Re: Herpetology B/C

Also Wikipedia Is Wikipedia a super rel able resource though? *reliable It definitely is to a degree, wiki has a bad reputation but it has gotten a lot more reliable in the past couple years.

Re: Herpetology B/C

We are having a little trouble with fact sheets? Where can we find information? How much do we need? What websites should we use? Do they have to be only for our state for "where they are found" or all of the country? You use various sources, ie: Wiki, Field Guides and various websites, here are so...

Re: Herpetology B/C

Hello, I was wondering how much trivia we would need to know for each order and genus, or if it's even relevant at all. Thanks Last year some notable ones I saw over and over were state reptiles/amphibians, locations of interest (ie blind salamanders in Texas), venom facts, defense mechanisms and u...
