: I'm glad this forum is up. I requested it about a week ago and for it to be up this soon, others must have requested it also.

: I am a longtime snake keeper (I am thirtysomething)and can create some decent, aesthetically pleasing cages, so housing them in the classroom is no problem. I will graduate from college in just over a year and plan on teaching science related classes and having many herps in the classroom. What I would like to get out of this site is what works and what doesn't work in the classroom. Having herps in the classroom is great, but I want students to do more than just look at them and say, "Wow! That looks great!." I want them to be able to get more out of the experience. I look forward to hearing from teachers who have had experience (good and bad) in the classroom with herps. I hope to hear about how to deal with administration in this matter, liability problems, how to integrate the animals with lessons, etc....

: I hope this forum gets a lot of response once people find out about it.

: Thanks,
: Mike
I helped my wife ,who had a BD class set up a aquarium with a pair of black axolotls. It went over very well with the students caring for the salamanders. They laid eggs and hatched baby salamanders and the students took some home.
