Honey had her biggest meal yet tonight, a 4.5 lb rabbit. She ate it happily even though she ate a decent sized meal just 3 days ago!
So happy to see here making such progress!

A little Gopher snake (Pituophis catenifer) from the other night. On a side note I just got a new job and I won't be working nights anymore so the wild snake pictures may slow down. But hey I'm using my ecology degree with this new job so that's great 😁

Lawton's forest frog (1/3)
Platymantis lawtoni
"Phing... phing... phing... ... "
Only found in Romblon Pleistocene Aggregate Island Complex. 
In Sibuyan Island, Romblon, this arboreal frog can be heard from 300masl to +1500masl; abundance increases at high elevation. Peak of their calling activity is right after sunset, for about an hour.

Look at the iridescence on this Sunbeam Snake!😍🌈 They get about 3 feet on average and many imports will eat rodents.😊They are very primitive snakes found all throughout Asia! #sunbeamsnake #xenopeltis #sunbeam #iridescence #rainbow #beautifulsnake #snake #snakesofinstagram #snakes #reptile #reptilesofinstagram

We learned much while helping to host the 2017 California Tiger Salamander Conservation Science Symposium, and are looking forward to helping students get more involved in local research and conservation efforts! #Ambystomacaliforniense #ucsc #conservationbiology #herpetology

Las serpientes de cascabel pertenecen al genero Crotalus, palabra que en latín significa "castañuela" o "cascabel". A su vez pertenecen a la sub familia Crotalinae, conocidas también como "Víboras de Foseta" haciendo referencia a la foseta termoreceptroa que se encuentra entre el ojo y la fosa nasal. Esta es una característica que se puede utilizar para determinar si una serpiente es o no venenosa (a excepción de las corales)
//
Rattlesnakes belong to the genus Crotalus, a Latin word for "rattle". In turn belong to the subfamily Crotalinae, also known as "Pit Vipers" which refers to the thermorecepor holes that lies between the eye and the nostril. This is a feature that can be used to determine if a snake is poisonous or not (except for corals)

And finally, I spotted this ringneck snake (Diadophis punctatus) prowling a steep slope at a high elevation late into the night after it had cooled down a lot. I was very surprised to see it out and about, and it wasn't sluggish at all. I had to do some maneuvering and gentle head holding to get the belly shot.

Can you see them? 
These are McMahon's vipers and besides being experts at hide and  seek they also have a potentially useful compound in their venom. Eristostatin found in  the McMahon's venom binds to blood cells to stop them from clotting effectively.  The cool thing is blood cells and melanoma cells have a very similar protein on their surface which causes Eristostatin to bond to melanoma cells.  This bonding does not directly kill the melanoma but it allows the body's T-lymphocytes to recognize the melanoma as a threat allowing the body to then target and kill the cancer cells!  There is of course more research that needs to be done but it is a promising start that should remind us why all wildlife should be conserved and protected.
...plus they are just awesome!

Banded rock rattlesnake, (Crotalus lepidus klauberi). This was the second of two seen in Southern AZ a few weeks ago! Can't wait to get back down South!

This species is protected in the State of Arizona and should not be handled or disturbed without proper permits and authorization.

A really nice, clean, California Mountain Kingsnake (Lampropeltis zonata) from Northern California.  Though current taxonomy recommends that Mountain Kings in California be split into just 2 species, with no subspecies, this snake is still L. z. multifasciata to me.  I'm generally not an early adopter of taxonomic changes. It seems that, in today's age of rapidly advancing scientific techniques, if you don't like the new name of a species you've known for decades as something else, give it a couple years... it'll probably change again... sometimes even back to the old name.  But whatever you want to call this snake, she's a beaut. (Just don't call it a coral snake)⠀

The high-elevation Plethodon species we were surveying for last weekend was the red-legged salamander (Plethodon shermani). This showy  species was hybridizing with P. teyahalee here where their ranges met on the mountain. The last picture shows a hybrid of the two species that shows no red legs or white spots. Most hybrids showed traces of those traits, but a few were so nondescript, if I didn't know better, I'd have called them P. metcalfi.
