-Reptiles and Amphibians-
This is for wild animals that have been injured, and need a little time to heal so they can be released. We also take in domestics, and help rehome to approved applicants. After getting a health evaluation at our Millsap Vet Clinic, and lab work back, they will be listed on this site for adoption. We currently work with Palo Pinto and Parker (the game wardens and animal control) and the surrounding counties but will accept reptiles from all over Texas. We also offer snake relocation during normal hours of operation.

Our constant thrive for adventure takes us to all kinds of places! Follow along to enjoy awesome nature pictures and videos. We have been outdoor active for many years, and share what we have learned with others; animal biology, herpetology, botany and wild foraging, entomology, and geology through hands on learning programs. We started out as nature interpreters for TPWD living in one of the state parks for some time. Since then we have relocated to Mineral Wells and bought a home to continue the educational experiences for the young and old!
Dr.Herbel and his vet techs over at Millsap Vet Clinic has been the biggest help with getting these guys back to health!
