New picture guide to reptiles and amphibians of japan

I just picked up a copy of this book off ebay. This book is full of beautiful photos of the herpetofauna of Japan in a natural setting. Text is in Japanese but Latin names are given for all species. http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/hoosierherper_photos/Mobile%20Uploads/20181116_094525_zpsb7nk...

Re: NAFHA National Meeting, 2014

I'm planning on being in Arizona during this time. I do hope to be able to tag along for at least one day.
This will be my first NAFHA meeting.
Is there an official sign up sheet?
Are there any fees for attending?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Brazilian herp books

I ordered them December 27 they arrived from USPS January 15.
I will order from them again. They have great customer service. Just email your list to them they will let you know how much shipping is then they will send you a paypal invoice which converts the cost to US dollars.

Neither of the two guides cover Texas. But if the species is found in a neighboring such as New Mexico then its whole range is shown on the range map.

You found a milk and a Mississippi green on your first trip. That's awesome! I have been there dozens of times over the years and I still have not seen either of those species on the road. The allure of the Mississippi green, the red milk and the western mud draw me back year after year.
