The Beaver State Podcast Episode 90: Salamander stories with Chris Cousins

April 15, 2022

Herpetology is the study of amphibians and reptiles, and herping is the practice of going out to find amphibians and reptiles, Chris Cousins explains in this episode of the podcast. Cousins is a PhD candidate at Oregon State University, where he focuses much of his attention on some of Oregon's most elusive salamander species. Cousins shares a lot of his adventures on his Instagram and sat down to talk with us about what it’s like to make a life out of studying reptiles and amphibians.
