Well since we've been posting reptile pics here for more than a year and it seems to be the unofficial reptile thread, maybe we should rename the thread's original title so this is the Official Reptile Thread! Doesn't seem worth starting a new one since so many great pics are already posted here.

Since the thread's been lying quiet a while, and I'm trying to catch up my wildlife postings on these boards, here are more reptiles (and possibly amphibians) to share from the Florida wetlands.

Great set Zack, I think the baby gater on the back of it’s parent is a one in a million shot.


Cheers
