At Pear of Balls we breed reptiles for the love and passion we have for their species. We breed for the joy of it, as a hobby, and to see our animals thrive enough to carry on their lineage. 
We strive to breed docile, active, and beautiful reptiles and we take steps to make it so. 

As with anyone interested in reptiles my first experience with them was as a kid with watching and catching wild lizards and snakes. The first "real" snake I owned was a red tailed boa who came home in a plastic sandwich tub. It's been several years since then and he has grown several feet, and is the most docile animal I have ever met. He has contributed to my drive of wanting to raise calm and docile reptiles.

My first experience with breeding for genetics was with rodents. It was where my love for breeding tri-colors was born when my C-locus tri-colored mouse project became successful. It was not long after I discovered that snakes came in the pied pattern and it became an instant goal to work with the most beautiful animal and pattern morphed into one.

Ideal Serpent Conduct 
​Ideal Serpent Conduct is a way to cultivate the ideal reptile.

This started as a joke to give a fancy and unnecessary name to the basic everyday care and handling given to our reptiles. It's a new trend with dogs to raise them with everyday stimuli; but we have always done this with all our reptiles not only the snakes.

We give our reptiles the best chance to turn into calm and stable adults by giving great attention to them as they age. This can also be used to help stabilize otherwise unstable adults who came from other sources. This has come naturally to us, as it just makes sense.

Our reptiles live indoors in an active house with sounds, vibrations, movements, and people who watch and handle them regularly. They will become used to all sorts of ordinary activities as an adult. This not only makes them much more enjoyable to handle, but also makes them more interactive in their enclosure and less skittish. They become a well rounded reptile that doesn't mind a quick waved hand, or a vacuum, or being handled and touched by anyone.
