In This Episode...

Photographer, videographer, naturalist, and reptile keeper Greg Brashear of Greg’s Turtle Haven joins The Pondcast team to talk Alligator Snapping Turtles and other reptiles from the Southeast United States. Like theTurtleRoom, Greg is passionate about educating others about turtles, tortoises, their conservation, and their husbandry.

Greg is one of the rare cases, where a turtle advocate walks the line between field herper and keeper. Greg keeps more than 150 turtles and tortoises at his Georgia home, mostly rescues. He is also frequently in the field, observing species like the Alligator Snapping Turtle (Macrochelys temminckii) in its natural habitat, allowing for the discovery of interesting in-situ behaviors.

Greg’s YouTube channel called Greg’s Turtle Haven is an ever-growing collection of footage that blends his in- and ex-situ work together into a properly balanced offering for turtle nerds of all types. Greg has been an avid listener of The Pondcast, and we are proud to have him on the show to talk with him about his love of The Pondcast, his future goals, what has him excited at the current moment, and his areas for growth.
