  • To end our best trip so far this year, we decided to go try and find my favorite Colorado snakes. This Massasauga was 1 of 5 sitting out on the road just before sunset. I was stoked to be able to get the photo opportunity with these incredible little snakes. -

  • In honor of #WorldTurtleDay, we figured we would share a few of these little guys that we were fortunate enough to help rescue. These Painted Turtles we’re trapped in an accidentally created riparian ecosystem within a dam spillway near Denver. The construction agency was kind enough to halt their work in redoing the spillway long enough for us to save 54 turtles over the course of 3 days. They were relocated to a reservoir less than a mile away and are getting a second chance at life. #Turtles #PaintedTurtle #Chrysemys #ChrysemysPicta #Painted #Turtle #ColoradoWildlife #Wildlife #Colorado #Photography #Spring #SpringWildlife #ColoradoPhotography #Herping #ColoradoHerping #SaveTheTurtles #ILikeTurtles #StateReptile #ConservationThroughEducation #RespectAndProtect #worldturtleday2013

  • Headed back to the parking lot from bed fishing I came across a beautiful 5-6ft bullsnake, turned on the GoPro and caught em! My video explains the difference between bull's and Rattlers, I see too many bullsnakes injured by scared humans! A very misunderstood species! They chose to flee unless cornered n can't run.. if you are scared.. don't kill it, it'll avoid you if you avoid them, they'd rather musk than bite, no fangs nor venom so it wouldn't be too bad of a bite, maybe ridge marks or a tiny mouth marks on your skin.. please bank anglers try to avoid killing a species that has so much to do with rodent and pest population control, it's all part of a balanced ecosystem! #bullsnakes #snakes #snakesofinstagram #bullsnakesofinstagram #coloradosnakes #herping #coloradoherping #coloradosnakes #coloradooutdoors #colubridsofinstagram #colubrids #harmlesssnake #dontkillwhatyoudontknow #endsnakestigma #snakestigma #snakeeducation #misunderstoodcreatures #misunderstoodsnakes

  • Speckled Kingsnake from Colorado! This is the ultimate prize for herping southeastern Colorado and we were lucky enough to find one this past weekend. These are arguably the second rarest species in the state, and it’s only the 3rd I have found (Sean’s 2nd). The yellow on this snake was stunning and better than any on the others I have seen.

  • Probably the prettiest milk I've seen recently. This was a super young guy, so his great genes really popped. I would have to say, I've never seen a gentilis that comes close to our Colorado ones🤔

  • Thinking about going herping with my wife for my YouTube channel, it's still too cold here in Colorado, but I will be planning my adventure soon! Won't be long before the reptiles and amphibians are out to breed and eat! Here's me holding a rattlesnake on a herping adventure w/ my wife @lazy_lizard_lady and brother  @steve.herrera.754 ! I  hope to get some great footage of some rattlesnakes attacking the camera this year with my GoPro stick, also check burrows and all sorts of fun!!

  • Colorado Lifer Chihuahuan Night Snake from about two years back! This juvenile was a broken white-whale curse for me. We flipped it in late April at a nice spot that now, sadly, gets wrecked by careless herpers each year before that good flipping time. -

  • This is it! 2020’s major goal: New Mexico Thread Snakes in Colorado with the boys (Sean, @im_th and @ryanurbanek )
This individual was one of many found on an incredible day in SW Kansas a few years back! These elusive snakes have finally showed up again after an absence of sightings for quite sometime, and we are ready to try and build on that. -

  • Less than a month out until Southeastern Colorado is producing more of these beautiful snakes! Longnose Snakes (like the young individual pictured here), Threads Snakes, and Speckled Kingsnakes will be some of the big targets for this coming spring. Flipping the spring in Colorado can beat you down, but when produces things like this it’s always exciting!

  • Was walking around today and stumbled upon something I really did not think I would find. Here is a northern leopard frog that I stumbled upon near a pool of water in a densely wooded area. He was a large specimen just smaller than my palm. These frogs are native, but are hard to find since other species like bullfrogs compete for habitat and even prey upon these smaller and beautiful frogs! Last time I found one in the wild, I was very young. This is one of two leopard frog species in Colorado, the other being the plains leopard frog! Truly stupendous!🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸 #eyetoeye #creature_komfort #whattabeaut #herpaderp #herpetology #northernleopardfrog #colorado #summercoming #amphibian #coloradonative #getoutside #fightcoronawithnature #neature #leopardfrog #coloradoherping #herpetology303 #godbless #loveall #staymindful

  • These aren’t supposed to be the best photos of the animals, but during den season in-situ photos mean 100% more to me. These photos are from 2018 since I didn’t make it to them last year, but I love seeing how these rattlesnakes and bull snakes naturally set up while they’re their most vulnerable. -

  • Had a chance to get out last night and shine some new Prairie Dog holes during a big rain and managed to turn up one of these guys! Tiger Salamanders can be cryptic animals, but during the right times of year they’re easily found. Took a few IPhone shots and moved on, only to shine one mouse the rest of the night (an interesting observation). -

  • Some of my adventures herping in Colorado! Fishing ain't my only hobby and I will be filming lots of herping adventures this summer along with fishing for my YouTube AMPUTEE FISHING is the name,  follow and subscribe and you won't be let down this summer! I love wildlife, I'm holding a few prairie rattlesnakes, one I'm dropping the rattlesnake before it almost struck me! We do this without any Anti-Venom  Amphibians, invertebrates, insects, rattlesnakes, ornate box turtles etc. #herping #coloradoherping #wildlife #notfishing #livedangerously #noantivenom #rattlesnakes #amphobians #greensnake #stickbug #tigersalamander #reptiles #colorado #wildanimals #youtuber #amputee #angler #amputeefishing

  • So apparently I don’t give enough love to turtles on this page, even though Colorado only has 6 native species. Here’s most peoples Colorado favorite, a male Ornate Box Turtle. The males are easily distinguishable when their eyes are this bright of red. -

  • Plains Leopard Frogs are one of the neatest and most photogenic amphibians in Colorado. This photo was taken in 2015 at a spot they were plentiful, but now, sadly, yields at most 1-2 individuals a trip. This species is in real trouble from invading Bullfrogs and droughts.

  • Smetlogik. Rob & Nick. Colorado has lost two of it’s finest to the promise land of Arizona herping. These two individuals are who I grew up idolizing. They are the reason I got into herping, as their YouTube videos inspired my 10 year old self to reach out to the herp community. You guys are two of the most incredible, energetic, passionate, and overall great people Sean and I have ever had the pleasure to meet and get into the field with. We can not thank you enough for your incredible contributions to the Colorado herp community and being one of the few positive faces left in the social media age of herping. While it only took some of us once to find our Vine Snake, you have unlimited attempts now ;) God has truly blessed us with meeting you guys, and we can’t wait to catch up with you again soon enough. Enjoy some photos of us hanging out over the years (Thanks to Kevin for most of these images). #Herping #ColoradoHerping #HerpingYouTube #YouTube #Smetlogik #GOAT #TheColoradoSnakeHunters #Arizona #Colorado #ArizonaHerping #COPARC #HerpersHerping #OldTimes #Memories #Conservation #ReptileConservation #SnakeConservation

  • Western Coachwhips are some of the most photogenic snakes out there. I snapped this with my IPhone back in August after chasing this guy around for a while. They are the fastest snake in Colorado and can be incredibly tricky to get your hands on before they are gone.

  • So I will start by taking full credit for bringing this beast into the herping and conservation community (so give him a follow!). Luckily he hasn’t screwed up anything too badly yet! Happy Birthday to Mr. Ryan Borgmann (@no_coast_photography). You’re one of the greatest people Sean and I have ever gotten to herp with and we are happy to call you a friend. One of the most talented photographers I’ve ever seen, always so happy and optimistic, and one of the most fun, reliable guys out there. Thank you for all you do to help make the herp community a more positive place! I look forward to getting out in the field with you more, even though you don’t find any of the snakes... 😅😂 (swipe for some memory gems!) #Herping #Colorado #ColoradoWildlife #Wildlife #Snakes #BirthdayPost #ColoradoSnakes #Coachwhip #Hiking #Canon #ColoradoHerping #Canon #HerpingColorado #Photography #NoCoastPhotography #NoCoast #thecoloradosnakehunters

Happy Birthday to Mr. Ryan Borgmann (@no_coast_photography). You’re one of the greatest people Sean and I have ever gotten to herp with and we are happy to call you a friend. One of the most talented photographers I’ve ever seen, always so happy and optimistic, and one of the most fun, reliable guys out there. Thank you for all you do to help make the herp community a more positive place!

  • Here's a pretty green prairie rattlesnake (crotalus viridis) from a fun morning with @specksnleps in Colorado a few months ago. I heard the snakes up there aren't moving around like they were at that time ❄️

  • I am super excited to officially announce and welcome the 6th species of turtle to the state of Colorado! It’s been a long time coming to get the Smooth Softshell (Apalone mutica) State Record sorted out, but the end result is still incredible. Two individuals are officially documented for the state record, one found by myself (with Rob and Nick Kruetzer and Anthony Berardi) in the Purgatorie River and another by Lauren Livo in the Arkansas (both Otero County). Since the initial records, now published in Herp Review Issue 50.3, I have documented an additional observation with two other known sightings taking place. Thank you to Lauren Livo for helping with the record and writing up this publication, as well as the other COPARC members noted for their contributions. I’m excited to see what’s next and it’s time to add some more observations for this species! #StateRecord #ColoradoHerping #Herping #Colorado #Turtles #SmoothSoftshellTurtle #SmoothSoftshell #ColoradoWildlife #ColoradoParksandWildlife #ColoradoPARC #PARC #COPARC #Conservation #SaveTheTurtles #Apalone #ApaloneMutica #ColoradoTurtles #Reptiles #Photography #TheColoradoSnakeHunters

  • Happy Birthday to the one and only Thomas! Thomas started herping with Sean & I only two months ago but has already become part of the crew. One of the greatest and most fun guys I’ve ever had the privilege to get out in the field with. Both Thomas and I are in the Natural Resources College at CSU, so this is just the beginning of many incredible adventures we will have, so watch for this up and coming birder-turned-herper. Excited to see what 20 has in store for you @im_th 👌🏼 #Herping #Colorado #ColoradoHerping #Wildlife #ColoradoWildlife #Snakes #Birding #GarterSnake #ThamnophisSirtalis #NightSnake #DogRescuer #PrayingMantis #WaterSnake #Reptiles #NorthernWaterSnake #RacerAt6AM #TheColoradoSnakeHunters

  • Nothing much, just a little pile of prairie rattlesnakes, most likely all gravid females getting together in to catch some rays!  How many snakes can you spot? All snakes were left undisturbed to ensure they can continue cooking up their babies in peace!  With @specksnleps

  • Prairie rattlesnake (crotalus viridis) as found the other day. Thanks to @specksnleps I got to see quite a few of these guys doing their thing, but this snake was definitely the pick of the bunch

  • To end our best trip so far this year, we decided to go try and find my favorite Colorado snakes. This Massasauga was 1 of 5 sitting out on the road just before sunset. I was stoked to be able to get the photo opportunity with these incredible little snakes. -

  • Swipe right for some of our finds of the day. We managed to find 10 live Desert Massassaugas, 4 live Prairie Rattlesnakes, and 1 live Yellow-bellied Racer. Massassaugas are rare in most parts of Colorado, but once you get into their strong-hold range, they can be incredibly common. These snakes have officially taken over as my favorite snake species of all time (yes even beating out Kingsnakes for now)... #Massassauga #DesertMassassauga #Sistrurus #SistrurusTergeminus #Rattlesnake #PygmyRattlesnake #Snakes #Herping #ColoradoHerping #October #Colorado #ColoradoSnakes #KeepCalmAndHerpOn #Conservation #YouTube #ColoradoSnakeHunters

  • Lesser Earless Lizards (Holbrookia maculata) in Colorado are among most adorable lizards in U.S. They’re speedy, have funny faces, and super curious. Going to try and give these lizards some more of their deserved love.

  • Plains Leopard Frogs are one of the neatest and most photogenic amphibians in Colorado. This photo was taken in 2015 at a spot they were plentiful, but now, sadly, yields at most 1-2 individuals a trip. This species is in real trouble from invading Bullfrogs and droughts.
