  1. Welcome to JungleDragon, Travis! (may I call you Travis?)

    What a great first entry, I'll promote it to the homepage as a warm welcome to the community. One thing though: in this community it is very important to identify the species on photos. Therefore, if you know the species' name, you can go ahead and identify it. You can do so using the "Identify species" button.
