The Southeastern Louisiana University Vertebrate Museum is a research facility for the study of ecology, evolution, and natural history of vertebrate animals. We possess specimens of fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. The Vertebrate Museum aids in the research of numerous scientists at Southeastern Louisiana University and elsewhere, and also serves as a repository for specimens from studies by our faculty, students, and collaborators.
