We are looking for people who have first hand knowledge of a species to write the page for that species. We would like articles which have a personal touch rather than pages that are paraphrasing's of various books and articles. We welcome anecdotal information, field observations, husbandry and breeding information. (Plagiarism? is not acceptable of course :)

If you do not write HTML code, don't worry about it. I can convert the articles from most common formats into HTML code and add the picture links where specified. I will be happy to do some editing, but articles which are loaded with grammatical errors, factual errors or which are just poorly written will be returned.

While we want the pages to be scientifically correct, we are not looking for scientific articles. We are looking for pages which will be informative and interesting to most readers. This is a site developed by hobbyists for all types of users including rather than only scientists or experts . This is not to say that we don't welcome pages from university or research people. We do. Our first "volunteer" was Dr. Adam Britton, the crocodilian specialist. We just don't want the articles to be bogged down with scientific data rather than information which will be more meaningful, interesting and helpful to the average visitor.

For many of the more obscure species we will be lacking pictures. Good quality digital pictures of species which we do not have can be sent to John Fowler.

If you want to write a page, email John Fowler and tell him which species and also tell him a bit about yourself and why you feel qualified to write up that species.

Thanks.

John Fowler
