Born and raised in Hartland, NB. Just moved to BC though. I found that, unfortunatly, there was very little interest in reptiles that I could find in NB... Don't know about the rest of the maritimes though. I was the only person within like 100 mile radius that I knew of the kept them. It sucked, that's one of the big reasons I moved to BC. Good luck with finding some great people that share the interest! This is deffinitly the place to be asking around!
