On my way to the desert I saw a DOR snake on side of road so turned around and it was a big gopher snake.
This was one of the first road kill wallabies I photographed in Tasmania. I was upset to notice their corpses or piles of bones every mile or so along the roads.
I was shocked to find a dead echidna beside the road about 20 miles south of Swansea. Fortunately we later saw three live echidnas, but none in Tasmania. All the live ones were on Kangaroo Island.
This Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo was dead beside the road between Swansea and Bicheno. At first I thought it was an impossibly huge swallowtail butterfly! I was shocked to see it was such a beautiful bird.
These bones of a wallaby were a typical sight along the roads in Tasmania. This pile of bones was beside the road near the beach just northeast of St. Helens.
This poor Wallaby had recently been killed on the road, probably during the night. We saw several of them at dusk near Bicheno, and then saw three live Wallabies jumping parallel to the road in the morning as we rode our bikes along the road.
My first spadefoot found in the wild, too bad it was DOR, but I figured if there is one there will be more.
I was so sad to find this Tasmanian Devil dead by the road. There aren't many left of this nocturnal, carnivorous marsupial, and they are suffering from a facial cancer that is killing many more. We saw three in captivity in a nature park in Bicheno.
On way back down Mt found a DOR juvenile gopher snake on road, took pics.
