ERAS 2014 Fall Show and Sale

ERAS 2014 Spring Show and Sale

The eggs are done hatching, and the hatchlings are ready to find their new forever homes!
The ERAS Fall Show and Sale is right around the corner!

The time has almost arrived for the ERAS to host it's second reptile show and sale of the year. Two days jam packed with all the reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates that you and your family can handle. There will plenty of vendors on hand with quality captive bred animals for show and sale, as well as the supplies you will need to take care of any that happen to find their way home with you.
This is a family friendly event, so bring the kids, and come prepared to learn some new and interesting things about these animals and the hobby of keeping them in captivity.

To get a sneak peek at the vendors that are expected to be at the show check this discussion in the forums.

More info about the show can be found on the Expo page.



Are You Practicing Proper Quarantine Procedures?

It's always exciting to acquire a new animal, and expand a collection, but do you practice proper quarantine procedures before introducing the new acquisition to the rest of your collection?
It is a very necessary, but often overlooked practice.
Maybe this is because of inexperience, or perhaps despite a wealth of years of experience, you've decided to skip quarantine this time because your new addition comes from a trusted source. Unfortunately there are numerous pathogens/parasites that could remain dormant until the right stress conditions allow them to take over a host while the immune system is compromised. This can have devastating and unexpectated consequences to your collection.

To read more about quarantine procedures, and get in on the discussion, head on over to the forums.





Do you know the ERAS Mission Statement?

OBJECTIVE: The Edmonton Reptile and Amphibian Society (ERAS) was founded in 1994. Our objectives are the promotion of the study and conservation of reptiles and amphibians and the facilitation of communication between society members. These goals are to be met through the publication of a society journal, the procuring of lecturers in herpetology, and the provision of opportunities for members to meet and discuss herpetological topics.
