Many customers like to know about the people behind the reptiles or products they buy. Here we will tell you a little about ourselves and our business.

Our Business Philosophy

The objective of our business is to provide a high quality of customer service.  We breed reptiles because we love the animals, our goal is to ensure you have a healthy reptile and that you understand how to care for the reptiles you own.  We want you to understand what the long term consequences are in owning a living tortoise or lizard and ensure you will be successful in its care.  We will offer suggestions on what type of tortoise or lizard may be best for your circumstances, weather conditions, housing, etc. We hope you will enjoy visiting our web site and seeing some of the tortoises and lizards that we raise.

Jerry Fife is the owner and operator of Fife Reptiles.  He has been working with reptiles since his youth and has successfully bred numerous species of lizards and tortoises.   He is often requested to speak and enjoys traveling to see reptiles in their native habitat.
