Co-owner and founder
Garwynn our intrepid leader and guru of all thing reptilian, Started out with a fear of all things creepy crawly, spidery and snaky, but after being introduced to a particularly beautiful tarantula and overcoming his fears, he fell in love with all things arachnid, reptilian and buggy and slowly his collection and knowledge grew until he decided to share his love with everyone else and G.R.A.B was born, Most of the creatures we use at our handling sessions are Garwynn’s personal pets.

Is the whirlwind, who is married to Garwynn and his collection of pets, She was pretty much dragged along for the ride, developing her own love particularly for toads. She won't admit to having a favourite, they are all like her own children, but we know she loves Rupert as much as Custard Creams.....A LOT!
Chief Viv cleaner, Driver and Snake bather, Garwynn couldn’t do all this without her and neither could the rest of us. She is definitely the motivator of the team.
Trina developed her love of everything reptilian after getting to know Garwynn and Steph.
She is the proud owner of a Boa called Scartlett, And 3 geckos called Lenny, Benny and Squizzle and 2 beardies called Mojo and JoJo. And the newest addition to her bedroom is a Spider Royal Python Snow. She also has a lovley baby Chilean Beautiful Tarantula called Beau..I am sure she will make and appearence when she is big enough
Both the Snakes and the beardies were
bred by Garwynn
And we couldnt do it all without our wonderful volunteers
Our Silent Joker, John is Marmaduke's - one of our Albino Boas - Best Buddy. You will normally find John hanging out in the back with Marmy curled up asleep.. But don't let the tranquility fool you, Don't allow the kids near him, he is more dangerous than any animal we have!
At home he spends his time on his computer whilsy having the families newest member Rolo (a royal python) curled up round him
Say hello to our newest team member, Abbi, She will be the one picking you up if you faint from the size of our Burmese Pythons as she is a First Responder. Abbi fits right in with our motley crew, with her love of snakes being nearly as obsessive as Garwynns. When she not out and about with us you will find her at home sunning Bindi one of her 15 snakes - she even finds time for her other half and her 2 little boys - wonder woman that she is!
Andy is one of our lovely volunteers, but loves our big snakes, you will tend to find him, out front, with one of our larger snakes like Lily or Rupert.
Andy loves his snakes and has an ever growing collection at home.
Chalie is Andy's Partner
Here she is with Taulupe (loopy)
We think that means she can cope with any of our creatures, after all she copes well with him, nothing can phase you after Andy!
All of of staff are Enhanced DBS checked for your peace of mind
Ieuan & Cerys
