    sounds like it was a really fun trip. Australia has been my dream trip since i was a kid. sure there's poisonous things down there but seeing those lizards and whatnot first hand and up close would be just so cool.

    I'm hoping to go through a majority of the photos within the next month, so I'll post some updates with pics as I'm able.
    Thanks again for the comments

    Well, we drove probably 5,000 miles and hiked around 120 miles or so in 3 weeks. We covered quite a lot of ground. I'd think if you did a similar amount in the states you'd find at least that many. Not sure if they were ripped off of cars in accidents or just fall off or what.

    We were happy to find the two live ones after finding one DOR a couple of weeks prior. Definitely cool snakes. The one pictured here is about 5.5 ft. long.

    Thanks
    I was happy to find it for sure. We also found two strophurus ciliaris that I really enjoyed photographing as well. Hopefully I'll get to all of the pics one of these days....

    The funny/ironic thing is how we found the S. williamsi.... I'm a mechanic, and my coworker collects license plates....
    I'd found an Australian plate for him a few days before, and we were road cruising one night after herping all day and evening with Emmanuel Van Heygen, and Willi Henkel.
    As we were driving through the chilly fog early one morning I spotted what looked like a potential license plate zip tied about 5 feet off the ground in a tree about 20 feet off of the side of the highway. I said something to Sarah about how it would be ironic if I found a sweet herp on my way to the license plate in the tree. Sure as shit, there was this badass S. williamsi chilling literally 4 inches from the license plate on the tree.
    A few days later Sarah spotted a license plate in the dirt in the ditch.... as I bent down to grab it and dust it off she said " Hey, look around.... maybe it's a sign and we're supposed to find something else" Less than 10 feet away I caught the eye shine of a cool frog species we hadn't found yet under a clump of dirt.... Now I just wonder what may have been laying near the first license plate we found and didn't look around?
