The Edmonton Reptile and Amphibian Society (ERAS) was founded in 1994 by a handful of reptile hobbyists with one common goal in mind. To advance the hobby by promoting and improving husbandry,  and provide a social group for hobbyists and conservationists. Since then the society has made contributions to numerous other groups and charities, aided in local bylaw formation and changes, hosted reptile shows nearly every year, hosted educational presentations and so much more. We also try to provide current news, and look for opportunities to educate the public at events.
