Looking for Osborne Reptiles (Brandon Osborne) or Bartley Reptiles (Clint Bartley)?? You found us! The two companies, breeders, and friends have combined to form Metazotics. This union allows not only each to continue to produce the quality animals each has built their reputations on but to now greatly expand their collections. This means more of what they have worked with for years as well as new species!
Brandon Osborne (formally Osborne Reptiles)-
Exceptional quality captive bred snakes. Specializing in Piebald Ball Python Combos.
With well over 20 years experience breeding snakes, Brandon has developed a solid reputation as a respected breeder with spectacular Florida King morphs and Green Tree Pythons. In the mid 90s Brandon maintained a large facility for commercial reptile breeder and gained success at breeding many dozens of species of Boas, Pythons, and Colubrids.
Since 2002, efforts in Ball Pythons have been even more focused on Piebalds and combos with the Pied gene. In 2010 Osborne Reptiles produced the world's first Pewter Pied and in 2012 the world's first Sterling Pied. In the process of these accomplishments, we also hatched a few surprising looks we never expected, including the Urban Camo and many Sandblast combos. I hope to see more unique and exciting animals hatching in the seasons to come.
We continue to expand, evolve, and strive to offer exceptional animals, both visually and in perfect health. We don't offer a wide variety of animals but what we do have is the best of its kind. Our success depends on your success and we happily offer after-sale consultation so you achieve maximum results.
Clint Bartley (formally Bartley Reptiles)-
For over 30 years, I kept, learned from, bred, and admired reptiles. This passion and love for the herp hobby has grown into a nice collection of snakes. While I work with many species, colubrids and asian rat snakes have become my emphasis and passion. Some of our highlights are our success with Chinese king rats, green bush rats, mandarins, and my most proud moment was being the 2nd person to produce bella rats in the US and the first to do it twice in the states!
Over the past several years, Bartley Reptiles has found itself greatly expanding the black rat snake morph collection and becoming on the forefront of their movement forward in the hobby. Although a common snake in the field, the focused breeding of combos and identification of those traits was a rarity... until now :) I care about the quality of life for our animals, the happiness of our customers, and service long after the sale.
Metazotics looks forward to working for you!
