Hello to my fellow brits, and any1 else who decided to read this, just wondering if anybody wants to arrange to go down to
Sheerness in kent as there dockyard wall has a large colony of euscorpius flavicaudis living in it, and we could collect some Very Happy i dont think there protected at all as there not classed as a british species oficially.

I moved the topic to Events and Gathering but kept a shadow topic since it kinda fits both.


*Edit. It was kinda hard to see the shadow topic so I moved it back here and the shadow is in events and gatherings.

grass snakes have been found in scotland there just extremely rare there because your weather is worse than ours, thats what we should do arange a full day, during the day time we look for the adder,grass snakes,smooth snake,slow worms and the sand lizards, then at night try find the scorpion lol

PostSubject: Re: British members   7/29/2008, 8:09 pm

lol thats true, the problem in england is we dont have many reptiles and our only scorpion isnt really british either lol,

this is all we have Adder (Vipera berus), Grass Snake (Natrix natrix), Smooth Snake(Coronella austriaca), Slow-worm (Anguis fragilis)
Common Lizard (Zootoca vivipara), Sand Lizard (Lacerta agilis)
and that is all lmao, i would love to find a slow worm but your not really allowed to do anything with them, they are protected by law now.

and thats a good idea lady, we should arange something like that lol, every british member gathers once a year, ( probably resulting in getting wasted )
oh and anyone else that happens to be in england at the time too lol

lol @ lycanlord! yeah making a weekend of it sounds good. but i recon we will find more than we bargained on because our climate is warming up and more and more escpaed scorps are surviving in the wild.

Saw LOADS of sand lizards the other week at stocks reservoir near clithero. Was nearly standing on the little fella's. Was so nice to see such a large colony. I recon if we left a few small corrigated metal sheets over the place 1st thing in the morning and went back to check them in a few hours (after one or two beers!) you'd find loads of our few but beautiful reptiles there. And it's practically on our doorstep!

i just went to cornwall for 3 days and the new forest for 3 and the only cool enough inverts i could find to keep Very Happy were:
1 voilet ground beetle, and.... well thats it for the inverts...
nice place there though! i got enough frogs and newts from a natural pond i found in cornwall to re-populate my pond (and a few newts will go in a fishtank).

!!WRONG!!
you can keep slow worms
the law states that you can walk out into your garden with a bucket and fill it with slowworms and keep all of them, without breaking the law.
you cannot sell/trade any slowworms (dead or alive).
the only exeption to this rule is hard to explain... if you keep 2 male and female,wild caught, pairs of slow worms in seperate viv's and they each have 10 babys. if you then wait 5 years for the babys of both broods to mature and then breed one male and one female from each captive bred brood together and they have babys you can legaly sell the babys of the captive bred slowworms.... Very Happy


this meeting up thing sounds great but...its the thing my parents (and probably a lot of other parents) always warn me about... "dont ever meet up with anyone you have met on the internet and dont actualy know!! you never know who is behind the computer!"...........
so yea...it will be hard to get a yes from them... but anyway, when and where are you planing to meet and for how long...and what should i bring other than containers and blacklight??? Very Happy Very Happy

sorry i ment to say smooth snake as they are protected to the point where it is illegal to disturb them as there are approx only 300-400 left. But just to ad i never said you couldnt keep them, i said theres not much you can do with them. lol!

not sure where we are having it yet will be subject to research between now and then. and yes a blacklight would be of use!

personally i will probably be making a family thing of it, if we do a sort of camping weekend. which will include my husband and 3 kids. appreciate the rule of not meeting people off the internet there are some weirdo's out there. so the younger of the SF crowd may not be able to attend. however thats why i suggested we may possibly make this an annual meet up. make it more official. that way when the younger members get older will be attending an established meet up... a record and pictures would be posted here on SF.

yea that is the best idea, lol bringing the kids along would make me laugh, i already have images of them running around ignoring you lol as for the research, its mainly the best area to go to that we need to know really, either way the south of england is going to be the best idea. so that narrows it down a little bit, i think the best areas are probably kent and cornwall. i know cornwall is good for reptiles, we found some sand lizards last time we were there.

well anita and connor absolutly love looking for minibeasts, they would really enjoy it... may have to get eleanor looked after though. All my kids have been brought up with various tropical animals since they were born. Anita loves finding house spider so we can tell her which one it is.

Lol it wouldn't surprise me if they found more than we did hehehehe!
