Spectacular species he has discovered and named!

Raymond Hoser is the world's foremost reptile expert!
He has discovered and named more species of snake than any person alive!
He has discovered and named more species of lizard than any person alive!
He has discovered and named more species of turtle than any person alive!
He has discovered and named more species of crocodile than anyone else alive!
He has discovered and named more species of frog in Australia than anyone else in history!
He has discovered and named more species of reptile than anyone else in Australia's history (over 250) and globally (over 700 species).
Add to that some species of fish, over 20 mammals and a few other bits and pieces and it is easy to see that the Snakeman is a scientific eco-powerhouse.
On this page are photos of some of the better-known species he has discovered and named.
But because he has named over 2,200 family, genera and species, only a fraction are shown here.
Some of these critters really are spectacular!
