As of November 2016, it appears that someone on FaceBook is pretending to be me. They have copied photographs from this site and are using my name ("Jon Bondy Pets"). They are claiming to be selling my african gray parrots. I have no idea what they are really up to, but that FaceBook account is not mine, I do not live in California, and I am not selling my parrots. Be cautious in dealing with these people.

I also have a Blog at My Wordpress Blog where I post additional personal stuff.

Please note that this web site works fine with the Mozilla FireFox browser, and with Apple's Safari browser, but the menuing system fails with Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Please use FireFox when viewing this site. I've put a copy of all of the nicely menued links at the bottom of this page, for those of you who remain IE addicted.

Thank you for visiting my web site!!!

This web site contains information about what I do and what I like, but focuses most of the content on my reef tank, my cephalopods (octopus and cuttlefish), my mantis shrimp, and photography.

Please explore the site and let me know what you think. Want pictures of some critter I don't have here: write to me at jon "at" jonbondy "dot" com!

The photographs on this site are fairly large, and are loaded when you open each page; you may find viewing the content to be fairly frustrating over a modem, unless you are patient. Similarly, the videos are often very large, and may be difficult to view over a modem. Large, high resolution monitors are recommended to help view the pictures easily.

The menuing system I've used on this site requires that you have JavaScript working in your web browser. When in doubt, use the FireFox browser rather than Microsoft's Internet Explorer.
