Richard “The Oregon Reptile Man” was bitten in 1970. Not literally, but by the bite of extreme curiosity concerning the natural world, and its seemingly infinite colors, patterns, and abilities in the reptile realm. Established in 1991, The Reptile Man utilizes exotic reptiles from around the world as educational ambassadors to 400 organizations yearly.
