I just finished catching up and editing my life lists and though I would show off the herp list here. I would be interested in seeing others lists and how they keep them as well.

First, here are my parameters: On my herp list, I list subspecies as well as species, including anything that has ever been described as a species or subspecies, e.g. Kelly Island Salamander Ambystoma nothagenes, these are indicated with an asterisk.

If I'm field herping in a group, I will count species that others find as long as I'm within shouting distance. I do not count species others find while road hunting in a separate vehicle than me.

Per ABA rules, I do count species identified by their calls but not seen.

While I do not consider DORs to be lifers, or include them in my totals, I do list individuals I've never seen alive before in a separate section at the end of the list.

Of course, life listing is purely for the satisfaction of the individual keeping the list, and therefor I feel everyone should be entitled to their own rules and parameters.

Other lists I keep include: mammals, freshwater fishes, crayfish, and, of course, birds. Maybe I'll post some of these on the other appropriate forums.

Very, very cool. You definitely have a solid list going. I have always contemplated making a life list but it seems daunting to try and remember every species I have seen thus far :x

Diamondback Watersnake (Nerodia rhombifer) - for years I thought it was Cottonmouths I had seen, but given locale (Kansas) I've been assured they were Nerodia. Not sure if it should count until I make a positive ID in the field.

I think that's it. But I may remember more.

I keep mine stored in word docs, plus hard copies in a binder. It's fun to pull out and look though from time to time. Also, I should point out that I stole the format I use from Pingleton years ago.

I think I'm at about 525 sp and ssp for the United States (list is at my office).

I'm reasonably happy with that amount, but it pales in comparison with the great Dick Bartlett. Last year he gave me a short list of the 13 U.S. taxa that he HAD NOT seen!

Chrish and Jeff,

What kind of lifestyles or jobs allow you to put together such impressive lists? Seeing new species and habitats is (almost) all I care about and I would love to compile lists like yours.

intermedius, some very impressive species there.

It sounds as though I did things similar to your bald eagle work -- temporary things all over (Montana, Arizona, California) plus lived in California and made occasional trips as far as Texas. Now I've been in Louisiana for 20 years working as a herpetologist. I saw lifelist critter #1 in 1964, so I've been at it longer than most. I also had the benefit of looking when there was more undeveloped land and better populations of things. However, one rarely encountered another herpetologist, so few were around to offer sites and techniques.

I just checked and see that I'm at 556 for the United States.

Did you, by chance, do a turtle survey for Big Oak Tree SP in MO?

Wasn't me, but maybe Jeff Briggler, the MO state herpetologist.

With just a little research I figured it out. It was Brad 'Bones' Glorioso, from Louisiana. I had worked there in the past, and knew a herp fellow from Louisiana did our turtle survey. When you said you were from there, I figured that maybe...

intermedius, some very impressive species there.

Simple...Academia. And I travel whenever and where ever I get the chance. I've been lucky as my family members have lived in other countries so going to visit family often meant going to Indonesia or meeting them somewhere like Fiji.

And I travel where ever I can in between. As long as there is a reasonable chance I won't be beheaded, I'll go there.

Actually, if I had herped more in my travels, my list would be 2-3 times that long. And then there were all those years in Indonesia where I didn't know what 90% of the stuff I saw was....and I still don't know a lot of it. My bird list is a lot longer because they make bird books to just about anywhere. No such luck on herp books. :(

If by intermedius you mean Crotalus intermedius, it was a pretty crappy sighting. I was herping with some Mexican grad students (summer job while in college ;) ) and one of them flipped a rock and said, "Look, it's Crotalus intermedius". I ran over (having never heard of intermedius or most Mexican crotes at that time) and said "cool" as I watched it crawl into a crevice and be gone. But I can say I've seen it!

Hey Chris,

Thank you for the reply, I would say you're a lucky guy, but clearly you've worked for what you've seen. And, if your photography is any indication, you're dedicated to your passions.

I was referring to the forum poster "intermedius" that posted above. I enjoyed your Crotalus intermedius story, just the same.

Incredible lists guys! Simply dwarfs my ~270 species (~160 US, ~110 Panama, plus a few others from random areas). It definitely gives me something to shoot for though.

Great lists guys. Love some of those numbers ! Ive always wondered why herpers do not seem to talk a lot about there life lists. My number is small (87) but I believe the secret is traveling, and that is something that I have only recently started to do.

Now that's pretty cool. I would love to have photos of all the herps I've seen, or even a small proportion thereof.

Oops.. :oops: but isn't that his/her wishlist?

My wishlist would probably start with a wild Lanthonotus borneensis.

Great initiative! I got inspired to start my own list and recollect all the wonderful adventures involved in finding herps. In contrast to bird watchers' life lists, ours usually involve a lot more effort and (mis)adventures (irrespective of the impressions given by the movie "the big year"). I keep a herp journal but do not always diligently enter my observations but in combination with my photographs I hope to construct a list.

OK, here's an improved version of my lifelist. Why improved? Because this is my lifelist of records entered into the NaHerp database! The taxonomic names are followed by the number of records that I entered for that taxon.

Anyone with records in the database can generate their NAHerp lifelist just as easily by going to the link that Don provided on the NAFHA forum.

(Thanks Don for adding this awesome feature!)

Taxon Count
Dermophis mexicanus 1

Taxon Count
Alligator mississippiensis 12
Crocodylus acutus 3
Crocodylus moreletii 6

Frogs and Toads
Taxon Count
Acris crepitans 58

WoW guys! I think I need to get out more. Cravens, you really don't believe in subspecies do ya!! LoL! Those are some really impressive lists. Most of my finds have come from two locations - the Sonoran Desert and the Tennessee Valley region, and some Coastal Carolina stuff, but not anything in numbers to what some of you guys have found. Impressive.

RocK ON!

Subspecies just give me more to look for. I have my opinions about them, but they're just opinions seeing how there's no real black and white answer in all cases anyways, just grey area. They are fun though, just look at all the L. triangulum we get to go looking for.


bishopi took some time, mostly because there was no current information available to me and I spent A LOT of time looking where populations once occurred but appear to extirpated now. I'm glad I listed that one before the heat was really turned on with federal listing. I would think twice about searching for them now.

The dusty hognose in Missouri is the one I'm most proud of. It took a lot of research and searching for suitable habitat. In the end, the habitat I found, with the snake, was purchased by MDC and preserved as a conservation area.

Thanks for the comments,

Michael Cravens

i'm getting a laugh at what seems to be a bit of a "mine is longer than yours" competition, but seriously, nice work to all of you.

Here's my US list I have a bunch of stuff from Mexico and Belize as well but I don't have it prepared. Sorry about the spacing. Copy/pasted from elsewhere and I'm too lazy to delete all the spaces! This is mostly based on the CNAH list but not the most recent version. I need to update it to match modern taxonomy but that is a project for a rainy day. -Mike

I like those statistics (and the numbers too). I'll have to check where I stand with that.

I've been keeping a list on the web for years, and I've probably made it more detailed than is sensible:

Mike, closing in on 500

Of the ~ 9000 species of reptiles, I've seen around 400 species for a grand total of.....(drum roll)....4.4%
For amphibians, it is worse. I've seen around 140 of the ~6700 species for a total of ......2.1%

(The sad thing is that I have seen 1897 of the 10000 species of birds, which is 18%. I suck at herping, clearly).

I'm in the same boat, and the worst part is, I have a limited amount of cash, and only a couple good decades left :cry:

Good job on the birds. A herp in the hand is worth ten birds in a bush, methinks.

What do those number correspond to? Looking at the CNAH list I can come up with 629 native herp species in the US/Canada and 700 with non-native.
