Unfortunately it seems as though breeding loans may well be a thing of the past. The current recommended quarantine peroid for new reptiles is 12months and when you consider that you will also have to quarantine your animal on it's return to protect the rest of your collection, with the exception of rarer species or morph's, a breeding loan is simply not worth while. It is believed that this virus can lay dormant for anywhere up to 10 months hence the 12 month recommendation. Now consider a proposed breeding loan where the owner of the male has asked for as many females as possible to put across their snake. Makes it kind of hard to ensure adequate quarantine wouldn't you think? The threat of OPMV is very real. So much so that the VHS has decided not to hold their expo next year even though this years was reportedly a huge success.
