ABOUT ROAMING REPTILE EDUCATION
Meet the team behind the scales
I started Roaming Reptile Education in 2011, and look forward to the shouts of "THE SNAKE LADY IS HERE" from excited children.
I have a BA, BSc (Hons), and a Master of Science Communication & Education, and have been working with wildlife since my undergraduate studies. I'm currently a TRBWA-registered science teacher, and work in science communication as my day job. As a cherry on top, I'm also a performer, travelling internationally to teach and learn improvisation & clowning.
In 2018, 2019, and 2020, I produced and performed solo shows at Perth's FRINGEWORLD Festival, earning an award nomination in 2018 for Best Children's Event. I would love to see a world where people are just as enamoured with snakes & lizards as they are with cats & dogs.

George is a bobtail lizard (aka blue-tongue or shingleback) that started with Roaming Reptile Education in 2011. Russel is another bobtail that might come out to meet you.
Felix the frilled dragon (aka frill neck lizard) joined the crew only recently in 2019 and has settled in quite nicely. He doesn't like my nose (clearly shown in the picture) but is learning that it's not a threat.
Lisa the Stimson's python has been with us since the beginning in 2011. She is mischievous and sometimes likes to hide in your clothes.
Wilma is a woma python (aka sand python) that was born at Armadale Reptile Centre before joining us in 2012. Wally is another woma that might come out to meet you.
Fluffy is a south west carpet python, and joined us in 2013. She was a fully grown snake then and has only gotten stronger since. She's around 13 years old.
Martini the olive python joined the crew at the start of 2020, and hasn't come out to meet anyone yet. She's only a baby and will start coming to events once she's had a little more training.
