Exploring ethical captive management of reptiles & amphibians through the lens of biological science, conservation, and human nature. The Animals at Home Network is a nature-based podcast network and is currently the home of several podcast programs: The Animals at Home Podcast hosted by Dillon Perron, Animals Everywhere hosted by Bryce Broom, Reptiles & Research Podcast hosted by Liam Sinclair and Ellie Hills, and Project Herpetoculture hosted by Phillip Lietz and Roy Arthur Blodgett. Each show on the network brings all members of the reptile community together to discuss breeding, reptile husbandry, scientific research, wildlife conservation, and more!
In this episode, Phil and Roy have a discussion with Nathan Carlos Rupley, a forager and earth living devotee with a lifelong interest in herpetoculture! We discuss Nathan’s background, upbringing, and winding journey with herpetoculture, his thoughts on designing a holistic collection, the similarities and differences between keeping invertebrates and herpetofauna, and a whole lot more. Have a listen! And please like, subscribe, and share this episode, if you feel so inclined.
