A good motto to live by! ~ October 25th, 2012
I came across this several years ago. I keep it in my office, in my Bible and I always take it in my supplies to all the snake shows I go to. It is a quote from James Michener. "A master in the art of living draws no distinction between his work, his play, his labor, his leisure, his mind, his body, his education, his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he is always doing both."
Life lived any other way is exhausting!
October 25, 2012 ~ October 25th, 2012
If you haven't been back to my page for a while, glad you are back. I have more babies on my available page than ever before; some of it is incredible, like infernos! I have had several firsts for me this year including a Lesser Pastel Clown male! Allan Riis was kind enough to include it's picture on the World Of Ball Pythons. Also, I have at least two firsts that are also listed on the World; please check these out: Toffino Spider, Hypo Black Pastel Mojave and soon to be listed are a first Satin Cinnamon. It's been a great year, and probably like you are already pairing for next year. Thanks for your support and will see you along the way!
Summer 2012 ~ July 22nd, 2012
It has been too long since I updated my website, it is already July 22, 2012. As many of you know, my family experienced a fire last year. My veterinary clinic burned on Oct 31, 2011 and it has been a hectic 8 or 9 months rebuilding. We should move back in in less than one month. Thanks for all your prayers and support. I spent the afternoon updating my available animals, so I hope you might enjoy looking around. I plan on traveling to Daytona for the annual expo in a few weeks. i am not even half way through my hatching season, so stay tuned for things like crystals, pastel clowns, lesser clowns, criders, more hidden gene woma stuff and much more. Hope to see many of you. We will also be in Tinley, so come by and say hi! My best to all of you. Tom Harbin Reptiles
Christmas news ~ December 22nd, 2011
It's hard to believe it's near Christmas, but here it is. Thanks to all who have helped me have a good year. I'm looking forward to some great new projects for me; several firsts. I bought heavy into the Toffee project and should be able to produce some Toffee's and Toffino's this year, maybe even some combos like Spider Toffino's. It's possible to have Crider caramels and even a few Spider Crider caramels. I'm looking for Crystals, Super Crystals, lots of ghost morphs, Killer Clowns, Pastel Clowns, and of course clowns. Did I mention Dreamsicles, Pastel superstripes, Platinums, Leopard Pieds and something I have wanted to produce along and have missed it is Hypo Pins. Already have over 20 females with their first breeding as of today! Something else I'm very proud of is I purchased a Ultrasound unit to use at home with the snakes. It is really helping to see which females haven't begun to move and which ones are promising. I hope to get to meet more of you in the coming year. Merry Christmas! Tom
Welcome to 2011 ~ July 20th, 2011
This is a bit late, but there are lots of new hatchlings posted here. Please have a look. I have produced a few things that are not here too, but they will be staying with me such as: A male super mystic, a female pin crystal, 2 female bumblebellies, a female Queenbee yellowbelly. Still several clutches in the incubator, so check back. Also, Justin Kobylka was kind enough to do a Morph 101 with a special clutch of mine this year. Have a look on Youtube at this location: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJWgcG-9nls
Thanks for all your support! tom
Deserts have hatched ~ July 22nd, 2010
My first Desert Bee is here, by the way, she is! Have a look at her and tell me what you think! Also several other deserts for sale.
National Breeders Expo ~ July 7th, 2010
I will again be set up at the Daytona show. I look forward to this every year, a great chance to be with a lot of you, sell a few snakes and buy a few. I will be at tables 365 and 366. Please stop by; I look forward to seeing you!
What's happening in 2010? ~ March 24th, 2010
July 4, 2010 - My first clutch hatched on Independence day. Will be one of my highlight clutches of the year. It was from my spider x desert cross. 5 eggs; results: 1.1 deserts, 0.1 desert spider, 0.1 normal and 0.1 spider. Since the Desert Spider was a female, I'll probably sell her and try for a male next year. Pics to follow shortly. I should have lots of babies coming in the next few weeks. Please watch my available page.
Lots of breeding and ovulation activity as of March 25, 2010. I'm looking forward to some firsts for me this year including: Desert combos with Spider, Fire and Pinstripe. I hope to have more Pastel clowns. I hope to have my first Mystic Potion, my first Superstripes, my first Pinstripe super pastels, and Hypo Lesser/Mojo babies. There's lots more coming, so 2010 should be a big and fun year! Visit often, and I'll keep what's new current here.
Be sure and have a look at what's available.
Thanks to all my patrons who have made this collection possible. Be sure and look for a pic of my grandson here
