“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!”

Greg Stephens Reader Review

Greg Stephens has this to say about Herpetoculture House Magazine “I just wanted to commend 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”

Lillie Nyte Reader Review

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.”

Lillie now authors our Herpetoculture 101 column!

 Herpetoculture House Magazine Welcomes Ron Tremper & Matt Herbert

 Herpetoculture House Magazine a wholly owned subsidiary of The Reptile Apartment Group has expanded by welcoming two new columnists to the magazine. Ron Tremper most well known for being the absolute premier leopard gecko breeder in the world Ron has decided to grace our pages exclusively with “The Tremper Insider” which will be a column looking at varying trends and other herpetocultural interests that occur within the reptile industry.

Matt Herbert is well known for his humorous view of the world at large on the various social networks. He has been kind enough to join our team of columnists to turn what some may say is a ‘jaded eye’ towards the herpetoculture industry as he writes “Takes on Herpetoculture: An Irreverent Look at Reptile Culture.” He will be taking a curious and humorous look at the industry that we are all a part of and give it a lighter side making us cry with laughter.

Review, Herpetoculture House Magazine, V2, I4

I must admit to a bit of hesitation upon being asked to review Herpetoculture House Magazine.  As a career herpetologist and lifelong herpetoculturist, I view the explosion of interest in my field with both admiration and skepticism.  On the one hand, wonderful books and magazines have been published in recent years, and these are much appreciated by those of us who grew up scouring libraries and used bookstores for the works of Raymond Ditmars and the other legendary authors.  However, the current prevalence of often poorly-researched and hastily-published books and internet material is very disheartening.  Even in well-respected zoos, where I have spent much of my career, the quality of the entry-level staff often leaves something to be desired (although there are, happily, many serious young people about as well).
