About me

Here is a little bit about me. My name is Kyle, I am 30years old and love animals. I lived in California most my life, I have owned many types of reptiles raging from Leopard geckos, chameleons and of course turtle and tortoises. When I was young i got my first turtles which were RES. They were more then I can handle so I gave them to a friend who had a pond. It wasn't until I was 13 when i got my First box turtle. My first box turtle was a 3 toed and her name was Rex. From 13-18 I managed to collect many types of tortoises and turtles including Star tortoises, Mountain tortoises, Greek tortoises, Russian tortoises, 3 toed box turtles, ornate box turtles, and eastern box turtles. I had breeding groups of Russians, 3 toeds, ornate and easterns. I had 6 star tortoises at one point, 2 Mountain tortoises, and 3 baby greeks that went yet old enough to breed. As for other reptiles I use to own it would very from different types of lizards. I use to have 8 leopard geckos, 2 veiled chameleons, 3 collared lizards, and 2 bearded dragons. The leopards I gave to a friend because I wanted to focus on the tortoises and turtles, my chameleons i just didn't have time for so had to sell them. Collared lizards were awesome but went to a friend as well. The male bearded dragon died after 9 years of life, and the female bearded dragon is still alive and 10 years old. Most lizards I had I sold or gave to friends to focus on Turtle and tortoises. Around December 08 I was forced to give up my collection. It was hard for me to do because a  lot of my collection I had for years, and some I raised from 1 week old. Due to problems, money and downgrade in housing I was forced to give them up. Most of them went to breeders and I still talk to some of the people that got them. Today I have 3 three toed box turtles, 2 eastern box turtles, 2 giant mexican musk turtles, 1 razorback musk turtle, and 5 burmese black mt. tortoises, 2 red footed tortoies, 1 leopard tortoise, 1 greek tortoise, 1 russian tortoise, 2 desert tortoises. All of which are doing great and enjoying life. If you have any other questions for me please email me and ask away i do not mind at all.
