I started my interest of reptiles and amphibians at a young age. My
friends would want to play hide and seek in the woods, I would be
trying to get them to look for snakes. They would usually go off
their own way and I would be herping alone. The facination of
reptiles started with simple stuff (garter snake, rough green snake,
grey treefrogs, box turtles, and native species). Now my collection
consist of many animals, but my favorite are my large monitor
lizards, pythons, tortoises, and various snakes.
