Colin opened the meeting and thanked members for attending despite the particularly inclement weather and quickly ran through the club business. Colin mentioned that the date for the KAS meal at Amritsar in Kirkcaldy has now been changed to Dec 15th and that a sheet for people to put there names down was now up in the club. Gordon McLeod has brought in a sponsorship form for Movember which is taking part in anyone wishing to sponsor Gordon in his worthy efforts can give the money to either Gordon or a committee member to pass on to him.
Tonight’s guest speaker was Mr Terry Scott who provided a fascinating and well received talk on reptiles. Terry brought with him a number of Snakes including Boa’s Pythons and Corn Snakes and reptiles such as a Bearded Dragon and a Skink. Terry’s comprehensive talk covered subjects such as setting up a environment for the reptiles where he cautioned against the use of barks containing sap as well as the importance of ensuring the temperature is stable and does not rise excessively as the reptiles can tolerate cooler temperatures but are at risk if it rises to far.
Terry then moved on to discuss diseases and general husbandry of reptiles and answered questions. The meeting then adjourned for refreshments. Tonight’s meeting was very well attended and KAS would like to thank Terry for a excellent evening and look forward to him returning next year.
Next week is a round table meeting.
