Question What is your favorite herp?

This is an easy discussion for anyone to take part in. I would like to know what is your favorite herp? Why it is your favorite? And include your favorite picture of the species if possible.

My all time favorite is the Green Anaconda. (Eunectes murinus) I have been captivated by the anaconda since I was a small child. The anaconda is the last true serpentine man eater. It is credited with lengths of 30 feet and weights of 500 pounds, but there are unproven but documented accounts of specimens of 43 feet and 1000 pounds. The anaconda is worshiped as a god in South America and the basis of amazing folk lure, songs, stories, and art. The Sucuriju Gigante, basically a South American reptile version of big foot is claimed to be over 100 feet long. Many have claimed to have seen it and one very questionable picture exists. But regardless of the legend, the true anaconda is by all means a creature to be admired.
