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!
John Courteney-Smith MRSB of Arcadia Reptile joins us on the podcast again to the research and development process that is necessary to develop new reptile products. In his episode, we discuss the current state of herpetoculture (both the positives and negatives), new reptile technology, whether or not you should use a substrate divider in your vivaria, and the benefits and criticisms of the Deep Heat Projector. John also walks us through the development of Arcadia’s new mercury-vapor bulb (D3EVO) specifically designed for the North American market as well as their new tortoise diet (Optimised52).
