From Jay:


“I have visited about 75 countries, most of those were for cultural experiences, exploring volcanoes, fossil collecting, diving & hiking or general wildlife viewing.  For dedicated herpetology trips, I started with Costa Rica, then added expeditions to Tanzania, Namibia, Madagascar, Ecuador, Peru, Italy, France, Switzerland, and Thailand.  I’ve made six trips to Costa Rica.  I’ve seen reptiles almost everywhere I’ve gone.  Like Komodo Dragons in Indonesia and Anacondas in Brazil.  I will bring enthusiasm and a positive attitude into your experience.”
