You use various sources, ie: Wiki, Field Guides and various websites, here are some links to get you started.
https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Herpetology http://www.californiaherps.com/ http://www.michherp.org/miherps.html https://lsa.umich.edu/ummz/herps.html
For another way to find resources go to the specimens wiki page and use the links they had referenced to create the page.
You put down as much information as you feel you need/want, typically in the past I would have included: Name, Characteristics, Pictures, Size, Colors, Reproduction, Feeding habits, Name origin, "Fun facts", anatomical aspects, locations where its found and any relation to people whether its a threat, economic resource or threatened by people. Make sure you know the gist of the information rather then just copying and pasting wiki pages.
You should include every location they are present within the US not just to your state.
