and he was interested in helping me with my research. There are two professors there (husband and wife) who were the ones to reclassify Bushmasters. I don't know much about the project, partially because I never had an interest in venemous, and partially because I didn't get to meet him.

Cornell does have a fairly large herpetology club, but I don't know about academic programs. They have had some trouble after New York put their ban into effect last year. Many of the animals in the university's collection were collected in the field by professors, or donated, so there are some pretty interesting stories behind some. The professor I was talking to shared his capture of a Gila Monster.

Cornell's veterenary school is ranked very high, and I would expect they have some connections to herpetology. On of my High School friends who is going there as well is studying to be a vet, so I think that she will have some things to offer as well. Most of the work I want to do right now doesn't require the animals themselves, but just blood samples of enzyme testing. I can say one thing, it will be an incredible time!
