Re: HERPING SIBERIA! Lots Of Photos, One Snake

Awesome! Can't say I've ever seen a Siberian herping post before. Any more pics of the snake? FH Thanks for reading! Here are two more pictures of the pitviper. Actually, I've seen two specimens of this snake, but only one gave me a chance to take a photo of it. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4346/...

When Dreams Come True! Karelia, Russia

Hi everyone! It's me again, and I had recently went back to Moscow from Karelia, where I found a species of herp, which was new for me. I was walking along a forest road and stopped near a small swamp to photograph some frogs (Rana temporaria) mating. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7020/26818674885_...

Re: Almost every herp species of Karelia + extremely rare fi

Interesting stuff. That black lizard is really beautiful. You may not have that many species in Karelia but considering it is as far north as central Alaska here in North America it is amazing you have the number of species you do! How long is the herping season up there? Thank for replies everybod...
