Re: Reptiles and Amphibians Selati and Karongwe Game Reserve

I have always just looked at the color Wes, no other method was used. I did not know that the color is not a reliable indicator of sex. So might be male, might be female…

Amphibian ID

Hi all I need an ID confirmation for this frog. It was found in Nelspruit in an abandoned building site. It was about 2 – 2.5cm long. I believe it may be a Natal sand frog (Tomopterna natalensis). If it is it would be the first time that I have observed this color variation in Nelspruit. Thus far al...

Re: Possible case of Mouth Rot?

Friday, for two months? You would not by any chance be going to an EcoTraining course in the Selati and Karongwe Game Reserve would you? That’s how the next two months of my life is planned.

Re: How to ID scorpions

They are a very tough field of study. There are many distinguishing features. Distribution, habitat type, pincer shape, do the pincers have teeth on the inside margin, sting shape etc. A good book that I use often is Jonathan Leeming’s book “SCORPIONS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA”. Visit his website http://ww...

Re: Leopard Tortoise Release

Yeah Mr. Venom, I reckoned you’d like some photos. I released her in the valley. Since it was pretty warm at that time I searched for a nice thicket, which I found in the form of some lantana (I hate those plants). When I opened the box, I found that she had defecated. No discharge from the bursa th...

Re: How captivity killed Lolong

Cue the hunt for an even bigger crocodile, which will probably have an undesired effect on the local croc population. Thanks for sharing.

Leopard Tortoise Release

Hi all We live security complex on the outer edges of Nelspruit. I have just found a leopard tortoise outside my house. I do not want it to end up as a pet so I want to release it away from all the houses. But what type of habitat would be best to release it into? We have valley about 500m away wher...

Re: Python natalensis

Thanks froot and Bushviper. Is the age estimate purely based on length? You should be thanking the builders Mehelya. 3 Black men who were working on human rights day, I was very surprised that they chose not to kill the snake and I thanked them each for doing so. The temperament was awesome. Not a s...

Python natalensis

I got a call to say that a snake had been found at a building site close by and that they needed assistance immediately. They had managed to lure the snake into a bucket and put a piece of cardboard on top. Needless to say when the cardboard was lifted I was all smiles. This is the second python tha...

Re: Western Cape-George, saasveld.

Thanks Kenny We visited Goukamma National Reserve for a month during January this year. I had not visited the Cape for 5 years. We camped in Buffels Bay, between Knysna and George. As for reptiles, I only found 1 snake that had been driven over about 10km inland and a few agamas about 20m inland. Du...
