The course's modules
Reptilia (The Reptiles)
This module provides an introduction to reptiles in general and Southern African reptiles in particular.
Chelonia (Shield Reptiles)
In these three components, we examine the shield reptiles, commonly known as the tortoises and terrapins. We begin with an introduction to the group and follow with two components inspecting these animals at the species level. Since we restrict this course to those endemic to the Lowveld region, we discuss six tortoise species and four terrapin species.
Crocodiles, Monitor Lizards and Chameleons
In this component, we look at the larger reptiles. We explore an Introduction to Crocodiles, the Nile Crocodile, Monitor Lizards, the Nile Monitor, the Rock Monitor, Chameleons in general, the Flap-neck Chameleon and the Transvaal Dwarf Chameleon.
Serpentes (The Snakes)
This is the main module of the course. 10 components that closely explore the snake families before delving into 68 species accounts representing the snake biodiversity of the Highveld and Lowveld regions of South Africa.
First Aid for Snakebite
In this module, we refer the student to the leaders in snakes and snakebite, The African Snakebite Institute.
