The Tokay Gecko (Gekko gecko). A very large arboreal gecko found from Northeast India, through Southeast Asia, to Western New Guinea. The most vocal of all lizards, it has an extensive repertoire of squeaks, barks, clicks and hisses. In fact, it gets its name from the extremely loud and distinctive 'to-kay' call that males make during the breeding season; a familiar sound in forested, rocky and urban areas. It has adapted well to its new urban habitats and is common in and around human habitations where it finds shelter and a plentiful supply of food. It is often found hunting insects around lights and can actually be an asset as vermin control. A very agile gecko, able to negotiate widows and ceilings, with a fierce reputation, and a formidable bite for its size. Unfortunately, there are a number of issues taking a toll on their numbers; it being particularly spectacular therefore popular in the pet trade, also in high demand for traditional Chinese medicine. It is considered a delicacy in some cultures and is shrouded in many superstitions both good and bad. This particular individual, a small juvenile, was brought to my attention with an excited "Dad, Dad, Dad, a BLUE lizard" by my young son who spotted it one night cruising over boulders in the landscaped garden of a sea side resort, busily hunting insects by electric light.

Mighty Crown 🐍👑
Golden-crowned Snakes (Cacophis squamulosus) always seem to put on a fearsome display when disturbed. Being a reasonably small, slender species without potent venom lends to these snakes adopting such postures as a means to scare off predators. This beauty was the largest of three individuals I found just the other night! As a testament to their ability to remain unseen, the two people I was walking with walked straight past these snakes on the edge of the trail. They blend right in and can easily be mistaken as a stick at first glance. Moments like those really make me wonder how many animals I don't see when I go walking...!

A SPOTTED BLACK SNAKE (Pseudechis guttatus) in its black-soil habitat in the Brigalow Belt, QLD. We came across a few Spotted Blacks one sunny morning. One, we believe, was stalking an Eastern Brown snake for breakfast however we unknowingly disturbed them causing the brown to flee down a hole. It would have been epic to witness the battle as they were about the same size.

Stunner of a Lowland Copperhead (Austrelaps superbus) from Mornington Peninsula, Victoria a while back. These cold tolerant snakes range from dark grey-brown to rich coppery red like this one. Saw a couple of this colour. One getting released and another basking. Sadly didn’t see any in Tasmania where they are one only of 3 species of snakes found there. As with their Latin name, they are literally superb snakes and that’s what they were historically known as. Like all copperheads they prefer colder environments. #lowlandcopperhead #copperhead #lowlandcopperheadsnake #austrelaps #austrelapssuperbus #elapid #australiansnake #australiansnakes #snakes #snake #snek #snakesofinstagram #australianwildlife #wildsideaustralia #wildside #wildlife #macrophotography #herping #victoria #reptilesofinstagram #reptile #reptiles #australianreptiles

Here I was having a shower this morning 
When my housemate says man ya gotta come out .
Ran outside wrapped in a shirt and there's a bloody tiger snake crawling up the wall into the bathroom window 
Went back in wacked me jocks on backwards .
Came back out and waited for it to come out 
Snake has finally pissed off back into the bush

Eastern Long Neck Turtle (Chelodina longicollis) #herping #wildlifephotography #easternlongneckturtle #chelodinalongicollis
Eastern Long Neck Turtles (Chelodina longicollis) are a pain in the arse to photograph. They tuck their heads and legs into the shell as a predator avoidance system, as there is not much that can get though that tough shell. Unfortunately these beautiful animals often get hit by cars, and no shell can beat that. Please watch out for Turtles on the road when driving, and gently help them across the road in the direction they where heading.

Atelopus spumarius It's a species of great ecological importance and its presence is indicative of good state of preservation of the forest, unfortunately it is an endangered species whose population have decreased drastically due to the fragmentation of its habitat and anthropogenic actions. #free_and_alife #frog #atelopus #life #science #conservation #herping #herpetology #biology #expedition

Sluggish from the winter cold, this western pond turtle was easy to approach and didn’t move until I was inches away.

The Marine #Iguana (Amblyrhynchus cristatus) feeds exclusively on algae. Large males such as this one will #dive in rocky waters looking for food whilst females and smaller males generally feed in the intertidal zone.

Restricted only to the #Galapagos, these guys are considered vulnerable and their population is strongly correlated with el nino events. El nino events increase the water temperature and subsequently reduce the amount of growing algae. This can reduce some lizard populations by 90%. #1frame4nature #sunrise

First herps of the year!!!! Marlbed salamander (Ambystoma opacum) next to a false turkey tail mushroom (Stereum hirsutum). Marbled salamanders like all salamanders are amphibians meaning that they have moist glandular skin which they use to breathe. Marbled salamanders are a type of mole salamander that spend most of their lives underground. They only come up above the ground to breed and lay their eggs during the warm rains of spring and fall. #amphibians #herpetology #herping #conservation

Here is another photo of a Ranitomeya toraro photographed in-situ as it made it's way through the vegetation in its territory.  Photographing these little frogs can be a bit of a nightmare: they're small, they're fast, they're usually found in areas of dense vegetation, and they're skittish and quick to escape when they feel threatened.  However, I really like them so I made a concentrated effort to photograph them in-situ. This wasn't met with immediate success but many escaped frogs and many profanities later I got some shots of them going about their business. I'd have loved to spend more time in the area and get some shots of more interesting behavior but maybe next time.

The most beautiful frog in all the land: Green-and-black poison dart frog! In Bocas Del Toro, Panama, this species has varying color morphs and their markings are all different as well- I really liked this guy's head spot and bands. He wasn't much bigger than thumb-nail size. So beautiful! #panama  #frog  #frogs  #frogsofinstagram  #amphibian  #herps  #herping  #poisondartfrog  #dartfrog  #beautyeverywhere  #socool  #conservation  #environment  #conserve  #wildlife  #wildlifephotography  #neverstopexploring  #discoverwildlife  #optoutside  #cute  #dailydoseofcute  #nature  #centralamerica  #getoutside  #animals  #macros  #macrophotography  #tiny  #sohandsome  #frogger 
Jelly fell asleep under the waterfall. It must feel so good on her shell.

Saindo dos répteis e entrando nos anfíbios! Uma das espécies dos famosos sapinhos coloridos. Essa da foto é uma Adelphobates castaneoticus, apesar do colorido, não possui um veneno muito forte como outras espécies... #amphibian #herpetology #herping #zoology #amazonrainforest #fundobranco #macrophotography #wildlifephotography #brazil #canon #poison #frogs #nature #fieldwork

Little noodle under anesthesia is a perfect time to get up close and personal. This little buddy had his tracker surgically taken out of him (aka aliens abducted him and probed him) and he’s now back out in the field with his wife and kids.
