My name is Phillip Lietz. My primary goal in creating this website is to share my experiences in keeping and breeding desert reptiles. Reptiles have been a part of my life since I was a kid and it's now been almost 20 years of keeping and learning about these incredible animals. I have worked for a couple local exotics shops in the past and I have been fortunate enough to keep many different species of lizards, geckos and snakes. Dinosaurs are awesome. Lizards are awesome. The day I learned that reptiles can be kept as pets I was hooked.
Currently I work with the following species:
Uromastyx princeps, Uromastyx thomasi, Uromastyx ornata, Uromastyx ocellata, Uromastyx yemenensis, Uromastyx philbyi, Sauromalus ater, Crotaphytus vestigium, Nephrurus amyae, Diplolaemus sexcinctus, Leiolepis guttata, Eublepharis fuscus, and Egernia stokesii.
Along with reptiles, I am an avid Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner/competitor. I am also a freelance illustrator and illustration instructor. If you're at all interested in seeing the Illustration work I make you can check out my portfolio site here: www.plietzillustration.com
