The Reptile Report - A group of turtles, salamanders and frogs in Montgomery County, Maryland have been hit with a deadly ranavirus. Reptile and amphibian expert Jim White says the virus hasn’t come to Delaware but that doesn’t mean it won’t.

“These viruses tend to move quickly once they get into an area,” he said.

White says even though the virus is currently in a small part of Maryland things can change fast.

To help keep track of local reptile and amphibian populations the state will be holding a frog count to survey frog life in Delaware.
