You must be a current financial member to be on the committee (don’t forget memberships expired end of April!)
The 2019 edition of the Red Bellied Courier is now also available & can be picked up on the night by financial members.
We will also be holding the annual auction with plenty of items available!
Guest Speaker: Mitchell Hodgson
Mitchell Hodgson is an enthusiastic reptile keeper that has kept and bred a wide variety of Australian native lizards. Mitchell’s primary interest was in keeping small dragon species, however over the years his keeping interests have expanded to geckos, skinks, varanids and snakes. His interest in keeping pet lizards ultimately led him to pursue a PhD focusing on lizard behaviour and physiology. Mitchell’s presentation will be a collection of thoughts and observations about keeping lizards (and maybe some snakes!). He’ll be sharing some of the more useful tips and tricks he’s come across so that keepers can get more enjoyment out of keeping their animals. Expect to hear about things like what underrated species make great captives, how to lessen your maintenance with bioactive enclosures and how to make things a little easier for yourself the keeper!
