Strawberry Poison Frog(Oophaga pumilio). These small dendrobatids(dart frogs) are a very common site in the understory of the Costa Rican rainforest. Their genus Oophaga translates to egg-eater, this is because the mother who after depositing her tadpoles in a bromeliad will nurture them by feeding them infertile eggs.

Red-webbed Treefrog(Hypsiboas rufitelus) was easily my favourite frog I found whilst in Costa Rica. These guys are absolutely stunning. Anyone want to guess why it's commonly called the Red-webbed Treefrog?

Me helping process a False Fer De Lance(Xenodon rabdocephalis) I found while doing a survey in Costa Rica. I've got tonnes of camera photos to come but I've been too busy to do any post-processing. These snakes are rear-fanged venomous and apparently a bite can cause some immense pain for a few hours but nothing too serious. 📸 #puravida #fieldherping

A big thank you to this amazing group I got to call family during my stay in Costa Rica. Memories were made, I miss each and every one of you! Same time next year? 
Tag anyone I missed in the comments!

Here's a throwback to the largest Smooth Greensnake(Opheodrys vernalis) I've ever seen. I found it with @joshua.v.feltham while doing a survey for species at risk. This was one of my favourite herping moments of 2016, we observed 4 Smooth Greens within a radius of less than 10 meters and in a matter of less than 20 minutes. A software was used to measure the length of the individual post survey. This monster was 548mm (21.6") total length and 421mm(16.6") snout to vent. These snakes hibernate communally which is why we found so many close together, we likely found their hibernaculum.

A favourite of many, the Red Eyed Treefrog (Agalychnis callidryas)
When I last saw this species in the spring of 2015 I was pretty new to photography, can't wait to get another crack at it! I leave for my next tropical adventure 2 weeks from today ❤ see you soon Costa Rica.

Eastern Hognose(Heterodon platirhinos) 
The fourth of six individuals seen on my birthday. This was by far the darkest one I've ever seen!

The 3rd from my birthday hognose blitz. Definitely the prettiest individual... and the 'mite'iest.

Eastern Massasauga(Sistrurus catenatus) 
Going out today in hopes of seeing one more of these beauties before they go under for the winter #easternmassasauga #sistruruscatenatus #rattlesnake #venomoussnake #venomous #fieldherping #herpers_digest #herpetology #herppositive #exploreON #createexplore #neverstopexploring #sharecangeo #ig_discover_wildlife #udog_animal #discoverearth
Eastern Massasauga(Sistrurus catenatus) from late August 
After 2-4 months of gestation, a gravid female Massasauga will give birth to between 5 and 20 adorable little neonates. They stay with their mother for a few days after birth, until they shed their skin, then they leave to take on the world. They will hunt for their first meal and soon after find a safe place to settle in for the winter. Here's to his/her success! #easternmassasauga #fieldherping #sistrurus #sistruruscatenatus #rattlesnake #venomous #venomousreptile #babyrattlesnake #neonate #babyanimals #everything_animals #animal_sultans #animalelite #earthpix #earthfocus #ig_discover_wildlife #exploreON #sharecangeo #discoverearth #neverstopexploring #herpers_digest #herppositive

Okay you have to admit this snake looks like it's about to tell your fortune 😂

Eastern Hognose(Heterodon platirhinos) 
This year for my birthday(Aug5) I went out with my buddies @ryanmwolfe and @kyleskritters in search of one of my favourite species. It was a crazy day and in a matter of a few hours we found 6! Now that's one hell of a birthday present if you ask me. This first one was spotted by Kyle about 5 minutes into the search. #easternhognose #heterodonplatirhinos #fieldherping #herpers_digest #herppositive #herpetology #herpsdaily #createexplore #discoverearth #exklusive_shot #exploreON #ontarionature #discoverON #discoverearth #wildlife_perfection #wildernessculture #animal_sultans #animalelite #ig_discover_wildlife #reptilesofinstagram #snakesofinstagram #serpentes

Florida Cooter(Psuedemys floridana) 
It's nice to see more and more people helping turtles cross the road. They all need our help, some more than others. It is so sad to see animals that have survived multiple mass extinctions face extiction themselves thanks to humans. The lady driving this camper pulled over and thanked me for helping this girl cross which was a nice change of pace since I usually just get odd and rude looks for helping wildlife. Be a part of the solution, help them out when it's safe to do so #wildliferescue

Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake(Sistrurus catenatus) 
Every time I see this species in the wild I fall in love with them even more. Hearing the buzz of their tail just warms my soul. Isn't it amazing how something that could cause one person nightmares could be another's fondest dream? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Black Kingsnake(Lampropeltis getula nigra) from southern Illinois. 
#Lampropeltis (Kingsnakes)is easily one of  my favourite genus of snake in North America.
