    Barney T Reed

    PAGES 84 pages

    LANGUAGE English


    The purpose of this report is:

    • to draw together previous research undertaken and recommendations made, in order to illustrate areas of both consensus and inconsistency;
    • to highlight potential welfare and ethical concerns relating to the supply, housing and care of adult Xenopus laevisfrogs;
    • to facilitate understanding of Xenopus laevis behaviour and a subsequent improved appreciation of their requirements;
    • to arrive, where possible, at consensus based on available data and sound scientific argument for optimal environmental and care conditions forkeeping Xenopus laevis frogs;
    • to provide some basic recommendations for improving health, welfare and egg quality, for reducing the potential for stress and suffering and possibly,the total number of animals required;
    • in areas where current knowledge is sparse or inconclusive, to stimulate discussion that will enable movement towards identifying what should beregarded as ‘best practice’
