Reptiles and Amphibians of SW Nature Preserve and Beyond
Presented by Michael Smith…We saw photos and heard stories of the frogs and toads, turtles, lizards and snakes found at the preserve and in the surrounding area. Michael answered questions like, “where can you find them” and “are they harmful or helpful?” He also included some information about venomous snakes, even though they have not been seen at the preserve.
Michael A. Smith is the cofounder and past-president of the Dallas–Fort Worth Herpetological Society and often teaches herpetology to local classes of master naturalists. He is the author of two books on herpetology – Herping Texas – The Quest for Reptiles and Amphibians co-authored with Clint R. King and The Wild Lives of Reptiles and Amphibians – A Young Herpetologist’s Guide
