So today my uncle came across these baby tortoises crawling in the undergrowth. Testudo graeca, is their specie's name. I was surprised local tortoises still exist, but most importantly reproduce! 
Their numbers dropped alarmingly during the last decades mainly due to habitat loss, and as they are being massively poached to be mainly sold in Souks (traditionnal markets) to tourists.
These have been lucky, I released them in a clearing deeper in the forest.

You really can't imagine how vast this volcanic area stretches until you get a birds eye view from the rim of Amboy Crater. Just an awesome sight and a pretty lady 😉. Another thing please respect public land and protected areas. Spelling out your initials and who you love in volcanic rock in the bottom of the Crater is disrespectful and it's also against policies of protected areas. It took me quite a while to break all them up, which I do every year, and try to make it look like normal landscape again. If you see other doing this please tell them to stop vandalizing protected areas. Thank you.

2 racers. Behind the frazzled, unshaven goon, you can see a good example of where to find racers (and a bunch of other snakes): border habitat where brushy woods meet open field, and the tin pieces right at that border. Cooler temps are good for flipping tin, warmer temps are better for boards and carpet. Perfect conditions and habitat.

Here's Nayara (biologist and translator!) sizing up the Anaconda , two and a half metres long... nice teamwork! We are currently in the 'land of the snakes' continuing our search to build up our DNA samples.... #expeditionanaconda #anaconda #anacondasofinstagram #sucuri #zoology #herpetology #wildlifelover #wildlifeseekers #wildlifebiologist #brazil🇧🇷
What strange weather today in the Lake District, blue skies and so warm on the sun, but snow on the mountains! We found quite a few Viviparous lizards and a slow worm so not too bad #herpetology #zoology #uk #nature #wildlife #cumbria #north #england #snow #mountains #sun
Woo! Yep an Anaconda! They're moving up in size! We got this snake on our very last day of our last 2 week trip into the jungle. It was worth the wait. Thanks to the local fishermen who came across it while fishing the Xingu River. We got our DNA samples and released her back into the wild... #expeditionanaconda #wildlifelover #wildlife_seekers #wildlifebiologist #herpetology #zoology #anaconda #sucuri #brazil🇧🇷

so, it transpires that playing the "sitting and waiting" game works extremely well with adders. This beauty came out just over a foot away from me and didn't seem to mind at all! Definitely trying this technique again soon.

bad phone picture of one of the adders found yesterday morning; at this time of the year they have just completed their "out of hibernation" shed, so they are all looking extremely shiny and beautiful :)

Spot the snake - easy version ;) yesterday's wonderful spring morning had everybody out enjoying it! 
Adders are easily my favourite British reptile, they're much less skittish than grass snakes and have a huge variation in colour. -

While Puff Adders (Bitis arietans) might be as common as Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes (Crotalus atrox) are throughout sections of their range, they are still a treat to see. This one is from the Karoo region of South Africa, where clay filled red sands influence the colors of many of the herps, including the "Puffies". While some call them the "Poor man's Gabon Viper" I really like encountering this species. Incredibly pugnacious, noisy enough to earn their name... Puff Adders are definitely a favorite for me. #puffadder #herp #herpetology #biology #herping #snake #venomous #southafrica

Another ratsnake. It tried to bite a few times, which I dodged with the reflexes of a sloth, but eventually calmed down. I couldn't get it to sit still so I just cradled it in my loving arms. Shedding was imminent (for the snake).

A baby Blanding's Turtle! This little creature emerged from its egg late last summer, and is growing fast! Ontario turtles spend their winters in brumation, but at the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre, many hatchlings are kept and fed overwinter so that they have a headstart come spring. The OTCC raises Blanding's Turtles for two years before they are released, as Blanding's are a Threatened species and need all the help we can give them 🐢 #blandingsturtle #turtle #turtles #reptile #emydoideablandingii #turtlesofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #reptilesofig #reptilesofinsta #animalphotography #reptilephotography #herpetology #wildlife #ontariowildlife #discoverontario #wildliferescue #wildliferehab #wildlifeeducation #nature #naturegram #conservation #speciesatrisk

Western diamondback rattlesnake ("atrox," meaning crotalus atrox, is what we call them for brevity) that my friend Ken and I found yesterday. While not 100% certain, if the snake has 3 black bands or fewer (not counting the band touching the rattle), it's usually female, which is what I'm guessing here. Notice the eye is somewhat dilated, not totally vertically elliptical/"cat eyes," so that rule is not the best one for identifying pit vipers.
