I trimmed back the pothos and added the plant on the left. I also added new isopods, since Callie seemed to have eaten all of the previous group. I don’t have any current plans for inhabitants, but for now I’m happy to keep the plants and clean up crew.

With nearly 250 attending Natureversity each and every year, we see a lot of irrational fear towards bugs, spiders and snakes. Our goal is to allow students to spend time learning about these creatures on their own terms. Slowly exposing them to these wonderful beneficial creatures again and again in small doses until each individual feels confident to get close and hold one. Each day students get closer and closer towards understanding and appreciation. Today one of our girls got a chance to hold her first snake and loved it. What a rewarding moment as an educator when a student no longer fears something that is perceived as dangerous yet is completely harmless, all because of patience persistence and practice of positive encouragement. fearless nature snakes reptiles herpsofinstagram herps gartersnake naturenerd naturelover outdoors sustainable natureeducation nofear snakesofinstagram igtexas unschooling austintexas bushcraft survival naturalist

Even though I love me some Rüdiger, out of the 16 species of Cyclura my favorite has to be a tie between the Allen Cays, Ricord's and the White Cay.

I'm spending this earthday in recovery from my herpetology class field trip. 25 people, 2.5 days, no showers, and 45 square miles of explorable swamp and marshland in Southeast Missouri (so obviously no dry socks either). This was a team effort between MSSU and the University of Central Missouri. We found 24 species of herps in just under 48 hours. We explored the mdc Duck Creek Conservation Area as well as the nps Mingo National Wildlife Refuge. Herp pics coming soon. For now, here are tired, smelly, and happy mammals. earthday2019 wildlife animals nature wilderness ecology fieldseason wetlands swamp marsh nationalparks snakes turtles amphibians reptiles lizards deogs toads salamanders herpetology herps fieldherpetology science biology

Today is the day we as a society celebrate Planet Earth. Perhaps this represents a critical failure in our collective moral compass—after all, what could be more important than the rocks we stand on, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and our biological companions that make our lives worth living? Should we not be celebrating this planet every waking second of every day, doing everything in our power to maintain its health and beauty, if not for the sake of the living then for the sake of those yet unborn? It isn’t shopping malls and golf courses that make us who we are; it’s that marvelous and unique confluence of geosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and, of course, biosphere that we call the Earth system. Everything alive is dependent on it, and has been for the past ~4.2 billion years of evolution. Planet Earth is almost surely not the only body in the universe to support life, but it definitely is the only place to support life as it appears here. The astonishing biodiversity of which we are a part represents the most recent chapter of the greatest story ever told: the History of Life. Yet rewind the tape and play it back, and the story might look very different. We must appreciate the fragility of the system that just so happened to allow our species to rise to dominance, and let it humble us. A species that has existed for just a sliver of a chapter in this great story is controlling the plot of the next chapter. And it is looking to be quite grim. I implore you to do your best to limit your impact on our planet not just today, but every day. Educate others, and celebrate the magnificence of our one and only home. Pictured above is my lifer tiger rattlesnake (Crotalus tigris) found on a mountain with an approaching monsoon in the distance. A representation of geosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere in one image.

This Earth Day, we celebrate the Eastern Hellbender (Cryptobranchus alleghaniensis), the world's 3rd largest species of aquatic salamander. The Hellbender was just voted Pennsylvania's state amphibian. These United State natives are found in cold, clear, oxygenated streams with abundant slab rocks - the same habitats that support healthy trout populations Shown here is shaverscreek Hellbender during a training session. This salamander came to shaverscreek from buffalozoo from their reintroduction program. naturiotism amphibians hellbender salamander herps paherps conservation pennsylvania pennstate earthday unitedstates shaverscreek coldwater freshwater chesapeakebaywatershed buffalozoo aza iacuc

My first lifer of spring was this Slowinski Corn Snake from north east Texas. While hiking around looking for Western Pymgys we found this awesome snake under a log, I saw a partial coil as I removed some tall grass from the edge of the log while looking for a good place to grip and flip it. It was an exciting turn of events after having a relatively slow evening, of a long day of herping.

Easily the hardest Snake to find in my home County, I some how managed to get all the big 4 in one after work outing?!? So insane! It always bothers me when people call Gopher Snakes, Bull Snakes bc they aren’t They don’t have that traditional tall face that gives them their classic look like Bulls and Pines. This is because Bull/Pine Snakes rostral scale (the scale directly above their mouth in the center of their face) is twice as tall as is it is wide, (Gophers rostral scale is even, as tall as it is wide). So do everyone a favor (probably only me) and don’t Gopher my Bullsnakes :)

I had been kinda surprised I hadn’t seen a Coral yet this year. We had some heavy rains a few nights ago and wasn’t too unexpected my first snake that followed, was this nice Texas Coral Snake, with a full belly of snake.
