Rearing Haaniella scabra

An article that I have written on the rearing of Haaniella scabra will be in the next issue of Practical Reptile Keeping, available on the 30th December. The advice can be used to rear most other Haaniella species successfully.

I encourage you all to go out and buy it.

Invertebrate Rearing journal

The website for the new journal, Invertebrate Rearing, has seen some recent improvements. I have added submission guidelines, and the ability to get e-mail notification of journal issues.

All you have to do is head over to Invertebrate Rearing, register an account, and then click the link to manage your subscriptions.

We have already received submissions for the first issue, but could do with a few more. Articles can now also be submitted online, so get your fingers out and start typing.
