About Us

Welcome to my website reptilecraze.com!

My name is Pierre, and I am in love with reptiles. I own(ed) bearded dragons, panther chameleons and veiled chameleons, geckos and monitor lizards, and more.

That’s me, Pierre!

Why I created this website and what you are going to find here

Keeping reptiles is wonderful, and it is one of the few things I have always wanted to do since I was a child.

Catching lizards was one of my favorite activities on vacation.

My parents were not amused, as you can imagine. It wasn’t that they were afraid of lizards (I wanted a Chinese water dragon when I was a kid) – they just thought it was way too expensive to keep these animals.

So I had to wait and save money to buy a reptile and the setup myself.

Many years passed by until I was able to get my first reptile.

I was so happy when I got my first reptile (a panther chameleon named Fipsi Carlos). However, I quickly learned very painfully that keeping reptiles is not as easy (kind of) as keeping a dog.

Fipsi Carlos for the first time on my shoulder. Later I found out that Fipsi Carlos was actually a girl.

If you want your reptile to survive, you must do tons of research before getting the animal.

Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it sounds. There are dry books on reptiles that do not really help to learn how to keep reptiles correctly.

There are so many websites that contain incorrect information on keeping reptiles that leave reptile owners confused.

This website is here to give you the information you need to ensure that your reptile not only survives but also thrives in the environment you built for it.

This website was made for you and your reptile.

Meet The Team

Losing a reptile because of wrong information is an experience I do not want you to have. That’s why I created this website with a team of other reptile enthusiasts.
