Our History

Fortunately, I was introduced to the fascinating world of reptiles and amphibians at an early age. As a youngster, at any one point in time, you could find five or more terrariums in my room containing anoles, iguanas, snakes, plated lizards, tree frogs, newts, monitors, toads, frogs, bearded dragons, geckos, turtles, and salamanders.

In fact, I used to pay for all the animals I kept by mowing lawns and selling baseball cards. I would then ride my bike to the drug store, get a money order, and mail it to whichever reptile company I was ordering from at the time. Those were days that helped form the bedrock of a lifetime zeal for reptiles and amphibians.

Our Support Team

Our nearly 3,000 square foot facility is brimming with successful breeding projects, healthy animals that are well cared for, and a supportive staff of individuals who are also passionate about reptiles, including…


If you e-mail us at any given time, you’ll be communicating with one of three people—and Amanda is one of them. She’s been an absolutely fantastic addition to our team, and has a rock star work ethic. Her favorite pet is her anerythristic Savannah monitor “Nyke,” who is never far from her, even at the office.

Amanda enjoys snakes, tarantulas, and a variety of other critters. She’s also a video editing expert, and will be the brains behind our upcoming YouTube video channel. Here she is with our resident 5-foot Colombian red tail boa.


There’s also a good chance that Meg will be on the other end of an e-mail you send to us. She’s been a very welcome addition to the Global reptile sanctuary team, with experience in customer service, a cheerful attitude, and of course a love of animals.

She’s taken a real liking to some of our eight-legged critters and is really enjoying raising her young Antilles pink toe, “Manson.” She also cares for a Ball python at home, which her whole family enjoys.
