Field Herping
© Eric Roscoe 2021 Last Update May 2021
Field herping is the process of searching for, studying, and photographing reptiles and amphibians in their natural habitats. Anyone who enjoys finding these animals can be considered a "field herper", ranging from amataurs to seasoned field herping veterans, biologists, academia, and other professional researchers. Shown below is my gallery of my best field herping photography taken over the years, that will continuously be updated as I take new photos and find new species I have not previously encountered (which are referred to as "lifers"). Enjoy!
