This big Ethiopean Cobra never fails to put on a good display when I walk by her enclosure!

Fury things are cool too. This kinkajou is named sage and she might be the sweetest thing ever!

Don't blink or you will miss it! He liked his clean cage so much he decided to spit at it I guess.

This Siamese croc is absolutely huge and can come flying out of the water with a single whip of his paddle like tail to surprise an unsuspecting prey animal.

Caught these dwarf crocs cuddling the other day. I love how cute they look when they open their mouth to thermoregulate. It just looks like a big old smile!

This big American croc doesn’t get the idea that her pond is the heated part of her enclosure. Luckily she is usually happy to get in without too much trouble!

Yes, there is glass between the kids and the cobra! One of the coolest parts of my job is getting to help teach kids about these awesome reptiles during snake day camp at the Phoenix Herpetological Society. This Ethiopean Cobra is definitely in my top 5 favorite species to work with!

Rhino rat snakes are from China and Vietnam and turn this awesome green color in adult hood to better blend in with the forest tree tops. Currently the exact purpose of the horn that gives the rhino rat snake it's name is unknown. Any hypotheses?

I love central American rattlesnakes. Their patterns and high keeled scales are just awesome! Crotalus culminatus.

This retic is not usually a friendly snake but I got a rare glimpse at his gentler side yesterday after helping him with some stuck 
shed on his neck. Thanks to @lalalivyyy for catching this shot!

He was so nicley I had to snap a picture of this big guy before pushing him in his pond.  The pond is the only part of his enclosure we can keep warm so we check them twice a night to make sure they are staying in their ponds and staying warm.

One of the last sulcatas to go in for the night. Sulcata burrows  can be over 10 feet long and serve to protect them from the heat during the summer and the cold during the winter.

This is a baby western diamondback on the day it was born. Rattlesnakes give live birth to fully functioning offspring and can have as many as 30 babies at one time!

This big reticulated python is absolutely awe inspiring. I can't even imagine what it would be like to come across one in the wild.

Gopher snakes' primary defense mechanism is being a rattlesnake mimic. They have a pattern and coloration that is very similar to that of  the western diamondback. To make the con even more effective, when threatened, gopher snakes will rattle their tail despite having no rattle and stretch their jaw to give their head the triangular shaped viper look that rattlesnakes and most other Vipers possess.

Can't take credit for the shot but the hand and the snake look familiar... I was asked to handle a rattlesnake for a news story on a new rattlesnake shot that is used like an epipen to buy rattlesnake bite victims more time to get to the hospital. Hopefully I never need it!

I caught this shot of an elephant trunk snake coming up for air. Elephant trunk snakes, Acrochordus javanicus, are also kown as file snakes due to the file like appearance of their scales. Because they live entirely aquatic lives they have lost the ventral scales that most snakes use for motion in favor of pointed file like scales that help them hold onto and constrict fish.

Tag Someone when you find the stick bug!
These insects are such masters of camouflage that their color and pattern perfectly match the color of Arizona's iron wood trees.

I think black mambas are officially my favorite species to work with. This beauty is probably about 10-11 feet and is watching every move you make when you are in the room with her. Their intelligence is outstanding!

My girlfriend @beautywondersby_dee and I had a picnic by this pond yesterday to mark our 5 year anniversary and saw tons of these cool bullfrogs! Unfortunately they are an invasive species in Arizona and are a major threat to some of our native herps like leopard frogs and garter snakes.

I caught a picture of this guy finishing off the last of his shed. Most leopard geckos will entirely eat their shed skin to recoup lost nutrients and to help  leave no trace of where they have been.

Kevin Harkin and Tom  of @kampkenan were on site at the Phoenix Herpetological Society today filming for an upcoming episode of Kamp Kenan and if meeting them wasn't cool enough I got to be part of the episode talking about some of my favorite reptiles! I am so stoked to see how it turns out! .
If you aren't already subscribed to their youtube channel you should be. It is a great source of awesome reptile information with none of the overblown hype you see on so many other animal shows.

This beauty was sleeping with his  hood up yesterday. I am not sure why he would do this but I appreciated the chance to get a picture of his spectacles.  I remember watching Ricky Ticky Tavi as a kid where they make the Indian cobra look absolutely menacing and I think the reality is it is probably one of the most gentle and easy to maneuver  cobras I have the privelage of working with. Besides just look at that cute little face!

These legless lizards got me wondering if there are any know species of legged snake. Turns out there are no living specimens  of legged snake but there is at least one great fossil of what is believed to be a very early snake that had not yet completely lost its limbs. In this fossil a long snake like body can be seen with four distinct limbs giving the fossil it's name Tetrapodophis which literally translates to four legs. It is not known for sure if this fossil was truly a legged snake or just another species of legless lizard but some traits like it's relatively short tail point towards it being a snake!

This was one of the coolest releases I have ever done! I released this western diamondback above what looked like a pack rat nest in hopes of giving him a good start and it looks like he might have found food a lot quicker than I thought he would.

I got this cool little desert rose plant (Adenium obesum) for @beautywondersby_dee  at the Tucson reptile expo a few weeks ago. They look absolutely awesome once they mature and flower. Let's see if I can keep it alive. Fingers crossed! Lol

The only problem with glue traps is that they sometimes catch unintended victims. I recommend not using them at all but if you must use them you ought to check them regularly to make sure you don't find an accidental catch too late. The Phoenix Herpetological Society gets regular calls about everything from snakes to Gila monsters getting stuck on glue traps. That is how my girlfriend @beautywondersby_dee
And I came across this little guy today.

This beautiful Fea's viper is believed to be the most primitive species of viper alive today. You can see in this picture how it lacks the typical viper shaped head and has a very elapid  like scaleation over its entire body.

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 got lucky and caught a picture of Elvis with his tongue out this week. He is easily one of my favorite snakes to work with.

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. .
