YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS LIZARD BEFORE! | The rarest lizard in the world! (New Caledonia, 2018)

Phoboscincus bocourti is otherwise known as the TERROR SKINK, and it really lives up to its name! It's a meat eater and fills the same niche as the T-Rex did in his day. This critically endangered lizard is endemic to Province Sud, New Caledonia, and was thought to be extinct until 2002. It is quite possibly the rarest lizard in the world, and we tour the island it is known to exist on in a frantic search to find it within the time we have there. The path is riddled with obstacles, sharp thorns, and pitfalls that drop to 50 feet or more. It’s not an easy search, but we are determined to find, and document it in the wild. It’s like searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack, but six months of research have prepped us for the task ahead. Phoboscincus bocourti is so rare that only five known living specimens have ever been seen in the wild. First one was the original lizard in 1897 (deseased), Second was sighted by Aaron Bauer (living), Third was sighted by Euan Edwards in 1993 (living), Fourth was found in the surf by Philippe de Vosjoli (deseased), Fifth was photographed by Julie Halatas (living), Sixth was Ivan Inesh who wrote the paper reintroducing them to science (living), And the Seventh was found by us, making it the fifth known living specimen ever found, and marks the first time it was ever filmed in 4K in the wild!

FINDING THE BIGGEST RATTLESNAKE IN THE WORLD! (Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, Crotalus adamanteus)

FINDING THE BIGGEST RATTLESNAKE IN THE WORLD! (Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, Crotalus adamanteus)

FINDING THE BIGGEST RATTLESNAKE IN THE WORLD! (Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, Crotalus adamanteus) You all know Florida was a lot of snakes, and big ones too! While I was down there filming some episodes, I took a few days and traveled all over the peninsular from one coast to another to try and a find the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, the biggest rattlesnake species in the world! This once common, now increasingly rare rattlesnake had me putting in the time, and effort, and in the end, how we found it was just plain incredible! This isn't the biggest specimen ever found, but a member of the biggest rattlesnake species in the world! Come and join my Florida herping adventure, and learn about some of the other reptiles found in Florida as well! ABOUT THE EASTERN DIAMONDBACK RATTLESNAKE The Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake Crotalus adamanteus is the largest rattlesnake species and is the heaviest known type of venomous snake, with one specimen shot in 1946 measuring 7.8 ft (2.4 m) in length and weighing 15.4 kg (34 lb). However, other venomous snakes may rival this species in weight, the much longer but more slender king cobra is probably greater in average body mass if not maximum weight and the shorter but even bulkier gaboon viper could (but is not verified to) exceed the rattlesnake in both mean adult body mass and possibly even maximum body mass. Common names include eastern diamondback rattlesnake, eastern diamond-backed rattlesnake, eastern diamondback, diamond rattlesnake, diamond-back rattlesnake, common rattlesnake, diamond-back, diamond(-patch) rattler, eastern diamond-back (rattlesnake), eastern diamond rattlesnake, Florida diamond-back (rattlesnake), Florida rattlesnake, lozenge-spotted rattlesnake, rattler, rattlesnake, southeastern diamond-backed rattlesnake, southeastern diamond-backed rattler, southern woodland rattler, water rattle, water rattlesnake, and diamondback rattlesnake. C. adamanteus is found in the southeastern United States from southeastern North Carolina, south along the coastal plain through peninsular Florida to the Florida Keys, and west along the Gulf Coast through southern Alabama and Mississippi to southeastern Louisiana.
