The collection of amphibians and reptiles in the Division of Herpetology is the fourth largest in the United States. It contains specimens from 160 countries, and is the world's largest collection of neotropical amphibians and reptiles. The collection has grown from 50,000 specimens in 1959 to approximately 335,000 specimens today. Nearly 75% of all reptile and amphibian genera and approximately 55% of reptile and amphibian species worldwide are represented in the collection. The collection includes 575 holotypes. In addition to the fluid-preserved specimens, there are 8,000 skeletons (including the world's largest collection of anuran skeletons), an extensive collection of amphibian larvae and eggs, 4,000+ recordings of anuran vocalizations, 30,000 digital images. The composition of the collection is 71.43% Neotropical, 24.65% Neartic, 1.41% Ethiopian, 1.04% Asian, 0.90% Australo-Papuan, and 0.55% Pacific. Currently, the geographic areas of most growth include significant new collections from Asia (Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and China) and the SW Pacific (Solomon Islands) and Kansas.
