These jellyfish relatives can pack a punch, but they're also fascinating creatures.

Cool article 
Did you know a cactus could droop? I didn’t until I killed one. Some plants are hardier than others, but if you’re anything like me, the only plant that survives under your thumb is an artificial one. Habitual plant killers, here’s where we go wrong.

Nobody likes mosquitoes, but the mosquitoes sure do love us. Spraying your skin with DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus keeps them at bay, but stores are full of wristbands, candles, clothing, and other products that claim to repel bugs without those nasty “chemicals.” Some of them might help, but none are reliable.

LOL they should figure out why people like myself are not attractive to mosquitoes and bottle it. Mosquitoes never bite me for some body chemistry reason or other.

Captive wildlife can be a notoriously difficult field to get into, and zoo keeping is a highly competitive career within that field. In order to determine what prepares one for a career in zoo keeping and makes them a desirable applicant, I interviewed some keepers from Henry Vilas Zoo in ...

You want the best for your dog, and that includes finding the right type of collar for them. Since they’ll wear it often, you want something that is comfortable, but also safe and secure. Here are the best collars for most dogs as well as which collars you may want to stay away from.

Ugh. No coffee at home.
I'm going to have to attempt driving un-caffeinated. May God have mercy on their souls.

Story
Tagline
"It's not a desire; it's an obsession to share my knowledge with people interested in herpetoculture."
Introduction

I currently own and operate the Reptile Apartment Group of Websites. HerpHouseMag is a 100% Green and Subscriber supported digital #reptiles magazine. Reptile Apartment is the original site 'hatching' out later into Reptile Apartment Canada. This wasn't before 'hatching' Reptile Livingroom 1.0 which has recently become Reptile Livingroom 2.0 Live! This is a joint operation between ColdBlooded Publishing and HerpHouseMag as well as the entire Reptile Apartment Group.

I've also done some freelance work regarding reptiles and have been published numerous times in magazines such as Reptilia, Reptiles, Reptiles USA, Reptile Care, and TFH Publishing who published my original Uromastyx manuscript. I'm the former Founder of Southern California Wildlife, and am an amateur herpetologist, and expert on San Diego-based reptiles and their habitat. Additionally, I have extensive experience with exotic species from all over the world. I have worked within the pet industry for over a decade and served as Editor for the San Diego Herpetological Society. I've personally handled well over 200 various species.  

My main goal is to educate people regarding #reptiles period. There's just too much inaccurate information out there. I focus on living in small environments, primarily apartments, on the unique challenges of keeping a reptile or insects within these smaller spaces. There’s an alarming lack of actionable data on this topic and a lack of information or an abundance of misinformation is impacting the quality of life for reptiles and insects everywhere.
