Hi! I’ve been lurking for a bit, and figured it may be time to post more since we have a few reptiles to share…
I’m Wren, and we just launched our small reptile business in BC, Canada: Herbs and Herps! Currently, we are selling mainly isopods, however, we are planning on breeding a small variety of reptiles. We, so far, are planning on breeding ball pythons, cape house snakes, Mexican black kingsnakes, crested geckos, corn snakes, but with a strong focus on plains hognose snakes. Many of our reptiles are rescues or rehomes!
We all work in the VFX industry (from home), and I currently work the graveyard shift so my schedule is very lopsided. But, it means I have plenty of time to work on hobby-related things!
I apologize if this is gonna be long-winded, but this is the first time I’ve introduced our collection directly to the reptile community (not just regular social media). Without further ado, meet the kiddos!
MILO - 1.0 Lesser Ball Python (Our first boy!)
WESTLEY - 1.0 Pastel Banana Enchi Woma '19 (Father of a hopeful 2022 clutch)
RIPLEY - 0.1 Pastel '17 (Rescue - In shed / Mom to the hopeful clutch!)
Ripley came from not the best background, and was kept in very poor conditions. She’s absolutely covered in scars from rat bites because the previous owner used to love (they said love) to watch her kill live rats (up to 5x a week). She’s doing so much better now!
CAPE HOUSE SNAKES
ANDROMEDA - 0.1 Normal het Albino '19 (Produced by Superior Serpents)
ICARUS - 1.0 T-(?) Albino '20 (Produced by Superior Serpents, not related to Andromeda)
ADONIS (Donnie) - 1.0 Kahl Sunglow Boa Imperator’19
AMARA - 0.1 Brazillian Rainbow Boa '19
CALLIOPE - 0.1 -T Albino (Central) Motley Boa Imperator '16
Calliope is part of a group of three snakes (Meriadoc and Peregrin) that may have come in contact with crypto-positive snakes in their last home. She has tested negative once, and is getting two more tests before formally leaving quarantine. She also has a few burn(?) scars along her back, but is such a sweet big girl!
ERIS - 0.1 Colombian Rainbow Boa '18
MILITSA - 0.1 Anery Stripe Kenyan Sand Boa '20 (Produced by Gecko Bae)
IRVA - 0.1 Amel (Morphs TBA, currently IDing) '19
KAHLUA - 1.0 (Morphs TBA, currently IDing) '16
TEQUILA - 0.1 Hypo (Morphs TBA, currently IDing) '16
She is quite overweight from her previous home, and we are working on getting it down. She will be paired with Kahlua this year in hopes that we can prove some hets out and get her hips slimmer!
MEXICAN BLACK KING SNAKES
EURYDICE - 0.1 Normal '20 (Bred by Canadian Mouseman, potentially a European bloodline)
ORPHEUS - 1.0 Normal '20 (Produced by Canadian Mouseman)
PLAINS HOGNOSE SNAKES

BIQUINHO - 0.0.1 '21 (Hatched and raised by us, unknown sire, dame is Canelinha)
CANELINHA - 0.1 Extreme Harlequin '16
Mom to all our current babies, but the previous owner refuses to give us photos of who she was paired with. Apparently, it was a very red extreme harley, but because we don’t know yet, we are holding back the babies until 10 grams to get a better idea of their lineage.

HABANERA - 0.1 Harlequin Dalmatian '19

GNOCCHI - 0.0.1 Samurai Ornate Pac-Man Frog '21

Too many to post all their pictures, but I have all the isopod species I keep on my website! We are currently breeding mealworms, crickets, melanogaster fruitflies, and over 15 types of isopods. We also have two jumping spiders (Phidippus regius/audax)!
Thank you so so much for reading! I look forward to participating more in this community, albeit I may forget to respond occasionally! You can find on other sites down below, but absolutely no pressure
