Record-keeping is an essential part of any forensic investigation. Cases involving reptiles and amphibians are no exception. All such records are to be considered as evidence and must be fully accountable in a chain of custody. Equally, the documentation of samples is vital, from the earliest point of entry into an investigation. Strict adherence to these basic principles will ensure that the evidence, when presented, will withstand scrutiny of both its integrity and transparency.
