Experience: 12 years

Specialising in: Boa constrictors, colubrids, and gecko's

Bio: My name is Emma Bridges. I have been working with animals of all kinds from a very young age. I became talented at dog training and enjoyed working with pit bulls and rottweiler's due to there bad reputation to show people that no animal is aggressive but mearly defensive. When I started college to gain my BTEC diploma in animal care and C&G advanced national certificate in animal care, I became intrigued by the reptile trade and found it's reputation to also be tarnished by "so called" aggression. During my 10 years of working with reptiles I have never once been bitten. and i share my partners passion of helping to educate the public about the proper care and welfare of exotic animals.
