It's going down, I'm yelling Timber. ...But this ain't a Ke$ha song.  These are Timber Rattlesnakes, and their populations are going down... timber. 
I love these snakes.  To me they are a symbol of true wilderness comparable to bears or moose.  When I see a Timber Rattlesnake, I am forced to recognize that I am in deep in the woods; in a well protected fragment of forest that is undisturbed and natural enough to support these things. 
Unfortunately, they do not receive the same sympathy as the other creatures.  They are thought to be dangerous, menacing animals... but when I saw this one preparing to cross the road I saw it for what it was: a helpless, nearly blind thing that time has forgotten living in a world it does not recognize. 
I felt like I was watching an old man struggle helplessly with new technology or a blind woman waiting for an endless stream of cars to stop and allow her safe passage. 
Until the 1970s people could receive a bounty for killing a Timber Rattlesnake.  Today they suffer from a deadly fungus and the special places they live are in constant threat of destruction. 
When you see a snake, remember you're seeing something special... something that has survived a history so deep it's hard to fathom by hiding away deep in the mountains, swamps or under the ground.  Look around you and appreciate what nature is still there to enjoy.  They deserve respect like all the creatures of the forest and they could surely use our help.

This is the defensive display of a Blunt Vinesnake (Oxybelis brevirostris). Strikingly the snake was not aggressive towards me, but to his own reflection in my macro lens. 
The Blunt Vinesnake is an active diurnal species that feeds on frogs and lizards. As an arboreal snake it is dependent on good forest. 
As you can see on the photo the snake is rear fanged. You can see the fangs almost in the snake's throat. That means the snake has to "chew" to envenom its prey. The venom is not dangerous to humans.

So, when I first parked at the pond where I'd find the juvie moccasin, this little friend came right out in front of my car as I was stepping out! A gorgeous baby banded #watersnake with a hell of a bite for being the size of my hair stick. Funny how the  nonvenomous snake had a worse attitude. #fieldherping #herping #herpetology #nerodia

Fighting Cope's Gray Treefrogs (Hyla chrysoscelis), Louisiana.
On sunny days cold blooded creatures are often attracted to the warmth of roads and bike paths. Unfortunately this often leads to high mortality rates. I found this Slow Worm sunning itself on a bike path. Judging by the smile on its face it wasn't too worried about the traffic! 
In Dutch it is called a Hazelworm however it is not a worm, nor is it a snake. It is a legless lizard. Having lost their legs long ago through evolution, they appear quite snake like yet they retain some key features that make them lizards - Their tounge is not forked, they have ear openings and they have eyelids. So if you ever see a snake that winks at you, think twice 😉

Blainville's Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma blainvillii)- Contra Costa County, California 
Throughout their range in the San Francisco Bay Area, Horned Lizard populations are threatened by habitat loss and the introduction of invasive ant species. Small and delicate, hatchling Horned Lizards are vulnerable to predation by birds and other animals. These small lizards utilize amazing camouflage to blend in with its surroundings. With @waterbod and @kelenkeller.

Am Wochenende konnten wir in dieses hübsche Zauneidechsen Männchen entdecken. Nicht mehr so intensiv gefärbt wie im Frühjahr, aber immer noch ein toller Anblick. Das Tier fand sich an einem Waldweg innerhalb eines lichten Kieferwaldes, ein nicht ganz klassischer Zauneidechsenlebensraum.

Sitting in the airport in San Pedro Sula after an incredible field season in Cusuco National Park. All in preparation for my own telemetry project to start in a few months time! I'll be radiotracking these guys, the Honduras Emerald Palm Pit Viper, Bothriechis marchi. The spatial ecology of this species has never been studied, so my project will attempt to answer those questions. ———————————————

Mindo was one of the most anticipated destinations of my trip to Ecuador. The weather did not really help, because it had been very dry for a while. Despite the weather we did see three Emerald Glassfrogs (Espadarana prosoblepon) during the first night hike. 
The blue things in the armpits are the humeral spines. Males have notably enlarged humeral spines. Male glass frogs engage in fights, and males have been observed using their humeral spines in a weapon-like context.

In nature common toads normally don't get older than 10 - 15 years but in captivity they can reach an age over 35 years. This one is about a month old. For the first 3 to 5 years the youngsters live in the forests, hunting and growing. After that they will migrate with the other adults to their spawning water. But it's a hard and long way to get there. Good luck! ⠀

I am usually out at night to look for amphibians and reptiles, but sometimes I encounter other interesting stuff. This "Chewbacca spider" (Star Wars-fans will see it) was sitting next to her home on a leaf. The next day I looked for the spider, and the spider was inside her home. If someone knows the real scientific name of this "Chewbacca spider" I would like to know. :) Feel free to follow me on Instagram. :) #wildlife  #photography  #wildlifephotography  #naturephotography  #nature  #ecuador  #spider  #spiders  #arachnids  #arachnid_perfection  #arachnida  #herping  #photo  #wildlifephotographer  #herpetology  #animal  #animals  #macrophoto  #fieldherpetology  #macro  #fieldherping  #animallovers  #animallover  #naturelovers  #nature_perfection  #wildlife_perfection  #1frame4nature  #wildtropics  #wildlife_seekers  @canonnederland @ecuadortravel_ig @ecuadortravel @wildplanetphotomag @wildlife_perfection @world_wildlife @wildlifephotographicmag @official_wildlife_earth @natgeo @naturephotoportal @theanimal_planet @canon_photos @earthpix @stateoftropics @1frame4nature #arachnid 
The White-crowned Snake (Cacophis harriettae) is a small elapid snake found in the coastal regions of subtropical eastern Australia. 
This little guy was in the drier western  part of its range at Lake Broadwater.
