    I'm just wondering if anyone collects wild caught insects in UK or Ireland for tropical herps? I have an enormous amount of insects etc. in my garden and I often wonder if they'd be safe to feed my lizards. Obviously you'd have to know what insects are suitable and ensure they are pesticide...

    Hi there, I have just added a dendrophalis pictus to my collection. My question....does anybody else in the UK keep this species? And if so any husbandry tips? They are a stunning species and have some amazing display traits.

    I just bought a wild caught V. Salvator (Water Monitor) juvenile for 10 USD and it is really vicious biting me any chance it gets. He's really young. Probably less than a month old. I assume I can tame him down eventually and handling him is no problem with a pair of leather gloves, but there...

    I am thinking about getting some pygmy chameleons. The only ones I can find in stock are wild caught. So can someone tell me how to care for wild caught pygmy chams. Oh and if I get them I will breed them to make my own captive bred ones.

    Hello all this is my first thread. Before some people start to sharpen their pitch forks I will say the legal side of keeping slow worms. They are protected in schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. It is illegal to intestinally harm and or kill one. It is illegal to sale...

    Hi I have been roaming the internet for "red eyed crocodile skinks" and have stumbled upon some for sale but don't know what to think of these as they are wild caught.

    So around a week ago I received my new (wild caught) Giant African Millipede from a seller.... He appeared fine for the first few days, he burrowed on the first day but come out in the evenings to feed, and occasionally slept in his coconut hide... Now he has remained burrowed for two, maybe...

    Indonesia remains epicenter for illegal wildlife trade in reptiles and amphibians An alarming piece on Mongabay this morning. Dan Natusch, who wrote an excellent thesis on the biogeography of GTPs in Australia, has conducted a survey (along with Jessica Lyons) which shows that the Indonesian...

    One thing I gleen from species that are wild caught is what is happening to some of their habitat in certain countries. I openly admit that I'm no big fan of WC and am of the opinion only certain herpetologists/ organisations/ researchers etc should be allowed to obtain certain WC species and...

    So, as part of a college assignment, I have to find out why people who own a reptile/reptiles, buy either a captive-bred or a wild-caught reptile. And that is where you guys come in! Please can you detail the reasons why you bought the type you have. (This is for all reptiles, and all...

    Hey guys. So, for college, we have been tasked to carry out an investigative project. For my project, I have decided to find out about the differences in owning a captive bred and owning a wild caught reptile (so, for example, basic care, costs, why people choose either, that sort of thing). For...
