South Florida: Reptiles and Amphibians

4:15 PM


Typically our blog postings focus on birding: photos, videos and bird lists. For, this posting however we have decided to focus on some of the reptiles and amphibians observed during our most recent (January/February 2011) privately chartered tour to South Florida. Florida is known for its wide variety of reptiles and amphibians species. We saw several species in a wide variety of habitats. We hope you enjoy the below photos from a couple of our sightings (we may have included a few bird photos as well!).
