With a passion for travel and for herpetology, I plan on embarking on a year-long Eurasian adventure early 2012, exploring many countries and getting to know their reptilian wildlife.

12/11/11 Herp Fri–er, I mean Sunday

Herp Friday is a weekly post highlighting all things scaley. So don’t miss it! In the past, I’ve mentioned–quite profusely, really–that I’ll be field herping as I travel, and I’ve even dropped a few scientific names of the ones I really wish to find, but I realize the herper community is still rather small, and … Continue reading

Site Changes to Come (though not many)

If you’re anything like me, you might be getting tired of looking at the same blank-white blog every time you visit, so I’ve decided to do some things about that. First of all, and the most obvious change that I’m working on, is a background image that actually looks good and is relevant to the … Continue reading

Catching Up on the Happ’s

Okay, so I’m a bad biscuit that cannot easily update this thing regularly, but December is the month for reform! That’s write, (see what I did there?) I have a shaky schedule scribbled onto my calendar, and every day has a number of things I have to do. I do them before I touch the … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Thanks

It’s time again–the Thanksgiving decorations have already been neglected at the stores, Christmas has long since muscled its way into every single advertisement, and you’re busy looking for that fantastic turkey deal at the very last second. Ignoring the fact that Thanksgiving, for the most part, is grossly historically inaccurate, it’s widely used with varying … Continue reading

Herp Friday

This Friday, I’ll be shining a light on those pesky misconceptions that often get snakes and people harmed or killed. Snakes are just like any animal, and they deserve a healthy dose of respect, but they need not be feared (yes, I’m talking about the deadly ones as well, don’t give me that look). All … Continue reading

Options and Opportunities: Then

So what am I going to do when I’m traveling to make money? I would love to say I can handle it all as I go, that this blog will make enough to at least get me food (hah!), and I need not worry, but–OH WAIT! This is reality. So, of course, as I’m wont … Continue reading

Options and Opportunities: Now

So I’ve covered the Why behind my travels, but I have yet to uncover the How. I’ve alluded to saving up and taking jobs here and there, maybe taking a job in Cambodia if I could learn the language a little better (Khmer is a tad harder to find online than, say, French), and I’ll … Continue reading

Series: Final Goals for 2012

Goal #4 Possibly the least personal and most tangible goal of the bunch is my wish to document at least one hundred species of snakes, and fifty species of miscellaneous animals. Of course, sometime in my life I hope to discover just one species new to science, I highly doubt I would be able to … Continue reading

Series: More Goals for 2012

Apologies for the delay, I’ve had some technical difficulties with my laptop–now dubbed BrokeAss. I’m still working to get BrokeAss running again, or at the very least BrokeAss the First (the broken laptop that proceeded BrokeAss), so in the mean time I’ll be using a friend’s computer. So, if you’ll bear with me, I’ll continue … Continue reading

Snakes: A safety lesson

It’s no secret that I love snakes. I take pride in the fact that I’ve been bitten by a venomous snake (though the story isn’t as exciting as it sounds). I spoil my Mary Magdalene so much, it’s amazing she’s not overweight. If I had my way, I’d have a warehouse full of reptiles, and … Continue reading
