"Our coast, our mission" found a blue tongued lizard while cleaning up a dumped bean bag. The lizard was quite distressed with a mouth and throat full of beans. They rushed him to the Southcoast Animal Hospital and are happy to share that he has since been released back to his home.
Stumpy tail Shingle Back lizard. Just coming out of hibernation. I have a number of local residents at home. Each year when they poke their head out after their big sleep after their winter hibernation I feed them some chicken to get them on their way for the season. I certainly am extremely privileged to live in this beautiful country right in the heart of the Australian Bush. #tidycanberragardens#lizard#reptiles#australia#canberra
"Eastern diamondback rattlesnake swimming through shallow water in the Everglades a few years ago. All snakes can swim, albeit some better than others. Diamondbacks are known for being very good swimmers that colonize barrier islands miles offshore" 🐍
Redid azmodaus' enclosure! He wasnt getting much use out of his old cork logs so I incorporated them into his new cave inspired hideout! This cave thing also has his water bowl hidden with them, so he can stay in the comfort of his hide and still drink water. His new cave hide is also against the glass so I am able to see him at my desk! On the left of the enclosure he also has a new bridge thing using a small piece of round cork. Under the bridge is a wet valley. Hope you like it!
We have just left the lush rainforests of Ranomafana. Here we found several of our main reptile and amphibian target species for our Madagascar trip. But one species I especially wanted to see. We found not one, but four of them!
They are fairly small and well camouflaged animals that never bat an eye.... For some this photo will be a dead giveaway, for others a cryptic picture without meaning. On our return home I will sift through all the RAW's and post the animal in all its glory.
In total this trip has brought us 50 species of reptiles and amphibians, 9 lemur species and definitely some fair amount of birds, insects and plants so far, within 8 days only!
