Caila Mailloux is the creator behind the popular Instagram account @JoobJoobtheSnek. In the episode, we discuss two major topics. First, we cover Caila’s heartbreaking experience with Serpentovirus (nidovirus), a deadly respiratory virus that is currently plaguing the reptile trade. Caila walks us through the key components of dealing with the virus as well as a new testing facility at the University of Guelph that make viral testing more accessible to Canadians. The second half of the conversation revolves around the controversy that has been sparked by Caila keeping her Ball Pythons in large Freedom breeder racks designed to house boas. We discuss where both ball python breeders and traditional pet keepers get it wrong.
