Spring is in full swing at TBC and we have some great updates to share! In addition to what we hope will be a promising hatching season, we've been busy raising awareness about anti-herp legislation, upgrading our husbandry tools and expanding on our various T-shirt (and other merch) designs!
Fighting Anti-Herp Laws
First things first - are you a member of USARK yet? If not, we highly encourage you to stop what you're doing and join right now. The United States Association of Reptile Keepers is our hobby's representative in the political realm, and they are leading the fight against anti-reptile legislation across the US. Visit them at https://usark.org and lend your support. Stay up to date on alerts, and PLEASE take action against impending legislation, even if you don't live in the affected states or keep the affected species. The only way we will be successful in this fight is through unity across the hobby!
We have been using Husbandry.Pro for several months now, and absolutely LOVE how easy this app makes it to keep records on our collection. It is hands-down the BEST herpetocultural tracking app available, and we've tried them all! H.P is feature-rich but not overwhelming, and as long as you're willing to keep up with the data entry it provides a highly detailed view of individual animals, as well as trends across an entire collection. We're using it for everything from bloodline tracking to breeding records, and standard husbandry notes such as cleaning, weights, feeding, shedding, etc. We're looking forward to passing these notes along to our customers with the purchase of an animal, and even better - the Husbandry.Pro developers are working on a feature that allows the transfer of an animal from one user to another. Check them out at https://husbandry.pro/ and see if one of their plans is the right fit for you. We HIGHLY recommend this app to help level up your record-keeping game!
We've had a ton of requests for t-shirts and other merchandise, and recently rolled out some new designs available on a variety of items. Here's a sneak peek - check out our Redbubble shop to order. More stuff on the way, so stay tuned!
Breeding Season Updates
And now, the moment we've all been waiting for...breeding season updates! While 2021 won't be a huge season, what it lacks in quantity it more than surpasses in quality. We have confirmed ovulations from 3 females and can't wait to see what the future holds.
As of now, we're hoping for a nice clutch of curtus from Tux (Hartwig line) to Joan (Jet line), and brongersmai from Bravado x Epitome (Marter x Marter), and a repeat pairing of TBC Whiplash x Jewel (TBC Manic Panic x Marter). These babies will go quickly, so if you're looking for some nice, friendly Sumatran STPs or EXTREMELY red bloods, get on our list ASAP!
We'll be updating our Clutch Records page for 2021 as the season progresses, so check back often!
