Welcome.
I created this website because when I arrived in Mayotte, an island of the Comoros, I did not find any information about the herpetofauna, exept a list of species whose taxonomy was obsolette. So I did my own researches on the field and I talked with Mr. Oliver Hawlitschek, a herpetologist from the Bavarian State Collection of Zoology who had worked on the island. So he introduced me to the new taxonomy and informed me about the particuliarity of some uncommon species.
I hope this little guide will help you find answers to your questions. You are invited to send me your data or ask  about the identification of specimens.
Thank you.
