    He would even GIVE reptiles (I believe generally blue tongues) he bred to students who got permission from their parents and showed a keen interest and would help with licensing.


    He was a beauty. Not in a creepy way, at all, for the record. Just genuinely happy to continue the hobby.

    Oh really?

    We had to breed mice and have a hypothesis for what the babies would be like based on the parents and explain why rah rah rah.
    You could keep the babies or your pair of you had parental permission.

    I believe some older grades bred rats, but I never did. I used to visit and pat them though haha


    Country SA education is pretty good it seems, who knew?!

    We bred mice as well. And I took mine home.

    They lasted in their little cage for ages, until we went on holiday and my nan didn’t feed and water them like she’d promised. Poor little things didn’t make it and I returned home to very dead mice. :(
