    2014 has been reasonably good to me so far in regards to the herping trips I have been on. I just wanted to show some of them off... although I'm quite the dreadful photographer. Regardless, here they are.

    Lucasium damaeum - beaded gecko.

    Nephrurus deleani - Pernatty knob-tailed gecko.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Egernia stokesii - gidgee skink.

    I also went to Sydney for a night in early February after the ASH Conference and found these...

    Lialis burtonis - Burton's legless lizard. This female was gravid.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I think finding herps in the field is far more rewarding than keeping the poor things in plastic and glass boxes.
