The Amphibian and Reptile Collection is an active teaching and research resource containing approximately 4,000 specimens. It holds the largest collection of preserved reptiles and amphibians from Alberta, as well as many exotic specimens from North America and around the world. The collection has been instrumental in monitoring various reptile and amphibian populations, and has helped University of Alberta researchers take action on the declining Northern Leopard Frogs and Canadian Toad populations.
