For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by wildlife. My earliest memories are of me stuffing my pockets with toads at recess, and filling my dads toolbox with yellow garden spiders that I collected from the woods behind our house. As I grew, so did my love for animals, especially reptiles!
At around 10 or 11 years old, I clearly remember begging my parents to let me have a Burmese Python after seeing the giant snake on an episode of The Crocodile Hunter. I became obsessed! I was determined to own one someday, so I began collecting books, saving articles online, and using every resource I could find to research the snakes. Although my parents were reluctant to having a snake in the house, they did eventually come around. Upon doing a little research of their own, they opted to have a Ball Python named Phyllis for my first snake. As the years went by, more snakes were added to my collection and I eventually even got that Burmese Python I always wanted! In 2012 on my 18th birthday, I got my first clutch of eggs from a Burm named Shamu. Around that same time I also began collecting other large constrictors including Reticulated Pythons, and Green Anacondas, which set the foundation for what we do, and where we are today. Retics, Burms, and Anacondas make up a large portion of what we work with here at Blake Wilson Reptiles. From our first clutch to our last, we constantly strive to produce and offer the highest quality captive born reptiles for keepers and breeders all over the United States.
Today my wife and I proudly keep over 40 different species of reptiles, including some which are very rare and endangered. We work very hard to offer only the best animals, followed with the best customer service in the industry. Our customers mean a lot to us. We do our best to take care of the people who support us, and offer help and support for the lifetime of your pet and investment. This is our way of saying thank you, because without you we wouldn't be where we are today, doing what we love.
We attend many shows throughout the year and love meeting new people, so if you see us at a show, please come up and say hi! We would love to shake your hand and get to know you!
