Broad headed snakes rock on

I've just been out at Yengo helping a fellow student with some field work - you can read about the project in today's Sydney Morning Herald article here. It was a real treat to see my first broad-head (Hoplocephalus bungaroides): this one was nestled in a rock crevice.

Another highlight was this Thick tailed (or Barking) gecko (Underwoodisaurus milli) which we found under a piece of tin. He put on this impressive threat display and even barked and lunged at me a few times as I took his picture.
