Ray Roehner - Author
Ray Roehner began collecting and studying reptiles and amphibians at the age of five. When he was 14, he worked in the animal labs of a major cancer research hospital where his interest in animals, and in particular high quality animal care and husbandry, nurtured his desire to work in the animal field. His subsequent science degree, coupled with his certification as an animal technologist, put him on the career path to manage the animal research efforts of two major companies in cancer and diabetes research. His love for reptiles continued and he became fascinated with leopard geckos, studying them and developing a high quality care program based on the many studies he designed and conducted to develop cutting edge care protocols to produce and maintain leopard geckos of the highest quality. He felt a calling to write this book so he could share his work and knowledge with others in order to further the hobby and most importantly to him, to benefit the well-being of the animals that he so truly loved.
Proceeds from the sale of the book go to fund reptile rescues and other reptile causes worldwide.
“I believe this book will be a useful reference supported by all hobbyists, collectors, and breeders, because it will comprehensively inform people on how to properly care for leopard geckos.
That goal benefits us all, and most importantly, improves the lives of the geckos in our care.
Proper care makes the hobby more rewarding and exciting, and The Leopard Gecko Advisor will be an important adjunct for those of us charged with educating hobbyists.
Now there is this resource that we can refer people to that answers the fundamental questions on the latest techniques in care, and this is something that I feel will be of great benefit to the leopard gecko hobby.”
