Pet survey - Win an iPad


Reptile survey

Do you own a frog, lizard, snake or turtle/tortoise?


Rodent survey

Do you own a rat, mouse, guinea pig or ferret?

If you are 10 years or older and own a reptile or amphibian or a small animal, please consider completing an online survey. Let us know the pet-care practices you use to keep your pets safe and healthy. It should take approximately 20-40 minutes to complete.

Complete the survey and be in the running for a free iPad.

Your input will allow us to determine the different ways in which owners meet the needs of their pets, providing the first data of this kind in Victoria. Participation is anonymous and completely voluntary. For reptile/amphibian owners, participation in the survey will not affect your license renewals now or in the future.

If you are under 18 years of age, you’ll need to ask your parent/guardian for permission to participate. If you are aged 10 to 14 years, you may want to have an adult help you fill out the survey.

If you have any questions, please email the Chief Investigator, Associate Professor Pauleen Bennett, at
