New favourite shirt!

I'm so lucky to work part of the year in south Alabama where my research on fence lizards means I spend a lot of time hanging out in incredible longleaf pine forests. These forests are also an important habitat for the rare eastern indigo snake. The Alabama Natural Heritage Program teamed up with @redclaybrew to make a great beer and these awesome shirts to benefit the indigo snake conservation work going on at Auburn University! Saving snakes by drinking beer and wearing cool shirts is a big win for me. Read about this partnership here: http://www.oanow.com/news/auburn-university-s-museum-of-natural-history-and-red-clay/article_e5b5b248-f987-11e6-b4fa-f3e59b63f5cc.html

My big female Eastern Indigo having a soak! This dis is actually a plastic plant pot holder from Home Depot but does the job very well.

I’ve been taking a break from my digital studies to start doing the whole Inktober thing. But, I started getting worried I was going to get rusty! Slept in, did some of my traditional animation homework, completed another frog, and started my eastern indigo snake! Quite the day and ALOT of art! Angell is VERY productive when she gets enough sleep! πŸ˜…

8' Male Eastern Indigo 
I'm not a big snake guy but these are a must have. 
These make some of the best pet snakes ever.

Picked this boy up from the one and only John Michels @blackpearlreptiles

Had the absolute privilege to meet this #drymarchoncouperi #easternindigo today. Superb creature, one day I will own one, one day.
Happy Thursday everyone! I realized today that i'm pretty low on pictures of the geckos. It seems like i've been posting the same few lately, so i don't really want to keep doing that. I might be able to snap a few new ones later today, but if not i'll be taking some this weekend. I also will be listing a couple things for sale over on my facebook. If there's anyone you'd like to see pics of, let me know!

As far as I’m concerned, this is the holy grail of southern squamates.
This individual was weighed, measured, and pit tagged in order to provide scientists with data to create better informed management plans to aid in the preservation of this threatened species.

Eastern Indigo Snake 
This snake is one of the most iconic species of the southern longleaf pine forests and is often found cohabitation with gopher tortoises in their burrows which they use as thermal refugia.

Got my first Eastern Indigo snake the other day! He is doing great and has already eaten for me. His name is Hannibal. This guy will be a big help for educational talks with his species being federally protected. #drymarchon #drymarchoncouperi #easternindigo #indigo #hannibal #snake #snakesofinstagram #snakes #colubrid #colubridsofinstagram #colubridae #lordoftheforest

Portrait of 15R096. This guy was ready to hit the woods and wouldn't remain still for a full body photo. #easternindigosnake #drymarchon #drymarchoncouperi #threatenedspecies #conservation #snakesofinstagram
A moment in the conservation of the eastern indigo snake, Drymarchon couperi. Recorded is the release of 15R096, a captive bred and reared two year old male. He was hatched at @indigo_center and cared for by @she11ster, later transferred to Zoo Atlanta. A gopher tortoise burrow was selected as a release point to provide an immediate refuge with a moderate micro-climate. From here who knows where he will go?  #easternindigosnake #indigosnake #drymarchon #drymarchoncouperi #reintroduction #conservation #nature #longleafpineforest #threatenedspecies #snakesofinstagram

One of our eastern indigo snakes using a broken terracotta pot as shelter from the heat. We are continuously finding new props and adapting our outdoor enclosures to find what the snakes like best. It seems that surface hides are a preference as well as wire grass to curl around. Sometimes the snakes will use their heads to dig their own holes under the vegetation to escape the heat even when a cool hide is provided.

Angolan Pythons are apparently delicious. At least my Red Throat Eastern Indigo thinks they are.

Wanted to show Persephone's underside, she has a white chin and put black body with iridescent  scales that catch in the flash or sunlight. Also not that no split scales can be seen and she is in perfect condition! With her eating rate and growth I expect some offspring that will be phenomenal. #easternindigosnake #indigosnake #drymarchoncouperi #snake #snakes #snakesofinstagram #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #reptile #scales #blackgirls #pet #exoticpet #conservation #breed #colubrid #herpetology #views #vetlife

16 out of 17 baby Indigos hatched out happy and healthy, but one died after pipping. He never made it out of the egg. I finally removed him and found him dead so of course he is now a wet specimen for my personal collection.

❌Feeding Video❌Had to feed big girl Persephone, 3 rat pups was light work and she will want more very soon hahaha I typically opt for more small prey items at a feeding session then just one larger one but that's just my opinion. 🐍πŸ’ͺ🏽 #persephone #drymarchoncouperi #easternindigosnake #indigosnake #snake #snakes #snakesofinstagram #reptiles #reptile #reptilesofinstagram #colubrid #herpetology #pet #exoticpets #animals #scales #blackgirl #views #vetlife #conservation

Took my girl Persephone out for a walk, eventually she will breed with Dionysus an unrelated red throats but this season she will be bred to a friends male. Hopefully I will have some success!

It doesn't get old. Waking up to freshly hatched Eastern Indigos (Drymarchon couperi) is better than coffee.

Indigos are definitely one of the coolest snakes in the US! Their extra shiny scales along with the contrasting red/orange around their head make them just beautiful! They're also little garbage disposals, eating everything that moves. From rattlesnakes to lizards to turtles and rodents. Unfortunately, habitat loss is having a huge affect for these guys and they're quickly becoming one of the rarest and most endangered snakes in the southeast.
