New Published Mini-article: animals and Dusty featured in "Practical Reptile Keeping" magazine, May 2010 issue

Practical Reptile Keeping is the UK's premier and best-selling reptile magazine. There's a one-page layout and description with photos of some of our most exciting and newest color and pattern morphs on page 19 of the May 2010 issue, in the publication's "What's Hot in the Reptile World?" section.


Speaking at the upcoming 33rd International Herpetological Symposium, Tucson, Arizona USA

July 21 - 24, 2010.

I will be speaking on Trans-Pecos Ratsnakes and Baja Ratsnakes during one of those dates at the upcoming
33rd International Herpetological Symposium
July 21 - 24, 2010
Tucson, Arizona USA

Should be a lot of fun. There will be field trips to two outstanding desert museums with extremely important herp collections, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and the Chiricahua Desert Museum. Lots of great speakers, including Harry Greene, and I'm sure some great conversations and herping in Gila Monster and Crotalus country!

I will post an update on my exact presentation date, along with the title and abstract, very soon. Click here for the IHS symposium details.


Interview on the UK's premier reptile forums

I was recently interviewed for the Reptile Forums UK web site. You can read the transcript here!


The End of an Era...(sort of...)

In the past few weeks, we have widdled down our entire snake collection to nothing...well, kind of nothing.

We will still be able to offer people the best Trans-Pecos Ratsnakes and Baja Ratsnakes out there every hatching season. These will be the best of the best and the rarest of the rarest mutations and morphs. We will still be working with 100% locality River Road Albino Trans-Pecos Ratsnakes, Patternless and Patternless Silver Trans-Pecos, our exclusive Strawberry Blonde project, as well as Snows, Snow Blondes, Albino Blondes, Trumbower Normally Patterned and Silver Blondes, Mustard Blondes, some neat Baja Ratsnakes, and a few other goodies. BUT, they won't be at our house. They have been spread out on breeding loan to a few of my trusted partners and friends.

Am I sad? Not really. I'll still be able to enjoy my snakes from afar. And I'll be taking my interest and passion for reptiles and biology to another level...studying tropical reptiles and amphibians at Ole Miss. Am I excited? Heck yes!

I certainly want to thank all of the people who have enabled me to enjoy Subocs for so many years, and I hope to continue to enjoy West Texas and its marvelous wonders for many years to come.
