Getting into the Herp Business and the Value of Supporting USARK FL


 This month's speaker is Chris Nettles from C Serpents. He will be speaking about how he entered into the Reptile Industry and the importance of supporting USARK FL. Chris was in the restaurant business for 20 years, owning two sports bars. After coming out of the recession after very hard times, he started his venture in the herp industry. He focused on giving the best service possible to his customers and is known all over for his top-rate incubators (Hot Box), rack systems, and captive-bred snakes. He will talk to us about loving what you do and the money will come.


After the meeting, you are invited to join us at a nearby restaurant (announced at the meeting) for more herp discussions and camaraderie over food and drinks. See you there! $5.00 for non-members per meeting or buy a year membership ($25 individual) or ($30 family/business). The address of the Calusa Nature Center is 3450 Ortiz Ave, Fort Myers, FL 33905.

WHO'S INVITED? You are! Anyone with an interest in any aspect of herpetology or herpetoculture is welcome to attend, learn, and exchange their experiences with our friendly membership. Come out to meet others who keep, breed or study reptiles and amphibians, and let them share their fascination with you. We average 10 - 20 people attending every meeting.
