Stress, fear and frustration can be very difficult to observe or measure in reptiles. Transportation, handling and poor husbandry can all lead to stress, fear and frustration. Reptiles are a large, diverse group with both predator and prey species; aquatic, terrestrial and semi-aquatic species. Reptiles also vary significantly in their ability to signal changes in emotional state. The webinar looks at reptile species commonly kept as companion animals in the UK, including snakes, lizards and tortoises, and ways of reducing fear and frustration in a captive environment. We will also discuss the suitability of Reptiles as pets in terms of welfare, sustainability; owner commitment and expectations.

The recording will be available straight after purchase. You will also receive a link direct to the webinar replay in the purchase confirmation email.

Please note: APBC and SPEAKERS CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY TECHNICAL FAILING IN THE RESULTING RECORDING. Purchases of webinar recordings are not refundable.
