New Blog

leave a comment »

Hello Everyone,

I have been very busy with the changes in Business, and in all the traveling shows we have been to.  We got back from Chicago and had a great time getting to see everyone, and meeting others for the first time.    If you have not noticed, I’m changing the look of my Site and the Youtube page.   www.boaconstrictor.com will have a new look soon, and we will release some cool new projects.   I’m going to make it Very easy to navigate through my site and my videos.   I will blog a lot more often to keep people updated as well.  We should have one video every 2 weeks, and I will blog a few times a week.    I love writing about my experiences and the people I get to know as I have been involved in the Reptile industry over the years.  There are so many great people that collect, breed, and have a passion for reptiles, and that is one of the best parts of the business.   We are all very different, yet we share a huge common interest that make up who we are.

How the new site will work!!!   It will be similar to the old site but MUCH easier to update and navigate through.   I will keep sales UPDATED through my blog and section.  If you see something that we may not have on the Sales list, please give us a shout through the contact form.  We don’t list all Available animals at all times.    I also give an outside look into a small part of just our experience in breeding reptiles through my youtube videos and facebook.   I’m just getting used to Facebook, so bear with me.

The new site will be orgainzied soon, so please be patient with me while we make the changes to the site.   I will Blog a couple times a week as we start to get ready for the breeding season.  We are still hatching eggs from the Balls.

I hope you enjoy the  looks of the new site.

Jeremy

Reptile Trips

leave a comment »

I consider myself very fortunate to be able to work in an area that I love.  The past few years have been quite different.   I have been able for the past few years to travel and do a lot of research for a different company, and in the spare time I have had, I have been able to meet some of the nicest people in many different country’s.  I have been able to do research on temperatures, gestation periods, and I have seen hundreds of wild caught, farmed, and field collected Boa Constrictors.

I have met with Vets from different countries, field collectors, and trappers of all different types of animals.  When I’m able to pull away from my other work, I have been able to do as much as I can.  I have been able to go to some very rare places in South America, Central America and Mexico.  I do most of my work in the South American North Region.  I will be writing my own articles, and it has been a personal passion of mine to understand the snake that I love the most.

Josh has worked with all reptiles his life through his personal collection and managing a very nice pet store.  He knows the animals as good as anyone.  He has encouraged me to start something new while I was out.  We made some great connections, and I took him on this and a few other trips.  I’ll post them and make them available later through the site.   I’ll also publish the article I’m working on.  It may be more Scientific, but Josh will also be helping me with the Article.

With a few separate facilities and rooms, we have been able to work with All types of animals outside the typical animals I have bred in the past, and it has created a huge new buzz for me.  While I’m traveling with other work, I’ll be able to use my computer to keep everyone updated and keep the site more of a virtual and personal site.

On this trip, we were treated to quite the experience.  We were able to fly to a few private islands that you can only get to by small Plane and do some research.  We have seen some of endangered Dart frogs in the wild, and some incredible spiders, reptiles, and more importantly Boas.   Josh has a big passion for Tortoises and Turtles, and we have been able to maintain a great collection of all sorts over that past few years.  We have been able to buy and trade a lot of animals to get to where we want to go.  There is a lot of hard work to do.    Quality is the Key……

On this trip, we were invited to a Private Indian Reservation where you have to have permission from the Chief to come in and see.  We were treated to a rare occasion in the Guyana highlands.  We got to camp, see a lot of animals, a few Indian dances, and meet people that live in a completely different world with no electricity.

We traveled to a different Indian Reservation in the day down a Huge River 45 minutes off the Essequibo River.  We were invited in, and got to see how they live right off the river in a Christian Community.  The Children all go to school out doors in a big outdoor class room.  It was a good culture experience.

We also did a lot of night field collecting.  Caiman hunting, Tree Boas, and lots of Wild Jungle animals.    As a child, I always was field collecting in South Carolina where my Family lives.  I would ride the roads of Jasper County looking for anything I could find with my Grandma.   I have always loved field collecting in different areas.   I have been able to see many things, and I’ll write a lot more about a few of the great and interesting things Josh and I have encountered.  I don’t want to say too much about my research now, but it has been a good passion and I will continue to do it.  I hope you enjoy the clips on the Site… I’ll be changing them often…
