Re: Common Barking Geckos

Thanks Everyone.

Ruan, they prefer sandy soils but I have found them on plains covered with alluvial gravel as pictured here. They burrow in the soft sandy soils though

Northern Boomslang - Dispholidus typus viridus.

I photographed this boomslang from Hluhluwe. I removed it on a call out from Umhluhluwe Safaris where it was found in their workshop.

Re: Frogs in KZN

Great Photos Nick!

Froot, Reed frogs and many others get quite tolerable if you take your time photographing them while calling and even call when the light shines on them.

Re: Spotted Sand Lizard - Pedioplanis lineoocellata

Where was that skink photographed?

It looks like the Peringueys skink. It was described in 1888 and somehow just disappeared of the scene. . .
