Great pics Lourance!

I quite like the frog pictures and the Typhlosaurus. I have not yet seen them with that "pied" colours. Is that typical of the species?

Doesnt seem like winter is bothering you too much, haha.

Regarding the Acontias, where was it found? I recall reading that the subspecies namaquensis is now a full species, so might be that?

Thanx for posting!

Thanks for the comments.

Westley, the Acontias was found in Potchefstroom, all the T caecus that I have found have looked like that, so I assumed it was pretty normal. Winter is good fun, LOL.

Awesome finds Lourance!

The picture of the close-up of the Baboon Spider fangs is special, not to mention scary and anything!

It's pics like these that make me want to get into frogging.
