Inland Reptile

 

This page covers my recent publications and interviews. I consider myself fortunate to be in a position to contribute something to the hobby beyond the actual breeding of snakes. I am currently working on additional writings and research projects.

 

 

The Complete Carpet Python

This book (written with Dr. J Julander) is the most comprehensive ever written on the carpet python complex and covers just about every aspect of their natural history, captive care and breeding.  It was a long process, taking two years to complete but an enjoyable experience as well. I am very pleased with the outcome and feel honored to have had the chance to have been a part of it.

Paradoxism”  HerpNation magazine, Volume 2 #5.  This article is a science based explanation for the paradox phenomenon and details several of the developmental anomalies that can lead to this condition(s). Thought the concepts discussed in the article can be complex, the goal was to present the information in such a way as to make it accessible to most herpers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Paradigm Shift in Herpetoculture”  HerpNation Magazine, Volume 1 #3.  This was a short opinion piece in the magazines “Viewpoint” section. It is a discussion of the shifting priorities and dynamics of herpetoculture (for better or worse) from the perspective of someone who has watched it transpire.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over the last few years I have been asked to appear numerous times of reptile themed radio shows. The topics of these interviews vary.

In this episode we are joined by Nick Mutton and we will talking about the different bloodlines of carpet pythons in the US. We will be tallking about the history behind some of the most well known carpet pythons and lines in the US.
In this episode we will be talking with two of the greatest python breeders in the world. Nick Mutton from Inalnd Reptiles and Ryan Young from Molecular Reptiles. They will be telling us all about their recent trip to Western Australia. It should be a great show and one you won't want to miss.
To start off the new year, We'll have none other than Nick Mutton coming on to give us a genus break down of Corallus and when the species split from other Boids. This will be a heavier topic and we suggest you pack a lunch! It should be very interesting as Nick passes his knowledge on and we hope to talk the listerns back a million years or so.
In this episode we are first talking with Nick Mutton. We will be discussing his current research project and how you can help him out with collecting data. We will also be talking all about the North east carpet fest.

On this episode we will be talking about one of the most under rated pythons of the carpet complex. The bredli python. When I think of bredlis I think of one person Nick Mutton of Inland Reptiles. We will be talking about natural history, how they diverged from carpet pythons, keeping and breeding and of course some of the morphs. Nick works with the most genetically diverse group of Morelia bredli in the US. I have a feeling that this will be one of those episodes that people will listen to over and over again.
We celebrate our 100th episode and we wanted to break out the big guns. So we will be talking with Nick Mutton and Justin Julander. We will be discussing their newest book "The Complete Children's Python" This is a can't miss episode. Justin Julander from Australian addction reptiles and Nick Mutton from Inland Reptile.

We will discuss all about there natrual history, husbandry and breeding. You will be on the road to success with this truley awesome genus of pythons. In the second half of the show Nick will talk about the in's and out's of starting and running a reptile business.
Well fellow Morelia heads I will be away from the mic tonight and Owen will be joined by none other than Luke Snell. Luke is no stranger to the show and I can't think of anyone better to help Owen out. and if thinks couldn't get any better we have Nick Mutton from Inland reptiles coming on. To talk about everything python! An episode not to be missed.
