Sixto is professor at the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, where he teaches herpetology and history of biology. For more than 35 years, he has been involved as a major player in biological research and nature conservation on a national and international level.” (Köhler et al. 2016: 526).
