Of Southwest Florida

SPEAKER & TOPIC :     The Great Basin is a vast mountainous area of the western United States with no outlet to the oceans.  As a cold desert, most precipitation falls as snow and temperatures are highly variable.  Past climates and current topography continue to shape the herpetofauna of the region.  Visiting speaker Bryan Hamilton is coming from Nevada to discuss "Herpetology of the Great Basin - The Biogeography, Natural History and Ecology of its Reptile and Amphibians.  His main focus will be on rattlesnakes (Crotalus lutosus) and mountain kingsnakes (Lampropeltis pyromelana).

WHO'S INVITED ? You are! Anyone with an interest in any aspect of herpetology or herpetoculture is welcome to attend, learn, and exchange their experiences with our friendly membership. Come out to meet others who keep, breed or study reptiles and amphibians, and let them share their fascination with you. We average 30 70 people attending every meeting.

Cookies and cold soda, a nightly raffle of live herps, herp products, and books follow each speaker's talk, and lots of herp camaraderie, gossip, and fun can be counted upon at all meetings !
