More frogging with K-ris

I went frogging with K-ris again at his Mt Mee site. Lots of frogs again, and I managed to get some decent photos of a snake, unlike last time. Please note: this post contains images of road kill.

    Hi, I’m a 3rd year Zoology student at JCU Cairns currently doing a Herpetology intensive and wondered whether you would allow me use of the Carlia foliorum photo for a species account which is both assessable and will be included in the JCU herp register. I will of course reference the picture to you if I’m allowed use. Thanks for your time, Damian Rigg.

    Hi Damian,

    You’re more than welcome to use the photo. I’ve sent you an email with more details.
