Here is a link regarding quarantine.

: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").

:Beatrice
