Exploring ethical captive management of reptiles & amphibians through the lens of biological science, conservation, and human nature. The Animals at Home Network is a herpetoculture-based podcast network that hosts: Animals at Home Podcast by Dillon Perron, Project Herpetoculture by Phillip Lietz and Roy Arthur Blodgett, Reptiles & Research Podcast by Liam Sinclair and Ellie Hills, and Animals Everywhere by Bryce Broom. Each show on the network brings all members of the reptile community together to discuss reptile husbandry, scientific research, breeding, wildlife conservation, and more!
In this episode, Bryce and Dillon discuss why we should offer a more natural and varied diet to the snakes in our care. This of course includes using geckos, lizards, frogs, and snakes as regular prey items. We also discuss Bryce’s herping trip to St.Lucia, South Africa, and his hunt for the East African Gaboon Viper. Bryce also explains the visual difference between the East and West African Gaboon Viper. We also cover the importance of recording keeping, breeding venomous snakes, why keep reptiles, and much more!
