We are talking to Darren Whittaker on tonights show! Here is some backround from the man himself.
I started keeping reptiles around 97/98.
I have loved reptiles all my life, just like sharks the ocean and fishing.
Although I don't go to the beach anymore as I get rolled back into the water by green peace. :-)
My passion started when I got hands on with a RBB when I was around 10 or 11 years of age.
Was addicted ever since, although my parents would never let me have a reptile and my dad thought they should all be dead there was no way they could stop me getting one...eventually.
So that changed when I bought a house in '97 and got my first snake not long after that.
My parents now love the scaly little critters which is nice.
A few species I'm glad I kept, some shitty MD morph and some crappy striped jungles. :D
I currently keep MDs, Barkley locale Stimmies, Blonde Macs, normal Macs, T+ children's, Het albino Macs, water pythons, coastal carpets, albino Darwin's, womas, RSPs, B&W jungles, olives and some beardies for the kids.
I think that's it.
I am really getting into the genetics now, I'm loving all these different mutations and wonder what their combinations will create.
One of the things I noticed 8-10 years ago whilst visiting pet shops, that most customers didn't care what locality an animal was from, most had no idea what Georgetown stimmy was and didn't care, they just wanted a pretty snake.
I said then that people will buy what they like the look of over any specific locale, it is only those that are more into their locales that care. The average punter just wants a cool looking snake.
I am trying to concentrate on visually appealing snakes these days, eventually a whole heap of new morphs!
OK tonight's so is about what ever. lol If you've got something you want to talk about on the air. Feel Free to call into the show and let us know what it is on your mind. As with all Free For All shows. There's no telling what we may do or say. lol So come out and join the fun and if you feel like calling in and adding to the fun. Feel free to call in and join us. So come out and join the only Reptile Show that let's the callers be a major part of the show.
Tonight's show will spotlight the smaller Lizards of the hobby. We'll talk about several different species. Like beardies and Geckos and such. Topics like how to choose one right for you. Plus caring for them and things like pros and cons of raising yur own feeders or buying them. Should be a good show. So come join us for some fun.
Ok last night's show kinda got off topic. So let's try this again. Let's talk about the smaller lizard . I honestly think we're missing out on some cool experiences not keeping them. So tonight we'll talk about some of these species and possiblly some other stuff too. lol We'll try a little harder to stay on topic tonight. So come out and join us for some fun and interesting conversation.
This show we will be talking about the smaller lizard species that are kept in the Hobby. We'll cover several species if we have time to get to it. If not this show will carry on into other shows. If so I will make sure and number them so they can be kept straight.
