Allie: "Let's make it plain and simple: if you wouldn't do it to another human you shouldn't do it to an animal"
Amy: "Oh and, who are you to judge who has more right to life than another? It's time everyone sat on an equal playing field"

Not my greatest photo by far (due to excitement and the wrong lens) but 2 excellent herpers narrowed this 2 meter cobra down to the snouted cobra (Naja annulifera) or the forest cobra (Naja melanoleuca), can anyone distinguish between the 2 based on a photo?
A famosa "cobra-cipó" (Philodryas olfersii), cobrinha inofensiva (porra nenhuma), sendo geralmente ditada como uma serpente inofensiva, pelo fato de não ter "cabeça triangular" como dizem por aí, ou por não ser colorida como uma coral. Essa serpente possui dentição opstóglifa, logo é um animal peçonhento, e tem capacidade de injetar sua toxina, que possui uma ação semelhante a peçonha presente nas jararacas, tendo uma ação anticoagulante. #Colubridae#Philodryas#olfersii#opistóglifa#bio#herpetology
Arizona Ridge-Nosed Rattlesnake from last season, the first of 3 montane species I had ever seen in the wild. @danielcarhuff hiked this little fella up no more than 20 minutes into our adventure. Not long after I stumbled across a Rock Rattlesnake on the hunt; little did we know there was another about 2 feet from the first! Ended the day with 3 Klaubs, and 1 Willardi. Will always be a fond memory of mine; thanks again boys 🙏🏾 @julestwyman & @danielcarhuff
The Kirtland's snake is a state endangered species, and we're honored to protect them and their habitat at Beanblossom Bottoms Nature Preserve. Our Assistant Director John Lawrence discovered this little one while replacing a board on the trail yesterday. Notice the characteristic black head.
