On this page, you will (hopefully) learn a bit more about herpetofauna (amphibians and reptiles). They tend to be considered less “charismatic” or “cute”, but give them a chance… they are fascinating! And, as my fellow PhD student and herp aficionados K. M. always says… who doesn’t love an underdog? So yes, this project mainly focuses on herpetofauna (reptiles and amphibians – check here why), but we also get visits from mammals, birds and arthropods under our lens!
Under permanent ‘construction’, this page will provide some information regarding the importance of herpetofauna for ecosystems, some interesting facts about them, some details about each species found “captured” (on camera!) during the project, and even quizzes to test your knowledge – and impress everyone at your next Trivia night 🥳
If you have other interesting facts that you think should be added, get in touch, we would love to hear about them 😃
