Herp Room / Herpetology
All students of BIOL317 Herpetology manage a live collection of reptiles housed in a laboratory known as "The Herp Room". The collection consists only of North American species with an emphasis on the East Coast. Represented snakes include rat snakes, corn snakes, water snakes, milk snakes, and bullsnakes. Turtles included spotted turtles, wood turtles, box turtles, map turtles, mud turtles, musk turtles, and snapping turtles. The college also has a snake breeding facility housed in a separate building.
