Baby eastern water dragon
Love the water snakes it’s always amazing to see how much they really resemble the cottonmouth!Gypsy13 said:I’m not sure how good the pics are but this little beauty was trying to keep warm under a rock at the frog pond. Had to get pics so someone could make sure it wasn’t poisonous. It’s not so it got to stay by the frog pond. If it had of been we’d either take it to an uninhabited area or be too busy thinking how precious it was and just let it go.
Woke hubby. Love love love reptiles. Poor hubby can’t tell a toad from a goat. From his description I’m assuming this is a tree frogLittlebudda said:Found one that I hadn’t posted not my best shot but it’s ok
‘I’ve got a frog pond under my bedroom window. Hubby gets disgusted with all the different chirps, tweets, trills and other frog song. But oh the bullfrogs! I love it all. He thinks I should let him get a gigger. Not. If you get the chance can you do a video to post with sound?Littlebudda said:Eastern banjo frog and as much as I love them they keep me awake all night
I just listened to the pobblebonk! I loved it. Especially the larger groups. Sounds like talking. Whoo Hoo!Littlebudda said:Eastern banjo frog and as much as I love them they keep me awake all night
Newt and salamander are common names for those creepy crawlies in my neck of the woods regardless of species. LolDoubleDutch said:Not familiar with the name "Newt" hahahaha. Learned something today.
There is a phrase in the English language "**** as a newt" which means "very drunk (intoxicated with alcohol)" haha!DoubleDutch said:Not familiar with the name "Newt" hahahaha. Learned something today.
Thanks for explaining Steve.Redshark1 said:There is a phrase in the English language "**** as a newt" which means "very drunk (intoxicated with alcohol)" haha!
We don't use the word Salamander for our Caudata here. Only the word Newt. Newts are in a sub-order of Salamanders.
Webbed hind feet are a characteristic of the Palmate Newt, our smallest newt.
Absolutely. I've been putting out a variety of seeds & nuts for the birds/chipmunks/squirrels - and enjoying watching them do their thing We've got a pair of robins nesting in a big fir tree in our front yard, so we're loving observing them - collecting nest materials, watching for predators, and taking baths in the bird bath.Elkwatcher said:So wonderful to have during this time!
