Whether you’ve known the name for years or simply stumbled across our website in search of information, we here at FieldHerpers strive to uphold a level of loose professionalism. We are a community of people across the globe that have a common interest in Herpetology – the study of reptiles and amphibians in their natural environment. Information will be presented in a healthy, environmentally conscious manner to promote the beauty and fascination of these spectacular animals.
This website has been developed around the concept of community. The Forum provides a place for people to make announcements, ask questions, start discussions, offer feedback, and share knowledge. Members should consider their presence "constructive - not destructive". The Gallery displays user-contributed pictures. Most pages are editable by the public through the use of a Wiki interface. Visitors are encouraged to register on the Forum so they can introduce themselves and get started.
This website is intended for educational and entertainment purposes only. It makes no guarantees as to the accuracy, usefulness, or completeness of information. Handling techniques, as represented in pictures and/or text, should not be considered an adequate substitute for proper training and experience, nor should one assume these always represent "best practices".
If you choose to handle--or come into close proximity with--reptiles or amphibians you do so at your own risk.
