    Herping after the rain.

    So I went to a spot I've been to a few times, but after the rain alot of frogs came out. Probably the highlight of the night was watching an echidna do his/her thing for a little while, without even worrying about me. And of course the endless amount of keelbacks hah, probably saw 60-70...

    SW QLD Herping Trip Part 5 - The Frogs

    These are the frogs that we encountered on the trip, because of the wet weather there were frogs everywhere and we didn't stop for many so I'm sure many species were missed. I have attempted to ID some of the frogs but others I have no idea. If somebody could give a positive identification on...

Both trips were successful. My yakka skink trip took place over the long weekend, and I saw three new species (new to...

    Windorah, Queensland 4 -- in transit herps

    As I mentioned in the first post, we drove an enormous distance in a few days. That, of course, meant many hours of sitting in the car. Naturally, in the dry areas, we saw a fair number of animals on the road. Watching for these or occasional quick stops helped us pass the time while we drove...

    Windorah, Queensland 3 -- Floods and Frogs

    A huge thunderstorm hit the Windorah area on the afternoon as we approached from the south. Flash floods cut the road for awhile in the afternoon until the water levels dropped once again. We arrived late so we weren't delayed but we could see debris on the road. There were pools on the sides...

    Pics from the Brigalow Belt, Queensland
