I loathe being in photos (says the photographer) but I thought this highlighted the impressive size of an adult eastern hellbender (Cryptobranchus a. alleganiensis), the largest salamander in North America. This old girl was found in an artificial "hellbender hut" we installed for habitat enhancement and came in at 22.5 in. long and 2.3 lbs. She represents one of the fewer than 10 hellbenders known to still persist in the Upper Susquehanna River drainage, sadly. Efforts are currently underway to augment this population with captive-reared juveniles, the main focus of my work. #conservationbiology #herps #herp #herpetology #salamander #salamanders #amphibian #amphibians #amphibiansofinstagram #hellbenders #hellbender #saveamphibians #wildliferesearch #herplover #herplove #herpsofinstagram #herpsofig #salamandersofinstagram #salamandersofig #cryptobranchus #cryptobranchusalleganiensis #snototter #helpthehellbender #olympustg5

“Hello MTV, and welcome to my crib.”
Yall like sneks?
On Sunday while scouring a woodland glade a tiny frog jumped from nearly underfoot. Before I even had my hands on the tiny anuran I noticed a distinct mask surrounding its eyes. "Wooded habitat, dark mask...must be a tiny wood frog," I thought to myself. But I was in for a bit of a surprise upon closer inspection. We have here one of Ohio's tiniest of frogs: the Western Chorus Frog. Note its lack of a dorsolateral ridge and striped dorsum, separating it from the wood frog. And notice my ingenious use of shallow depth of field and angle of my extended finger, hiding my unsightly fingernails which I cannot help but tear off on a regular basis. #wildohio #naturalohio #ohiobiodiversity #bioblitz #biodiversity #canon #canonsee #canonseeimpossible #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #naturalworld #naturalhistory #ecology #ohiogram #outdoors #audubon #audubonsociety #herpetology #herpetofauna #westernchorusfrog #frog #chorusfrog #natgeowild #amphibian #ohionature

Big and healthy females carry more eggs per oothecae. This girl is over 2 inches and thick around, no doubt carrying the next generation of nymphs. #youarewhatyoueat #betterbugs #blapticadubia #dubiaroaches #feederinsects #insectbreeder #insectsofinstagram #bugcrazy #herpsdaily #herplife #herpetoculture #herpetology #herpsofinstagram

Froggo of the day at the Delaware farm. Does anyone know what type of frog this is? #frogid #herpetology and an ambush bug!
Malabar Pit Viper (Trimeresurus malabaricus) is a popular subject among herpetology enthusiasts. They derive their name their geographical distribution along India's West Coast, and for the fact that they have heat seeking pits behind their noses that help detect prey. Venomous as they are, they are not particularly dangerous to humans. Not until you decide to get too close or frisky . . . . #india #maharashtra #amboli #malabarpitviper #snakes #snake #viper #pitviper #herpetology #indian_wildlifes #wildlifeplanet #wildlifephotography #indianwildlifeofficial #thecultpost #bbcearth #lpindia #rain #monsoon #forest #canon #eos #canoneos7dmk2 #canonmacro100mm
It's hard to believe that it's been almost a year! This girl will be a year old at the end of this month. On September 24th I'll be celebrating my year anniversary of getting her, my very first snake! I can't believe she's gotten so big! She just got upgraded to a 32qt bin today. My girl's growing up! Hard to believe she barely fit around my fingers LOL! They grow up so fast 😂😂😂 #reptile #reptiles #reptilesofig #reptilesofinstagram #reptilelover #instareptile #herpetology #herps #animalsofinstagram #hognose #hognosesofinstagram #hognosesnake #hognosesnakes #hognosesnakesofinstagram #westernhognose #westernhognosesnake #westernhognosesnakes #westernhognosesnakesofinstagram #blondewesternhognose #snake #snakes #snakesofinstagram #colubrid #colubridsofinstagram #snek #sneksofinstagram #boopthesnoot

Ana: "Sweet hydration, daily fresh water" ~My anacondas show an appreciation for clean water; when it's cleaned daily they sometimes hop right in the moment the fresh water change is put back in~
Rhinella scitula. Espécie endêmica dos planaltos de entorno do Pantanal. Fotografei esse bicho ontem à noite com o meu celular. O @rodrigo__tinoco falou disso uns dias atrás. Não ter câmera não é desculpa para não fotografar a natureza. #MapinguariUFMS #Herpeto #Amphibian #CallingFrog #Celphotography #Wildphotograph #MorrodoPaxixi #SerradeMaracaju #MeuMS #MinhaPesquisaCapes #IphoneSE #Herpetology

Siphlophis cervinus é uma serpente amazônica, de ocorrência não tão comum. Esse #tbt é pra fazer inveja na @pricarvalho.bio e @diegojsantana que nunca viram essa espécie. 😁 . Dica de fotografia: para fotografar esse exemplar, coloquei uma tampa de balde de 60 litros por cima. Esperei ela se acalmar e se enrolar para conseguir registrar ela assim. . Essa mocinha aí também nos deu um super "olê". Lembra @maisumthiago ? Registro feito em Tailândia, Pará. 🐍 . . . #herpeto #herpetologia #herpetology #snake #wildlifephotography #braziliannature #olhar_brasil #respeiteminhanatureza #saudadedomato #biology #cobra #serpente #biologia #nature #natureza #amazonia #amazonforest #florestatropical #herpgirl #biodiversidade #biodiversity #womaninscience #herpgirls

Huge shout out and thank you to the one and only @jkobylka for this amazing powerhouse. GHI Mojave 100% het Clown 50% het Hypo male. Can't wait to plug him into my Hypo Clown projects...fingers crossed he proves out. As expected, it was a pleasure getting some more JKR stock in my collection. Justin and Chaise are top notch! Thank you both for this amazing animal. @jkobylka
Western Yellow-bellied Racer (Coluber constrictor mormon)- Marin County, California Racers are medium sized, thin, and fast moving colubrids found throughout North America. Juveniles, such as this hatchling, are heavily patterned with spots, bands, and saddles. As the snake matures, the patterning gradually fades until the adult is a uniform color- usually brown to greenish beige in this subspecies. Diurnal, these active snakes hunt in their preferred habitat of grassland and chaparral for insect and lizard prey. #herpetology #herping #fieldherping #racer #coluber #yellowbelliedracer #snake #reptile #colubrid #constrictor #sanfrancisco #marin #california #bayarea #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #hike #hiking #macro #macrophotography #ecology #science #biology
Flash battery ran out, so I improvised. ...Guess I found my new technique! 🤷🏼‍♀️😍 A southern banded water snake warms up in the night air. One of 10+ found in the same spot. • • • • #reptile #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #reptilelover #herper #floridawildlife #herpetology #herping #snake #snakes #snakesofinstagram #wild #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildandfree #nature #naturephotography #florida #travel #explore #exploreeverything #hike #hiking #floridanature #adventure #floridalife #beautiful #colorful #pureflorida #natureflorida
