Thanks to Daan for the very interesting talk on his keeping and breading tortoises and lizards. Your enclosure pictures was a nice show of how the European style of herpetology works

Arno and Heidi thank you very much for arrangin this. It is very interessting to see how they do it in Europe. It would be nice to have a talk on how we can do it in a similar fashion in SA. My concern would be that the greenhouse would be too warm for the reptiles and not allow them to thermo regulate.

Colin I think where we are the greenhouse would only work for seriously tropical species but would get too cold at night. Very interesting to see the species Daan was working on. The newts were very nice. Pity everything seems to be protected or outlawed. I guess the world over, herpers have the same problems.

Yes it was actually funny to hear that they even have reptiles confiscated and that they have quite strict regulations on keeping reptiles. I would love to have the Newts in my collection but again their climate allows him to have them in the garden. Here we will have a full time job keeping all the neighbours cats out of your pond. Looking forward to next meeting my Gaboon against yours :) in the beauty pagent.
