  • Most of you probably already know of me...

    But I thought I'd introduce myself, and share a few things you may not know about me.
    My name is Andrew Gilpin, and I keep a variety of reptiles, mostly Uroplatus and Rhacodactylus. I live in Iowa City, IA, and am 21.
    I'm currently a mechanic, and do quite a bit of automotive window tinting on the side as well.
    I've got a degree in parks and natural resources ( which I haven't really put to use yet), enjoy aggressive rollerblading, unicycling ( yeah... that's right, the one wheeled bike thingy), anything to do with reptiles, building furniture quality cages, and spending time with my fiance Sarah.
    Here are a few photos
    first, me....

    a skating picture

    an example of the cages I build, this one is for one of my U. henkeli pairs.

    and who doesn't want to see a gecko photo?... one of my female U. sikorae

    I've been around the forum a bit, but mostly read what is going on, there are just TOO many reptile forums to participate in all of them! I like what Matt has done with the site, and it looks like you've got a great community of people around here.

      thanks man, you should see some of the video clips!
      Here are a few more



      thanks for the compliments on the cage too, I really like the way they look all decked out like that. Unfortunately I can't have all of my animals in cages like that.

        Hey Andrew good to see you here buddy. I used to skate and had a nice pair of K2 Fatty's is that a reverse pornstar in the first pic?

          Welcome to the forum, Andrew! Nice skating shots! Wish I could do that... but I'd bust my face (or my bum). Lol.

          Beautiful enclosure!

            Eli, The first skating photo I posted is what we call a 'tabernacle' but there are a few other names for it as well. K2 fatty's were a revolution in rollerblading design, they started most of the crazy stuff off!

            Sarah, thanks for the compliments, as for things that have been busted, my face has not been included, but just about everything else you can think of has! ( not literally broken, just pretty messed up!)
