Dear all,

On Thursday November 7th 2002 I will be presenting a lecture entitled "Newts and Salamanders of Great Britain". The lecture is part of the Bristol Naturalists Society's winter program. It commences at 7 pm, with a break for tea/coffee at 8pm, and then the conclusion of the talk followed by a questions and answers session until about 9pm. I would of course enjoy any informal discussion after the lecture.

The venue for the lecture is the Guide Association Hall, Westmoreland Road, Redland, Bristol BS6 6YW, England. Here is an online map if you need directions.

The lecture will consist of an introduction to newts and salamanders, an outline of their natural history and discussion of the three native species as well as other species that have been introduced into Britain. There will be numerous photos and information (protection status, endangered species, species differentiation, etc). I will also bring along a living exhibit for those interested (probably an asian species).

Entrance is free, but the Society appreciates donations from non-members.

If you are interested in coming but need directions (see the map above for some help) or info on somewhere to stay, etc, don't hesitate to email me.

Kind Regards,

John

Well this went very well indeed. It went on for 2 hours with some very interesting questions and a very good audience. All of you UK enthusiasts should be ashamed of yourselves for missing out

Heh, I doubt I'll be talking in Doncaster, but if it happens, I'll let you know.

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
