Arriving at Adelaide we met up with JP from QLD and waited for shawn (rocket) to pick us up. We went to his house and saw...

    2012: A year in review (warning: massive self indulgent post)

    I've seen a few "herping 2012" around the joint so I decided to put this together over the last few weeks when I've had spare time. I don't post much anymore, but I do put stuff on flickr. I just fail to use it in posts. I do enjoy putting threads together- so humour me. The last year is now...

    A question: is it important to allow reptiles that normally hibernate in the wild, to hibernate in captivity? Yes or know? Why? What advantage would it be to the animal? :D:D:D

    Does anyone know of a (West) Aussie snake that might look something like this.....?

    Hi All, my Dad found a snake in his garden this arvo and we're not sure what it was. We live in WA and he lives close to a nature reserve/conservation area. The nearest pic we found was of an Indian snake a "Banded Krait". I'm assuming the snake must have slithered away again.

    Conservation: Future Directions

    A discussion has taken place in another thread that I feel deserves a wider audience than the title it has would get. I would strongly suggest before posting to go a read: APS Thread : 'Australia thinking about exporting again' (The title doesn't give the discussion the justice it deserves)...
