Even though I know they’re super common in all kinds of places, anoles have always seemed exotic to me, since we don’t have them where I live. Same with geckos.
I was born and raised here in Brevard county Florida so they are very common but im still fascinated by these little guys. Its been very interesting watching this little family grow and how they interact with things. They have a little fenced in paradise back here, lol
Every time I walk past milkweed, I have to look for the caterpillars. Yesterday, I was treated to this little guy! I didn’t realize that they start out so green. The fly shows you how small he is. And, if I’m not mistaken, the little froglet seems to be leaning towards a snack attempt. Wish I could have waited around for that fight!
I’m usually finding monarchs, but these guys are all over this week. Anyone know…? I understand, not a reptile. But, you folks all seem to be so knowledgeable!
Looks like a milk weed tussock moth. Very cool
Mr. Bebé Frog is indeed thinking of eating the fly lol. Side eye is real
I want to pet the fluffy little guy
Side eye is real!
That picture is just downright adorable!
Found this little dude on the top of our basement door frame this morning.
It looks a lot like a Pine Woods Tree Frog but the info I found online says they don’t live in our area of NC. It also looks a bit like a Spring Peeper which does live in our area of NC, but it definitely looks more like the Pine Woods.
Depending on where you live, could be a western fence lizard. Looks just like the fence lizards I caught at my grandma’s house as a child. Could also be an eastern fence lizard.
Love the froggy’s expression. “Dang it, I meant to be invisible. I think that big old critter has done spotted me!”
My mid-20s daughter is traveling throughout SE Asia for three months. Naturally, this dad is a bit worried. I had plenty to concern me, wasn’t thinking of this! She sent a pic and said “Ooh, look a snake!” I think it’s an Island Pit Viper. (She’s currently in Bali.) am I correct? - signed Nervous Father
Although it does have a similar color scheme, green body and reddish tail. I think the head is way to slim for a pit viper and the white lipped pit viper you are thinking it may be has a huge triangular, thick head. I think it is a red tailed racer.
It looks like a red tailed green rat snake to me
That is what I am seeing too. I have research the species so, yes, it definitely looks like one.
I just looked it up and somehow i didn’t know that a red tailed green ratsnake was the same thing as a red tailed racer
so it is pretty safe to say @dlhirst, that your daughter is perfectly safe around that snake
That’s crazy. Northern Water Snake I’ve ever encountered has been real feisty.
Goodness, how surprisingly calm. Was the weather cool?
