Get To Know The Reptile Keepers

They Met Because of

a Monitor Lizard named Diesel...

Everyone thinks we're kidding when we say Caleb and Brittany met because of a Blackthroat Monitor named Diesel, but the story is true! Brittany met Caleb in 2012 when strolling through a facebook group and couldn't help but completely fan-girl over the fact that Caleb owned her dream species of lizard. Brittany, being from NY, was not allowed to own monitors like Diesel due to laws in place by the DEC. 

After getting to know each other for 5 years Brittany finally took the plunge and drove 17 hours to go meet Caleb in Northwest Florida and the monitor that started it all, Diesel.  Months after the meeting that created an instant connection Brittany moved down to NWFL and together they began plotting their future - Which leads you to where you are now!

The dynamic reptile duo that fell in love miles apart are now working on creating a clothing line to aide in conservation, their outreach program, and future educational facility!

Forever In Our Hearts, Diesel 2010-2019
