As 2017 comes to a close I wanted to give a big thank you to everyone who helped make this herping season one for the books! Can't wait until next year!

Everyone meet Mr. Shortcake my strawberry🍓 pacman frog🐸. Be sure to swipe to see just how big this dude is!!
.
It's a rare sighting to see Mr. Shortcake outside of his enclosure. Fortunately today was cleaning day so I was able to give him a warm soak and get a great look at him! Love seeing him all clean! Those colors and patterns pop like crazy! Normally he's buried up to his eyes in his enclosure and only comes out late at night to hunt 🐁.

Reservada mi plaza, comienza la aventura. Pues sí, ¡ya me considero Helper! Experiencia que estoy segura cambiará mi vida, mi forma de verla y sobretodo de vivirla... aún quedan unos cuantos meses pero ya estoy deseando llegar a Ghana. Sé que no será fácil, pero también se que no miraré a aquellas personas con pena, si no con actitud de darles la oportunidad de mejorar, de evolucionar, de seguir creciendo, sobretodo la oportunidad de mantener sus derechos vitales. 
Te invito a conocer esta gran organización, sus proyectos y sobretodo lo que consiguen sus voluntarios con gran esfuerzo cada verano. Conoce @yes.we.help y anímate a ser voluntario!! #yeswehelp #herper

Great Plain toad covered in red clay mud. The toad was perched up against some rocks where it patiently picked off any bugs that came it's way. Found in the Panhandle and the western part of the state, these toads are one of my favorite parts of summer. 
During spring and summer, these toad populations explode if we get enough rain. Great Plains toads utilize pools of water,  both temporary and permanent,  as grounds to mate. Driving out on back roads, their calls consume the night and they litter the roads. I always dodge these fat toads.  Toads make me happy y'all!

Check out this in-shed hog from late August. Notice the large bulge on his neck. Not sure if it was an injury or abnormality but he seemed to still move well. Thoughts?

SWIPE RIGHT for more pics and VIDS. One of the "superstars" we encountered on the trail, the Malaysian Leaf Frog (Megophrys nasuta) bears a striking resemblance to a dead/decaying leaf, even possessing blotches on its body that take on the approximate appearance of lichen.

I'm still utterly exhausted two days later, but it was so worth it. @ykchannnnn and Steven Wong, are among the most passionate and approachable herpetologists I know and I am so grateful for the experience. Thanks Steven for the great shot.

Thinking about getting this. If you have #reptilescan i would love to hear your experience with it. I would like to make record keeping easier. I'm using index cards, and it's kind of a pain, especially with pairings and hatchlings. .

On a more serious note, when observing or photographing animals in the wild, it is always a good thing to be mindful of the creatures' comfort level. Be flexible, you will find that some species, and some individuals, are more "agreeable" than others.

The Field Frog is widely distributed and common in many habitats, including secondary forest, marshes, waterlogged areas in grassland and scrubland, as well as urban parks and gardens. Large numbers of males can be heard around puddles and ponds after the rain.

This species often lays its eggs in puddles and other small, shallow pools, a risky gamble; although fishes, which compete with and prey on the tadpoles, are usually absent in these ephemeral pools, there is no guarantee that the puddles will not dry up before the tadpoles can develop into froglets. This is a strategy employed by many of our local amphibians, which produce large numbers of young in response to availability of breeding sites, but invest very little energy towards parental care or ensuring the tadpoles’ survival to adulthood. It doesn’t matter how many broods get wiped out, as long as some puddles remain filled long enough for some offspring to beat the odds and make it long enough to leave the water.

Many of our common frogs and toads are resilient this way - as long as we haven’t poisoned the environment, and as long as greenery and puddles remain abundant and accessible, they will continue to thrive in our midst. But with severe fluctuations in the weather apparently becoming more frequent, combined with continued loss of green spaces and attempts to combat mosquitoes through the often seemingly overzealous (and questionable) use of pesticides, it does raise concerns whether even the smaller, common creatures might find these challenges too much to bear.
