I just wanted to know if any of you have studied courses to do with reptiles. Im really interesed in getting to know more, as i would eventually like to own my own my own shop and breed my own reptiles. course titles and where you did them would be very helpful.
Thanks for your help

Its not strictly reptiles but I do Marine Biology at the University of Southampton and i;ve just finished a big unit of Marine reptiles. Really interesting!! Esp. seeing as Sea Turtles are my fav animals, and we did all about the Galapagos marine iguana and crocs and everything. Very cool

Theres a couple of reptile based lessons a week on the national diploma in animal management. I started the course but left after a week when I learnt the majority of the course was about rabbits and mice.
I don't think it would be the best course to learn about herps though

These courses look good and only take a weekend to complete. Would be interesting to hear how you get on.

i wouldn't go for the national diploma in animal care, the exotics course is very short. i did the course and it is mainly dogs and cats with a bit of farming.
