: : Hey Danny,
: : I know I'm not yet a member, but unless something goes grossly wrong this Sunday, I will be after the picnic :) That is, if I can join then? Anyway, all I have been saying about nothing down my way, and I noticed the next meeting is being planned for the Cape May County Zoo!! That's right down the road from me!! If you need any help, or there is anything I can do, please let me know, I would love to help! I have other questions, but I'll save them for Sunday. See you then!
: Hi Rachel,
: Oh, I have plans for you already...as a rehabber you will undoubtedly be called to action, no worries... :)
: Seriously, I am looking forward to meeting you this sunday. You can join up if you'd like then...have a safe drive up!
Hehe, my secret is out :P Actually, I'm not a licensed rehabber, just a rescuer. BUT, I do have a good reptile vet, a good bit of knowledge myself, and an undying love for all reptiles. In NJ, a licenced reptile rehabber is directed towards rehabbing and releasing injured native wildlife. I deal mostly with people's unwanted pets in taking them in and finding them new homes, not releasing them. And in most cases, these are Burmese Pythons, Boas and Iguanas, which are not native (except iguanas to FL as an introduced species). I had actually started apprenticeship briefly for the rehabber's permit, when I discovered this wasn't going to help with the surrendered pets. Instead, I'm currently looking to find some online courses on general Herpetology and first aid. Anyone know of any, please let me know! You have my curiousity going now...me wonders what Danny is planning for me?..hehe :P
