30k! Just wanted to give a shout out to all of my followers. It’s incredibly encouraging to see just how many people are interested in reptiles and amphibians. They usually get a pretty bad reputation but it seems like this is slowly changing. 
This is a green tree python (Morelia viridis) that I found up in Iron Range, Australia. This is, in my opinion, one of Australia’s most beautiful snakes.

Hoy se celebra el #WorldAnimalDay . Todos los animales merecen admiración. Tengan plumas, escamas, pieles ligosas... no solo los peluditos.

Today we celebrate #WorldAnimalDay. All animals deserve admiration. Wether they have feathers, scales, slimy skin... not just the fluffy ones.

Esta semana ha sido una locura y aún no acaba todavía falta el taller de Conservación y Fotografía @choneteherping que inicia mañana.
Ya estamos listos para disfrutar una vez más de la naturaleza.
Aquí les dejo algunas fotos que hice mientras terminaba de afinar detalles.

Nagini

Una bejuquilla me observa mientras quieta descansa sobre una rama, justo después de hacer esta foto noté como una terciopelo pequeña se deslizaba entre mis botas y se escurría hacia la vegetación.
Estaba tan emocionado de ver la bejuquilla que nunca la noté... #choneteherping

Meet Australia's newest lizard, the Silver-eyed velvet gecko (Odeura argentea), described today in Zootaxa by Conrad Hoskin, myself and Eric Vanderduys. The species lives in the sandstone escarpments of inland north Queensland, Australia.

Western tarsiers, aka the most badass primate in the world. The earliest fossil of a tarsier was found dating back 55 million years ago. The last remaining tarsiers are found in the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. They are the only fully carnivorous primates in the world. ⠀

A double-eyed fig parrot waiting in its hollow for its parents to bring back more food. The double-eyed fig parrot is Australia's smallest parrot. As the name suggests it feeds on figs but also eat berries, seeds and grubs. Unlike most other parrots who nest in existing tree hollows,  the fig parrots excavate their nests in rotten branches of trees.

A throwback to my favorite picture of a wild clouded leopard. A very short sighting, but enough time to get an amazing look and some pictures that I am STOKED about. Taken at Danum Valley Field Centre. ⠀

The Gift: A Giant Forest Ant (Camponotus gigas) receives a droplet of sweet honeydew from the abdomen of a juvenile leaf-footed bug (Notobitus sp.). The bugs, which obtain more sugar than they need from the plant juices they feed on, are fiercely guarded by the ants in return. Mutually beneficial trophobiotic relationships such as this are very advantageous in the competitive ecosystem of the rainforest. @chienleephotography

Yellow-blotched Palm Pit Viper (Bothriechis aurifer) from the cloud forest of Guatemala. I spotted just the tail of this snake a ways off the trail. I thought it was just a bit of vine, but decided to walk out and check anyway. Seth was close by and when he saw me walk off into the jungle he said “do you see something?” Once I got close enough to verify, I yelled out “aurifer” I was stoked. Just a few minutes later and close by Seth yelled out as he found another one. It was a great night. With @intothemojave @andresnovales_wildlife

Currently in the field assisting with the filming of a wildlife documentary for Mexican TV. Any guesses on what we're after?
