This girl is just awesome! She is actually breathing right now. They barely break the water just enough to breath through their nostrils. Other than these brief moments she lives a fully aquatic life.

This cobra was so mad at me for cleaning his cage yesterday. Whenever I walked by I got this response for the rest of the day!

This beautiful snake is a Sumatran Pit viper one of our new arrivals this summer. It’s venom is potentially lethal and  it has no anti-venom!  Ok, So the truth is that in this case seeing that there is no anti-venom on the clinical toxinolgy website sounds a lot scarier than it is. While their has been no specific anti-venom developed for this snake their venom is believed to share enough similarities with other members of the trimeresurus genus that their bite can be treated with green pit viper antivenin. .

One of Arizona’s four protected species of rattlesnake. I didn’t get to see one in the wild last week but I at least got to see this one at the Chiricahua Desert Museum.

These were all from our second night herping in the chiricahuas. We found a checkered garter snake, another couple spade foots, a tarantula, and more baby diamondbacks than I could photograph.

One of our Rattlesnakes mid shed. I didn’t finish filming him because he seemed pretty uneasy about me watching him. .

They aren't the best pictures of my life but last night was one of my best nights herping in a long time! In order of appearance and the order that they were found last night; we turned up a Lyre Snake, a Western Diamondback, a Mojave Rattlesnake, a female Couch's spade foot toad, a male Couch's spade foot toad, and one more Western diamondback to round out the night! Should I do a post on any of these species in more detail?

One of our Sri Lankan Pit vipers walking her prey down fang by fang. A helpful skill for a snake that Spends many of  it’s meals hanging in tree tops! .

The name of the game is keeping both of their mouths full until they have both finished their mice. If one finishes early they will try to steel their partners food right out of their mouth.

Thanks to their hard work we dug up 14 healthy eggs today! Asian water monitors can lay up to 40 eggs in a year  over two cluthes. Unfortunatley the eggs can take over 6 months to hatch.

Terciopelo feeding time. It is not uncommon for people who are bitten by this snake to lose body parts far from the bite site due to wide spread necrosis. People have been bitten on the hand and end up losing a foot. Definitely not a snake to mess with!

A quick glimpse of this guy above the sand. This soft shelled turtle spends most of his time below the sand with just his nose and eyes exposed. Here you can see him parascoping for a quick breath of air.

This is one of our fiesty Samar cobras. The basket she is in looks great and doubles as a convenient shift box which is good because she is not shy about spitting!

This is currently the longest rattle in our collection belonging to a prairie rattlesnake. It looks like she has about 19 beads to her rattle putting her just ahead of our Tortuga island rattlesnake.

I love this snake. @exotic_snakeman_samarensis brought this guy back from the edge and it has been doing great ever sinse!

This beautiful snake’s common name is actually the “beautiful pit viper.” While their venom is considered potentially deadly deaths are rare and reactions to their bites are usually minor. .

This is the skull of a red tegu. One of the big differences between tegus and monitors is that they are omnivorous which you can see by the molars in the back of this jaw. Despite resembling monitor lizards tegus are more closely related to whiptails! ..

PHS recently added this beauty to the collection. Emerald tree boas can grow to a length of 6 ft and have some of the largest teeth of any species of non venomous snake. They have these long teeth to help ensure that they don't drop their prey when hunting high in the forest canopy.

PHS was called to remove this little guy from someone’s garage today. But the problem with relocating Gila monsters is that they must be kept as close as possible to where they are found. Relocating them anymore than a quarter mile is usually a death sentence. So to the disappointment of the neighbors who yelled at me not to release him I walked him up the hill just a bit past the development to let him go. Hopefully he stays clear of the homes but if not what can you expect. He was here first! 🤗
