    Broken Hill Herping

    Hey everyone. I am making this thread to upload photos of each time I go herping in my local area; Broken Hill. I had a few good photos from a year ago, though not sure if I made a post for them as my laptop died recently, so lost a few photos. A few landscape photos from the past couple...

    Live vs Dead Food for Elapids

    I was recently thinking about the pre-digestion role certain toxins in venom play when elapids kill their prey. That made me start thinking about the fact that almost everyone feeds dead things to their snakes which made me start to wonder how that affects their digestion. This may be me lacking...

    Fun Snake ID

    So guys, this has actually already been ID'd for me from multiple trusted sources, but I didn't ID it myself. I thought since the photo quality was pretty poor I'd put it up here and see how you guys went IDing it, and I'll let you know if you're right or not. Untitled by Stephen Mahony, on...

    Some SA herping...

    Just thought I'd show off some of the photos i've taken of local, SA herps over the past ten or so years. I am not a photographer - don't expect perfect photos. This is by far, not everything I have seen but these show some of the animals where I managed to have a camera (not a great one I might...

    Cane Toads.

    Just thought I'd share a few pictures of this cane toad that comes into the laundry and eats our cat food every night. My mum insisted she held it. So I was like. "YES, AND I'LL TAKE PICTURES."- Over enthusiasm. Anyway, here they are. Oh, and by the way, we don't kill them, as my family have...

    Is the use of latin names in posts always necessary?

    I am not that versed in what I assume are Latin names for snakes and lizards and after reading replies to some posts over the last few years I felt it would be a good question. Why do some people tend to use Latin names when replying to posts that have been using common names, eg: rattling off 8...

    Herping out Nyngan/Cobar way?

    Does anyone have any experience with herping out Nyngan-Cobar way? I'm just trying to gauge whether it's worth the drive out there for Sydney siders or whether just as many species can be found in locations around Sydney. I go out that way each year hunting on a friends property but I've never...

    Lake Eyre Basin, Central Western Queensland, Nov 2012

    I recently had a week break from work so decided to visit a couple of my favourite areas in the eastern deserts. The first destination was the Lake Eyre Basin near Winton in central western Queensland. This is one of the relatively close places for me to herp but it was a 26 hour drive from my...

    Killing cane toads

    Whats your views on killing cane toads? I personally think freezing them is ok as its humane, but some people I know will go out on a hunt with a golf club and sledgehammer and beat them to death. Just because theyre pests doesnt mean its okay to torture them and kill them horribly, theyre still...

    Snakebite accounts.

    Mulga Snake vs King Brown Snake

    Some would say I'm pedantic. I say I'm fastidious... What gets my goat is that so many people, including users of this fantastic site, are still, to this day referring to Mulga Snakes as "King Browns"... I thought the general concensus about ten years ago was to remove the name King Brown from...

    East coast VS West coast

    Why are there so many people selling WA snakes over east and none selling in WA? How come you guys can get our snakes but we can't have yours? Can I get one from you if its originally from here? Doubt it. I have only find a couple of reptile-only sellers from WA (minus pet shops) with very...

    Snake ID - Kimberley Western Australia

    I saw this snake over a 3 day period at night in the staff accomodation area at work, and after the last king brown here had boiling water and huge rocks thrown on it, ( before I arrived) There's no way i'd let any reptile suffer that fate here. Anyway, I caught it and relocated it after...

    Female Ven Keepers?

    Ok, so I was talking to a mate of mine and flicking through the elapid thread, and it got me wondering, how many female ven keepers are actually out there?

    What snake is this?? Mk II

    I was at Teemburra Dam the other day (50km west of Mackay) & spotted this guy cruising around in the middle of the dam. It was difficult getting close enough for the shots & not let him in the boat. He's carrying a bit of livestock as well. I assumed he was a Taipan because he looks so different...
