    In THE LIZARD KING, author Bryan Christy takes readers on a wild ride into a criminal jungle extending from South Florida through Europe, terminating in a Southeast Asian mastermind, "the Pablo Escobar of wildlife trafficking," who uses cheap reptiles as a front to traffic the world's most precious animals, including rhinos, pandas, and snow leopards.

    THE LIZARD KING is the true story of crafty smugglers supplying rare animals to collectors and zoo curators worldwide; it is the story of an amazing multi-million dollar industry in genetically-designed snakes selling for $100,000; and it is a story of obsession.

    And not just the bad guys'. In researching this book, Christy was bitten between the eyes by a blood python, chased by a mother alligator, sprayed by a bird-eating tarantula, and ejaculated on by a Bengal tiger. The result is a story that will fascinate and amaze you.

    I actually attended a talk that Mr.Christy gave at a local college two years ago, he is a great speaker, was a very interesting talk and got our books signed at the end.
