Dear colleagues,

after the successfully held 1st Scientific and Professional Meeting on Reptiles "REPTILIA", it is our great honor to invite You to the thematically expanded 2nd International Scientific and Professional Meeting on Reptiles and Exotic Animals "REPTILIA" that will be held online on May 21st – 22nd, 2021 in organization by the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Zagreb and sponsored by the Zagreb Zoo.

As exotic animals become more and more present as patients in veterinary practice, there is a growing need to know and understand all aspects of their life, their biology, morphology, physiology, nutrition, pathology and treatment of diseases. Knowledge of the above could contribute to a better understanding of those animals and exchange of experience in veterinary medicine, but also to the education of future doctors of veterinary medicine. Therefore, the goal of this symposium is to bring together scientists and experts from the biomedical and natural sciences and to provide as much information as possible on reptiles, but also on other exotic animals such as insects, amphibians, fish, birds and mammals.
