The Calusa Herpetological Society
Of Southwest Florida

Thursday, February 5, 20157:00 pm

SPEAKER & TOPIC   Daniel Parker of Sunshine Serpents ( will be speaking on his experiences in the scrub, sandhill, hammocks, and streams of Central Florida's sand ridges.  From sand swimming lizards and secretive burrowing frogs, to Florida's most tantalizing snakes, the ridges are home to a unique herpetofauna. This colorful presentation will include photos of many rare and notable species of this area including the eastern indigo snake, southern hognose snake, Florida pine snake, short-tailed snake, Florida gopher frog, Florida worm lizard, gopher tortoise, and sand skink. Come out and join the fun this Thursday night at 7 PM.


The herp of the month is the marbled salamander (Ambystoma opacum), a native Florida species. There will be a short 5 minute presentation on this species and a live example.
