Why should you get a VHS membership? Your membership dues go directly towards supporting research and conservation efforts in Virginia. Without your dues, we would not have been able to fund research that was able to confirm the presence of Snake Fungal Disease in the state.
Today, the VHS is announcing the preliminary results of ongoing research. Those that attended our Fall Meeting last October would have seen an excellent presentation by the veterinarian that initiated this research.

State herpetologist J.D. Kleopfer does an excellent job dispelling wive's tales and explaining how most every snake is incorrectly labeled as a venomous snake.

Rex Springston has been writing articles on Virginia's native herps for over a decade. He continually puts them in the favorable light the animals deserve. If you like the article, let Mr. Springston and his paper know.
