About

Introduction
I am currently studying for my BSc Zoology and hoping to go on to specialize in Herpetology, a subject that I have always loved. I am also a member of the British Herpetological Society (BHS) and was recently elected as Secretary for the Cambridge and Peterborough Amphibian and Reptile Group (CPARG).

Question
So UV lighting is seen as essential to a lot of captive lizards species, though there is still much debate as to whether it is beneficial to captive snake species as well. It is not viewed as a necessity in captive snake species, but I was wondering whether any research had been carried out as to possible benefits of providing UV in captivity. Thanks in advance.
Question
I have been looking into tracking the movements of some grass snakes around the Cambridge area, could anyone suggest a non-invasive method for this that would also enable me to track them after having been through a body of water?
