With skin resembling the colour of flowing lava and its prehistoric appearance, the Gila Monster (Heloderma suspectum ) was the species of lizard I was hoping to observe and photograph most while I was in Arizona recently. Their population as a whole is considered to be in decline from threats such as illegal poaching, habitat loss from human impact and expansion, and land clearing for agriculture (just to name a few ). This only makes them harder to see in the wild, so you can imagine I was ecstatic to find and photograph this individual after searching for almost a week. A venomous lizard may sound scary to some, however they pose no danger to humans unless captured or handled incorrectly. Their diet is largely the contents of mammal, bird, and reptile nests. Feeding on eggs or small helpless prey doesn’t require the use of venom, and while it may aid in digestion, the venom is most likely used for defence against predators. The venom inflicts immediate severe pain on the bite victim, followed by weakness and a rapid drop in blood pressure. To deliver its venom, the Gila monster possesses recurved, grooved teeth. When it bites down with its powerful jaws venom enters the wound via large, elongated venom glands are under each side of the lower jaw. When they bite a predator (or silly human who handles one without the relevant training or experience ) they tend to hang on and ensure their venom is delivered. The bite victim usually has a hard time removing the lizard which only serves to increase the pain and discomfort of a bite. Like all native wildlife they are an integral part of the ecosystem, but for the general public, they are best left admired from a distance. #gilamonster #arizona #lizardsofinstagram #lizardlife #lizard #fieldherping #herping #herpetology #herpsofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #reptilelover #reptile #wildlifephotography #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #natgeo #Earthcapture #wildphotography #animalplanetupclose #wildlifeig #natgeoimagecollection #wildplanetphotomag #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #wildographer #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeonearth #instanature #earthinfocus

The Desert Horned Lizard is a remarkable lizard from southwestern U.S and northwestern Mexico. This spiky little pancake of a lizard fits in the palm of a man’s hand and is built rugged for life in the harsh desert it inhabits. For protection it’s armed with spiky scales all around its body, the most impressive of which are a crown of cranial spines around the back of its head. As they are not built for speed, desert horned lizards rely on camouflage to avoid predation. Take one look at the colour of the cactus in the background and you’ll see how good they are at matching their surroundings. 📸 Desert Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma platyrhinos ), near Phoenix, Arizona U.S.A #hornedlizard #arizona #lizardsofinstagram #lizardlife #lizard #fieldherping #herping #herpetology #herpsofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #reptilelover #reptile #wildlifephotography #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #ausgeo #Earthcapture #wildphotography #animalplanetupclose #wildlifeig #natgeoimagecollection #wildplanetphotomag #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #wildographer #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeonearth #instanature #earthinfocus @BBCEarth @discovery @natgeoimagecollection

#Repost @earth • • • • • • “I have spent hours and hours watching elephants, and come to understand what emotional creatures they are. It’s not just a species facing extinction, it’s massive individual suffering.” - Dr. Jane Goodall - @doyoutravel having a magical encounter with a wild elephant in Kenya. Did you know the elephant population has dropped 62% in the last ten years? An estimated 100 African elephants are killed a day by poachers seeking ivory, meat and body parts, leaving only 400,000 of these beautiful creatures remaining. They could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade if we don’t do something. We need stronger protection policies for these animals on the government level. If you plan on going to see an elephant, it’s important to consider if it’s ethical. Make sure you research ahead of time. Stay away from anywhere that capture animals from the wild or provide unhealthy living conditions. Avoid riding elephants and souvenirs made from animals, such as ivory products. No one wants to imagine a world without elephants, but it's a definite possibility unless we make a global effort to preserve them. #animalplanetupclose #animalsofinstagram #animalplanet #animaloftheday #wild #wildlife #outdoors #animals #wildanimals #conservation #nature #animallovers #instanature #wildgeography

THE AMAZING SIDEWINDER! The Sidewinder (Crotalus cerastes ) is a species of venomous pit viper from the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. With its characteristic ‘horns’ over the eyes and the sidewinding locomotion for which it was named, it is perhaps our most distinctive rattlesnake in the Arizona. The purpose of the horns (enlarged supraocular scales ) over the eyes is not clear. However, they may help protect the eyes while moving through burrows or prevent sand drifting over them as the snake lies buried in it. They may also act as shades against the intense desert sun. Regardless of their function, they give the snake a distinctive look and make for a badass head shot! 🖼 Prints available #crotalus #rattlesnakes #arizona #sidewinder #snakesofinstagram #fieldherping #herping #herpetology #herpsofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #reptilelover #reptile #wildlifephotography #natgeoyourshot #jawdroppingshots #yourshotphotographer #Earthcapture #wildphotography #animalplanetupclose #wildlifeig #natgeoimagecollection #wildplanetphotomag #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #wildographer #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeonearth #instanature #earthinfocus @BBCEarth @discovery @animalanet @natgeoimagecollection
