November 2016

Bio-active vivariums aren’t just for dart frogs anymore! If you follow current trends in reptile and amphibian husbandry, you’ve probably noticed the growing interest in applying bio-active enclosures to a wide variety of herps.

Creating the most natural home for your herp pet is made easier with some expert advice and instruction, which is what John Mederski of Avalon Exotics will provide at the November meeting of the WNY Herp Society (Reptile Club).

Based in Buffalo NY, Avalon Exotics has been building custom vivariums and breeding dart frogs since 2007. At the meeting, John will be sharing some of the tips and techniques he has learned in nine years of professional bio-active vivarium design. He wil also demonstrate the steps used to plan and build a bio-active enclosure applicable to many reptiles and amphibians.

WNY Herp Society meetings are free and open to the public, and families with kids are welcome to attend. After the speaker has concluded, you’re invited to stay and chat with other herp enthusiasts, catch up with old friends, and meet new ones.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their herp pets with them to show off and share with an admiring audience! If you do plan to bring a herp pet, please be sure to read the guidelines for safely bringing reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates to the meeting

We hope to see you at the November meeting to learn all about creating your very own bio-active vivarium!
