Manny Granados was our guest speaker for July   The Herpin' Hispanics

Manny Granados spoke to a standing room only crowd at the July meeting. He gave a very colorful description of he and his wife, Yvonne's, passion for their animals and a glimpse into how they house and take care of them. His photos ranged from very serious (cleaning and taking care of the animals) to the humorous (playing with the kids).

The Granados live on a fairly large tract of land in northern St. John's county. They are building their business (called MyExotix), in which they breed a variety of herps including red tegus, unusual morphs of black rat snakes and speckled kingsnakes, several species of turtles and tortoises, and other miscellaneous herps. One of their favorite current projects is the white-sided black rat snake.

Manny and Yvonne are VERY active with the JHS and frequent many of the regional herp expos, including the upcoming National Reptile Breeders Expo in Daytona the weekend of August 16-17.

For more photos of what they are all about, visit their website for MyExotix.
