Herping Hong Kong 2018

Post by Hongkongsnakeid » October 15th, 2018, 7:21 pm

We started http://www.HongKongSnakeID.com in the late spring/early summer this year. Having the pictures and information up on a website that was getting a lot more interest than we expected was a real motivator to get out herping as often as possible so we could get more photos, video and first hand information on the many endemic species here as possible. As of this post those efforts have resulted in us finding hundreds of snakes and as much as 28 different species just this season. I'm going to share some of our favorite photos from this year over the course of several posts and look forward to comments, questions and feedback!
