Re: species maintenance--where to start

Contact Art Leuterman or Tom Grady and tell them you want to volunteer.
Wright Huntley might be another person to talk with, although I don't
know if he has room for another breeder in his core species program
right now (ask him). Even if he doesn't have stock for another breeder
now, he might have some in the future, and it would probably make his
job easier to have another dedicated breeder lined up.
From what I gather, many of these "endangered" (in the hobby at least)
species are not necessarily the ones that are hard to breed. They are
often the ones that have been around for a long time, proved easy to
breed, became common, and then people moved on to other things and let
them go (if I am wrong on this interpretation, please correct me).
Talk to you later.
