I have the best job in the world…

Posted: October 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

…as a professional snake breeder, animal educator, or maybe it’s just a badass herper… I haven’t decided which one I like better, but they all beat being called a lawyer. 

Ever since I was a child, I’ve had a fascination with reptiles and dreamed of one day being able to work with them daily as my career. Well, 2017 has enabled me to do just that. I’ve produced, sold, and shipped more snakes this year than any year before. I’ve got big plans coming up on the horizon to take my operation to the next level! I will even be hiring a few people to work for me. Stay tuned for more information if you’re interested in working with me! 

As of today, my rodent colony has more than quadrupled since this same time last year! I have just under 400 breeder female rodents and will hit 500 soon enough!  I do plan at some point to offer live feeders to my local customers.  My prices will be very competitive and the quality second to none! 

In other news, I’ve found a commercial facility I want to buy so I can open a serpentarium and retail exotic pet store.  The space is perfect for what I want to do. It’s 3,100 square feet and has half an acre of land and enough room for 20 cars to park. I’m super excited about this this! Having a serpentarium has been my goal in life since I was 9 years old and first learned what a serpentarium was. I want the world to be able to come see my animals up close and personal and learn a few things about these amazing animals! My largest snake is a 12 to 13 foot albino burmese and she will look killer on display!  I plan to purchase a bigger snake too for the serpentarium!   

If taking care of the snakes, rats and designing a serpentarium wasn’t enough, I’m also working on a new eBook about ball pythons.  Everything I know about the species will be covered in this book including marketing,  sales, shipping, proving out morphs as well as other topics. If you have followed this blog for some time and enjoyed the content here, you will absolutely love the book. It goes into a lot of detail and will have amazing pictures of my collection! 

It’s really great to be able to live an amazing life!  I wake up each morning and love what I get to do each day. To everyone who’s purchased a snake from me this year, I truly appreciate it!  Your purchases have enabled me to turn my passion into a career I love! 

I have to get back to #livingthedream now though but make sure to subscribe to my instagram account @petervonlehe because  I post there a lot!  Oh, and if you’re looking for a new ball python,  please send me a text at 843 209 6941!  I still have a few super nice ones left this season.  

Thanks, Peter Ruegner
