Eric Roscoe is the Event and Education Coordinator for Madison Area Herpetological Society
Eric Roscoe graduated in December 2010 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology with an emphasis on herpetology. He has always been interested in all animals, but particularly reptiles and amphibians, since the age of five. For him, it all started when he found his first garter snake at a petting zoo in Wisconsin, which kicked off his interest in reptiles. From there, he had always wanted a snake of his own, and for his sixth birthday, finally got one. After that, he began frequenting reptile sections of bookstores, local pet stores, and reptile shows. One thing simply lead to another for him. Although he has many reptiles and amphibians he likes, his greatest interest and passion first and foremost are for big snakes (such as Burmese pythons and Reticulated pythons), as well as many medium-sized species such as carpet and blood pythons, boas, and much more.
