This course is intended for professionals that work with reptiles and amphibians in the wild (conservation), zoos, captive care and research programs. The aim of this course is to give you a better understanding of the anatomy and physiology as well as to train skills related to i.e. clinical examination, husbandry and diseases of reptiles and amphibians.
The first day will focus on the zoological aspects, in which the diversity, the anatomy and physiology of several organ systems as well as evolutionary and developmental topics will be discussed. The aim is to provide a good overview of amphibian and reptile biology. At the end of the day you will be able to describe the anatomy and important physiological processes of reptiles and amphibians in the wild and captive.
During the second day, herpetology experts will teach you specialized skills, care and husbandry related to these animals. Anesthesia, chemical restraint and pain management will be central topics. Dedicated expert pathologists and clinicians will give you pathophysiologic insights into the diseases of reptiles and amphibians. You will be able to gain an increased understanding of the gross lesions, as well as the presenting clinical signs, pathogenetic mechanisms as well as the appropriate differential diagnosis for a wide range of diseases. Legal aspects and policy matters will be included.
