All is great, Jerry. :thumb: :thumb:
Thanks for that one.


That last "Sinonatrix" (percarinata?) really reminds us here across the pond of how similar they look to some North American Nerodia!



And, of course, the Hong Kong Newt (Paramesotriton hongkongensis) is really Godzilla! :lol: ;)

Thanks Jerry, I always enjoy your stuff! Other than tree vipers, pythons, monitors, and cobras - the herpetofauna is pretty ecologically similar to the SE USA. Ha ha ha, but really. Water snakes, tree frogs, rat snakes, skinks, newts etc...similar, but still exciting and different.

cheers

Yeah. And Laurasia! Ha ha.

Hey Jerry, do you know - where do the tree vipers brumate in Taiwan? In cliff cracks, hollow trees, stump holes?

cheers
