Well techanically everyone who cares for there reptiles and know enough about them is a herpetologist in there own way or atleast thats my opinion. Not alot of people can say they are exactly a herpetologist by college terms or anything. Alot of people here do work at facilities,zoos, or breed there own large collection. Myself volenteers at the houston zoo and have been to brazil herping with friends. Are you intrested in talking to someone like bryan fry or donald scultz [sorry if name spelled wrong] than i suggest looking at major reptile websites for live appearances or attend a reptile show.

Ive never liked donald schultz though. Ive met him and heard him talk to my friend in a show. Kinda reminded me of a kid or something but i guess i would to if i had his job. He is pretty bad with scientific names well atleast with spiders. John told me he messed up alot naming the spiders at his booth.

He also overreacts alot too. Your best bet to talk to someone is Dr. Fry. My idle and he is younger than me. welll only by a couple of years any way. He KNOWS his stuff. Talked to him a couple times actually and even more on online chats via internet. Go to kingsnake and wait for events for online chat with a herpetologist

Herpetoculturists maybe but the term ’herpetologist’ actually is a college/university attainable major.
