Found this reddish rat snakesnake ( Coelognathus erythrurus psephenoura) on the road, looks like someone had deliberately smashed in it's head, it was still writhing around. First time that I have seen this species here in suburban Iloilo.
This snake was observed in an abandoned lot area. Some children were trying to catch it. I educated the children and then allowed it to go on it's way. Sorry for the poor quality of photo as I only had my phone camera at hand.
Another Juvenile found just outside my house. Photographed and released.
I found this today dead on the side of a road in a suburban street,may have been a victim of a cat. It was covered in red ant's, tried to remove the ants to photograph and turned over to get a belly shot. You can gauge how big the snake is from he size of the ants!
This is another blind snake that came into our front yard, unfortunately our dog tried to step on it. I photographed and released to near where it was found.
This green crested lizard was caught by some children across the road from our house. The local's call it a ' Iguana' but we know that it isn't. It's very quick to go black from bright green when stressed.
This is a wild tokay gecko that has been living in my house since it was a hatchling, we have the front door open everyday, but it prefers to stay inside, usually hiding behind the TV during the day and venturing out at night. Very shy and nervous compared with the common house gecko's that live here also.
House gecko's are probably the most commonly observed reptile in asian homes, and these are plentiful both inside our home and outside.
Preferring to come out early evening onwards to feed, however they can be observed in the open during the day, usually in a shady area or inside behind a curtain. They tend not to mind being near by to others of the same species, although they do sometimes have territorial disputes with other males that come by, sometimes resulting in one losing their tail. I regularly see them with regenerated tails.
This adult cane toad was crossing the road on a warm dry night.
It appeared to have a damaged or infected right eye.
Found this frog whilst walking not far from home one evening photographed and released.
Not sure of the species,a friend thought it might be a Platymantis negrosensis.
This wolf snake was being teased by kids not far from my house in the evening, I rescued it, photographed it and released it back from where it was found.Weather warm and dry.
Juvenile Cane Toad found on a rainy evening on the porch of our house, strangely it was just a few inch's away was a Slender-digit Chorus Frog (Kaloula picta).
The next few nights we also had more juvenile cane toads in and around the front of our house.
Slender-digit Chorus Frog (Kaloula picta)
This was observed on the porch of our house on a rainy evening.
Strangely it was a few inch's away from a young Cane toad (Bufo Marinus)
This snake was found inside our house in the evening of May 9, 2012. It was photographed the next day and released.
