  • Basic Biology of Reptiles & Amphibians
    heat themselves up and the reason is to do with the way they breathe Reptiles have perfectly functional lungs getting all the oxygen they need from breathing in the same way that we do By contrast although all but a few kinds of amphibians have lungs they are by comparison small and poorly developed and their arrangement of ribs and breastbone does not allow them to be used as efficiently as they are in reptiles Their solution is to breathe partially with lungs and partially through their skins the oxygen diffusing across the thin moist skin and entering their bloodstream This inevitably means that unlike scaly skinned reptiles amphibians cannot sit out in strong sunlight or they would dry out and die As a result amphibians tend to be secretive and hide themselves away in shady spots during the day Reproduction Nowhere do reptiles and amphibians differ from mammals and from each other quite so dramatically than when it comes to reproduction Although some species have developed quite remarkable reproductive strategies amphibians as a group have remained heavily tied to the water for breeding purposes most going through the familiar egg tadpole frog sequence so familiar from our own garden ponds The details vary in terms of the tadpoles development the method of mating and the duration of tadpole hood but the core of the story is unchanged Even the most extraordinary approaches such as Darwin s frogs Rhinoderma darwinii which brood their young in their mouths and the Surinam toad Pipa pipa which implants eggs in its back until they hatch are essentially simply variations on the same theme By contrast back in prehistory reptiles mastered the transition to the land with the combination of their scaly water tight skins and the invention of an enclosed egg not in a shell as hard as a bird s but in a leathery parchment which does the job every bit as well In most species these eggs are laid and left to hatch in due course unlike a bird there is little parental care in most reptiles the notable exception being alligators and crocodiles which show remarkable dedication to their young However in some kinds of snakes and lizards the eggs are retained inside the female being laid simultaneously as they hatch the young to all intents and purposes arriving into the world in much the same manner as any mammal Three of Britain s own reptiles reproduce in this way the Common Lizard Lacerta vivipara the Slow Worm Anguis fragilis and the Adder Vipera berus a breeding adaptation known as ovi viviparity The biology of reptiles and amphibians is a fascinating study and contains so many remarkable aspects including the likes of a snake s ability to taste the air with its forked tongue the way salamanders can re grow lost limbs and how lizards shed their tails to escape predators For anyone interested in keeping these remarkable creatures delving into their extraordinary way of life and their unique adaptations

  • How to Insure Your Exotic Pet
    your arthritic iguana you can only claim for treatments for other ailments it suffers Other insurance policies take the animal as is and will pay out accordingly although they may tend to have more expensive premiums as a result Depending on the species of animal and what you intend to do you might also want to check that the policy will insure things such as complications arising from breeding or whether your animal is covered in transit particularly if you intend exhibiting it in shows Life Long Cover does your policy insure your pet throughout its life or only until a certain age An eight or ten year cut off may not bother you if you re keeping something with a five year lifespan but if you re a tortoise keeper you ll be horribly under insured Lost or Stolen many policies will pay a specified amount to help you advertise the fact your pet has gone missing and may even cover the offer of a small reward Check the small print to make sure just what is covered Discounts does the pet insurance policy offer any discounts Some companies provide generous discounts if you insure more than one animal with them which is good news for anyone with a sizeable collection of pets and they don t necessarily all have to be exotics Most insurers are very keen to keep your business so if you have a policy to cover the family cat or dog it s worth asking if they ll cover your other animals too Liability Insurance does the policy cover you if your pet does damage to anyone else s property or worse to anyone else themselves You might think it s difficult to see how this could happen and it might be irrelevant if you only keep a couple of small and inoffensive geckoes but we do live in an increasingly litigious world and some people are quite prepared to claim for anything For the small extra cost on your annual premium it s definitely one to think about if there s a chance your pets could do any harm It s might also be worth checking to see if your house insurance covers any damage your pet does to your own home including a flooded living room if the tank breaks Getting Advice Your vet and other pet keepers can often offer useful advice from their own experience and there s a lot to be said for personal recommendation However don t forget that the people who really know their policies inside out are the insurance companies themselves so never be afraid to pick up the phone or write if there s anything you re unsure about before you sign up It can also be a good way of gauging how easy they would be in the event you ever do have to make a claim If your enquiries are met with anything other than a helpful pleasant and knowledgeable reception from whoever you

  • Rules and Regulations on Keeping Exotic Pets
    minimum age for buying or winning a pet to 16 though children younger than this can of course still legally own a pet The new rules certainly have some serious teeth to back them up the most serious offences carry a maximum penalty of up to 51 weeks imprisonment or a fine of up to 20 000 or both This act applies only in England and Wales the Scottish Parliament having passed a similar legislation the Animal Health and Welfare Act 2006 while in Northern Ireland the Welfare of Animals Act Northern Ireland 1972 is the principal set of legal rules governing animal care Dangerous Wild Animals Act Originally brought in to curb the ownership of creatures which posed a real danger to the public the Dangerous Wild Animals Act s main contribution was to stop clueless lunatics keeping lions and tigers in one bedroom flats to the obvious relief of sane people everywhere Owners of animals which featured on the dangerous list could apply for a licence to keep their pets but were expected to be able to demonstrate that they were competent to keep the creature in question and could provide it with a proper environment in which to live This situation has persisted since the act originally came into force in 1976 While some of the species originally on the list have been taken off and others added by and large the rules seem to be working pretty well if the reduction in the numbers of crocodiles being kept in baths is anything to go by Fortunately since no reputable dealer will sell you any creature to which this legislation applies unless you have a licence to keep it you re unlikely to fall foul of the rules Other Rules and Regulations Depending on the type of animal you keep other rules and regulations also apply The Wildlife and Countryside Act for example gives protection to some of our native species which might once have been considered for keeping as exotic pets and prohibits the release of exotic species into the wild Some of the European endangered species which in the past were seen as potential pets are today afforded protection under the Berne Convention and other similar EU statutes For questions about this kind of regulations or the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species CITES DEFRA should definitely be your first call Away from the large national and international pieces of legislation there can often be other more local rules on keeping exotic pets particularly if you live in rented accommodation or a block of flats with a residents committee Not everyone is particularly open minded or welcoming when it comes to exotic pets and sometimes no amount of diplomacy or protestations about how inoffensive your snake is or harmless your scorpion will win people over Although just about everything seems to have some law or regulation attached to it for the most part law abiding responsible pet keepers aren t likely to need to
