WHO ARE WE?
We are a 4 person team at the moment, we have
Paul - reptile handler, I have a passion for large snakes, I have a particular love of boa constrictors and reticulated pythons which I own, and I'm happy to admit they are my scale baby's. I have worked in many different industries currently in socal care with Young people, but I want to settle doing somthing I'm passionate about. Part of this passion is with getting people to learn about reptiles and handle them in store.
Krystie - reptile handler and small animal handler - krystie has a real passion for small animals, both of the scally types and the fur type too, she is a lizard lover and has three of them, she enjoys getting people up close with them so they can learn about the wonders of the lizarding world. Krystie is from an admin background.
Clare - small snake and lizard handler - Clare has had many reptiles in her life the latest being Kingsley the corn snake, Clare loves all animals and has several furbaby cats and fish at home, she has a real knowledge of reptiles and fish and wants to help people who are looking for these animals as pets. Like Paul Clare currently works in socal care but is looking to bring her passion to Ystrad reptiles.
Derry - aquatics specialist and reptile handler - Derry has had lots of reptiles in his life and has many years handling experience, he has had everything from small snakes to large lizards. Derrys passion is in aquatics and he is heading up our aquatics area, he has lots of fresh water fish at home including small sharks and large frogs (big enough to take a finger or two). Derry has worked in many industries and is currently a driver which he loves. (ask him about cars too he is a massive petrol head).
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
So this is the team, so why are we here? The sort answer is that WE need YOUR help to get the doors open and make our passion a reality.
For us to be able to hold reptile handling days, match people to their new scale babies as well as to serve the community of Ystrad in pet supplies we need to get funding. As we are a new venture this is difficult for us. So we are asking for people to give, to help ystradreptilescyf.co.uk and Ystrad reptiles a real community place as well as a business.
