Hi All! I hope no one minds that I'm creating a new post for updates to make it easier to follow and for me to keep everyone in the loop.

We now have 23 contributors and counting. We still have some major spaces that need filling, so please pass information about this project around to good field-herping photographers you may know. The major spaces we need photos for are the following regions: Oceania (Australia, NZ, etc.), the Seas (underwater sea snakes and turtle shots mainly), Africa, the Arctic region, and Asia, so spread the word!!

I have to admit I didn't notice your earlier request for photos (and there are plenty of folks here that have taken as good or better versions of my pictures of domestic herps, anyway). That said I see you're looking for Australian herp photos, and I have a few of those sitting around on my web site you're welcome to use if you like:

My first trip to Australia in 2007 was mostly about birding, but I did snap a few random lizards:

Goanna, Cape Tribulation, QLD: http://www.pbase.com/fvachss/image/84483346

Gould's Goanna, Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef: http://www.pbase.com/fvachss/image/84483457

Small Lizard (need ID), Exmouth, WA: http://www.pbase.com/fvachss/image/87960973

Freshwater Crocodile, Ord River (near Kununurra, WA): http://www.pbase.com/fvachss/image/85685696

and then on a second trip to West Australia in 2010, spent a bit more time on herps - seen in this folder:


In order, the first four shots are of Perentie - a large monitor Lizard (the first three are of the same individual from Exmouth, WA while the last is from the bush in the area of Nanutarra, WA). The unidentified chameleon-like lizard creature is also from Exmouth, while the next three shots of Freshwater Crocs are from Winjana Gorge in the Kimberley region of northern WA. The final three shots are from East Wallabi Island off of Geraldton in central WA - the first and third of a Dwarf Bearded Dragon endemic to the island and the second an unidentified skink.
