About Me

My name is Gary Morris and

have been keeping reptiles since

1996.

I am a UK hobbyist / breeder based in Dartford, Kent. I started like most keepers with a colubrid, which was a garter snake. Like many new people to the reptile hobby, my first attempt at keeping reptiles did not go to plan and unfortunately the snake died. Not letting this put me off I decided to have another go. This time I started researching a few of the readily available snakes and made my choice based on what I found. My choice of snake was a female California Kingsnake. As many keepers know, reptiles can be very addictive so I soon acquired more Kingsnakes and attempted breeding them with great success. After focusing on the Kingsnakes I decided that I would put the money I made from the offspring back into my hobby by adding new animals or new equipment to make sure my collection was always kept up to date with the best possible care I could provide. Over the years I introduced more snake species as well as lizards and tortoises to my ever growing collection and I have been fortunate to keep and breed a good variety of reptiles for a number of years. With the knowledge I have gained in this hobby (and the limited space), I decided that rather than just collecting as many different reptiles as possible and having a multitude of different requirements, I would specialise in the captive breeding of Western Hognose Snakes. And I am sure, other reptile related keepers would agree, it would simply be too boring with just one species. So I still keep a small selection of other reptiles to keep the passion alive.
