Justin Kobylka is a lifetime reptile lover and Ball Python breeder extraordinaire.
Like many in this business I’ve had an unexplainable attraction to cold-blooded creatures since birth, (or shortly thereafter). Throughout my life I’ve kept reptiles, early on it was usually anything I could find outside my house. In high school I began keeping different types of constrictors including Ball Pythons and a Boa Constrictor, a few local kingsnake species as well as a couple rattlesnakes I would find in rural Oklahoma. (Click here to see my first reptile video showing off some of my small high school collection.)
In college, I hid snakes in my dorm room and hatched out my first clutch of Sinaloan Kingsnakes in a small incubator under my bed. The next year the biology department of my University offered me a dedicated room in the Biology department to continue my breeding projects. It was around then that I discovered that the Ball Python could be tricked out with SWEET morphs… (at the time there were only a handful of mutations) the rest is history.
The first Ball Python morph I purchased was a Pastel followed by a Piebald. Have I mentioned these snake are addictive?!
I graduated from Southern Adventist University in 2005. After managing a medical/surgical practice for several years, I left that field to focus on my reptile endeavors full time. I am living in northeast Georgia with my wife Joy, son Graer, and daughter Aliya.
It is a dream come true to work with these amazing creatures as a career and serve reptile enthusiasts around the world.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I would love to be part of your passion for reptiles.
