Southwestern Herps

These are herps that I've seen in the western United States. The list below will take you to a web page for each species. There are presently 91 taxa photographed.

Regarding systematic and common names: I use only systematic names in the list below for several reasons. I'd rather not maintain duplicate lists for different naming systems, don't usually think about the critters in terms of their common names, and generally find common names unnecessarily confusing.
