One of the coolest lizards around! A Draco volans from Bali a couple of years ago. Their 'wings' are actually an extension of their rib cage that they use to glide through the canopy.

Had fun cruising and shining last night with @rhettstanberry and Taylor. Even though it got cold pretty quick we still managed a good variety; 5 Fl water snakes, 3 yellow rats, 3 red rats, 3 black swamps, 1 ribbon, 1 ringneck, and 1 rough green.

I thought nobody goes full snek, but apparently I was wrong. I met up with a friend in Conroe, TX (near Houston) named Chip, he's the one with the glove. I was able to hold a bigger diamondback watersnake (harmless) without getting bitten, I just stay relaxed and hold them about halfway down the body. I didn't find a lot of what I wanted to find, but I can't complain for February, I also added a new species to my list of herps I've found, the eastern newt. We found the following during a 3 hour hike:
7 western ribbonsnakes
7 eastern copperheads
At least 6 rough earthsnakes
Approx 5 small-mouthed salamanders
Same number of eastern newts
Eastern narrowmouth toad

Very large Gaboon Viper, Bitis gabonica, that I trained with at @swfloridavenomfarm! These snakes have the largest fangs and one of the fastest strikes, however they have a very mild disposition! Awesome snakes!

Parque Seminario, otherwise known as Parque de Las Iguanas. This park is known for the dozens of iguanas living here, and even features a pond full of turtles! Found this guy sunbaking on top of a tree 😊 #southamericatrip2017 #guayaquil #ecuador #parquedelasiguanas #abroad #iguana #reptiles #nature #herpetology #ancientreptiles #fuckyeah

#taiwan was surprisingly #beautiful ! From deep #blue rivers that snaked along the #mountains to its beautiful #lush #green #forests! Really looking forward to heading back one day !

The mildly venomous, rear-fanged Brown Tree Snake (Boiga irregularis) can be found in a range of contrasting colours, but this little guy from North Queensland would have to be my favourite from the many I've seen.

Blunt-headed Treesnakes (Imantodes cenchoa) are nocturnal tree-dwellers that twine their way through the branches in search of frog and lizard prey. They prefer forested lowlands and premontane slopes, yet this common species is also found in coffee fincas and fruit orchards. They range from southern Tamaulipas and Oaxaca, Mexico south to central Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay, and northeastern Argentina.
