There is an opportunity for innovation and new leadership in the reptile hobby! Over the past few years, we have seen species diversity plummet, morph diversity boom, and industrialized care become a norm. Herpetoculture has reached a period of stagnation. Lack of innovation, creativity, and value is cannon fodder for AR groups. We must re-think reptile breeding to promote methods that are both respectful to the reptiles we keep and that make our value clear to non-reptile-keeping folk. In this episode, TC Houston and I discuss the concept of small-batch reptile breeding and how it will save herpetoculture from self-destruction.
