Hey guys, here's some pictures from my trip to Guam and Japan this year.
I'm sorry about the quality of some of the pictures, I didn't have my camera with me all the time, so some of the pictures are taken with an IPhone.

Guam (the land of the invasive species)

And now for the pictures from Japan; I'm sorry about the quality, I was only out for a short walk in the area around my hotel, and i didn't bring my camera. But damn, I found so much in such a short time that I know for sure that I will be coming back next year!

Hyla japonica:

Pelophylax nigromaculatus

I wonder if that pig-loving lizard was catching flies attracted by the smelly mammal?

Ahh, look who's answering the bat phone. Kind of wondered what you've been up to. You always seem to make the coolest trips around the world and always post great photos.
Totally enjoyed this trip report. The pic with the penny is awesome! :D
