Here’s my interview with the guys at Herpin Time Radio on Blog Talk Radio.
The following was released via the USARK website today. For those unaware of what’s going on. This ruling will make owning and transporting certain species of constrictor snakes illegal. That’s the real deal in a nutshell. Now then, the way it reads is that these species will no longer be imported but the facts are if you read deeper into it that the species listed will not only not be able to be imported but they will also not be able to be transported across state lines etc. Besides the fact that the government is taking away a right to own reptiles of our choosing history has shown that it won’t stop there. Do yourself a favor and really read the issues and draw your own conclusions. But please don’t make a knee jerk reaction to something which you may be uninformed on. I think Mark Romansky put it best when he said “Today it’s Pythons, tomorrow it’s Poodles.” For more on this topic you can hear Andrew Wyatt explain what and how USARK is combating this at the Reptile Living Room.

OK, so there’s been a lot going on over here at the site behind the scenes. First of all, we have launched two more sites for those of you who are unaware. We now have The Reptile Living Room which was launched a month or so ago. Reptile Living Room is an internet Radio Show which broadcasts every Friday night without fail. We have Herp Chat & Interview with an Expert. Herp chat is about taking care of specific species while Interview with and Expert talks with experts in the field of herpetoculture and address’ them in a professional manner about how they achieved the success that they enjoy.
Now then, on January 22 we launched Herpetoculture House eZine which is a magazine dedicated to the herp keeper not the breeder or advertiser with the most money to throw at us. For more information on what we’re referring to you’ll have to check out the site. You can subscribe or buy a single issue. Previews will be up soon. We have also grown in the area of authors but I will leave that hurrah until tomorrow when you see the announcement at 10:00 AM PST.
We have also been approved for Amazon Affiliate Marketing which basically means that if you buy a book through one of our links then we get 15% of the sale. That’s it point blank we aren’t hiding the fact that we are striving to make money. Fact of the matter is we are trying to offset at least the hosting costs of the 3 sites. So when you see our herp library go up click on it and buy something. If for no other reason, click and buy to prove nay sayers wrong.
So with that little bit o’news I will leave you be and wish you all the best.
