Midlands stint

Postby Durban Keeper » Tue Jul 23, 2013 6:02 pm

Headed out to the Midlands recently for some winter herping.

It's always great finding & photographing something for the very first time...This Mountian lizard was the highlight of the trip.

Tropidosaura montana - Mountain Lizard
Image

Pseudocordylus melanotus - Drakensberg crag Lizard
Image

Image

Duberria lutrix - Common slug eater
Image

Image

Crotaphopeltis hotamboeia - Herald snake
Image

Psammophis crucifer - Cross-marked sand snake
Image

This snake decided to sham death. It remained like this for a few minutes & dashed off to safety once it thought the coast was clear.

Scelotes bourquini - Bourquins dwarf burrowing skink

Thanks for looking.

I agree with everyone else. The colours on that drakensburg crag lizard are absolutely amazing. The picture of the herald is definitely a winner.

Great series, DK.

I'm not much of a lizard guy, but that crag lizard is incredible!
