Lara Sotto

Lara is a marine biologist and freelance animal writer. She loves bearded dragons and all things reptiles. She is NOT a fan of insects, which makes reptile feeding an interesting challenge. 

When she’s not collecting water samples and working in the lab, she’s helping out with research and articles here at ReptileKnowHow.

Elle O'Shea

Elle is a reptile keeper dedicated to animal welfare. Being fascinated by the more unconventional pets as a child, she was eventually able to turn that fascination into an every day norm. She currently keeps several reptiles, including both lizards and snakes.

She loves sharing that passion by making educational videos aimed primarily at beginners, which stress the importance of proper husbandry and proper research.
