What is a Herper and how can you become a Herper?[edit]

Reptiles (lizards, snakes, and turtles) and Amphibians (salamanders, toads, and frogs) are called herps, which means “crawling things.” If you really like herps and like to watch and learn about them, you are a herper. If you go to college and study herps, you can become a herpetologist and teach, or work in a museum or a zoo.

Learn about lizards in your area.[edit]

Learn how to care for a lizard.[edit]

  • If keeping the lizard for a short time, use a plastic see-through jar with air holes.
  • If you keep the lizard for more than a few hours you must:
  • Know what type of lizard it is and how to care for it.
  • Provide a larger container, water, and food.
  • Place newspaper or sand in the bottom of the container to keep it dry.

Catch a lizard or see them in a pet store, on a video, at a nature center, zoo or books. Invite herpetologist or knowledgeable guest to talk to Adventurers.[edit]

Read Leviticus 11:29-30.[edit]
