I'm sending out this note to introduce myself, I am Meg Grooms, your new exotic pets editor!
Exotic pets are a special interest of mine. My love of these animals dates back about ten years, when my husband worked as a zookeeper and we opened a small reptile rehab center in Central Florida. We were known as the turtle people, even convincing pet stores to lend us their sick animals.
It's my honor to be serving as your editor, and I welcome all comments, questions and suggestions!
