A Letter from Steve

When I was a very young boy, one of my first pets was a big green tree frog. It used to live on top of my digital clock enjoying the tiny bit of warmth that it produced. That tree frog could eat a whole mouse and would sit there with just the tail hanging out of its mouth for ages. Quite amazing!

From there I went on to keep bigger and better reptiles and amphibians as pets. Eventually my mother refused to go into my room, not knowing what she would find in there.

I spent most of my youth out in the bush looking for reptiles, observing them in their habitat and reading as much as I could about them. My father used to say that if I devoted as much time to my school work as I did to studying reptiles, I would be a genius. I may not be a genius but I sure learned a lot just doing something I loved.

As a boy I remember wanting to learn everything I could about reptiles. As a man, that dream goes on.
