It was cold...(pics!)

Postby alexander » Wed Jul 09, 2008 4:51 pm

During the past 2 weeks i've been away-mostly in the Eastern Cape.
First we went to wody cape neare Kenton-on -sea, we went on the two day trail. Then we went to Addo, then to Graaf-Reinet, then to Karoo N. P.
It was very cold and we found very few snakes, and i felt i deserved more reptiles for the amount of things i turned. :-?
I found:
2 Herald Snakes
brown water snake
delalande's beaked blind snake
3 snake skins-1 def. from cape cobra

Rock monitor
2 species of flat geckos
Karoo girdled lizards
Southern rock Agamas
Spotted t.t. geckos
uni-lacertid
Cape Dwarf geckos
bibron's gecko
variegated skink
and another skink that i haven't id.

Really nice photos, that water snake and rock monitor looks awesome.

SARCA is over...the virtual museum will continue to run but submissions will not be logged in the Red Data book. Keep them coming in though as this will still serve as a central information base...use it as a base line for future studies etc.
what the hell is wrong with me?

Great photos. The 16th one (second after the Ellie). What are they and where did you take it?

Great pictures! All are brilliant but I especially like the malachite sunbird female. It's not easy to get that close!

BTW - what is the second frog?

I have photos of similar things from up North and the closest I could get was a common Caco, but they didn't match perfectly. That why I asked you. You personally know the pro's so it is your job to find out and tell us :)
