Professional Herpetoculture for the Pet Trade

What does 'quality reptiles' really mean? To many breeders, it simply means selecting the most attractive patterns or colors. While this is important, we believe it is also important to select healthy vigorous animals. There is little point in producing the prettiest specimens if they lack the will to survive or have genetic disorders. At VMS, we use decades of experience to carefully select for the best balance of all traits. Explore our web site and experience the difference!

VMS is proud to offer top quality reptiles at realistic prices, along with some of the most detailed information available today.

Locale Specific Corns Wanted!

We are seeking to acquire specimens of Corn Snakes (Pantherophis guttata) collected or descended from known localities. Point of origin of all specimens must be traceable to at least a specific county.

We will pay very fair prices or trade value, and a premium will be given for pairs. Let us know what you might have!

Please note: We are interested in any and all species/subspecies from the guttata complex, such as Kisatchie, Keys, etc., but we cannot accept specimens of emoryi due to Colorado law.

Hognose Snakes Wanted!

We are seeking to trade for specimens of Western Hognose (Heterodon nasicus ssp.) and Mexican Hognose (Heterodon kennerlyi), all color and pattern mutations and particularly specimens from known localities.

We will offer very fair trade value, and a premium will be given for pairs/females. Let us know what you might have and what you are interested in receiving!
