A woman in The Heights in Houston, Tex had her snakes confiscated by authorities on the assumption that she could not properly care for them, and a KHOU Texas news reporter flamed the story by calling the snakes dangerous, venomous snakes in his news report, when in fact the snakes were pythons and constrictors. We've got the details here:

Always thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water after handling your reptiles and their food. That is just common sense and is also the recommendation of the FDA as a salmonella outbreak that has sickened close to 40 people in 18 states has been traced back to frozen feeder mice used to feed snakes and other reptiles.

 There is a new species of salamander on the block!  What is unique about this particular species, the streambed salamander (Eurycea subfluvicola), is the fact that it does not lose its gills but rather "retains aquatic larval juvenile characteristics into adulthood unlike most other salamanders that lose their gills and metamorphose before adulthood." Learn more about its discovery here: http://www.reptilesmagazine.com/New-Salamander-Species-Discovered-in-Arkansas/

The island night lizard, a lizard that can only be found on the Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California, has been removed from the Endangered Species List, after nearly 40 years of protections. The lizard's populations have recovered so much that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recommended last year that it be removed from the list.
