The Scorpion gecko (Pristurus carteri), or Carter’s rock gecko, is endemic to the southern Arabian Peninsula. It is ground dwelling and exclusively diurnal. This species remains under 4” long and is found in gravelly habitats with little or no vegetation. Pristurus means “saw tailed” in Latin and you can see how that name is appropriate when viewing the tail of this gecko. Photo © Matthijs Kuijpers

This is a very colorful, and young, Broad-banded water snake (Nerodia fasciata confluens). This snake occurs across much of the southeastern United States including the eastern third of Texas. Broadening of the head (demonstrated here) is a common defensive posture by banded water snakes when threatened to resemble a venomous snake such as a cottonmouth. Beautiful snake!
