<%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%> Welcome to the Herp Interpreters Web Site

What does the word "herp" mean?...

  • Fairly new word.
  • Turtles, amphibians (frogs and salamanders), snakes, lizards and crocodilians.
  • From the Greek word "herpeton" which means "creeping animals" - basis of the word "herpetology" which means the study of reptiles and amphibians.
  • Herpetoculture is the keeping and husbandry of herps... a practice which has gained popularity in recent decades.
