It was a crazy year, so many new animals and projects, cool births and hatchlings, and some awesome new enclosusers. Can't wait to see what's in store for us next year, hopefully more of the same. I'm excited to be joining a great group of guys in a new project, and where that might go in the future. I was very thankful to be included with the turtle GIANTS on thereptilereport.com Chelonia breeder of the year nominee list, and everyone who voted for me, even though the other guys beat me everyday of the year. I hope everyone has a happy and safe new year, and that the next one starts off just as awesome!

Very cool Gerard. You've got an awesome operation going on. Is that #18 picture a species of Trachemys? Perhaps a young cuban slider?

Wow Gerards, some great specimens there. Did you breed them?

The Trachemys? Yes, we produced them this year.

Yes, that is Speckii. However, the americanus was stolen from my friends house, and even though the guy was caught, the toad had died in the time he had it. People suck!

I will have some bufo woodhouseii albinos for your kids this summer, I promise.
