About us

herping brazil

Herping Brazil was born of a want to offer herpetological expeditions to wildlife enthusiasts and photographers in the large, megadiverse country named “Brazil”.

Brazil is home to an impressive list of pit vipers, including dream species like the Brazilian Lancehead, the Jararacussu, and the Mato Grosso Lancehead to name just a few! Next to these top snakes, Brazil has an endemic-rich anurofauna featuring spectacular, rare species like the Bahia forest frog and the Pumpkin toadlet that are only found in some restricted areas of the Atlantic Rainforest.

Most of our tours are customized, private tours but once a year we offer a set date itinerary with a lead herpetologist.

We know that herpetofauna is not everyone’s cup of tea. If you are not into herping but that you want to give it a try, hike at night in the jungle and find some cool creatures, please contact us!
