I grew up catching toads out of the local gullies and sewers, so I've always been interested in herps, but my parents never allowed me to keep one as a pet. Then I became an adult and moved out!
It all started when I was baby sitting my brother's beardie for him. I went to the reptile store to get some crikets, and saw the ball pythons. I did my reserch, gave my fish to a friend, and had my new bp by the end of the week. And the rest is history!
