Re: First Herping Trip of the Season (with a lifer)

Hi Ruan, I only have that one from the trip, but I have some from previous trips to the same area that I can load, or pm you... I am pretty clueless with the lizards (crag, girdled, agama and any other), and usually call on The Master Ping to help with ID, although I did not with this one, strangely...

Re: First Herping Trip of the Season (with a lifer)

Thanks Eugene. If the season starts like this, it's going to be a doozy 6 months. Westley. That was an unexpected surprise. Never seen that before, and they are quite a decent size as well. I would have thought that by that size, they would have all dispersed by then, but once again, proven wrong! I...

Re: First Herping Trip of the Season (with a lifer)

Ian, if I don't go out at least twice a month, I would not survive... I have to be in the field, it's part of me like breathing! :lol: Arno, I think this season is going to be very lucky indeed, especially if we get the much-needed rains... I am after a few photographs of a few species where there h...

First Herping Trip of the Season (with a lifer)

A good friend and myself decided, at the last minute on Friday, to head out and do some herping for photos on Saturday (27th August 2016). Little did we know what was in store for us! We started the day out heading to the area that we had spoken of the previous night, and seeing as the girls weren’t...

Re: Searching For Endangered Chameleons - Field Trip Of Note

Stunning as always Fooble! Some real gems there, and excellent photography! Also dig the Yellow-bellies. So, they don't really grow that big huh? Dang, thought they would be bigger than that at least! ;)

Varanus niloticus

I have always had a fascination with our Nile Monitors, but due to them being a TOPS species, and the fact that no one in the country breeds them (as far as I know), I have always had to enjoy them from a distance while they trundle into water, holes, or other unviewable hiding places... End of Apri...

Re: A New Project (Hopefully)

Roland, I'll take a photo of that one in the sun this weekend, as well as two others, if I get a chance, and if the weather plays along. ;) The red ones we get here are rather nice though... ;)

Re: Oodles of Noodles

Westley, Found a complete tree for basically every reptile... http://bmcevolbiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-2148-13-93 Seems like a primitive cobra developed, and then from them came the Rinkhals and Naja (Point 91, Figure 24 W) split... Seems they are older than the Naja species... Foo...

Re: Oodles of Noodles

Thanks Allan! I do love my spitters... :lol: Westley, Good question. I have had a look for any phylogenetic trees containing African Elapidae, or the Rinkhals in general, and cannot find much, but I do notice that the Naja and Ophiophagus have a common starting point (see pic below). Perhaps the Rin...

Re: Fresh Venomous Watch Springs

I know... I still need to take some baby shots, and they are coming. Was cleaning the adults cages this last Sunday, and quickly snapped some top-down shots of the adults... http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p203/kourier/MAINDESIGN-PC/Indigenous%20Snakes/P1160942_zpsldquyrcm.jpg http://i129.photobu...

Oodles of Noodles

Just thought I'd share some of my adult and sub-adult Rinkhals. I am hoping that most of these will breed for me this year again. This group should be ready next year for breeding. Just a bit small for my liking, so they are excused this season. http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p203/kourier/MAINDE...
