Reptile Survey.

- (Added 17. Feb. 2018)

'Hi, I am a veterinary student at the Royal Veterinary College, London and am looking into arthritis-like spinal disease in snakes. Although these pathologies are known to occur in snakes, the prevalence and causes are currently unknown. I am trying to get a better understanding of these areas in the hopes that this will help prevent occurrences or improve the prognosis of individuals affected in the future. If you own snakes I would really appreciate you taking the time to fill out my survey. All data will be anonymised.'

Many thanks,

Teresa Burnford

Breeders Meetings - New Policy - June 2017

- (Added 29. Jun. 2017)

At the June IHS Breeders Meeting notice was given to implement a new policy by the Federation of British Herpetologists (FBH) to implement a prohibition on the sale of certain morphs due to significant welfare concerns.

This decision has been taken on best available scientific evidence and veterinary advice, and applies to all FBH accredited shows. It will be kept under constant revision and amended as and when evidence becomes available to either add or removed morphs.

To allow adjustment to the new rules the prohibition does not come into effect until January 2018.
