“Hi John, I perused your on-line magazine and want to applaud you & and your professional staff for a job well done. The articles varied greatly from husbandry to “food for thought”. They were well written and extremely informative. I’m definitely going to subscribe…Thanks John for again serving the Herp Community…”
Shawn Heflick of NatGeo Wild Python Hunters had this to say about Herpetoculture House
“Recently, I was asked to review Herpetoculture House, a new online reptile and amphibian e-zine…and I was delightfully surprised. The articles are written by herpers for herpers, and cover everything from conservation to venomous. The subject matter is refreshing, informative and current. WELL DONE, to everyone involved!”
Justin Guyer of Herpin’ Time Radio had this to say “Herpeteculture House Ezine is a compendium of information that is filled with articles written by some the best and most knowledgeable people within the reptile community.”
Greg Stephens has this to say about Herpetoculture House Magazine “I just wanted to commend Herphousemag.com on producing an excellent publication. I have been a subscriber to another reptiles related magazine for quite sometime, and Herpetoculture House Ezine has far and away exceeded my expectations. The articles are well written and complete, unlike the previously mentioned and ever shrinking magazine. It is nice to be able to sit down with my Kindle and read quality articles without being bombarded with advertisements. Thanks again for a great publication”

Here’s another review from Kevin Oskow who would later become our Creative Director! “I was reading through issue 5 the other day and on page 6 there was an article about Mexican Night Snakes. Holy cow – they are beautiful. they have these big grey eyes, and it goes without saying that their patterns are remarkable. It is wonderful to read that they are docile and curious. Makes them good and interesting pets.
Thanks for the article, and I hope to see more of Mr. Guyers writing in the future.”
Here’s what Hillary B. had to say about reading an issue of Herpetoculture House before becoming a subscriber.
“I read the whole issue and it was great I loved all the articles and learned a few things. I can’t wait to read the next issue. I hope that you guys will keep this up for years to come its nice to have a mag that is not all about the advertisement. Also to be able to read the articles and be able to learn from them. My daughter reads one article a night before she goes to bed and then talks about it in the morning. Thanks again for such a good mag.”
Lillie Nyte was one of our first subscribers and has now become a columnist for Herpetoculture House magazine she had this to say when she first started reading.
“Herpetoculture House eZine was made by herp keepers for herp keepers. Their dedication truly shows in the quality articles contained within each issue. The best thing about this zine is that it focuses deeply on proper care of these amazing creatures. All too often information about proper caging and husbandry are glossed over in favor of breeding information or attempts to “sell” a species to those who are unprepared for a life long commitment to these animals. There are also very insightful articles about recent scientific findings and reptile interest (rather than human interest) stories. And the best part is? No need to flip through pages of advertisements as ads are kept to one page at the end of the zine.”
