None of these are of rattlesnakes :,( I need rattlesnakes, people! But there are other awesome things going on here in my study area in north central Michigan!
Well, I would first like to apologize for my hiatus! My computer has been out of service since I returned from Belize and I just got it back two hours ago. Yay computer! I do have a few photos of the Cockscomb Nature Preserve that I haven’t put in a post yet. This place is a jaguar preserve and besides that is also gorgeous. I saw so many fantastic views and fantastic animals, including an Agami heron, which I was not able to capture in a photo, a boat-billed heron, ringed kingfisher, a neotropical river otter, and various species of frogs which I also did not get to photograph unfortunately. I also got to see amazing views of the park. This was definitely one of the most memorable parts of my time in Belize.
Jan Meerman, owner of Greenhills Butterfly Farm along with Tineke Boomsma, has been kind enough to show me quite a few of the herp species I’ve seen while I’ve been in Belize, including another Northern Cat-eyed snake and a Doflein’s Mushroom-tongued salamander. Such cool species! Photos courtesy of Oliver Muellerklein 🙂
This is the eighth snake I’ve seen while I’ve been in Belize. I think I’m doing pretty good, considering I’m only half way through my time here! Isn’t he or she GORGEOUS? Sorry, I really like snakes 🙂
