Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis?[edit]

You recently categorized File:Waterloo 666.jpg as Thamnophis sirtalis. Do you agree with my guess that it is Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis? I did not categorize it myself because it was just a guess, and I have no special knowledge of snakes, but if you think it is indeed the "Eastern Garter Snake" I will also update the description.

Agama lebretoni[edit]

Hello Goodshot,

Thank you for your determination of my reptile photos from Bioko. You have determined one of them as Agama lebretoni. This would be great, as the project currently has no photo of this species. But i admit, that I am a bit hesitating. I have considered this a while too, but after a discussion in the German Wikipedia it has been said, that no records of A. lebretoni are orange-headed. I hope you see my dilemma? I would appreciate your help in this, an explanation would be very nice. Regards, Denis Barthel (talk) 19:53, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Denis,
actually, I emailed Philipp Wagner (who described the species) about this, and here is his answer: "both should be A. lebretoni, one male in brilliant coloration the other one in a typical more subadult or dull coloration, but clearly not a female". I assumed that he knows his subject and this is why I categorized these pictures ;-). By the way, nice shots! Goodshort (talk) 21:51, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
