    Finally took a pic of the monitor that still lives. He has quite the attitude, hissing at everyone today...

    This guy was curious, investigating me at the front of the cage

    One of the many atrox. This guy is relatively lightly colored, others are very dark and some (like the guy that escaped last week) are pinkish

    This guy is very chill on the other hand. No rattling, no biting, nothing. Just investigating at the front of the cage

    Coachwhips on the other hand always have bad attitudes.

    As do these guys

    This might be all the photos for a while, unless I see something really cool.

    Too bad the mangrove monitor is so bad-tempered. A really beautiful species. On the other hand the little carpet python is a beauty and seems docile.

    I love carpet pythons! Coachwhips are very cool snakes with really nice color variations. I've been lucky enough to find a few wild ones, while fishing, that were pretty calm. It looks as if the mangrove is striking a pose for ya Great shots as usual, thanks for sharing!

    Bluemax: yeah, he's a beautiful animal, but that attitude really is typical of most monitors. With the exception of water monitors they tend to not be friendly animals overall. And the carpet python is definitely docile. Had her out again today, even though she's heading into shed.

    Knuckles: you actually found Coachwhips without attitude?? Sure they weren't just cold?

    I was wondering if "Reptiles of UNC" was some sort of calendar from the fraternities in Chapel Hill. I guess not.

    Beautiful snakes and lizards, Hawken!

    Wrong UNC

    Only one pic from today, but another I have yet to show. A lot of the Caribbean racers are under threat of extinction (the Antiguan racer is one of the rarest snakes in the world), not sure if this one is too though

    A couple more pics from the UNC room:
    This snake was in shed, but even so had a lot of iridescence that they're famous for

    And this little pain struck the glass as I was snagging this pic.

    Probably my last update for a while, as school actually begins. Though I may post pics from the field trips I'll be taking this year....
    One of several newbies from Arizona
    Sonoran sidewinder-Crotalus cerastes cercobombus by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    This is the same girl I posted before, the larger of the pair. She's at least 6, maybe 7 feet long or more, and very intelligent

    Who can't love that face?
    Bullsnake-Pituophis catenifer sayi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    This may have been the only time I've ever seen this guy active; he was actually roaming around the tank, as opposed to sitting in a corner like usual
    Gila monster-Heloderma suspectum by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Another newbie. Apparently blacks don't start out that way
    Arizona black rattlesnake-Crotalus cerberus by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    There was also a nice L. alterna near this one, and in another nearby tank an Arizona coral, but they were both hiding...

    One of several animals with an amazing goldenrod color. One newbie also has a striped tail, but she was too far back to see well

    Argentine racer-Philodryas baroni by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Jumping Viper-Atropoides nummifer by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    I hate how dirty the glass on this one is, so hard to get a good pic, but he's always curious when I come over

    In the cage next to this one, the rattler broke his rattle, so I have it now
