Red-eyed Woodlizard (Enyalioides oshaughnessyi) a large-bodied arboreal lizard that often hangs out on thin to medium sized vertical trees or branches, moving to the backside of the branch to remain hidden from potential predators. This species is found on the Western slopes of the Andes. A rare lizard believed to remain in less than 10 localities, It’s range is very small and is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN red list. #savethechoco with @muchobirdnerd @intothemojave @_matthugh #wildtropics

I was watching the amazing IG stories made by @georgelonsdale on snake biology and it reminded me about my favorite species of viper, the bornean keeled pit viper. This was a truly stunning female seen in Danum Valley in Borneo. You can clearly see the keeled scales here! ⠀
⠀
As with other pit vipers, this is a venomous snake, with heat-sensing pits on the sides of the head. She barely moved over a few nights and gave me ample opportunities to photograph her during my field biology teaching downtime.⠀

Oophaga sylvatica

A recent biological survey of Jocotoco's Rio Canandé Reserve has unveiled many new species of reptiles and amphibians never before documented on the reserve. These new findings make the reserve “the most herpetologically diverse area in the world outside of the Amazon" says @rainforesttrust who supported the expeditions. It is also another example of why we must work to protect what is left. Great work by Fundacion Jocotoco, Tropical Herping, and Rainforest Trust. 
Please check out www.savethechoco.com to learn more on what we are doing to protect the Rio Canandé region.

This incredible bird is a shoebill stork! Usually found in marshlands, swamps and wetlands, the shoebill is a very solitary species and they only come together to mate.

One of the top moments in the Sri Lanka photo safari is definitely the encounter of a Rose-ringed Parakeet nest, one of the most photogenic birds from this island and their endemic nature and culture. I was really surprised of the birdlife with more than 450 resident species and the variety of situations to get some shots. Last 2 spots for this lifetime experience!

Rain Dance - A fawn breasted brilliant almost seems to enjoy the rain in its cloud forest habitat.  It's good that it's not bothered because it rains a lot at this high elevation tropical forest in the Andes where this hummingbird makes it's home.  This species is found along the length of the Andes from Colombia to Bolivia. .

Happy World Frog Day! Untold numbers of frogs still await discovery among the poorly explored moss forests of Borneo's mountaintops. Near the summit of Gunung Murud (the highest mountain in Sarawak), an undescribed species of tiny bush frog (Philautus sp.) perches inside the pitcher of Nepenthes hurrelliana, a carnivorous plant. Although many frogs utilize the fluid-filled pitchers of various Nepenthes for either shelter or breeding, the details of this behavior remain poorly studied. @chienleephotography
