Tom Kessenich, Herpetologist

Since his youth, Tom has been a "hands-on" herpetologist, exploring the fields and streams near his home is southern Wisconsin. Fascinated by all nature had to offer, he continued to expand his knowledge, collection and territory.

From local pet stores and nature centers to traveling to other states, his interests lead him to Wisconsin Dells where he became the Head Zookeeper at the renowned Serpent Safari Reptile Zoo from 1996-1998.

Using all these experiences has fueled Tom's passion and drive to bring you the finest in reptile programs. This holds true today as Tom travels nationally, bringing his 40 plus years of experience and nature tales to you.
