The goal of Herper of the Week is to highlight people from all walks of life who work with reptiles and amphibians and show their work to others. This week’s Herper of the Week is Ethan Kocak! While Ethan isn’t the usual type of herper I pick that are mostly professors, biologists, and ecologists. Ethan inspires others with his personal collection of reptiles and amphibians and his comic book The Black Mudpuppy. His comic book highlights the conservation needs of salamanders. He is also illustrated the book Does it fart? He also makes avatars for people in twitter for just $20.
