Staffordshire Exotic‘s Society


Following a few invite only meetings and lots of various pets, reptiles and various exotics we are now opening up our meetings to any other keepers, friends or interested people who want to turn up.

Date and time
The date of the next meeting is Sunday 25th September
The doors will open at 7:30. So turn up whenever you want after that.

Venue
We have the function room at The White Star pub in Stoke-on-Trent – it’s upstairs.

63 Kingsway
Stoke-on-Trent,
Staffordshire
ST4 1JB


There is a large pay and display car park next to the pub. This might be free on Sunday evening, but I am not sure as the charges keep changing so check this out before leaving your car.

The pub also has a wide selection of reasonably priced drinks including 10 hand pumps of good cask ale.


Animals
All animals are welcome so long as they meet a few conditions. We will at certain times also be putting on specific nights and events, with certain well known reptile enthusiasts turning up with some very unusual and interesting reptiles for a chat and a drink. But this will be a good opportunity to meet a wide range of unusual exotics and reptiles.

The conditions:

·All animals are brought entirely at your own risk, we are in no way responsible for their health, care, behaviour etc
·It is up to you to ensure that all health precautions are taken before the handling of your animal. Anti-bacterial hand wash will be provided.
·All animals must arrive and leave in secure containers.
·No venomous, dangerous or un-controllable animals (if in doubt feel free to ask)
·All animals must be at full health and have been with you long enough so that health problems can be identified to minimise the chances of disease’s being spread.
·Do not bring ill animals or animals that are unwell. If we believe an animal is ill or unwell, we will ask you to remove the animal from the premises to prevent disease spreading or further harm being caused.
·Please use common sense when deciding what animals to bring, do not bring your entire collection every month, one or two will be fine. We only have limited room, so don’t have the room to store your entire collection.
·There are some power sockets in the room (two), so you will need to sort out your own heat packs if required. We have no equipment spare, it is up to you to bring what you think you need. If your animal/s requires a constant temp bringing them to a meet may not be the best option

If in doubt of any of the above, or you wish to confirm feel free to ask via PM, email or on here.​

Contact

If you want any further information please feel free to contact me (spikebrit) on here.

Plan

Basically, we just turn up and have a chat and a drink with like minded people, along with the opertunity to see reptiles and other exotics you might not normally see. We have had some really interesting nights so far.

Things to come

We have various things planned in the future. Such as talks from some well known and interesting reptile and exotic enthusiasts. We will also be offering members discounts at some local shops and on some stock from local large breeders as well.



We look forward to meeting some more keepers and having a general chat with people. Previous meetings have been really good, fun, light hearted evenings and we want this to continue.​

Staffordshire reptile meet - unusual lizards

hi all,

Just wanted to let people know that we now have a Staffordshire Reptile meet. I have placed the general information in general chat here http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forums/general-herp-chat/746458-staffordshire-exotics-society.html

However, I wanted to mention to lizard keepers that we will have some really unusual lizards in attendance. Pending all going well there will be a selection of agama’s, along with Texas horned lizards, stenos and the more common leos and beardies along with some surprises as well.

The Texas horned lizard went down really well in the last meet and was really popular (after the ferret lol)

Of those who have shown and interest will anyone be traveling back to Stafford? We have a member who wants to come but can't get back as public transport stops early.

If you can help drop me a PM.

Cheers
Jay

The next nights are now organised for the 30th October and Sunday the 27th November, looks like it is going to be the last sunday of every month from now on.

Last months was an ace night with the 12 foot albino Burmese, some occolated skinks and some CB grass snakes taken the main stage along with loads of other snakes and lizards (some rare ones as well) had at least 25 different reptiles in that night. So there were loads to see and talk about from the very rare to the common.

Hope to see you all again, if anyone has any pictures stick them up will remeber to put the ones i took up soon as well.

anybody, we have a good few turn up the the previous few meets.

Basically its a drink and chat with like minded people, we also have lots of animals that people bring along, including some very rare and unusual ones so it's a chance to see something you might not usually.

Also, once things get going more we have some great nights planned and have some really amazing talks planned with some awesome special quest appearance.
