The Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas

Thank you for your interest in Vermont’s reptiles and amphibians!

What do we do?

The ultimate goal of the Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas is to gather and disseminate the data that are needed on the reptiles and amphibians of Vermont in a way that involves and informs Vermont individuals and organizations so that they can become more informed and effective stewards of wildlife habitat.

What are we looking for?

We’re still discovering what’s out there—and why. You can help: check out our lists of Most Wanted and Rarest species or Common Species that Need Documentation. Gaps in our knowledge of herptiles in Vermont could be filled by your observations.

Seen a Herp? Tell us!

Submit your observations and photos electronically. If you use iNaturalist, please also submit your reports to us; you will receive a personal response from us including answers to any of your questions regarding identification, natural history, and conservation of the species!

Seen a reptile or amphibian, but not sure what kind? If you send a photo, we can tell you what you saw. You can also check out our quick photo reference guide or visit each species individual page for more photos and details.

We would also like to both recognize and thank our financial supporters; without their contributions this important conservation work would not be possible. We also appreciate the Vermont Book Shop for making our posters more widely available.
