My name is Scott Nellis and I've been raising and breeding snakes and a few lizards since 1996. I got interested in reptiles as a boy in Oklahoma when I would catch "horny toads" and fence lizards walking home from school in the nearby fields. It wasn't until 1994 that I became interested in raising and breeding reptiles in captivity. It started with 2 corn snakes and grew from there. Today, I specialize in California Kingsnakes, Ball Pythons, various boas, and Aussie pythons. Every now and then something new catches my eye and I might try breeding it. That's what happened with a trio of leopard geckos! So SNSnakes isn't all about snakes, but snakes are my main interest.
