The House Snake Guy

Hello & Welcome to the site!

Through this site I hope to share my knowledge and experience of herpetofauna with as many people as possible.  I hope that the resources found here are useful to some readers!
I have specialized in African House Snakes now since 2006 and have published a book on their care, details of which can be found on the publications page.  I primarily breed Cape House Snakes and have been lucky enough to own & produce some stunning colour mutations of this species.
If you wish to get in touch, you can do so via the 'Contact Me' page.  The Image Gallery has images of most of the animals in my current collection as well as some of their offspring and includes a number of samples from my photography collection, some of which have been used in publications.
I hope you enjoy the site!
