I had met some of these guys on the past trips and they are full of laughs and fun. They invite anyone along that is willing to join in the shenanigans of a road trip. There is also a serious side, each participates in wildlife conservation through volunteering there time, educating the public and fundraising. Troy Lillie of Crocstar has devoted dollars from sales of his Crocstar Clothing line to Crocodile conservation. When you ask him what this is all about he just says in his exuberant rough voice "Hardcore conservation for hardcore people, man!" with a loud laugh at the end and a pat on your chest. The Crocstar Tour has a guest star traveling with us as well Virgo Peridot. Virgo is an adult film star that has a liking to Reptiles. Troy says he will have special guest attend each Crocstar Tour.

The next Crocstar Tour is coming up on June 16-18 to explore the everglades and visit animal facilities along the way. You Name it Tours is organizing the tours for Crocstar.

Features of the Tour include 7 Wildlife facilities, 2 national parks and one state park. For more information check out the website

Flavio Morrissiey says that we will see everything from our infamous Native Crocodiles, Wild Iguanas, Invasive species like the common caiman, maybe a wild Florida Panther and the unique Everglades from all sides. It should be an experience full of lifelong memories. We try to provide a great time with memorable customer service. I have been to the everglades countless times and know the terrain well. My least favorite thing about the Glades are the mosquitoes. We will have fun on this tour. If anyone is in the

area come see us at one of the stops. We have been known to pick up hitch hikers along the way.
