Open Day at The Reptile Room 2012

What a weekend! We had so much fun meeting everyone at The Reptile Room for their open house. We'll write more about it later but we wanted to share some of the great photos taken by visitors to the event!

If you're in Europe and you missed your chance to meet Jay of check out the Prehistoric Pets stock available through The Reptile Room you still have a chance. This weekend the team will be at Terraristika in Hamm, Germany and next weekend you can find them at Exotic Forum just outside Madrid, Spain where Jay will be a featured speaker with Mark O'Shea!

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to give you all a heads up that I will be staying out at The Reptile Room for a week (be available there the 3rd-7th). For those who don't know, I am the sales manager from Prehistoric Pets in California- and we have loads of super high end animals in stock over there right now- some of which can ONLY be seen in person there, or at our shop in Cali.

I am really hoping that many of you will stop by- The Reptile Room has constructed a new VIP room for the high end animals, and it will be open to the public for the whole time I am there. I'm really hoping to have some great discussions regarding the most cutting edge genetics, ideas for new breeding projects, and whatever else you would like to pick my brain about.


It should be a great environment, a lot closer to many of you than any European shows, and I will be willing to sell anything you are interested in at show pricing. The most important thing to me is really just to make some good conversation with great people, and give you a more personal idea of who you would be dealing with if you ever were to get anything sent out there from us.


Many key breeders in the UK are working with genetics they have gotten from us on direct imports over the years, but never before has the opportunity been given for anyone at any level of the game to get directly involved with some of the front runners of the Retic game, as they now are able to through our partnership with The Reptile Room (I hope that doesn't sound too prideful- but I guess being an American I can't always help it, and you certainly expect it anyhow- haha).

I really hope to see you all there! -Garrett Hartle, Prehistoric Pets

Yay for Snake Day!

Attention all European herpers!!  April will be a very special month for you guys, especially the residents of Houten, because our very own Garrett Hartle will be attending the annual Snake Day on April 1st!  At this very special event, Garrett will have some of the best and most beautiful specialty Reticulated Python morphs you can find. Garrett will also be spending an additional week in the UK to help at The Reptile Room and meet even more UK clients!  We work exclusively with The Reptile Room as our official European Distributor; they go to all of the shows and even those we can’t make it to, like this weekend’s Hamm Germany show.  Make sure to stop by the booth and say hello to, shake a hand and even take pictures with our talented member of the Prehistoric Pets team. 

Are you still sitting, staring at your computer screen with a confused look on your face?  Hmm, Well I guess I should explain what “Snake Day” is huh? LOL!  To put it blandly, “Snake Day” is a massive trade expo where herpers from all around the world unite in Houten, near Amsterdam, to buy and sell snakes.  The demand for special snakes has become so intense; Garrett’s order requests have shot up in a dramatic percentile.

Will YOU be at the annual Snake Day expo?  Take pictures with our Prehistoric Pets team during your visit at Snake Day and show your support by sharing them on our Facebook page!  We love to encourage fans from all over the world to share their photos and experiences with our team on our Fan sites.  You can follow us on:

It's official, I'm a Nerd :)

Heeeeeeeeeeeeey Guys!

I've missed ya'll so very much!  I just went on a vacation to Florida to see some awesome and amazing animals!  I think it's really cool that when reptile or animal enthusiasts, breeders, etc come here we welcome them with open arms and that when we go out and about on wild adventures, the same courtesy is extended to us!  Jay for example, just got back from a trip to Europe where he was treated like a king by Mark & Dean at The Reptile Room, and while I was on my trip, Safari Todd and the good folks at Jungle Adventures Nature Park Zoo treated me like a princess!  We are very grateful to all of the wonderful people in our industry that share our love for all things cold and warm blooded.

I've been working here at The Reptile Zoo in beautiful southern California for a while now and I will let you all in on a little secret, when I came to work here, let's just say I knew alot about alligators, and not much else.  Jay and Tim and Lynda have been amazing teachers and I have learned so much without even trying!  A great example of that came about when I was driving my son Gage up to Jacksonville to skate a contest and we passed the billboard for the alligator farm in St. Augustine that just so happened to have a huge retic on it and "OMG! That's a retic" I scream!!!!  and my son says, "Mom, you're a reptile nerd now!"

At that point I thought to myself, no way, that couldn't be true........

Until we pass a gigantic Florida River Cooter on the side of the road and I slam on the breaks and jump out of the car to have my son take a picture of me holding it.  Again, my son goes, "yeah, see, you're a total nerd"

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  Again I deny it.....

But then we went to see my friend Safari Todd and play with some alligators and while I'm watching his animal presentation I realize that I know waaaaaaaaaaaaay more about animals than I ever wanted to know or wanted to admit..........

And at that point, I decided to embrace it!

I, Savannah Boan, am officially a Nerd, I am accepting it, embracing it and am proud of it.  Thanks to all that have helped me along this journey!

I hope you guys enjoy all the pics!

much love
