Re: Ecuador Herping Suggestions

I can highly recommend Canande lodge in the Choco. I’ve just returned from a trip with the Tropcial Herping guys and we had a very cool trip. I’ve made a series of videos about the trip that can be seen here if you’d like to get an idea of what we found https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFD90ExUqLyoZ...

Re: MORE Sumatra Herp IDs

No prob frogshot, I was able to identify them, because first, I'm very much interested in geckos, and also the sizes and distribution. There actually arent too many known species of Cyrtodactylus from Sumatra. Quadrivirgatus is in the pet trade, so they were fairly easy to ID, I've seen a few marmor...

Re: Non-Iquitos Peruvian Herping?

It all depends on what you're wanting to find. Most of the impressive snakes are in the Northeast, but the coastal desert regions of Peru support a large number of very interesting lizards and geckos as well as a few snakes. A few hot spots would be Balsas in central Peru, Paracas on the southwest c...

Re: Southern Africa....Revisited, and new photos

Thanks for your interest! Besides a few species that are only known from type specimens, Lamprophis fiskii is one of, if not THE rarest snake in southern Africa.

The gecko is a Dixonius siamensis. The Genus was at one time Phyllodactylus but has since been split. Great post, and nice finds!
