More to the point, what *isn't* sci.bio.herp?

There are two herp newsgroups, this one and sci.bio.herp.  The latter is, as
its name suggests, about the science of herpetology.  It typically features
discussions on field techniques, taxonomy, and other subjects of interest to
the (scientific) herpetological community.

Many rec.pets.herp readers find it interesting to follow sci.bio.herp as well,
and occasionally one of us will have a question that's better posted there.
For instance, if you're curious about the recent taxonomic revision of the
python family, sci.bio.herp is a good place to ask for information.

However, sci.bio.herp is *not* an appropriate place to ask about pet keeping.
Historically, sci.bio.herp has had problems with postings that really belong
in rec.pets.herp.  "My ball python won't eat" is very much a rec.pets.herp
subject, for example, and the sci.bio.herp folks have gotten understandably
tired of it.
