Chattanooga, Tennessee—

Two teens and getting noticed on TikTok for doing things kids used to do all the time. Tim Holland and Ro Smith have nearly a half a million followers between them on TikTok and more than 4.5 million likes. In all their videos they are “herping,” which Holland says is short for herpetology, or “the process and studies of reptiles and amphibians, you just go out and look for them.” The two are seniors at Lucy Laney High School and have been herping together for a long time. Theyusually go to a waterway—usually the canal in Augusta, Georgia—and look for animals. When they find them, they try to catch them, and if they do, they make a video of the animal and explain what it is. Smith says he plans to go to college and become a “herpetologist, biologist [or] zoologist.”
