This is the beginning of the Herpetology of Trinidad and Tobago web site and blog, its purposes are to advance knowledge of the T&T herpetofauna, educate the public, and promote an appreciation for the diverse nature of the fauna. Conservation of these unique animals and their habitats needs to be a priority. While many of the Trinidad and Tobago species have populations in mainland South America, many do not.
Please note that this is not a commercial web site, however we will advertise natural history books related to this site and the Eastern Caribbean. If you are an author and would like your book shown on this web site, contact us. There is no charge. We will also provide a list of businesses that service ecotourists. Trinidad and Tobago are excellent locations for observing many neotropical ecosystems, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Ecotourism can be a valuable tool for conservation.
