My name is Michael de Groot and I am the creator of this website. I am an enthusiastic reptile keeper since 1997. I have kept many species throughout the years and despite the name of this website and haven't only kept python species and still don't only keep python species. Besides the rare python species that I keep I also keep several colubrid species and like to focus on corn snake mutations. I started keeping corn snakes in 1999 and sold my last one in 2004. At that time the corn snake was the most populair reptile in the world and it was something that stopped me in keeping corn snakes. After that I started keeping ball pythons and did this until 2013. I stopped keeping ball pythons for the same reason I stopped keeping corn snakes in 2004. I started to focus on the more rare python species. But I also still liked breeding color mutations. So in 2017 I decided to start keeping corn snakes again and started building a small collection of corn snakes and other colubrids. Troughout the years I have also kept other reptiles beside snakes like lizards and amphibians. At this time I also have a small collection with gecko, anole and frog species.
With the buttons below you can browse through my entire collection. Please enjoy and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
