On Saturday my dad @jthazpainter and I completed a long time goal of hiking the Grand Canyon Rim to rim to rim. That is from the south kiabab to the north rim and back up the bright angel in one day. All and all it was around 45 miles and took us a lot longer than we had hoped at 23 hours and 17 minutes. It was absolutely amazing though and was a fantastic time!
1st: view of route from N to S rim.
2nd: S kiabab trail head 11:30pm
3rd: Phantom ranch at 2:22pm
4th: Top of North rim 9:30ish.
5th: Lying down at North rim
6th: Back to Phantom 3:30pm
7th: Starting to hike back up.
8th: Stats from S rim to N rim.
9th: These words seem to fit.
10th: "Holy crap I hiked that... twice!!?"
.
Next goal will be to do it in 16 hours :)

I caught this picture of some defensive posturing from the Taipan on the left. Despite being the most venomous land snake in the world they are actually a pretty mild mannered and calm snake to work with. This is only the second time I have seen one of ours get defensive and I'm not too sure what it was exactly that set him on edge today.

This Sri Lankan Palm viper showing off his beautiful head pattern. Sri Lankan Palm Vipers have a primarily heamotoxic bite capable of causing severe swelling and necrosis at the bite site however their venom is not generally considered to be lethal.

My girlfriend @beautywondersby_dee has been burning sage lately and every time she does like clock work Cleo comes out of her hide  to investigate. I'm not sure if that means she likes it or if it means she is possessed by a demon 🤔
...eirher way it's pretty cool.

I am so excited to start working with these amazing snakes PHS picked up at the Sacramento Reptile Show. This is one of two elephant trunk snakes. They are a fully aquatic species from Malaysia. .

This cobra might be one of the only snakes that looks cooler when he is in shed then when he is out of shed. Had a great first day at the Tucson reptile expo today. .

This is one of the Gila monsters I am lucky enough to work with on behalf of the Phoenix Herpetological Society. While they are venomous their venom is non-lethal but that does not mean it is a good idea to touch them. Gila monsters have a venom designed to cause excruciating pain and they are a heavily protected species.

I had such an amazing weekend at the #sacreptileshow. There is nothing I love more than seeing the perspective of someone who may otherwise be afraid of reptiles change from having a close encounter with one.  This is Baby an American aligator who is loved and cared for by the Phoenix Herpetological Society. She has been an education animal her whole life and has helped show thousands of kids and adults how sweet and gentle reptiles can be.  This is how educating the next generation of reptile lovers and conservationists begins.

I feel so privelaged to be a part of  taking care of these animals and to be a part of teaching people how wonderful reptiles are.

Definitely not my best 
Picture but I was so stoked to see this guy a few weeks ago. I have lived in Arizona my whole life and this was my first time seeing a gila monster in the wild. He was moving pretty quickly across the road which is why it's on the blurry side.

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!

These signs can be found at rest stops all over Arizona and I cringe every time I see one. Rattlesnakes, scorpions and spiders are not poisonous, they are venomous. The difference is poison must be consumed to cause harm and venom must be injected to cause harm. Assuming you had no open cuts in your mouth it would technically be completely safe to drink venom!

I came across this big guy on a walk last night... why wouldn't I have my snake hook lol.
 If you hear a rattlesnake and don't know wear it is coming from the best thing you can do is take one step back and then try to locate it. That one step back will get you out of the strike range of any snake in AZ and will give you the space to safely see where it is coming from. 
Then the best thing you can do once you see it  is  to leave it alone. 
Happy hiking!

This is Biloba the green iguana. Biloba has debilitating metabolic bone disease so I will be taking care of him for awhile. The poor guy is pretty much immobile. The bone disease is too far gone to completely cure but I'm going to try my best to at least get him on his feet again! .

Because I did not have a phone to post at the time here are a handful of pictures from my trip to Rodeo NM for the Biology of Snakes Conference a few weeks ago. I learned so much and had a really great time with @sam_kerwin99 !

Finally finished making a proper rack for my geckos and  rearranging all my reptiles. All but one of my reptiles is in this picture! .

Finally have a new phone after my last one failed the falling off the roof of a moving car test. Good to be back on instagram.

I don't care if I'm only going 50 MPH when the whole car rattles like a space ship breaking up on re-entry I feel like I am going 95. .

Did a full cleaning and tank makeover for this Taylor's Cantil (Agkistrodon taylori) today. These Pitvipers are native to Mexico and use the end of their specialy colored tail to lure in its prey.

Hiked black mountain for the first time in a few months tonight. Unfortunately all I came across were a few tiny lizards too fast to catch. 
Hopefully there will be more herps next time!

Cleo decided to go for a little stroll last night. I don't realize how big she has gotten until I see pictures like this. Three years ago she was shipped to me by the serpentarium in a tiny deli cup that she's would easily crush now!

Crested geckos have to be one of the most amazing commonly available pet geckos. Their inquisitive nature and wild personalities make them tons of fun and even cooler is the fact the they were thought to be extinct until 1994 when they were rediscovered.

A female Morlets crocodile guarding her nest. This species only reaches lengths of about  6-8ft but they are still strong enough to take down large cattle sized prey!

I removed these shed fangs from a large Western Diamond Back's feces today. When vipers strike their prey the force of the strike is eventually enough to dislodge their fangs making room for new and often larger fangs to grow in.  Great find on @sam_kerwin99 's part for noticing the fangs!
