Amphibians and reptiles


The successful keeping of amphibians and reptiles in captivity requires:

  • a sound knowledge of the species’ specific needs;
  • an environment that replicates the features of the animals’ natural environment; and
  • experienced carers that are aware of the signs of health and disease in the species being kept.
