At the Joseph Moore Museum the herpetology collection is devoted to the maintenance and care of our 1,290 specimens that includes 456 genera and 684 different species. Almost half of all the specimens are from Indiana and the surrounding area, providing a catalog of both native and invasive species. The collection also contains reptiles and amphibians from over 30 states and 19 countries, including a tuatara!
