Dr Glenn Shea

School of Veterinary Science

Glenn Shea is senior lecturer in Veterinary Anatomy at the Sydney School of Veterinary Science, and a Research Associate of the Australian Museum. His teaching for over three decades has concentrated around equine regional anatomy and the anatomy of non-domestic vertebrates. His research focus is on the taxonomy of Australian and New Guinean reptiles, with over 170 publications in this field. Both teaching and research work have involved extensive contact with death in its many forms.

Dr Glenn Shea’s research focuses on the systematics and natural history of Australasian reptiles and amphibians, particularly skinks, blind snakes and pygopod lizards. He also has a strong interest in the history of Australasian herpetology.
