On this website you will find field herping trip reports
along with photographs of herptiles and bugs such as arachnids plus
once in a while a bird or mammal. I hope you have use of the site and
visiting now and then!
What is fieldherping?
To look for and observe herptiles (amphibians and reptiles) in the wild.
I have seen people compare herping to birdwatching and in a sence that is true, however,
I like to try to observe behaviour if possible and not just count how many animals I can find.
Useful tools I bring is a good head lamp is a necessity for night time herping, a good snake hook and/or snake tong if you are in a area which have venomous snakes, camera equipment and a smaller backpack with water, food etc. I also carry Epipen (adrenaline auto injector). Plus a number of field guides, GPS and a compass.
