Welcome to my website!

My name is Thai Tran and I grew up in the metropolitan city of New York. I initially became interested in the world of herptology after my first visit to a petstore in New York City that offered reptiles for sale.

I was fascinated with the uniqueness of such peculiar animals which was untypical of the common household pet. Gradually my interest gravitated towards pythons, partically ball pythons. They were simply non-agressive docile animals which did not require alot of space, which was perfect for me since I live in an apartment. Also, another contributing factor to my growing curiosity of herps was the variety of shows on television that featured animals and nature.
