In my 20's I was a hardcore snake enthusiast. I have always been interested
in animals and plants that not many around me were familiar with. Being
that most of these animals were tropical by nature, it has evolved nicely
into my passion for tropical plants. I only have a cast off Iguana that
summers in a gazebo like cage in the garden. It winters in a converted
closet in the house.
I had a Ball python that I had fro 20 years that just recently died. Sounds
like love for plants and herps is not that unusual.

Well, this is getting far off the topic!
I met Julius Boos in my pre-aroid days when I was in the herp club in
WestPalmBeach. I have 2 red footed tortoises. Uh, just to mention aroids,
they don't eat any of mine but like to hide under the large leaves.
My eddoe from the grocery store developed huge leaves when planted out this
year (somewhat of an accomplishment in Wisconsin's short growing season).
They are almost 3 ft long and beautiful, especially for a low-cost bulb~!
. I am a
big reptile man, and have gotten through breeding some very fine greentree
pythons this year and was able to hatch out, two babies from the clutch.
