I have loved Reptiles ever since i could walk. My Mother would find Western Fence Lizards in a shoebox under my bed at three years old. For the past twenty plus years I’ve been keeping and breeding Mexican Beaded Lizards Gila Monsters and several species of venomous snakes. I am licensed under CADFW Restricted species permit number 2845. I bought my first Beaded Lizard from Robert Applegate in 1998. I started out with one animal and within seven years my God given passion made me the most prolific breeder in the world. Since 2005 there have been over one thousand beaded lizards produced at HorridumAngeli Reptiles. We bred only Heloderma horridum, Heloderma exasperatum and Heloderma suspectum until 2017, when i was able procure Cites from Mexico and import my dream animal Heloderma alvarezi. We have successfully reproduced H. alvarezi here the past three years. I was married on September 21, 2019 to My Beautiful Wife Krista Elizabeth Angeli and we now breed Ornate Diamondback Terrapin’s (Malaclemys terrapin macrospilota) ANGELI’S ORNATE DBT’S.
Special Thanks To my Beautiful Wife Krista Elizabeth Angeli for putting up with my crazy ass. My Mother and Father Larry and Terry Angeli without their unconditional love and support I would have been gone long ago. To our dear friends Randy and Sharon Wright for their love and beautiful Gila Monsters. Robert Applegate and Chris Reimann for great animals and their willingness to share their knowledge. My good friend and colleague Doug Price and my best brother James Tuttle for always being there when I needed him. Most of all i want to thank GOD for without HIS LOVE and COMPASSION in my heart i would be lost.
