There really isn’t anything better then talking shop and making new friends with fellow herpers. It’s like we all are on the same wave length and understand each others trials and tribulations when it comes to our animals.
Yesterday I met a couple who purchased some snakes from me. They were very nice people. Although we only talked for maybe 15 minutes, it’s always such a breath of fresh air to talk to someone else with the same obsessions as yourself. I think this is why I love doing shows so much. Ive done a few this year and no matter how many sales we make, i still have an amazing time talking shop.
For some reason I really enjoy talking to the people who are just getting into the herping game. They are some of the most enthusiastic, amazing people. Their eyes bulge when they see their first morph and it brings me back to when I saw my first bee.
Obviously if you can’t tell I am really pumped for the White plains Reptile Expo in 2 weeks. We have a table on the stage so make sure you come check us out.
We will also be selling a few new products like hides and what not too. I also am working on a secret project that will make it possible for everyone to walk away with their favorite morph! No matter the price tag! Stay tuned for more info….

At certain moments in one’s collection it becomes apparent that it is really hard to decide on what to add to it. This summer I want to add some more breeder males to my collection, but the choices have me agonizing over what to pick.
On one hand there are a few males that are absolutely stunning. They are the perfect example of the morph. But are they financially feasible to the longevity of the collection? On the other hand, there are a few males that could really take the collection to the next level. But do you take the plunge?
You heard me. At certain points in growing one’s collection you have to make the right choices to get from point A to B. Do you add multi gene males that can reproduce less valuable animals, but if you hit on the odds the animals that can be produced could potentially be absolutely just as stunning as the father?
Do you get that single gene higher end morph rely less on the odds and more on the fact that he is higher end? That is the choice we all have to make when growing our collections. Let me tell you, it is not an easy one. I am not made of money because if I was this choice would be real easy. I’d get both! LOL
What do you think you would do? Would you go for the gold or go for the beautiful animal? Is the animal only beautiful because you are bias to that morph? Do you make the sound business decision or go on your gut?
Anyone want to lend me some money? LOL End the misery for me… LOL When I make my choice I’ll be sure to update you guys.
