Nothing much happens in the Eastern Cape. Where are you from? Add this to your profile as well.

BV i totally disagree with you, breeders like myself and others down here, are involved in large herping communities in the Eastern Cape...we also have some really fantastic reptiles in our areas, some of the best looking boomslang, puffies, Olive House Snakes and Southern Brown Eggeaters as well as the Holy Grail of Bitis, the Albany Adder in EC, we also have some great Herp Clubs, so bud give me a shout and i will hook you up to a club or other herpers in your area in the Eastern Cape.

The only thing lacking in these parts is Reptile Expo's and that is purely due to our strict conservation laws concerning Indigenous and excotics reptiles, but alot of great herpers in these parts without a doubt, pm me if you need help..

Observations from the Eastern Cape on this site have been few and far between and I'm not sure why but I hope that's about to change. Spread the word.

Well Sly I am glad my prodding worked. How are we supposed to know what is going on there if you do not post about it? You only have yourselves to blame.

Now post pictures and reports about what you do and we will all be in awe of the involvement the herpers in the EC.

GABOON - I think you might be surprised when you see an albanica in person.

Ive even seen pics of fairly patterned inornata.

I might just do that Constrictor girl, we go down there over December and it would be nice to go do some herping.
