When you’re getting married, you don’t want anyone to feel left out. But you can’t invite everyone you’ve ever met either. List your guests under “Must”, “Want”, and “Should” to ensure the right people make it.

This is the saddest story I have ever heard. Well okay, that’s an exaggeration. It’s pretty sad, though. A classic good news / bad news tale.

This is BS! I have raised bearded dragons for well over a quarter century. I have not seen any change in gender of offspring regardless of temperature of incubation! No indication whatsoever!. It is true that crocodiles do change gender with temperature. But I have never seen or heard of this being a basis of gender with bearded dragons. This is a silly small sample to make any generalization about. it is Junk Science. Tailored to titillate the masses with no substantial proof. Fluff and no substance. In a word - BS!

Kenyan Sand Boas may have been the inspiration for the Tremors film but these snakes are ANYTHING but monsters.

"Why do you want to know at what temperature a body fully cremates?" I'm a writer.

Storing bodies in the attic is impractical.

A cheese plate is a beautiful thing. But if you’re unskilled in the kitchen, you may not know what goes into creating one. To make it easier, remember this mnemonic device: “Something old, something new, something goat, and something blue.”

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.
