Desert tortoise in habitat. Staying cool in a burrow on a mountain side, they will often share the same den sites with other reptiles. #tortoise #reptilesofinstagram #reptilelife #herpetology #herpingaz #hike #hikeaz #ido #sonorandesert #arizona #deserttortoise #desertlife #photography #live

The lyre snake is such a fascinating species with their large cat like eyes and rear fangs yielding mild venom, seems like a snake that belongs in the jungles of South America. I did take a bite from this snake but it was unable to sink it's rear fangs into my finger. Not to be afraid this venom dose not cause much more than swelling and irritation.

Can you spot the snake? I did this relocation recently. If you live here in the desert, it's important to keep piles of debris, yard waste, or building materials. These are great little hiding spots for critters that you may not want on your property.

I'm fortunate enough to have a flowing creek/drainage/irrigation... thing.. running through my neighborhood and behind my house, so we commonly see some cool species right in the backyard.  This Common Kingsnake (Lampropeltis getula) was found by my neighbor yesterday and I removed it. I have always loved kingsnakes.

So it begins ! My first of the 2018 snake season was a beautiful #speckledrattlesnake in west az that was docile and young . Didn't even flinch when my dog trotted past . As you can see it was hard to spot! I was right behind my dog and put her in a down stay while I photod this beauty . Will post a close up later :) #herping #herpingaz #rattlesnake #scaled #camoflauge #deserthiking

#TBT THROWBACK to one of my first ever Gila Monsters when I first started officially herping as a teenager. I had a cheap Sony camera that I knew nothing about, and just randomly hiked the first patches of desert I could find. Although I've seen countless since, these little tanks are always a fun and welcomed sight.

Sonoran Mud Turtle (Kinosternon sonoriense) that was chilling in a creek soaking up the springtime sun. This species of turtle can be found in places you'd never think you'd see a turtle. These guys are like my "guilty pleasures" out here in Arizona - by far one of my favorite reptiles.

Midnight visitor - I thought of taking this Longnose Snake (Rhinocheilus lecontei) to the desert for a "naturalistic" habitat shot, but didn't feel like that would give the find justice. I was called by a friend who wanted this snake removed from his property. As urban environments push further into wilderness, scenes like this become more and more common. It is important to be familiar with local flora and fauna as you live on the boundaries of civilization. .

Got to see some beefy male Diamondback Rattlesnakes (Crotalus atrox) rooting around. Unfortunately I was a couple minutes behind and didn't get to see them battle like my friends did just before me. Big bummer to miss it, but really cool to see them hang out.

Fresh new field journal for this upcoming season! I've just about filled my recent one. I can't begin to express how important good, detailed field notes are as a naturalist. Good notes answer the questions that have not yet been asked. I look through my past records and notes constantly throughout the year to see trends and things I could possibly repeat. I highly recommend it to everyone that gets out!

The Sonoran Coralsnake (Micruroides euryxanthus) is a secretive fossorial snake that is always a treat to see in the field. They are fixed-fanged elapids that are cousins with the cobras and kraits. As venomous as they are, they are extremely docile and there are no recorded deaths from envenomations.

The Checkered Garter Snake (Thamnophis marcianus) is a common sight for us here in my neighborhood. Especially when the rains come around. So it's not often do I think to take the time to photograph them. I need to do it more!

This beastly female Mexican Hognose Snake (Heterodon kennerlyi) was found with @jb_martineau last season on a very last-minute trip down south. That morning went something along the lines of "Berk, wanna go see your lifer hog? Can you leave in 20 minutes?" .

The Variable Sandsnake (Chilemeniscus stramineus) is a funny little snake that spends most of its time in the soil and sand. They are harmless insectivores. This was a pretty good sized one we road cruised in the spring.

I was lucky to see a good amount of Gila Monsters (Heloderma suspectum) this year. These animals never cease to amaze me. Their are slow, methodical way of life that is perfectly adapted for the desert is fun to observe. These venomous lizards spend over 90% of their lives underground, and their diet consists of food that can't get away such as eggs and baby rodents

Another monsoon-specific species we found this year. The Arizona Mud Turtle (Kinosternon arizonense) lives in one of the most desolate, nasty deserts that you would never expect to find an aquatic turtle. For most of the year they hide themselves in burrows and packrat nests, but as soon as the monsoon rains hit and puddle form they are out in numbers. .

The beginning of the Arizona Monsoon season is full of sounds at night. This Sonoran Green Toad (Anaxyrus retiformis) and all the thousands of other around it were a definite culprit for an area we explored this year. When the rains come there is a rush for amphibians to get together and mate so that the puddles can harbor their tadpoles before it dries up. That's their excuse anyway 😉.

Every day I drove by this cave I looked out at it because it looked snakey. Finally on my last ditch effort for rock rattlers I saw my goal species  as a lifer for the whole trip. (The day before I just missed someone bringing one over while I was at the silent auction.) #herping #herpingAZ #crotalusmolossus #rattlesnake #lifer #biologyofsnakes
