These pages contain information on each of the taxa listed on the Herpetology identification list.

The 2019 list can be found in the manual this year.

In addition to the national specimens, your state may have a herpetology list as well, it should be on your states website.

Each group's entry looks something like this:

Herpetology Entry Template

Specimen Name

  • AKA=(alternate names)
  • DESCR=(physical appearance)
  • LC=(life cycle)
  • ECO=(ecology)
  • BEHAVIOR=(behavior)
  • CONSERV=(conservation status/efforts)
  • DISTR=(distribution)
  • ETY=(etymology)
  • MISC=(miscellaneous)

It is also good to have vocabulary or anatomy pages for quick reference.

It is also recommended for you to summarize wherever you can (as it makes things to find easier) and for you to actually type your own notes so you know where everything is. Success in Herpetology also deals with the speed, as sometimes stations can last less than a minute.
