Virginia Herpetological Society

Web Name: Virginia Herpetological Society






together people interested in advancing their knowledge of Virginia's reptiles and amphibians. The VHS encourages scientific study of Virginia herpetofauna and its conservation. Education continues to be an important society function. Society meetings are held twice each year, in spring and fall, at different locations throughout the state. The program is open to all members and guests and includes an educational workshop, a business meeting, and a contributed papers session during which members present information on their research and interest with Virginia's reptile and amphibians. The Fall Meeting Workshop trains members and educators on the identification, conservation, and captive care of common reptile and amphibian species, as well as those that are threatened and endangered. A two-day trip during the Spring meeting teaches members field sampling techniques and identification by professional herpetologists. The VHS publishes a bulletin, CATESBEIANA, twice each year that contains research, field notes, and other information on various aspects of herpetology submitted by its members. The society also produces a semi-annual newsletter to keep you informed on conservation, education, and upcoming events pertaining to the Commonwealth's reptiles and amphibians. We have a large diversity of salamanders consisting of 59 different species and subspecies. Virginia is home to 9 native lizard species and two introduced species, the Mediterranean Gecko and the Italian Wall Lizard. The Commonwealth is home to 34 species and subspecies of snake. Only 3 species are venomous. Virginia has 25 species and subspecies of turtle. Five of these species are sea turtle.
