If you are concerned about the recently described chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal), which has been up to 100% lethal to infected salamanders in Europe, please read this current fact sheet issued by the Department of Defense. For the latest news on Bsal, please see salamanderfungus.org, or visit us on Twitter @salamanderfungi or on Facebook.


Granular Glass Frog, Cochranella granulosa is an amazingly beautiful species. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them. #Cochranellagranulosa #Centrolenidae #GlassFrog #CaptiveBred #CaptiveBreeding

A great time today at the Atlanta Science Festival Scientific Illustration Workshop

Image
I had a wonderful time talking about scientific illustration today. The illustration workshop was a lot of fun, and some great work was done by the audience from specimens (alcoholic and skeletal) ... We also brought in a few live critters to draw from. Kavarna is a wonderful place for scientific engagement. The Amphibian exhibition of illustrations will be open for one more week, so please stop by if you would like to see the impressive collection of illustrations, pottery and photography.






I am excited about the #ScientificIllustration workshop and presentation tomorrow ... Going to cover specimen prep and skeletal anatomy. Here is the dorsal view of the skull of a Mata Mata Turtle (#Chelus fimbriatus) to wet your whistle

A particularly creepy view of the Green Spiny Toad, #Incilius coniferus. A #SexuallyDimorphic species, the females (like the one pictured here) are larger and much greener. Thanks to @muchobirdnerd for reminding me how fascinating these are with his awesome post earlier today. It motivated me to see if I could find one on exhibit ... and I found her! All creepy looking. #CreepyToad #Bufonidae

#Ambystoma talpoideum, the Mole Salamander was one of the amazing species of #salamander covered in today's workshop 'Monitoring Atlanta's Amphibians' No A. talpoideum have been detected by our surveys thus far, but the species is (or was) predicted to occur here. I had a great time speaking with this passionate group about amphibians, and the importance of monitoring them. #Confluence2016 #Adopt-a-Stream
