endless forms most beautiful

Hi, I'm Zach. My primary focus is herpetology (the study of reptiles and amphibians), but my interests span many topics relating to the natural and unnatural world.

Most of the material I post here is my own, unless otherwise stated.

Feel free to send any comments or questions my way!

Desert Box Turtle (Terrapene ornata luteola). I was really excited to see these box turtles, since I’ve only encountered Eastern Box Turtles (Terrapene carolina). It was amazing to see how these animals, that look fairly similar to their eastern counterparts, are adapted to living in such a different environment.
