Carolina Herp Atlas

The staff at the Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest has started submitting their reptile and amphibian sightings to the Carolina Herp Atlas.

"The Carolina Herp Atlas is a project developed by the Davidson College Herpetology Laboratory and Davidson College Information Technology Services. The primary objective of the Carolina Herp Atlas is to provide detailed data on the distribution of reptiles and amphibians of North and South Carolina."

The alligator at Goodson Lake has been basking in the sunshine this week and had its picture posted on the Carolina Herp Atlas. The first image shows the alligator as seen from the platform at Goodson Lake, while the second image shows the "zoomed in " shot of the alligator.
