    Show us your: Forgotten Reps / Reps you would like to see more of or in captivity

    I agree with @BredliFreak for the Delmas, and I personally would love to see some more Pygopus. The common scaly-foot, especially with the variety of colours it can be, is gorgeous and would make a very interesting animal to own ("thrives on banana in captivity" -Cogger 2014). Also think...

    Saw this snake near Manly Beach

    He slithered across the path that runs toward North Head just south of Manly Beach near Sydney. By the time I got my camera ready he was already in the sticks so this is the best I could do. What do you guys think? Small-eyed snake? This is my fourth time to Oz and this is my first snake...

    unexpected find!

    I'm driving back from Brisvagas and decided to do a quick detour and came across this guy. I'm fairly certain that these are not common on the sunny coast, this is the first I've heard of one here. He did a beautiful brown snake impersonation too, but I've seen it before so I wasn't fooled (...
