Ecuador Trip

Post by JW35 » June 6th, 2018, 10:19 am

Hello everyone, This is officially my first post on the forum. Im 20 years old and have been herping for about 4-5 years now. Im from central Pennsylvania and am quite quiet in the herp community having a very small fan base on my instagram. The reason I am posting is because I recently took a 3 week long trip to Ecuador to go herping and birding. Among my travels, I came across quite a few species that I wasn't able to identify. I was hoping somebody could help identifying some of the species I have found. Pictures are listed below, there was 5 frog species and 2 snake species. Any help would be greatly appreciated. All herp species were found near the Tena (border of Amazon) Eastern area of Ecuador

Frog Number One :

(This snake was most likely some sort of water snake judging by it's bands and we did find it in a nearby pond, however our tour guide said that it was a venomous species, but I don't think it is. I kept my distance just to be safe)

Welcome to FHF, JW! I can't seem to open any of the attachments you posted and I think you would get a better response by adding the photos directly to the post yourself. If you can do that, I think you might get some of the herps identified. Good luck!

Hi Paul thank you for replying, I was unaware that the files were unable to be opened. However, I did try to attach the files directly, but it kept telling me I could only attach a file "2MB" and most of my pictures are over 2MB. I wasn't sure how to go around that

Unfortunately, I'm not the right person to ask how to attach images (I myself have not posted any of my images since I've never been able to figure that out). But don't despair, I'm sure that someone will help you out and you'll be posting like a pro in no time. Hang in there!
