Massai came to us from animal control in a nearby county. He'd been supposedly found as a stray (in November??). He was COVERED in wounds, obviously from some kind of attack. We believe that someone tried to kill him with a shovel. He's been here a year now, and has completely recovered. However, we are finding that he is NOT always friendly. (Who can blame him, after that?) He needs someone who will handle him gently and knows how to deal with defensive snakes. He eats well, and always wants more. He is recovering from a respiratory infection, but should be ready to adopt to someone experienced with finishing treatment (if needed).

About VA Reptile Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

I’m Bonnie Keller, and I have operated VARR since 1999. I was also the founder of the NH Herptile Society and Rescue. I have had articles published in various newspapers, and was the technical editor for Melissa Kaplan's Iguanas for Dummies (IDG books, 2000). I also wrote an article in Reptile and Amphibian Hobbyist that was published in August of 2000, and an article for Reptiles magazine that was featured in 2011. In addition, I have been a consultant for and provided assistance to local, state, and federal authorities in cases of abuse/neglect, and confiscation. None of this would be possible without the support and guidance of my husband, Rich, who has been with me since the early days of this rescue. We have a son in middle school, and have been foster parents.

Our home is shared by furry companions as well as scaly ones.

We are both enjoy working with young people. I teach middle and high school sciences, and Rich drives a schoolbus!
