Germany still has some interesting snakes(if I remember correctly they are protected like wolves) and some cool lizards.About all your posts:
Great summary, great pics.
Somehow, I slightly prefer living in Germany. Even though that means, having just a few snakes to photograph...
For some it was luck while in case of Cat snakes, shieldtails, vine snakes right habitat and right time of years generally are more than enough to guarantee sightings. Let me know if you visit Western ghats during monsoons, I will provide you contacts of guides(I know people for mammals as well from snow leopards to tigers and everything in between) and good resorts at herp spots.Fantastic series of shots. This must be the work of several years of tracking them down. I would love to visit India again.
