Finally got to get out and start some real field work today. Caught this Painted Turtle while trying to get a Blanding's to remove a transmitter.

Pacific Gopher Snake (Pituophis C. Cantifer) This big mama was not to happy.  These will always be one of my favorite snakes to find. You never know what you're gonna get. It's always fun when you get a cranky one that puts on a show.

This tiny Sidewinder (Crotalus cerastes) was found around the hottest time of day under a bush in the shade, it had just eaten a lizard and was almost unable to move.
The prey animal was more than half the size of the snake.

Here is a rarity from the Nilgiris. Horseshoe Pit Viper | Trimeresurus strigatus, is restricted to South-Western Ghats and one of the best places to spot this rarity is the Nilgiris. We got extremely lucky to find this one in the evening after a full day's rigorous search. This was during our last year's tour to the Nilgiris. Strangely this specimen 'yawned' quite a few times giving me an opportunity to photograph it in the act.

Rabid wolf spider (Rabidosa rabida) - as pissy as this spider sounds, its actually really nice and just runs fast to escape and catch prey. I don't generally advise anyone to pick spiders up because they still have a chance to bite. Now, if you do find spiders in home, just put a cup over it, slide a post card underneath, pick it up, and put the spider friend outside. They are excellent for the ecosystem, best to not kill them. #bio #biology #zoology #entemology

Orvet all day.  A slow worm Anguis fragilis being slow and fragile in freshly logged forest.  People one considered the secretive Orvet a pest but now slate and black tarp are laid out to invite them to the garden as a nearly invisible biocontrol for crop pests. (This does rhyme as orvet is pronounced "orvey"). #slowworm #herpetology #fieldherping #herpingfrance #orvet #Anguisfragilis

This photo of a male Rough-horned lizard (Ceratophora aspera) from the lowland rainforest of Sri Lanka is my favorite photo of the trip. 
While I was photographing this "dream lizard" I was using my flash to get more details in my image. For a very short moment the big leaf in the background became very bright because the sun came through. In the tropics the sun moves faster so the opportunity was very short. I turned my flash off to photograph the silhouette. The next time the sun came through it was already on another leaf. I got the moment! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

As I've just found out that it's World Turtle Day, I thought I would post this shot of an Amazon Wood Turtle (Rhinoclemmys punctularia), again from the Guyana 2014 trip. 
I clearly remember this encounter as it was in one of the most beautiful environments I have explored to date. During a hike up Surama mountain, I was surrounded by intricate networks of waterfalls being divided by the rocky terrain in secondary rainforest. Our guide called me over to have a look at the attractive Chelonian that he had caught in the fast flowing streams. This shot shows the turtle just poking its head out of its shell to make sure the coast was clear after being put back into its habitat. It then, rather surprisingly, dived into a waterfall and allowed the water to carry it downstream. 
I remember being very excited about this find as it was my first wild turtle!

Happy #worldturtleday everyone. One of my favorite turtles I've ever found is this spotted turtle (Clemmys guttata) hiked up in a marsh by @ethan.untch These are a very rare turtle, and we were all super happy to find it to say the least.

Long-nosed Snake (Rhinocheilus lecontei)- Alameda County, California 
When defensive, Long-nosed Snakes will often loop their bodies into a rigid coil. The smearing of blood-like fluid from the cloaca may also occur. With @waterbod.

Guess What? It's #worldturtleday 
Unfortunately over half of Ontario's turtle species are species at risk, so we have to do as much as we can to save them. So report your sightings. Help protect habitat. And SHOW THESE CREATURES SOME LOVE. .

#Repost from @fabian_photography with @regram.app ... ~It's World Turtle Day!~ This is the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle. They are an important species of healthy coral reefs where they feed on sponges, soft coral, algae and more. Especially their consumption of sponges can have great effects, as it decreases competition for space for reef building corals!
