Still waiting for it to warm up

 This weekend was a right off. Laid up at home with minor health issues but as it turned out  the weather wasn't that flash either so the timing couldn't have been better.
I am planning a weekend away in the next few weeks so hopefully I will be able to report some interesting finds including some of the critters that I need photos of to finish the project.
Worst case scenario at least I should have some fresh reptile and amphibian photos to post.
Once again just to keep some continuity up to the blog I am attaching a couple of reptile photographs from the past year or so, hope you enjoy them.
I will also add another list at the end, this time of the remaining frog calls that I need to record to add to interactive computer program which will complement the book when it comes out.
This Carpet Python was photographed in my backyard a while back.
An unusually coloured Common Tree Snake with a heap of brown mixed in with the more common green colouration.
 A specky juvenile Eastern Brown Snake - beautiful animal.
Major Skink, one of my favourites again.
A gravid Jacky Dragon.

A local Murray's Skink another spectacular animal.

A Southern Leaf-tailed Gecko. A forest dwelling master of camouflage.
And finally a local Southern Angle-headed Dragon, another spectacular resident
of our sub tropical rainforests.
