Ball pythons (Python regius) are one of the most commonly kept and bred reptiles in captivity. In a large ball python breeding colony, a unique syndrome characterized by granulomatous inflammation of the cloaca and hemipenes (phalli) was observed in 140 of 481 (29.1%) breeding males, but only...
Foraging behavior in a generalist snake (brown treesnake, Boiga irregularis) with implications for avian reintroduction and recovery
| Contributor(s):: Nafus, Melia G., Xiong, Peter X., Paxton, Eben H., Yackel Adams, Amy A., Goetz, Scott M.
Broad foraging classifications, such as generalist or specialist forager, are generally beneficial for population management in defining expectations of typical behavior. However, better understanding as to how individual variance in behavior interfaces with management actions, such as control of...
Pet Reptiles: A Potential Source of Transmission of Multidrug-Resistant Salmonella
| Contributor(s):: Clara Marin, Laura Lorenzo-Rebenaque, Omar Laso, José Villora-Gonzalez, Santiago Vega
Salmonella spp. is widely considered one of the most important zoonotic pathogens worldwide. The close contact between reptiles and their owners provides favourable conditions for the transmission of zoonotic pathogen infections, and ∼6% of human salmonellosis cases are acquired after...

What Can We Do for Amphibians and Reptiles at Schools? Between Personal Conceptions, Conceptual Change and Students' Pro-Environmental Attitudes
| Contributor(s):: Zofia Anna Chylenska, Eliza Rybska
Students’ conceptions and conceptual change are deeply investigated phenomena, and the results of such studies can be implemented in the didactic process. For this research, amphibians and reptiles were chosen, because they are animals which are significant for ecosystems but at the same...
