A thread dedicated to all the people who like to go out in the wilderness and observe wildlife. It's long overdue!
I went out near Mesquite, Nevada yesterday. It was still wasn't warm enough for most reptiles, but I thought I would give it a shot. 2 1/2 hours of hiking and some what okay weather turned out some cool findings!
The first thing we ran into was a desert iguana. Something I had been dieing to see in the wild.
The iguana was a great with us. Didn't run away or anything. I was able to pick it up and it still didn't freak out like they usually do when you approach them from a distance.
and of course the very cool sidewinder.
Okay people get your hiking pants on go find some wildlife!

Mnemosyne, the idea of a lizard eating a banana is so cute for some reason. I didn't get to see any reptiles when I visited Australia, although the spiders weren't shy of visiting me. So, after looking at all of your badass snakes and lizards, I present you with some little English insects I found last summer:

A female American Bullfrog. Placed her in an aquarium for a few minutres so that I could photograph and examine here, then released her.

It's been a while since I had a decent of amount of time on my hands to browse Neo, so I have a few more pictures than usual to share. Too bad no one has posted anything. Come on people go outside for a change! And take your camera!
Found this guy driving at night. Biggest Glossy snake I have ever seen.
An adult mojave rattler. Very intimidating!
My new pet Long Nosed Snake.
Saw this 4 foot Gopher snakes while I was at work. It was just another routine day working the bee hives (as seen behind me). Next thing I know I see him curled up next to one of the trees providing shade for the hives.
Leaf Nosed snake.
Leopard Lizard. I was excited to see this little girl. I was able to handle her. She turned out to be bearing eggs.
Baby Desert Tortoise eating coyote poo! They seem to love that stuff.

Every time I take my camera I run into nothing.
Saturday I caught two garter snakes in La Crescenta, California, and had no camera.
I did get some cool pictures of a leopard lizard and some desert tortoises a week or so ago. I'll post them soon.

Kunz lied, those pictures are just from the internet; Take a look at the source. BBC? Cuti.com?
The only thing I could catch in the woods today. Every time I come across a snake or something like that I never have my camera on me.

Went out in the early morning today near Boulder City, Nevada, before the temperatures hit 100s. My professor and I were hoping to see some speckled rattle snakes, but no luck with snakes. However, we did see pretty much every type of lizard found in the area and got pictures of a few. I also found a new beetle for my insect collection. I have no idea what it is, I still have to identify it.
