Please pardon cross-posting.

This isn't really a specific health question. Rather, it is a question regarding basic procedures for adding a new 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 herp (CB or WC)home?

These are the issues I'm thinking of:
1)check a new herp for general health
2)check a new herp for presence of parasites
3)how to quarantine properly --how long, special considerations
4)other issues

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").
