I'm a herpetologist by training but a naturalist at heart. My masters thesis is looking into the Panamint alligator lizard, Elgaria panamintina. In particular I'm focusing on identifying its range and testing out a variety of novel techniques which may benefit the field of herpetology as a whole. I post things that interest me and often post updates on what I'm doing in the vertebrate museum, in the field, or in the lab.

Not only are these shoes ugly, but that skin really doesn’t look like rattlesnake skin… or if it is it’s not any species I’m familiar with…
Why do people think snake skin shoes are awesome? They’re horribly tacky and just as bad as fur coats in terms of animal husbandry/treatment… 
People never cease to confuse me, I really hope these don’t actually become a trend for next year.
