When I started this web site it was a few piccies of me and a snake. Now it's grown a bit and here's some awards and words of encouragement I've received

You might think I'm being a bit big-headed in putting up this page. You are right  This is purely, entirely, 100% an ego-trip for me !!

I would just like to congratulate you on your site. I really like all of the pictures of you with the snakes. A lot of snake sites I have visited just shows pictures of snakes but look like they got them from National Geographic or something. So just a big congratulation from a very satisfied surfer - Kyle

I just wanted to send a quick note thanking you for such an informative website. Rather than the dry, repetitive commentary found on so many snake-related websites, your site is filled with helpful, real-world experience. Having just acquired a week-old ball (royal ) python, I was quite anxious over getting as much information as possible on that particular species of snake. Your site certainly had what I was looking for, from feeding issues to housing solutions. Not only did I enjoy the educational aspects of your website, I also found that the construction of the actual site's layout to be highly organized, which is a breath of fresh air in a world wide web of unorganized URL's. Again, thank you for the great site. You're certainly doing a great service to the community of both present and future snake owners - Zac
