Habitat loss and the threat of extinction are significant concerns in the world of reptillian life.

Reptile Day promotes awareness of all things reptillian, encouraging learning about different types of reptiles, their natural environments and ecological challenges.

At the GSPCA we rescue, reunite, rehabilitate and rehome reptiles of all descriptions.

In the last year we have seen snakes to tortoise, turtle to lizards, terrapins and others some of which have been wild and others captive.

Only last week the Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle Movie was released.


GSPCA warn please don't rush out for a turtle or terrapin after seeing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie

Many children will be very excited about the release of Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

As fantastic as many of these films can be for Animal Welfare Organisations they can cause all sorts of problems.

From 101 Dalmatians to the Chipmunks, Lassie to Toto from the Wizard of Oz there are many films and programmes that have influenced people to impluse adopt or buy species and breeds of animals.
