Mr. Brendan is our Team leader. He grew up outside of Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child, Brendan started catching wildlife in the spring and filling his tanks on the porch for the summer. after a few months he would have to let them go so they could find a place to hibernate for the long cold winter of the north. Not just snakes Brendan has been handling all kind of critters since he was a small child. He convinced his mother to let him get his first real pet snake when he was 14 years old. As Brendan grew so did his love of critters, but snake have always been his favorite. after growing up, working and traveling around the world, Brendan was ready to have another pet snake. His sister just so happened to have one that she needed a temporary home for, and Oscar Rose arrived. After people found out that Brendan had a pet snake, the rescues start showing up. Bearded Dragons, Snakes, and even Rose the Tarantula. Brendan never wanted a tarantula, but he had taken in all of these other critters, so how could he so no to her? Once a Reptile Room was created, Critters were coming in, being rehabbed and some were kept and some found new homes. After all of the critters had a great homes each with their own enclosure with their own Heat, and Lighting requirements, Brendan know that he needed to find a way to get them out more. After doing a program for his nieces & nephews outdoor education class at a local Nature Center was the final push to make it into a small business. March 1st 2015 will mark 2 years of success and continued growth! Here we come Year three! Brendan has been working with captive bread snakes for 28 year and has never been bitten. If you take a few simple precautions it is relatively safe. The Picture is of Brendan and the Mayor of Murfreesboro. He is giving Brendan an award for all of his service at the Nature Center.
