    On Sunday I noticed an apparently healthy adult grass snake moving about a flower bed where I was working. A bit later I was surprised to see it again, so we had a closer look. It did not react to us at all until touched, even then did not hide. Close inspection of the head revealed probably...

    Hi all, I've posted on the shelled forums before as I have a Russian tortoise, but this this week I came across a young grass snake at work. It was in a storage building which has a concrete floor, fairly smooth with a few places it could hide away if needed. I'm loathe to interfere as it's a...

    So yesterday, I went on a picnic near a local herping spot with a few friends (kind of a double date actually - very fun!). And, me being me, I had to investigate the surrounding area for wildlife first. As I was stealthily stalking along, I heard a high-pitched squeaking and zeroed in on the...

    WANTED - European grass snakes. They were on my wish list for Hamm but there was none. I have heard rumor that there is someone in Wrexham and another in Stoke that may sell them. Does anyone have any information that may help me? Or any snakes for sale?!?!

    Hi all! As I mentioned in my 'newbie' post, I am taking the lead on a new native herp centre at a public aquarium where I work as a biologist. For certain animals we do not wish to conduct breeding activity but would like some for display. For this reason we do not wish to collect from the...
