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