This subject covers the general principles of the management of reptiles in captivity. The general principles of housing, husbandry, nutrition, diet, breeding, and health and disease will be examined for each of the reptilian groups. These studies will lead into more specialised studies of selected groups including enrichment, captive breeding for conservation including reintroduction case studies, and the care and rehabilitation of injured reptiles.
