Hi from Switzerland and from a lover of Canary Islands

Postby Alexandre Mamin » Tue Sep 01, 2015 5:31 pm


I am Alexandre from Pully in Switzerland.

I have been keeping reptiles for almost 20 years now. I've kept a lot of them.

Now I am little by little changing my point of view. Less captivity, more herping.

I am currently making trips to Canary Islands, looking for taking pictures of Gallotia and other reptiles from there.

I took a lot information from this forum and now I want to share some pictures with you because you gave me so much, I want to give it back. English is not my mother language so sorry for the faults.

If I can give you info anout my discoveries, I will do it with pleasure, because sharing is important to me.

First of all I am a gecko and lacertid lover but I like all reptiles.

See you soon.

Best regards

PS : Some french and swiss people may know me under the nickname Manice as I am the admin of a swiss reptile forum

Hi Alexandre,

Indeed your nickname Manice rings a bell to me and on the forum I'm thinking of, I've always regretted that there was not more herping pictures despite a herping section...so welcome in here! :D

We're neighbors by the way, I live in Belmont. ;)
