Grew up in southeast Iowa, and later central Iowa. I’ve been an amateur herpetologist, ornithologist, and entomologist ever since I learned there were different “kinds” of reptiles, amphibians, birds, and bugs in my early childhood. I kept a bird journal, a butterfly collection, and spent dozens of hours at local ponds trying to catch frogs and turtles. I blame much of my addiction on Steve Irwin (as many of my generation do), Animal Planet’s “The Most Extreme,” Planet Earth, Shark Week, and lots of other educational television programs.
