Dr. Booth on Reptile Parthenogenesis

Courtesy of Wikipedia

One day while reading various science articles I happened to stumble upon an article that got my attention regarding reptile parthenogenesis. Owning parthenogenetic reptiles myself I was intrigued and read the article. I was floored to learn not only are there more parthenogenetic reptiles than I had thought but they were in captive environments and the implications of this are simply amazing. So I immediately spoke with Jo our Content Director and she set-up the interview with Dr. Warren Booth of University of Tulsa. Now you have the opportunity to not only learn about his incredible paper but you as a herpetoculturist can participate in his research! That’s right folks, he is calling on herpetoculturists to help in his research so what are you waiting for? Listen to the interview and get involved.

We caught up with Dav Kauffman at the Canadian Reptile Breeders Expo while in Canada and spoke to him about his beginnings in herpetoculture and what he thinks of Rattlesnake Roundups as well as what to expect in the future from Ophis Entertainment.

White Tiger morph by 5foot16 Exotics

Adrian Haigh (Addy) to his friends of 5foot16 Exotics had some incredible morphs of Ball Pythons available for sale at the Canadian Reptile Breeders Expo this year. I loved the White Tiger morph personally, what really got me though. Adrian has a different attitude about snakes than most people I have met within the community.
