My qualifying exam was going to be today, but obviously it got postponed. So instead, AMA about toad tadpoles, how I raise them to tiny toadlets, and the influence they have on the ecosystem.

A snake a day keeps the stir crazy away (kinda)... Today I went on my daily stroll and spotted this gophersnake basking in the grass. It was an unexpected but very pleasant surprise given it’s tremendous size.

researchers/enthusiasts, I need help. If you have a tiny piece of anole shed skin, any species, would you consider donating it for a quarantine-friendly comparative study? 2020 cancelled, making lemonade from lemons.

American toad calls! And one disgruntled leopard frog. Missing my field season, I biked to a swamp today, and was rewarded with this chorus!

An absolutely absurd amount of spadefoot toad ! They stick together in dense schools for protection so we were dippin’ them up in huge numbers.

I'm so lucky to have these guys in the garden to keep me entertained right now! Always some wildlife adventures to be filmed on the doorstep. A calling Mediterranean Tree Frog disturbs a nearby Parsley .

Very proud of the my student, Kathleen C. Webster, for submitting her Master's thesis today! It's an impressive piece of work that is probably going to yield three separate papers. If anyone is looking for a skilled and enthusiastic PhD student, let me know!

My last dissertation chapter is now online in early view! We conducted a meta‐analysis of papers finding that temperature, dose, life stage, and taxonomy affect host mortality!

Sort of late to the party, but happy !! I’m an undergrad at University of Toronto studying Conservation biology! As a kid, I always wanted to become a paleontologist. Then I discovered herpetology, so now I’m here 🐢🐍🦎💚

It's happening people! Spring is coming! I hear the chirping cricket frogs in the creek and am getting excited about field season coming up again! Here's a grumpy little Carolina toad and mountain subspecies of Pseudotriton ruber!

Can anyone help me solve a dying tadpole problem? They appeared in a large inflatable pool and have been growing fine, but when they reach metamorphosis they are all dying. I put a plank for them to exit & water is turning green in the sun. What can I do!?

Trying to avoid others while enjoying the outdoors? can drop their tails to avoid/escape predators and often try coaxing predators (and researchers) to grab their tails by wriggling them like this!
