The Herpetological Literature of Oklahoma is a bibliography of herpetological works pertaining to Oklahoma.

Krupa and published as Oklahoma Herpetology: An Annotated Bibliography by the University of Oklahoma Press in 1989.
Major North American herpetological journals as well as regional journals and the popular literature were examined to discover articles pertaining to Oklahoma that should be included.
