Welcome to the Maine Herpetological Society

We welcome you to join us and meet people who have an interest in Reptiles and Amphibians. Now more than ever it is important for people with an interest in keeping and breeding Reptiles and Amphibians to come together and protect their right to do so.

Also, by being a member of the MHS you will be among people who share the same interests and have in-depth knowledge in the care and breeding of herps of all kinds. Come to our monthly meetings, where you can enjoy guest speakers discussing a variety of interesting topics. Some recent topics have been:
  • How to build your own Terrarium
  • Herp trips to the Central American Rain Forest
  • The tagging program for Maine's indigenous endangered species of Reptiles and Amphibians
