FBH Enclosure sizes 

The Federation of British Herpetologists (FBH) released a document in May 2022 providing information on a set of recommended minimum enclosure sizes. PRAS was involved in producing the document and supports the document, which hopefully is something we can all work towards.


Check out the document here.


IHS Bearded dragon care 

Bearded dragons are one of the most commonly kept pet reptiles in the UK. They're active, charismatic and generally sociable lizards so it's easy to see why they make good pets. The International Herpetological Society (IHS) has put together a good care sheet.

Download the care sheet here.


IHS Royal python care 

As with bearded dragons, Royal pythons are very commonly kept snakes in the UK and they make great pets.


The IHS care sheet for royal pythons can be downloaded here.
