So I thought I'd post a thread sharing some of my photo's from this years sightings. I've been able to find a whole heap of new species for me in my local area, a rather broad definition of the word 'local' too. I will start with reptiles from the newcastle-central coast vicinity...

Hi all. I am interested in how many keep, or have kept Stephens Banded Snakes. They are one of my favourite elapids however very few people seem to keep them and fewer keepers seemed to have bred them - or bred them consistently anyway (I know of a few people who seem to have bred them once by...

My b/f is a wildlife relocator.
Hi, Wanting to buy a female Stephens Banded Snake. Sub-adult/adult preferred but will consider any age/size. Must be legally acquired specimen, captive bred preferred. Message me or call on 0427039540.:D
I found this on the footpath this morning in the middle of sydney. Was under powerlines so i dont know if a bird had it and dropped it or where it came from. What the hell is it? Some sort of corn snake?
I was going through the forums and I came across this snake. But the details on the availability is a bit old . I was wondering if anyone knew someone that breeds them, or works with them?
they are a really neat looking snake, needless to say.
Hi all you snake lovers,
Does anyone know what kind of Australian snake is similiar to the attached pic? We found one in our backyard (Kellyville, Sydney) this evening and are curious to know what it is. Noooo we didn't kill it, we caught it and let it loose in the forest.
I've attached a...

These lizards are very...
I'm a newbie and dont own reptiles, but have a property where they happily live.
My 1st question for the forum is.
I caught a Stephens Banded Snake in the aviary yesterday , it is fully mature but very placid. Does anyone have experience with this breed of snake ?
Finally took the new 4WD out for her 1st proper herp trip last night, came across a few animals, most were camera shy and was impossible to get some pics of them, especially the grumpy Stephens that kept trying to eat the camera, therefore had to take photo's without looking through the view...
I finally taken the troll out for a couple of dirt trips and did some spotting. I saw thousands of snakes, unfortunalty most were Barkus barkus and Brownus stickerii :). Real snakes have been a bit thin on the ground with only a cute BTS in a public toilet ( no photos, sorry) and a large...

Those who answered A or B are sick puppies! Seek help or suffer the rolled up newspaper :)

Copied from my blog.
The other weekend I went up to the Lamington Plateau with a friend of mine. We were hoping to find a bunch of Coeranoscincus reticulatus (after my extraordinary luck with them last time). Sadly, no coeranoscincids were to be found. But we did see a bunch of other stuff...

On New Year's Eve I was kickin' it old school, by driving up a mountain to look for crocodiles. We didn't find any crocodiles, but we did come across some other reptiles. There seemed to be a few other like-minded people up the mountain. If you were up there, you may well have seen me. I was the...

Just a quick post regarding the Frog And Tadpole Study group field trip last weekend. It was warm and overcast all day and we got a tiny bit of rain in the arvo.
We got a few frogs but the stars of the night were the reptiles.
Amongst other species we saw several Dwarf...

A few of us went on the FATS (Frog and Tadpole Study group) field trip to Smiths Lake on the weekend.
It's right by Seal Rocks, so we went for a bit of a swim before the serious business of herping went on. Heres a pic of the beach.
It was a great night on the Friday, a hot day and a...

In January, my wife and I spent 10 days in Brisbane. I was there for work so was not able to to much herping. We did visit the Lamington Plateau on a weekend (subject of another post). I also went night driving in the Mt. Glorious area on three occasions and this report will include the...
It is a common discussion amongst snake enthusiasts as to how vens compare re; toxicity, deadliness, etc...
I thought you might find this table interesting, it is based on comparison with the toxicity of the Indian Cobra venom, which is assigned a 1 rating.
The table is not mine, but comes...
I went out herping the other night and came across a beautiful little bandy bandy. Its the first and hopefully not only time I have ever seen one. Now I am curious about how I can go about owning one, if possible.
I assume that because they are venemous, they can't be kept on a normal...
I'm looking at getting some more snakes at a later date. I have two children's to date and will be looking for other snakes that grow to the same size 1 to 1.5m long. Can you give me some names of snake that grow to this size please.
