As an FYI to those interested, we also have the "Montreal Herpetological Association". They meet once a month save for the summer months.
I unfortunately have not had the opportunity to attend one of their gatherings but surely plan to when they start up again in the fall.
I personally feel these types of forums and groups are indispensable to me. In my personal life, I am always considered a freak and total wierdo because I love herps. I get so tired of getting stupid comments regarding my passion that I find GREAT relief in participating with others that share the same hobby/passion that I do.
For once I have places where I feel I fit in and am not the wacko of the group!!! LOL
