Maximillian Thorpe, aka MaxMan at 8 years old, 5 feet long, and 15 lbs.

Our hope is to present, promote, and educate about reptiles. We hope by gaining a greater knowledge of reptiles you will join us in our appreciation for them and wish to protect them.

This site is dedicated to our amazing reptilian friends, providing links to care sheets, support sites and information. MaxMan Reptile Rescue’s mission is to increase knowledge, awareness, and education about reptiles as pets; respecting and providing for reptiles; encouraging proper care; enabling proper animal selections; and advocating for proper handling and environments.

We offer educational seminars to schools, civic groups, etc. MaxMan also provides consultations, assistance, foster and adoption programs, and reptile rescue and relocation. We are active in the Central New York area. Be sure to check out our Calendar of Events to find out where you can meet our reptiles and chat with our wonderful volunteers. We’d love to see you!
