About Dynasty Reptiles: Our Story
“It all started when I was a child. I was always fascinated with all types of animals, but there was always something about reptiles that caught my interest. I can remember when I started keeping Ring neck snakes and baby turtles that I had caught.”
Here at Dynasty Reptiles, we have a long history of breeding reptiles. We focus primarily on Ball Python morphs but have added a variety of passion projects throughout the years. We breed all of our available reptiles in house and produce a wide range of species including Woma Pythons, a variety of Kingsnakes, Carpet Pythons, Olive Pythons, Antaresia Pythons, many kinds of Boas, and even Crested Geckos.
Our Reptile Breeding History: How It Started
I was always fascinated with animals, but reptiles particularly piqued my interest. I grew up in an urban area with few reptiles to collect; but at the age of eleven, I finally convinced my parents to allow me to purchase a snake. I decided to get a brown water snake. As time passed, my water snake was getting larger and so was my collection. By the time I was thirteen, I had more than 10 snakes. As it often happens around that age, when high school came around I started to lose interest. It wasn’t until after graduation that I decided to get back into keeping reptiles.
In 1997 I decided to get a pair of Woma Pythons. Little did I know, they would be the start of a lifelong reptile breeding journey. They inspired the idea of breeding reptiles. And breeding snakes & other reptiles became my passion. Soon after, I created a small business called Dynasty Reptiles. I acquired a pair of V. Flavirufus (commonly known as Sand Monitors), a trio of Blue Tegus and a small colony of Bearded Dragons.
The Turning Point: The First Breeding Year
Although I was not expecting much production the first year, 1998 was an exciting one. I hatched out several clutches of V. Flavirufus, Blue Tegus and Bearded Dragons. But I had a big surprise in store that breeding season; I produced Albino Blue Tegus from the trio I had bought. It was the first year they were ever produced. With the season I had that year, I added more animals for breeding and decided I would try to make reptile breeding my full time job.
After having two successful years in breeding reptiles and having too much time on my hands, I decided to open a reptile shop called MIA Reptiles. Shortly after opening MIA Reptiles in 2001, I produced my first baby Woma Pythons. Watching the baby Womas come out of their eggs motivated me to add more snakes to my breeding colony. By 2002, I had accumulated a decent collection of Ball Pythons, Burmese Pythons, and an assortment of Boas. It was then that I began feeling overwhelmed with the amount of work I had running the store and maintaining a large collection of snakes and lizards.
Focusing on Breeding Snakes: Dynasty Reptiles' Rebirth
As things got busier and my workload got more intense, a change needed to be made. I partnered up with a friend of mine, and created ASF Reptiles. ASF Reptiles was a company Andre and I started to center around breeding snakes with a focus on Ball Python morphs. The company started to quickly started to expand at a rate faster than I could have imagined. It was then that I made the choice to sell my shop in order to focus on ASF Reptiles and my other breeding projects.
A few years later I bought out my partner, dissolved ASF Reptiles, and resurfaced Dynasty Reptiles, the company I had created so many years earlier. In time, I was able to buy, sell and produce more snakes each year. Today I have successfully grown my business from ten snakes in my garage to thousands in several warehouses.
