My name is Wesley Anderson and I'm a freshman at Davidson College. I'm originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and have done a fair amount of herping around my state.
I've been involved with the herp lab since my entrance into the college. My responsibilities include caring for all of the animals in the lab and checking the drift fence among other things. I have yet to become involved with any research, but I hope to change that soon.
I like all herps but have a particular interest in snakes. Over the years I've kept and observed many ophidian species in captivity and the wild. I have a particular interest in rear-fanged colubrids.
Here are some photographs of rear-fanged colubrids I've kept in the past
