  • hello everyone here's a little about me

    Where to begin. I am a biologist by education and hobby (sometimes I even get paid). I left my career 5 years ago to persue happiness and found that happiness in my herps. I am currently working on behavioral and genetic studies of cresties. I have recently started some comparitive studies as well and have added chahoua, leachies, gargoyles and saras to my study group. I do educational programs for childern and adults as well as teach 7th grade genetics. My pets include: 2 dogs, 1 mouse, 2 beardies, 3 gargoyles, 2 leachies, 2 chahoua, 1 sara, lots and lots of cresteds, 10 leopard geckos, 2 AFT's, 1 central american banded gecko. 1 tarantula, 1 pac man frog, 1 waxy monkey tree frog, 3 fire belly newts, 3 fire belly toads, 1 african clawed frog, 1 blue tonge skink, two turtles, 6 AGB's, and one 13-year-old human. I think I got everyone.


    here is me:

    just kidding, here is a really bad pic of the real me:

      Nice to meet you.

      Thanks for introducing yourself, Kim. That's quite a collection you've got there, no wonder you're letting a few go ; ) Good for you for sharing herps with our next generation, I haven't met a child yet that isn't at least curious when they see a Crested Gecko for the first time. Anytime you'd like to share what you've discovered about Crested Genetics , I'm like Ross Perot over here.(all ears) lol. Welcome to You and your sidekick.
