Care Sheets

The Minnesota Herpetological Society seeks to support budding herpetoculturists in caring for reptiles and amphibians at home.  To that end, we have prepared a set of informational pdfs for some of the hobby’s most popular pets to help start the research process.

Please note that these information sheets are not comprehensive and that additional research is needed before bringing home any animal.

Be sure that any animal you bring home is in compliance with city, state, and federal laws. 

Every animal should go through an appropriate quarantine procedure.
