National Reptile Awareness Day

National Reptile Awareness Day is celebrated across the United States each year on October 21, to educate and inform the public about these often underappreciated cold-blooded vertebrates. The day was established in to raise awareness about the importance of preserving their natural habitats and promoting appreciation and conservation of the nearly 10,000 species of reptiles around the world.

"Reptiles and amphibians are sometimes thought of as primitive, dull and dimwitted. In fact, of course, they can be lethally fast, spectacularly beautiful, surprisingly affectionate and very sophisticated." – Sir David Attenborough

Celebrate the day by enjoying the following collection of artwork by AFC members. Many are for sale with a portion of proceeds pledged to conservation.
