    I don't think anyone on the internet is going to tell you what to take with you to herp. There's an honor system, and you never know who out there is doing it to poach and engage in other unsavory activities. Further, if you go out, please please please do not flip stuff over, dig through wood piles, etc. and destroy microhabitats these animals rely on for survival. Please put things back exactly as you've found them! And finally, if you're asking what else you should take with you, I'm inclined to suggest that you not touch anything you'd need a snake hook for. No disrespect intended. :)

    Most people that Herp do not go alone. You have to respect a wilds environment, you can observe them and watch. When handling them you will want an expert trained in the field.

    A field guide for what ever species you are looking for. I generally bring along three of mine one each on herps, birds and mammals.
