AMPHIBIANS, REPTILES and SMALL MAMMALS
The Amphibians and Reptiles SIG studies indigenous herpitiles. They discuss what we can do to protect their ability to survive and thrive in the wild and communicate the sense of awe and wonder of these amazing beings.

Reptile Removal: We encourage residents to leave harmless, beneficial reptiles in their landscapes. Please share this information with your friends and neighbors. For this free service, call Jim Christiansen at 512-868-3504, John Leek at 713-825-0145, Joe Plunkett at 774-226-0810 or Joe Moore at 512-639-8319. Even roadkill specimens are needed for our important survey of Sun City herps. If none of these contacts are available and you feel a snake might be dangerous, call City of Georgetown Animal Control at 930-3592.
Reptile Census: A census of Sun City reptiles is an ongoing project. Even "road kill" specimens of snakes, turtles, frogs, toads, lizards, and other reptiles are needed for this important survey. Please call us and/or bag the specimen and freeze it until pick-up. Also, please include the date and where you found it. Thank you!
An informative reptile and amphibian brochure is available upon request and at Nature Club and SIG meetings and has been distributed throughout Sun City.
