    I was notified this morning that the founder of this site has passed away. Rich and I have ran sites for many years and helped change the face of reptile websites for the better.
    I do not yet know the details but apparently it was unexpected and his family could use some support. There has been a gofundme page setup.

    Thank you Merlin. My family greatly appreciates the support. I know Rich invested a large portion of his life to the reptile community.

    There is also a FaceBook memory page setup to view and share photos, or post a message/memory of Rich.

    Wow, I don't know what to say. This is very startling.
    He poured his heart and soul into this forum.

    Yes, Rich loved this site and spent days and nights working on it. Very passionate about the reptile community, educating people on reptiles, ECT...

    You all know he was always available to the site.
    We will come up with the best solution to ensure his hard work doesn't go to waste and this site stay up and functioning...

    Just saw this. Very sad to hear about this. Rich was one of the guys that helped me early on, and I've always tried to pass that on to others as much as I can. My condolences to his family.
