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.
Co-owner and founder
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.
Administrator & Handler
Is our "bits" sorter, Website, banners, posters any thing offical, she will be there tap, tap, tap on the keyboard organising it all. She is loves our Boas, as cute as any pet dog she will tell you, and she has two of those so can compare, She enjoys the way children react to some of our beasties and loves to find out fascinating facts about them all.
And we couldnt do it all without our wonderful volunteers
Leanne is one of our newer handlers, Whilst she loves the reptiles, she still hasn't over come her fear of spiders..
WATCH THIS SPACE.. there is still time
Meet Andy (chubby) another nutter to add to our collection,
Can normally be found with a snake and a funny hat.
Its never dull when Chubby and Garwynn are together.
Say Hi to Ange - another member of the family who has gotten dragged along for the ride on the nutter bus that is G.r.a.b
Ange is Stephs sister and well if you know Steph, I needn't say any more!
Cerys is Steph and Garwynns daughter, and as such has been around these animals as long as she can remember,
Here she is holding an owl at one of our events from the wonderful Sharandys. All Cerys and her brother really want is a cat or a dog PLEASE!!!
T.J. developed his love of everything reptilian after getting to know Garwynn and Steph.
He is the proud owner of Geckos, Beardied Dragons and a standard normal dog Zeus!
Our Silent Joker. You will normally find John hanging out in the back with a snake 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!
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!
