    Hi, I've joined to glean lots of information from all of you other reptile lovers. I have been taking cared of exotic animals of all sorts, as an informal educator (& animal lover, of course), since 2003. Recently, one of the science centers I used to work for had to close operations, and I was asked to take in a ball, a corn, and Franklin the Russian. I gladly, joyfully accepted. I am especially looking for ideas for outdoor enclosures suitable for southern winters. Fair warning: I probably will not post very much, due to time limitations, but hope to browse topics as often as I can. Thanks for allowing me to join!
