    Hello, I work with the RSPCA, rescuing injured, abandoned and mistreated reptiles; everything from Corn Snakes to Crocodiles. At the moment I have a number of reptiles needing new homes. Every reptile has been with me for at least 2 weeks, some months, and are treated for things like mites...

    Interesting article in RSPCA magazine on exotics. In a nutshell they see exotics as a growing problem for them so they are training some inspectors to be "exotics officers". They are also developing more exotic facilities at their centres. The campaign is very much about encouraging research...

    I have just been asked to comment on the RSPCA campaign against the keeping of reptiles as pets, this was in relation to the Five Pledges the RSPCA made a year or so ago. Pledge 5 was to reduce the number of exotics kept as pets and increase their humane care. A few people commented on this at...

    So this is extract from RSPCA review 2013. Please do not turn this into an RSPCA bashing thread. If you want to post rumours/myths or generally moan about the RSPCA please start another thread. Does anyone have any information on what the RSPCA is doing to "investigate the trade" and what...

    I am a member of a bearded dragon page on Facebook. Yesterday, another member posted a photo of her dragon which had had its foot severely bitten by another one it was housed with. She said it had happened yesterday, but is now saying it happened a week ago. Yes, she's left the poor dragon...

    Anyone else noticed this - seems like a good idea to me. We ask the government to investigate the RSPCA's activities, especially where they infringe civl or legal rights. - e-petitions

    As the title says, I've just had the RSPCA round, apparently, I've been reported as having 'a very dangerous snake'... I assume they mean my burm! They said it was reported earlier today, I think it was when I was going to the bin outside, had him with me and he hissed at the local kids because...
