Have you long lamented the absence of a blog carnival devoted especially to reptiles and amphibians? If so, today is your lucky day. Amber of Birder’s Lounge and Jason of xenogere have conspired together to kick off a celebration of all things herpetological. Say hello to the new House of Herps! Looks good, right? The deadline for the inaugural issue is December 15 so send your links and summaries to submissions [at] houseofherps.com. You know I already did!
