Informative and well put together

As a landscaper with a curiosity for herpetology I've gotten a lot of use out of this app. Being able to Identify snakes on the go helps me stay safe and relocate the ones that aren't dangerous so my mowers don't kill them. I don't kill poisonous ones either I just avoid the ones I see which is very rare.

I love this app but its missing a snake

This app is amazing and I love it. Please add Storeria dekayi to the main page. It’s available under search but isn’t on the main page. There are 37 snake species in NC but you only show 36 on the menu. Add the brown snake so others can identify it. Other than that, this app is awesome! Thank you so much!

Excellent work

The Davidson College Herpetological Lab has done it again. This is an excellent work suitable for enthusiasts of all levels. This resource is amazing and I truly appreciate all the work that has been done in bringing it to fruition. My new favorite app for sure!
