About me and the blog.
This blog is dedicated to all herpetologically related subjects. Amphibians and reptiles in the news all over the world, all kind of information and alot of my own straythoughts regarding this wide subject. It will be in English, but some articles will be in Swedish.
A little about me:
My name is Miqe Erikzén, a.k.a “Miqe Morbid” or “Morbid” on the internet. I was born 1966 in Uppsala, Sweden. I’m married to Thess since 2001 and I have a teenage daughter born 1988 from a previous marriage and a daughter born in December 2004 with Thess.
We all live in a small village right between Uppsala and Norrtalje called Knutby, Sweden.
I’ve kept herptiles since the mid-80´s, but then I didn´t keep any venomous reptiles but animals like the American Cornsnake and similar European snakes.
The European herpetofauna has always fascinated me, and the interest for this geografic group of herptiles has been growing over the years. That is probably why I also have a site dedicated to European herptiles, have a peek at Terrarium Morbidum
The interest for venomous snakes has always been there but I thought that I didn’t have the nessecary experience to keep any until late -90´s. In 1996, I got my first “hotsnake”, a Vipera aspis.
