Jeff is a herpetoculturist interested in lizards and tortoises. Jeff has designed and sculpted some of the most amazing herpetological sculptures available today and his series for the Turtle and Tortoise Preservation Group will surely be one of his finest. The first piece, Pyxis planicauda, the Flat-tailed Tortoise from Madagascar, is incredibly lifelike. Each piece is cast from his original sculpture and is painstakingly hand-painted by Jeff. These pieces are available in a limited edition of signed and numbered pieces.
