Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas
A blue-spotted salamander poses for its close-up. We're checking in on the amphibians and reptiles of Vermont.

Here's a word you might not know: herp (verb). It means to search for reptiles and amphibians. If you're a herper (noun) - either a dabbler or a full-blown frog freak - you won't want to miss this Vermont Edition. We're talking with local guru Jim Andrews; he'll give us an update on the cold-blooded world and answer your questions. 

Jim Andrews is coordinator of the Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas.

Broadcast live on Wednesday, August 23 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
