Herp Center Resources - Features
Herp Center offers a wide array of Reptile Forums for its members to post in. With over 100+ forums to choose from, Herp Center members should have little issue locating the forum that best suits their questions or comments.
Note: By posting your question or comments in the proper forum, you are likely to yield more responses. Some members only check specific forums when they visit. If you have posted your thread in an improper forum, you will be removing it from the very users you want to read it.
Example: Question about Leopard Gecko gets posted in General or Other forum versus the Leopard Gecko forum.
Our Reptile Care Sheets section was designed to help hobbyists locate information on some common and not-so-common reptile species. We have care information for a multitude of animals spanning Ackie Monitors through our 50+ page Leopard Gecko care guide and 50+ page Green Iguana care guide. Some animals require more information than others and Herp Center has continued to develop these care sheets to meet the questions that the members have asked.
Herp Center has partnered up with Care Sheets and our care sheets can be viewed there as well.
