Discussion on Herpetoculture Techniques and Experiences


This month's meeting will feature a discussion about several herpetoculture topics such as cage/enclosure design, husbandry techniques and other related subject matters, but most importantly about sharing ideas with each other. This discussion will be led by Calusa Herp Society members Jim and Penny Cox Attendees will be able to converse and share ideas with each other about everything concerning the captive maintenance of amphibians and reptiles, including purchasing or legally acquiring herps in Florida. Everyone has had different experiences with animals in their collection. Other keepers can greatly benefit from hearing what has worked and has not worked with your captive collection and breeding. Come and ask others questions and tell us about your experiences, so we can all learn in a friendly environment. Please text/email/call Jim and Penny before the meeting if there is a topic you would like to discuss. You can also send pictures that can be added to their slide presentation, to better illustrate the discussion such as your enclosure, animals, food items, eggs. etc. 


After the meeting, you are invited to join us at a nearby restaurant (announced at the meeting) for more herp discussions and camaraderie over food and drinks. See you there! $5.00 for non-members per meeting or buy a year membership ($25 individual) or ($30 family/business). The address of the Calusa Nature Center is 3450 Ortiz Ave, Fort Myers, FL 33905.


WHO'S INVITED? You are! Anyone with an interest in any aspect of herpetology or herpetoculture is welcome to attend, learn, and exchange their experiences with our friendly membership. Come out to meet others who keep, breed or study reptiles and amphibians, and let them share their fascination with you. We average 10 - 20 people attending every meeting.
