There are online resources scattered all over the net; herpers seem to
like
making WWW pages.  This section is somewhat biased toward WWW resources,
in
part because of the ease of searching the Web, in part because other
routes
of access to these resources are pretty spotty.  Anyone with knowledge
of
FTP sites is invited to contribute to this section of the FAQ!

In due course, there will probably be a rec.pets.herp home page, where
most
of these resources will be gathered.  Watch this space for updates.

Adam Britton keeps a Web page of crocodilian resources at
        <http://crocodilian.com/>

Liza Daly maintains the Herp Net Resources FAQ at
        <http://fovea.retina.net/~gecko/herps/misc/net-resources.shtml>

Melissa Kaplan maintains a *large* collection of care sheets and
informative
articles on her herp page, at
        <http://www.sonic.net/~melissk/>

Mike Greathouse maintains the The Manasota Herpetological Society at 
	<http://manasotaherp.com/>
This lists over a thousand links to other herping spots.

Mike Pingleton maintains the FAQs on mites, African clawed frogs, and
crocodilians, and has them all at
        <http://gto.ncsa.uiuc.edu/pingleto/faq.html>

Jennifer Swofford has a herp page with its own domain name, with *lots*
of
links to other online resources and offline information:
	<http://www.baskingspot.com/>

All these sites, and many others, contain pointers to additional WWW
pages.
It's possible to cruise around the Web, restricting your attention to
herps,
and turn blue in the face before you run out of places to go.  A good
central
nexus of pointers resides on the Colorado Herpetological Society's
pointer
page, at
        <http://coloherp.org/herplink/index.htm>

The Herpetology section of the Virtual Library resides at
        <http://cmgm.stanford.edu/~meisen/herp/>
and contains a wide variety of links; most of them are of a more
scientific
bent than the typical hobbyist's page.

There is a mailing list devoted to snake keeping, called slither.
Information
is available at the URL
        <http://www.slither.com/slither.html>,
and a subscription can be had by sending a piece of email saying
"subscribe
slither" to majordomo@southwind.net. It is best in this and all cases to
read
the related information prior to subscribing!

A UK-specific Usenet newsgroup can be found at uk.rec.pets.misc. Other
country-
specific newsgroups may be available as well; check your local
hierarchy.
