Field Herping the United States takes a look into both sides of the field herping niche of herpetoculture & herpetology. Our guests this show are Chip Cochran of Loma Linda University & Rhett Stanberry of Florida.
Zack Stout has to be one of the youngest advocates speaking his mind about reptile rights today specifically rattlesnake roundups. He came to our attention through his outspoken behaviors as it were because the school principal was called to inform him that he shouldn’t speak of such things in class! Needless to say, we support Zack and his efforts to stop the horror of rattlesnake roundups. We thought it would be great to have Zack on the show to tell us not only his side of the story but also tell us ‘adults’ how we might have greater impact on the upcoming generation of herpetoculturists and herpetologists in our school systems today. So grab a glass of your favorite beverage, sit back, get comfortable and listen to the next generation really tell you how it is. If this strikes a chord with you don’t forget to show your support by dropping Rise Against Rattlesnake Roundups. For more on roundups you can listen these other interviews as well.
To learn more about rattlesnake behavior we have the following interviews.
- Melissa Amarello Rattlesnake Social Behavior
- Rattlesnake Behavior with Dr. Rulon Clark
- Dr. William K. Hayes Rattlesnakes
Reptilia Zoo in Canada is like no other facility I’ve ever had the opportunity to visit. Many would think ‘Reptile Zoo’ and think of ramshackle thrown together enclosures with a staff with less knowledge than a first time keeper. Let me assure you with the likes of Dr. Ngo, Cheryl Sheridan, and Lee Parker at the helm of this incredible facility there is no way this should be thought of as a typical private zoo often portrayed in mass media. For starters listen to this interview then go and see our video we shot Reptilia Zoo.
