About was started way back in 1999 as a resource for people needing advice about caring for their snakes.

Today we have evolved to include a range of exotic pets that is ever expanding! Our aim here is still to provide a solid resource for all of you and a community too!

One of the ways we do that is by having a passionate team who cares deeply about the well being of animals in general.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for improvement, please feel free to send us a message at [email protected].
