Upcoming Los Angeles Chapter Speakers on February 06, 2019

February 6th: Rande Gallant will be presenting Iguana Evolution Part 2 - The Cyclurans. This is the second installment of a multi- part project, in which he combines the sciences of paleontology, evolutionary biology, climatology, continental drift, and animal behavior/physiology to come up with a plausible scenario to explain the origin of the Iguanas, and how they got to where they are in the world today.

If you know of someone who would be an interesting speaker for the LA Chapter, please contact Rande Gallant: [email protected]

After graduating from UCD and moving to Los Angeles, I was looking for a group of people who were as passionate about reptiles, education, and conservation as I was. I was not sure that I would be able to find what I sought in this concrete jungle, but in 2013 I was lucky enough to stumble upon the website for SWHS, and I have become increasingly involved since then. The members of SWHS are as welcoming as they are diverse in their interests outside of the society. Herpetologist and Snake Breeder are two great things to summarize me by. I have a strong interest in anything reptile related. Being an active part in the herpetology community is something I absolutely love.
