Welcome to the new LGCHS website. We have moved our site to a new host because Kingsnake.com is no longer offering this service. Many thanks to Kingsnake for the support for so many years. It is my goal to upgrade the site both technically and to more accurately reflect the current status of LGCHS. The site will useful to all of us, especially in Louisiana, that have an interest in any aspect of herpetology. If you have comments or suggestions as to what should be included or how the site should grow please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
