My name is Ron Krol, born in 1981. I was born on a farm in the middle of the Netherlands, in a small town where I still live.

For as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about nature. Through the years, and after puberty (during which I had other priorities), I have followed this passion more and more. In addition to nature in general and everything this encompasses, I have developed a preference for herpetofauna. Reptiles and Amphibians attracted my attention because of the way they look, behave, and live. Therefore, I have immersed myself in this topic the most.
Since a few years, I have taken stock of reptiles/amphibians at a beautiful area on the Veluwe in the Netherlands. I specifically investigate the adder and its habitat. The most important goal is to conduct research in order to promote the preservation of the adder in the Netherlands.

For years, I have been scouring reptile biotopes and from the very beginning, I have felt the need to record the beautiful things I encountered. Slowly, this too has turned into a passion that has grown and expanded. In addition to the equipment I need to conduct research, I always bring a camera.

This website has 2 goals. The first is to create a library for myself. This gives me the opportunity to exhibit and look at the beautiful things I’ve seen and recorded whenever I want to. Additionally, the website gives me the opportunity to share my photos. In this way, I can let others experience and enjoy the beauty of nature. Perhaps it will enthuse others and encourage them to think about things such as ‘preservation’, ‘sustainability’, and ‘respect’.

Ron
