Dear Xenopus Community,
I am a researcher at the University of Chester where we are interested in the housing and husbandry of Xenopus laevis. We would very much appreciate your help in completing a short survey on the housing of X. laevis, the results of which will help to guide our research.
The survey can be found by following the link below and should take between 5-10 minutes to complete. All data will be treated anonymously. None of the questions are compulsory, although obviously we'd appreciate as much information as possible. Thank you in advance for your help.
Whilst a similar study was published around 15 years ago, a number of guides and protocols have since been published (e.g. Reed, 2005; Koustubhan et al, 2008; Green, 2009) and we anticipate that some aspects of housing are likely to have changed in the intervening years. As we are interested in current X. laevis housing and husbandry protocols there are no right or wrong answers. The information you provide will help to direct our research, allowing us to focus on areas where more clarification is needed.
About us - The Amphibian Behaviour & Endocrinology group at the University of Chester is interested in the welfare and conservation of amphibian species. We are currently conducting research into the housing and husbandry of Xenopus laevis (funded by the NC3Rs - http://www.nc3rs.org.uk/). Should you wish any further information about the survey or our group, please email me at a.holmes at chester.ac.uk<mailto:a.holmes at chester.ac.uk>. Thank you once again for any help you can provide us.
Yours faithfully,
Andrew Holmes
