Re: Cote d'Ivoire

So most of the links to the pictures are dead there too. I guess that's what I get for uploading pictures from facebook. Enjoy the album straight from facebook: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 1484de19db

Re: USA I.D request

Your snake is definitely Chionactis occipitalis occipitalis, the Mojave shovel nosed snake.

They're variable in coloration, it looks like that orange one is a real stunner.

Here's a link with more information: http://www.californiaherps.com/snakes/p ... talis.html

Re: Family Vacation to Western Cape

You guys are great, thanks for the help with the IDs, especially you westley. The first one definitely had the pink belly, but I didn't check the second. Here's a nastier looking specimen found from that road too -- I think this one would be L. inornatus too https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-PZiMU_...

Re: Family Vacation to Western Cape

Thanks guys! Real quick, how can you tell Lycodonomorphus rufulus from Lamprophis inornatus? What gave them away?

Family Vacation to Western Cape

It's been a while since my last picture posting, but hey, it's been a while since I was back in Africa. In December my family and I flew out to Cape Town to go to a family friend's wedding. We made a 10 day vacation out of it and went around the Western Cape. Although it was far from a herping vacat...

Re: Sri Lanka

Phew!! Hypnale and triginocephalus in one trip, I'd be jumping for joy! Plus a P. morulus and by far the biggest Ptyas that I've ever seen, that's one awesome post. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Southern DRC

Very cool post, full of wonderful stuff. The big fruit behind the N. nigricolis is also found in West Africa. They're really fun simply because the pods are thick and heavy enough to beat someone over the head with haha! An awesome post indeed, just sorry to see that the majority of things are found...

Re: Somalia and Ethiopia

Now those are some awesome finds! I loved the Telescopsus and the Echis. How did you get around up there? Were you just basically driving around and stopping where you thought there was good herping? Did you have any guides? Do any nice sightseeing? haha.

Thanks for sharing!

Re: Liberia - Goe Fantro

So awesome! If I were still in Cote d'Ivoire I would love to come pay you a visit. I'm jealous of all the Blanding's tree snakes, the hyperolids and of COURSE the Bitis!!! Awesome finds! I just realized that I forgot to respond to your question about Atheris. We found them in seemingly "random&...

Re: Cote d'Ivoire

So you were forbidden to catch a snake, and the rangers or whoever would tell if you did, then do f-all if some one kills one???? I'm sure I'm not the only one missing to see the logic here! What camera are you using in that humidity? When I go into a rain forest to take pictures I take my under wa...

Re: Somewhat New and Coming to SA

Hey Viridovipera, Are you still planning to include Kruger in your trip? If so, I can help out with good camps to go to for great sightings. I am a safari guide specializing in Kruger, so if you want a guided trip I can also help you out. Unfortunately, it seems like going to Kruger will be too exp...

Re: Somewhat New and Coming to SA

That's another reason I posted it here! I'd love any help I can get! And the best part is, trans-continental herping friendships always make for the best vacations ;-)

Re: Somewhat New and Coming to SA

Wow. This is great advice, cheers! I'll definitely be making many stops along the way. For herping on foot, could you folks fill me in on some good places to look around that area? I'm a biologist traveling with my parents -- which is probably as far from a collector as you could possibly be -- but ...

Somewhat New and Coming to SA

Hi Everyone! I've posted on here before briefly about my time in Cote d'Ivoire and have been lurking on the forum ever since. It's an awesome place! My name is Alex and I'm from the USA, and haven't had any African animals to post, so I've mostly just been lurking. However, that may all soon change....
