I do not have a biology degree. What I do have is a passion and a lifelong fascination with amphibians and reptiles. I also have many years (over 25 as of this post) field experience with wild herps ; data collection, participation in state and private studies, and also several years of caring for zoo collections. I am currently focused on educating the public about herps – especially snakes – through social media and in person.

Thanks for reading!

Oh, I almost forgot…
