REHKER REPTILES is owned and operated by Michael Rehker and is a reptile breeding hobbyist facility that specializes in genetic color and pattern mutations in ball pythons. I have been keeping and breeding various reptiles for over 20 years, and hatched my first clutch of pastel ball python eggs back in 2003. I also promote wildlife conservation, education and research...and am a proud advocate of the USARK.
Rehker Reptiles is located just south of Nashville, Tennessee. Care of the animals is priority one, so my collection is given the utmost attention and remains at a manageable level. I pride myself at having a collection full of top quality, healthy animals with a diverse genetic background.
Customer service is very important to me, and I've worked hard to gain and maintain the good standing I enjoy in the herp community. You will be treated with respect, honesty, and integrity. I selectively breed for the best examples of each trait, producing offspring of the highest caliber and worthy of your investment.
Currently my focus is on ball pythons, but other species will be available in the future. Emails, texts, and calls will be returned as quickly as possible. If you do not hear back from me within 24 hours of sending your message, please try again, as chances are it slipped through the cracks or I did not receive it.
Fascinated with cold blooded creatures for as long as I can remember, it's been a true passion of mine to study, keep and breed a large variety of reptiles throughout my life. I've been keeping reptiles since I was a young kid, with my very first reptile pet being a southern black racer that was given to me by a friend. After watching that beauty thrive in captivity in my bedroom, I was hooked and knew I wanted to be herper. From there I acquired and kept a variety of species including tegus, blue tongue skinks, ball pythons, bearded dragons, crested geckos, blood pythons, leopard geckos, chameleons, hognose snakes, boa constrictors, chondros and a few others. I've had the pleasure of working in the Unseen New World exhibit house (herpetology department) at the Nashville Zoo. Over the years I've been very successful at raising and keeping many species and have decided to focus on one of my all time favorites - ball pythons. The genetic diversity found in ball pythons is incredible and keeps me excited to keep producing these amazing animals. The unlimited morphological possibilities make the ball python not only a sound investment, but a truly beautiful one at that.

If an acceptable replacement is not available then a full refund shall be issued.

Shipping is done by Fed Ex Priority Overnight, in a properly insulated box, using Ship Your Reptiles. Please contact me so I can give you a proper price quote. Orders over $1000 ship for free. I guarantee my snakes to be healthy, feeding, and properly sexed unless otherwise agreed upon. Once an animal leaves my facility, I have no control over the care you offer, or that you fail to provide to your animals. I guarantee my animals to be in perfect health upon arrival. All sold animals will have proper body weight and showing no physical signs of illness. If properly acclimated and cared for, my animals should do excellent for you. It's difficult to put a longer term guarantee on my animals because once you receive them, I have no way of controlling how they are cared for. If I do not hear from you, I will consider our transaction complete. I must be notified IMMEDIATELY upon arrival (within 1 hour) if there appears to be an issue with your snake. Any issues arising after 24 hours will be handled on an individual basis. You will be treated fairly, and I ask the same in return.
