_ #herping #herp #europe #explore #wildlife #natgeoyourshot #amphibian #netherlands #mooistefotovannederland #animallovers #wildlifephotography #instanature #animal #nature #instagood #reptile #reptilesofinstagram

From yesterday's field herping adventure/run. Lol
Caught two out of the four snakes I found! Got quite the audience while trying to round up a blotched water snake, but he was too entwined in the brush for me to get and I really didn't want to yank him out hardcore. Went tearing down the trail after a yellow bellied racer after hearing two cyclists causing a ruckus about it. Those suckers are FAST! Couldn't get a proper hold WHILE running! 😂
But at the end of the day I caught this awesome Eastern Hognose who gave me his best "cobra" display. So entertaining and cool to watch. Chilled out after a little while. Then had the opportunity to catch this juvenile water snake. Such gorgeous markings and pretty feisty! I love looking for these guys and if I didn't have classes on these days I'd be out for way longer! Oh and  found a small nest of Harvestmen. ;3

A Cuban white-fanned anole, many anoles in Cuba look almost identical due to their similar shape and size and their ability to change colour. Usually the only way to tell the exact species is by looking at the colour of its dewlap which is only present in males. This white dewlap made it easy to identify this anole as a Cuban white-fanned anole

Vipers of Europe.
Asp Viper - Vipera aspis atra, this concolor female was the first one I found on that location in the French Alps.

Fully grown this snake is over 2m long. It's a voracious predator of birds and their nests. 
But this one is a neonate, it's 25cm long and is probably just about big enough to eat some insects! Those orange eyes only last whilst they're juveniles, fading to grey as they grow larger. ————————————————————————

Just took this about 30 mins ago. It's the same female from several photos back. I call her Gray girl and have been watching her since 2011 for sure but maybe longer. Today she was in the perfect spot for the first rays of filtered sun for the day. She had been sitting a foot away in the other direction for 3-4 days after she left the rock in the photo I posted last week.

I took the day off of work for what has become a birthday week tradition - hiking with our kids' nature group. We went to Chantry Flats and one of the girls found this awesome Pacific Ring-Necked Snake. I've been trying to find one for about three years now, so this was a treat. 
Technically these guys are semi-venomous, but they're rear fanged so they're not too dangerous to handle. This one was pretty big - most of the ones that I've seen pictures of are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.

There is a mass movement of Reds during the early spring rains, I've found a few dozen over the past couple nights. This one's scar caught my eye and led me to take a couple shots.
