What's so Funny, I am the one laughing at you


The Suncoast Herpetological Society (SHS) is a not-for-profit, educational, and recreational club for people with an interest in reptiles and amphibians with an emphasis on Responsible Husbandry & Captive Breeding. The Suncoast Herpetological Society is dedicated to education. We provide education talks to citizen's in the Pinellas County community as well as the surrounding counties' communities. Each month we have someone speak on a herp related topic at the meeting and on a regular basis we go into the community to provide information giving talks at libraries, schools and environmental education centers.
