TERRARISTIKA at 09.12.2023

Dear friends of Terraristika.
For more than a quarter of a century Nicki and I are responsible for TERRARISTIKA. For 20 years we are not able to travel once 3 weeks because of existing appointments. Always, but also always we have been unconditionally committed to our common hobby and our show. Don’t worry, it will stay that way. But we claim the next summer for us. Means. I am 61 years old and have put all my herpetological interests on hold. Since we all have only one life, Nicki and I will claim next summer for ourselves and catch up on such things as our honeymoon and other things. Don’t worry, we’ll be back to full speed after that, but we finally need some time to ourselves. Therefore there will be no TERRARISTIKA in June 2024. We hope you understand us.
Frank and Nicki
