    Awesome. Just think of how many undiscovered species, of anything let alone herps, are still yet to be seen...and that's speaking solely of species on earth. I'm pretty comfortable with mortality, but it kills me (no pun intended) not knowing what I'll miss when I'm gone.

    I was just reading about this. They are calling it Matilda!

    It is a gorgeous snake. I think it is very sad that they have to hide its location. I understand wanting pretty herp, but and endangered one? People annoy me at times.

    It's sad that we sometimes don't discover a species until it is almost too late.... At least it says they have a small breeding colony established, so there is hope for the preservation of the species.

    Therefore seeing we have this ministry, even as we obtained mercy, we faint not: but we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by the manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. /2 Corinthians 4 1-2 (ASV)
