Welcome to the Idaho Herps Wiki


This is a website created by the students of Biology 489, Herpetology, at the University of Idaho and students of Herpetology (SCI 452) at New Saint Andrews College.


On this page, we will create a fully-editable database of all herps (reptiles and amphibians) in the state of Idaho. Click on a species below to access and edit the species page. If you aren't in the class but want to help with this wiki, please send me an email at lukeh@uidaho.edu and I'll send you the password.
