    Thank you

    Yes I did, the first two monkey shots (Rhesus Macaques) were taken in Hong Kong, the second two monkey shots (Long-tailed Macaques) were taken in Cambodia.

    Then it's a Cuban Curley-tailed Lizard, Then Borneo reptiles; Common Sun Skink, Juvenile Wagler's Pit Viper, and Finally a Green Crested Lizard!

    Photography's one of my main hobbies ^_^ I recently upgraded my camera this year while in Japan (got a good deal on it!). It's a Canon 5D mk IV. For my animal shots I mainly use a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS lens with 2x II Extender or a Canon 85mm f/1.2 L II Lens. My main job though is stacking shelves lol, this is where all of my money goes!

    I thought your main job is some sort of zoologist after reading your amazing posts about snake behaviors.

    I have been saying for some time that I need to start sending off my CV, my main goal is to work in-situ in wildlife conservation (working with reptiles would be perfect!), but I have anxiety disorder which has been holding me back a bit. I've got a BSc (Hons) in Zoo Biology (I was inspired to study animals after my sister came home with a snake one day - JD the corn snake ignited my passion), but since graduating I've explored the idea of using my photography as a career but finding it too stressful so I've got to get that dream conservation career started.

    You just got me thinking about something. If Australia was still connected to Pangaea like it was eons ago, how much of Asia, would there be a lot of kangaroos, wombats, koalas, etc. in southeast Asia?

    Marsupials are the dominant mammalian group in Australia because of their isolation. Isolated landmasses such as islands often harbour the most unique species because of the lack of competition and consequently increased opportunity for a species to take advantage of different environmental niches and diversify. Early marsupials did not face the same competition with placental mammals for resources or environmental niches in Australia as in areas where placental mammals are more abundant so consequently diversified into the many marsupial forms we see today. If Australia remained apart of a bigger land mass it’s unlikely the same set of circumstances would nurture the development of the modern marsupials we see in Australia today, ultimately we wouldn’t have kangaroos or koalas today, and probably very few marsupials to speak of. Mammals were still quite primitive during the time of Pangaea and there were not yet any true marsupials, they may never have evolved if they were not isolated the way they were due to continental drift, we would instead see the rise of other species that we do not see today.

    The coyote and her pups are so cute. Do you like coyotes or wolves better?
