Jake Thomas Unreal Reptiles

"I have recently received a number of animals from Peter & Jo and all I can say is WOW! It is not only the quality of the animals but the customer service and extensive history of not just that animal but their full lineage. Absoloutely unreal! would recommend to anyone."

Chris Kupper Kupper's Critters

"After contacting Peter and I explained my project goals he was kind enough to release some of his personal holdbacks to get me on my way. The animals were trouble free, a testiment to the quality and health known to leave his facilty. Couldn't recommend him any higher for those new to the hobby or to experienced keepers - 10/10"

Mark Taylor Reptilia Australia

I started buying snakes from Peter & Jo Birch about 6 years ago. After doing a lot of research of various breeders & trying to find the best looking & healthiest antaresia, I really couldn't go past them. They provide a wealth of information before purchase to make sure you have the correct set-up to keep your new snake at its best and also plenty of after sales support too, if you need it. I can't recommend them highly enough.
