"Frank Wall"

Frank Wall. (2008, December 20). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 00:38, December 20, 2008, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Frank_Wall&oldid=259072154

Frank Wall (April 21, 1868 - May 19, 1950) was a physician and herpetologist who lived in Sri Lanka and India.

Wall was born in Colombo, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). His father worked there and was responsible for initiating the study of natural history on the island. Wall studied medicine in London and joined the Indian Medical Service in 1893. Sent to India under the British Raj, Wall continued to work there until 1925 and researched many animals, especially snakes. He collected numerous snakes, many of which are now in the British Museum.

Wall was a member of the Bombay Natural History Society and published more than 200 scientific articles, as well as the book A Popular Treatise on the Common Indian Snakes. He died in Bournemouth.
