Imagine working for years to start making progress in an area of importance for you – or at least something you think you want – only to realize the activity really stresses you out. Anthony cares about breeding turtles as much as anything, but the fear of the unknown really takes over as soon as eggs are placed in the incubator. Is something wrong with him? Shannon certainly thinks so – and if you’ve ever tuned in to the show, you know she isn’t scared to tell him what she feels about it.
Anthony was the "Best of 2017" Editor's Choice for "Chelonia Personality of the Year" by The Reptile Report. As the Senior Director of theTurtleRoom, Anthony oversees educational efforts, including video and audio media production, like The Pondcast. Anthony has also written a book on the Geoemyda genus, published by Living Art Publishing as part of their “Turtles of the World” series, and several articles in magazines such as including REPTILES, The BATAGUR, Testudo (Italian), and RADIATA (German). Anthony has a B.A. from Rhode Island College and works in management for VCA Animal Hospitals. He lives in the Northeast with his wife, Shannon, and daughters, Cambria and Maddalena. He and his family are often on the move, giving turtle presentations at schools, nature and science centers, herpetological societies and conferences.
