Herpetology Collection

Welcome to the herpetology collection at the Sam Houston State Vertebrate Museum.  I am currently cataloging our collection and hope to have most of the collection on-line by the end of August 2000.  We are in the process of moving the collection and renovating  the space that currently houses the amphibian and reptile collection.

Below are publications for specimens recently deposited in the museum.  Please visit again.  Changes and updates are soon coming.
