THE URBAN GECKO

about us

The Urban Reptile is...

The Urban Reptile is proudly owned and operated by Craig and Lori Stewart. Craig has had a passion for reptiles since he was a young boy and his fascination for caring for these amazing animals has only intensified over the years. As a young boy and teenager, Craig was an avid collector, getting his first reptile when he was just 7 years old. Craig kept as many reptiles as his mother would allow in the house but once out on his own, it didn’t take long for Craig to make the jump from a collector to breeder and he started dabbling in his first breeding projects .

James

Reptile Specialist: James joined The Urban Reptile in 2009 and quickly became a valued team member as a result of his passion for reptiles and incredible work ethic. As one of our reptile specialists James oversees the entire Gecko division including breeding and general maintenance. Breeding season is an incredibly busy time for James – but is also his favourite time of the year as each day brings the excitement of seeing the new hatchlings. Outside of work James is an avid gamer.

Brett

Brett is in charge of the colubrid’s including the Milk Snakes, King Snakes, Corn Snakes and Asian Rat snakes. In addition, Brett has an impressive knowledge and understanding of reptiles and the industry which makes him a key member of our team. Aside from reptiles, Brett is also an avid fisherman and during fishing season he can often be found on one of the many beautiful lakes in our area.

Kurt

Reptile Specialist: Kurt joined us in 2010 as a summer student, but his youthful enthusiasm and strong work ethic made him such a great team member we asked him to join us full time. Kurt is one of our reptile specialists and works with the Crested Gecko area including breeding and general maintenance. Kurt has been interested in reptiles for many years and loves working with the Crested Geckos. Outside of work Kurt is an avid fisherman. (And yes Brett and Kurt are often fishing together!)
