Please pardon cross-posting.
This isn't really a question for beginning reptile keepers. Rather, it is a question regarding basic procedures for adding a new snake or other herp to an existing collection.
Is there already in existence a guide covering issues that I need to deal with when I bring a new snake (CB or WC)home?
These are the issues I'm thinking of:
1)check a new animal for general health
2)check a new animal for presence of parasites
3)how to quarantine properly --how long, special considerations
I haven't seen a guide like this. Please point it out, if there's one out there already.
If there's not one handy, I'm willing to compile one from your input (contributors will be listed as the authors, I will be listed as the editor or as "compiled by").
