Illinois Herpetologists

The following is a list of herpetologists currently living in Illinois (or very nearby). I have defined herpetologist to include anyone currently working in the field, anyone who has previously worked in the field and those who pursue herpetology outside of their primary wage earning position. If you would like to be listed here (or removed) email me at
