Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the KU Herpetological Collection
Wednesday, July 10, 2024
12:10 - 12:50 p.m.

Meet in front of the Natural History Museum, Dyche Hall

KU is home to one of the most important biodiversity collections in the world. KU Herpetology is one of the top five largest collections in the United States and houses more than 340,000 preserved reptiles and amphibians. We have larger collections of neotropical frogs than anywhere in the world and some of most important collections of reptiles and amphibians from Kansas, the Caribbean and the Philippines. Although all the data for our collections is freely available online, more than 99.9% of our specimens are never on public exhibit. During this tour, you will get a peek behind the scenes at some of our most spectacular and important specimens, including a new species of giant monitor lizard, giant frogs and snakes, amphibians whose young feast on their mother's flesh and extinct frogs. You will also learn about the important uses of our collections, from studying climate change to tracking the history of global pandemics.

  • Registration is open on MyTalent for KU employees
