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!
Dr. Kevin Arbuckle joins us to talk about folklore husbandry. How he came up with the term, the issues faced within herpetoculture, and how we can move more towards evidence-based husbandry.
