* Click on thumbnails for a larger view

The Florida Museum of Natural History's Online Guide to FL Snakes and Online Guide to FL Venomous Snakes are completed and online. We are currently working on other online fieldguides to Florida's established amphibian and reptile fauna. When complete, they will allow the user to identify all of these animals, provide color photographs and line drawings of each species, and remark on their geographic distribution, ecology and behavior.

Below we provide a checklist of the established amphibians and reptiles known to occur in Florida, organized by currently accepted scientific name. For both scientific and common names we mostly follow: Crother, B.I. (ed.). 2008. Scientific and Standard English Names of Amphibians and Reptiles of North America North of Mexico, pp. 184. SSAR Herpetological Circular 37. We also include many historical and local names to the common names list.
