“I first got into reptile’s as a young teen around 29 years ago. I have since found out, the Bearded Dragon I was given from a local village Pet Shop, was one of the first few in the UK (there were no large Pet Stores back then at all).
Since that day, I have always had a Bearded Dragon in my life. As well as snakes, frogs, rats, mice, pretty much all gecko types, and of course, my beloved Chameleons.

Currently, my Facebook groups Chameleon Network, Bearded Dragons Network , Snake Network , Amphibian Network , Lizard Network, tend to keep me extremely busy.
I also attend many reptile meets & talks around the country. I’m also often asked to do talks or write-ups on various subjects, and have been published a number of times in the likes of ‘Practical Reptile Keeping’ magazine, in the UK. Because, like many, I absolutely love the subject of reptiles and Amphibians.

We are all always learning, regardless of experience, In a hobby that is constantly evolving regarding methods, science, and equipment used.
I honestly believe, people need to ask more questions. Then even question those answers given. So joining a set-up like ‘The Reptile Apartment’, where collective minds allow these methods and facts to be shared. This will benefit all keepers and Reptiles alike.”
