|Corrections - April 2012|
The identification of the animals and plants found in this website is mostly based on the photographs alone, which is usually sufficient to determine the species with certainty. In a few cases, however, details such as scale counts in reptiles are necessary to verify an identification, and such details are not always clearly visible in photographs. An experienced field biologist, though, may be able to verify the identification just by looking at the photo. For this reason, we frequently consult experts to have our identifications verified.|
Thanks to André Koch, Germany, for correcting the identification of Varanus doreanus and Varanus juxtindicus.
Varanus doreanus (previously misidentified as Varanus jobiensis)
Varanus juxtindicus (previously misidentified as Varanus indicus)
We apologize for any inconvenience that these misidentifications might have caused.
