Unfortunately, Australia has been inundated with the invasive Cane Toad. While there in July, I saw more of these than snakes and lizards by far (granted, it was winter there). First one pictured was very mustard-colored, while the second photo is of a group flipped under a cinder block. These toads are severely damaging some native populations of herpetofauna.

Dog-toothed Cat Snake (Boiga cynodon). Has enlarged front teeth on the top and bottom jaw to aid in the breaking of egg shells. Its main diet consists of birds and their eggs although it will take anything that fits in its mouth. They can reach a decent length of over 2m and was probably the most placid species I encountered during my visit to Bali, didn't get struck at once. But then again when you look at its face, how could something that cute wanna bite you anyway. Very different temperament to the boigas in Australia! #dogtoothedcatsnake #boigacynodon #reptilesofinstagram #snakesofinstagram #venomous #wild #wildlife #wildlife_vision #wildlife_seekers #wildlifephotography #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #nature #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturelovers #nature_addict #herp #herps #herping #picoftheday #photooftheday #herpetofauna #bali #exploreindonesia #balireptilerescue #canon #700d #macro #60mm @natgeowild @natgeoyourshot @natgeo @canoncollectiveofficial @canonaustralia

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?

As far as pythons go - chondros are relatively small in size, in saying that they are nothing short of amazing!
Nocturnal, they rest on a chosen perch high up which they descend as nightfall approaches. Being an ambush predator, they position themselves to hang from low laying branches with their head a few centimetres from the ground and their neck in the typical "S" position waiting for unsuspecting prey to pass.
In the above photo you can see the presence of heat sensitive labial pits which is a characteristic of many Boids. These are used for accurately detecting minute changes in temperature which help them locate warm-blooded prey during the night.

This is probably the cutest frog I've ever seen. I think the species is Boana crepitans, the Emerald-eyed tree frog (anyone here can confirm?). It is native to Trinidad and usually found at the southern foothills of the mountainous area in the north of the island, where we were resting for a few days after a month of #fieldwork in June-July 2013.

Their hands are so cool! With almost no webbing between the first two fingers, they look a bit like E.T.
And they have an amazing ability to change colour: This one was brown before getting scared of my headtorch!

But I'm sure we agree: Those eyes are their most incredible trait. Pure awesomeness! They probably obtain the pigments from eating jungle fairies and stardust. . . . . .

Back to the amazon rainforest with "Rhinella margaritifera". Some individuals have a pronounced vertebral stripe, which further breaks up the animal's outline, making it even harder to recognize when not moving. This is a pretty large adult.

Crawling in the dark is not a common activity of this indonesian false bloodsucker (Pseudocalotes tympanistriga). This day-walker lizard often sleeps on the very end of leaves or twigs, so it can rapidly escapes, jumps to the bushes below when the predators approach from the main tree branch.

Puede parecer una pequeña piedra (☄), un fruto seco de alguna planta (🌰) o un trozo de tronco...y no es para menos, con 1 cm de tamaño (😕)
.
.
Aunque su pupila anaranjada (◽), característica de esta especie, ya nos deja ver qué se trata de un juvenil (👶) de Sapo común (Bufo spinosus), aunque de común, cada vez tiene menos. Es el anuro (🐸) de mayor tamaño y peso de la Península Ibérica, superando algunas hembras los 17-18 cm de longitud (😱). Y es un endemismo ibérico, norteafricano y sur de Francia (🗼)
.
.
📣NO ESCUPE 📣. Ese viejo mito de que los sapos escupen es totalmente falso. La toxicidad la producen unas glándulas situadas en la parte anterior de los ojos (👀), llamada Glándula Parótida, y producen un líquido (💧) tóxico e irritante. Les sirve como mecanismo de defensa (💂) frente a sus depredadores, y para nosotros puede llegar a producir irritación en nuestras mucosas nasales, lacrimales, tubo digestivo... Así que como consejo, no coger (🚫) a este animalito, incluso aunque no presentara ninguno de estos sistemas de defensa.

Centralian Blue-tongue (Tiliqua multifasciata)

A fairly common species on a recent trip to central Australia. Never saw a single one during the day, all crossing the road at night. They are surprisingly fast for such a stumpy little lizard!!!

heeee acaranya udahan terimakasih @haegel_alif08 @aldiodwiputra @ahmadnabilff & @richard_ardiwibawa .... Alhamdulillah seru juga sih ketemu temen alumni ekw IPB @anisaprdpt #ekwipb @ciliwungrc #herpetologists #herpetofauna #biologist

Axolote (Ambystoma mexicanum) É uma salamandra extremamente rara e endêmica do México, esta criticamente ameaçada de extinção, existindo poucos indivíduos na natureza. Possui uma incrível habilidade de cura e regeneração, podendo recuperar membros inteiros, inclusive parte do sistema nervoso.Por isso são muito estudadas por pesquisadores.

Gastrophrynoides borneensis (Boulenger, 1897) is very hard to find with only few records in Sarawak. Up to now we dont know much about this frogs, because of his hidden life in the leaf litter - G. borneensis is monophyletic with. G. immaculatus and together formed a clade with an asterophryine species Oreophryne monticola. #frog #froglover #herpetology #herpetofauna #herpetologia #herpetologist #nature #jungle #rainforest #wildlife #rareanimals #naturephotography #naturelovers #naturelover #naturewalk #borneo #sarawak #asia #malaysia #naturelove #animal #animals #gastrophrynoides #biology #biologie #zoology #biologistshavemorefun #microhylidae

Christmas snake? Isn’t the colour like Chrismas colour.?... the actual name is Paradise tree snake or Paradise Flying snale (Cotigao WLS, Goa, Aug 2016). They can glide from one tree to another, can cover a horizontal distance of about 100 meters. #snakes #westernghatwildlifebytamal #westernghats #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #instasnakes #herpetology #herpetofauna #snakesbyme

Wolf Snake (Lycodon capucinus). Named after their large front teeth that resemble canines but are not actually used for venom delivery. They have true fangs at the back of their mouth like most colubrids and their venom is very mild to humans. For a snake that lives mainly underground and just above it their diet is quite peculiar consisting mainly of geckos which is why they are encountered next to human dwellings. #wolfsnake #lycodoncapucinus #reptilesofinstagram #snakesofinstagram #venomous #wild #wildlife #wildlife_vision #wildlife_seekers #wildlifephotography #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #nature #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturelovers #nature_addict #herp #herps #herping #picoftheday #photooftheday #herpetofauna #bali #exploreindonesia #balireptilerescue #canon #700d #macro #60mm @natgeowild @natgeoyourshot @natgeo @canoncollectiveofficial @canonaustralia

Armed with a research permit, our wildlife crew is using a camera trap to study herpetofauna (reptiles and amphibians) at Tonto National Monument. When studying larger animals, the camera can be attached to a wooden stake or a tree. But herpetofauna are too small to be detected that way. Instead, these cameras are pointed at the ground. Cameras are attached to each of three pvc pipe frames, then the frames are connected by a thin metal wall, 1.5 feet high. An opening is left in the middle of the wall. When they encounter the barrier, small critters run alongside it until they find an opening--where a camera is waiting to snap a photo. Studying herpetofauna with camera traps offers a non-invasive alternative to more traditional capture techniques. These studies help us know which species are in the area and provides a glimpse into their seasonal activity. Birds and mammals have also been caught on the cameras.

Gotta love this Waxy Monkey Tree Frog! Its wide mouth and intense eyes just really get to you. It may seem larger than it is, it's not bigger than a child's fist! :)

Día internacional de los Voluntarios.
El Grupo para el conocimiento y protección de Anfibios y Reptiles Yuumil Kaan está conformado por personas apasionadas que buscan contribuir a la conservación de la #Herpetofauna Yucateca.
Conformado no solo por biólogos, si no por diseñadores, comunicólogos, bachilleres... han participado antropólogos, veterinarios, médicos, y numerosos ciudadanos que contribuyen día a día con nosotros... somo no solo interdisciplinarios, si no transdisciplinarios.
En esta ocasión les compartimos una fotografía de una parte del equipo de Yuumi Kaan, durante el Primer congreso con-ciencia por la conservación ambiental de niños y jóvenes indígenas, en Felipe Carillo Puerto, Quintana Roo. En mayo del 2017.
Gracias a TODOS nuestros voluntarios, y a quienes han colaborado con el proyecto.
El 17 de diciembre de 1985, la Asamblea General invitó a lo gobiernos a celebrar todos los años, el 5 de diciembre, el Día Internacional de los Voluntarios.

Malayan Krait (Bungarus candidus). This was a lucky find after a long night of only finding bronzebacks. Not only was it a lucky find but also lucky for the person in front of me who almost stepped on it because she was looking in the trees. After I yelled snake she moved her foot and just missed the tip of its tail, this is not a snake you want to get bitten by even though it is very shy and disinclined to bite much like it's cousin the Banded Sea Krait. While I attempted to take pictures it continued to hide its face which made for a very tricky photo shoot with this being the best shot I could muster before letting it continue on its way. #malayankrait #bungaruscandidus #reptilesofinstagram #snakesofinstagram #venomous #wild #wildlife #wildlife_vision #wildlife_seekers #wildlifephotography #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #nature #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturelovers #nature_addict #herp #herps #herping #picoftheday #photooftheday #herpetofauna #bali #exploreindonesia #balireptilerescue #canon #700d #macro #60mm @natgeowild @natgeoyourshot @natgeo @canoncollectiveofficial @canonaustralia
