Since I was a child I have maintained a collection of reptiles at home. Over the past two decades I have focused on keeping and breeding various species of tortoises. My current projects include Sulawesi tortoises, Mediterranean spur-thighed tortoises, Hermann’s tortoises, pancake tortoises, and radiated tortoises, among others.
