WELCOME to the Cyberlizard site, home of the Cyberlizard Reptile Pages and a host of other stuff, somehow vaguely related (amphibians, music, cult TV and some heavier items). From 1998 this site was hosted by Direct Connection (as it then was) at www.nafcon.dircon.co.uk, but we moved to PlusNet in 2005 for a couple of reasons, one of which was the more generous webspace allocation. PlusNet were a good and reliable provider, but we moved to Heart Internet after 2013 because we felt we needed even more webspace, mainly because the site had grown exponentially and also because we may add further features, such as an online database, in the future.
Suffice it to say that in the period of over twenty years since we started this site, much has changed, not only in the realms of technology but also in areas such as zoological nomenclature (ie species names!). When we started out, everyone was using 56k modems, Netscape was a favoured web browser and features such as frames were popular. Likewise in the realms of herpetology, changes have come thick and fast, which in most ways is admirable but which does also make keeping up to date a real headache. In addition some changes to species names are sometimes controversial and occasionally reversed – all extra work for the webmaster. We try to be as accurate as possible, and give sources for our information, but we do not make any claims to infallibility or exhaustiveness.
This is primarily a site dedicated to the care of reptiles and amphibians, plus some natural history and care of other animals such as rodents, with a secondary emphasis on music, films, books, games and cult TV. If you are at all interested in where we stand on life's big questions, go to Weightier Matters on the home page. Specifically reptile-related issues (such as the standard of care provided by certain big stores or the debate over the RSPCA) are dealt with on the reptile pages.
Please have a browse through the site or search through what interests you.
