Re: SCBC Soutpansberg Highlights 2016

Thanks for looking. The habitats were varied. Currently we try and limit our sampling to anything on Soutpansberg geology. So these finds are from very diverse habitats: afromontane forest, grassland, bushveld, lowveld, kalahari sands, woodland (various types including mopane and iron wood) and even...

Pseudolychas ochraceus is the correct species. Plain Pygmy Thick Tail.

SCBC Soutpansberg Highlights 2016

Hello everyone. Another busy and exciting year at the SCBC in the Soutpansberg working on our reptile and scorpion assemblages.

Re: Identifying scorpion

Very common in and around Johannesburg even in highly urbanised areas. Some populations exhibit parthenogenesis. Common name plain pygmy thick-tail.

Uroplectes triangulifer (uroplectes in general) are far more colourful.

The scorp wont hurt the cat.

Re: Northern Cape January 2016 Creature Feature (many pictur

Thanks Allen. I see what you mean now, that is quite a compliment!

Chopper, the snake was very large for a cape cobra and looked blacker in real life (my equipment is very basic) , but maybe you are right.

Thanks

The Northern Cape is a beautiful place. I think we saw so much because we were lucky enough to go up during some crazy rains. One can't actually believe how the desert can flood. Fooble, I was surprised at the high Pachydactylus diversity we managed to to see. JKA the Flap-neck was just past Kuruman...

Northern Cape January 2016 Creature Feature (many pictures)

January 2016 I had the opportunity to travel to the Northern Cape for three weeks. Having never visited the area before I had no idea what to expect. I knew it was going to be arid and hot, I knew I was going to experience wide open spaces and unique biodiversity but nothing could prepare me for the...

Re: Zambia

Thanks The Trachylepis wahlbergii are very common. They are like the T striata and T punctatisima in surburbia in South Africa. But maybe more common because Zambians do not like cats. Some corrections: Common Squeaker (Arthroleptis stenodactylus) is actually A xenochirus (plain one remains Arthrole...
