 Lol couldn't remember how to add an image so...|1. What do fisherman commonly call this organism?
2. What anatomical feature classifies the species of this organism?
3. How many chromosomes does this organism have? 
4. Which class is this organism in?
The link takes you directly to a page where it shows the name of the organism ;)
There's a reason why I didn't even try to have you guys ID it, since 1, I know it's not that difficult to figure out, and 2, wiki clearly shows it.

Conger eel as well as congo eel I think would be acceptable answers.

What is wrong with this snake, if anything?
What is the mortality rate of this condition?
How, if at all, can it be spread?

Fungal infection

Spread through soil?

The actual name of the disease is Snake Fungal Disease
And yes, it is spread through contaminated soil being tracked around.
your turn!

While we're on the topic of reptile diseases:

Image

1) What is the name of the condition of this tortoise?
2) Suppose you notice this in your pet tortoise. What are two possible issues in your animal husbandry that you should check for/address to prevent further development of the condition?
3) How can this condition be reversed?

1) pyramiding
2) it's usually a sign of nutrition issues (too much protein/calcium)- not sure if that's what you were going for
3) it's irreversible

1. Pyramiding 
2. Excessive protein consumption & inadequate calcium intake 
3. Pyramiding cannot be reversed

For number 2, you are correct. I think the question was a bit unclear; there are many factors that can contribute to the nutrition issues themselves. One possible cause is a lack of UVB lighting, so there are multiple things that could cause this issue to arise.
Your turn!
