Furman University - Campus as Habitat


As part of Furman University's "Campus as Habitat" project, Ben DeLancey (class of '11, pictured to the right) began a formal survey of amphibians and reptiles in summer 2010. Ben was supported with a Furman Advantage Research Stipend. This species list was developed from that survey, and from records of specimens in the Furman University Zoological Collection. If you take a picture of a species not shown below, please send your picture -- noting the date, time, and place -- to Wade Worthen (wade.worthen@furman.edu). Your picture will be added to our list as your observation.

Move the cursor over the name of a species, and a picture of that species will appear to the right.
