Okanagan Country

Hi all, It's been a while since I've posted on here (I don't even think my last February Florida report made it up), so thought I'd better do something. Anyway, I've recently returned from a two-week Canada trip from Calgary through to Vancouver Island - generally just wildlife spotting - although I...

Re: 6 days in South Florida

Wonderful finds! I assume being in South Florida, there was never a lack of an abundance of Green Iguanas? ;) Cheers. We spotted a few I guess, but mainly whilst driving along busier highways so no decent views. In terms of abundance they were nothing compared to the anoles though. Anole after anol...

Re: 6 days in South Florida

Much appreciated with the ID! As for venomous critters - We approached one cottonmouth in ENP but it had just been hit by a car, it lowered its head for the last time just as we got to it. Definitely a bummer (and a surprise) we didn't end up with any more, it wasn't for lack of trying! However (in ...

6 days in South Florida

G'day I guess for most of you there's nothing too interesting here, but this was my first trip to the states so most of the species were lifers for me! We did snaffle a pretty odd little scarlet snake too, so maybe there's at least something for the connoisseur of odd-looking critters. I'll just do ...

Bornean spine-jawed snake (Xenophidion acanthognathus)

Hello all, Nearly five months ago we observed a strange-looking snake in Sarawak, Borneo. Only ever previously recorded once in 1987, this is the second known observation of an individual – and following the confirmation of this record in the Herpetological Review 48(1)2017, I can now share with you...
