Jake "The Snake" Fouts has a passion for reptiles that has lead him to work closely with herps of all kinds. He has worked with wildlife and herpetology professionals in Utah and Nevada on conservancy studies, species preservation, and museum specimen preparation for educational studies. Jake enjoys handling and teaching about the animals as much as he enjoys fieldwork and is always ready with an answer to questions ranging from adaptations to zoological diversity. His long term goal is to be involved in venom research and invasive species studies in tropical climates. Jake's been with Scales and Tails since early 2015 and is looking forward to sharing his knowledge and experience with our visitors, and gaining more along the way.
