My earliest memories as a pre-schooler in the early 1970s were of observing fence lizards (Sceloporus) in my back yard. Soon I was catching them to bring them into my home and into my life, and later into my kindergarten to share with the class the wonderful creatures I had discovered!
In the years that have followed, I have kept and reproduced dozens of lizard species in my terraria. And I still enjoy sharing my fascination for these amazing animals with thousands of children and adults in educational presentations at schools, libraries, church groups and Boy Scout Troops throughout my home state of Virginia every year.
Getting to know and understand these amazing beings we call lizards has defined and enriched my life. Sharing what I have learned about and from them is one of my greatest joys.
That is why I created this website.
