Hi my name is Ben Brady. I am the volunteer coordinator at Prehistoric Pets. I started out as a volunteer in 2015. My love for animals, reptiles in particular brought me here. My mother bought me my first Garter snake when I was 11. Over the years I've had turtles, lizards, Ball pythons and the last few years Reticulated pythons and Crested Geckos. Working mainly with Dwarf and Super Dwarf. I've had some incredible experiences working with the people and animals here that I don't think I could get anywhere else. The most amazing thing that has happened was when I was asked to help cut my first clutch of Reticulated python eggs. There is nothing like seeing the smile on the face of a customer that has never held a reptile minutes after holding their first Crested gecko or Ball python, and seeing that the fear that the had for all those years could be defeated just by holding one of these animals and seeing how amazing they truly are and that they can be enjoyed. I have even seen people buy an animal after they have realized how easy it was to care for some of them. Everyday there is something new from the animals to the people its an experience I think everyone should have. So when the opportunity to be volunteer coordinator came up I jumped at the chance. I want to share that opportunity with you. This is a non-paid volunteer program designed to help the Reptile Zoo connect with its customers.
