I'd be up for that. Especially since, at least for now, there don't seem to be the amount of spottings in Indonesia as there are in a lot of other countries. So just a lizards and snakes group might be quite sparse for a while ;)

I've created a snakes and lizards of Indonesia one. http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1756...
Though I'm quite happy to change the name to Reptiles and Amphibians as that would encompass more.

Done and done. Thanks for setting it up! We still need a general Mammals of Indonesia, and Reptiles and Amphibians of Indonesia ;)
