The Reptile Report - Personalities- A Media Resource

My name is Robyn Markland and I have been keeping and breeding reptiles for over 20 years. I have worked with many different species, including all types of snakes (boas, pythons and colubrids, all non-venomous), lizards, and geckos.

Along with my partner Chad Brown, I have daily involvement in a number of business ventures, including The Reptile Report, and Pro Exotics Reptiles. aggregates news and discussion from around the reptile, amphibian and invertebrate worlds. It is a valuable site that helps you stay current with over 100 different reptile forums and news sources. We are working to make The Reptile Report the central destination for the online reptile, amphibian and invert worlds. is an online shipping interface for (non-venomous) live reptiles and amphibians. We provide the packaging, knowledge and support for hobbyists and businesses alike to safely and responsibly ship live reptiles and amphibians around the country. We have shipped over 250,000 live reptiles successfully, we are the industry leader in reptile shipping.

Our reptile businesses work to support the political lobbying arm of the reptile industry, including the organizations USARK, PIJAC and US Herp Alliance. These organizations fight both local and national legislation aimed to restrict the ownership and care of reptiles in captivity.

I have published multiple husbandry articles in Reptiles Magazine and have appeared as a guest on a variety of reptile radio programs, including Herp Nation Radio, Urban Jungles Radio, Reptile Radio, Herp Herp Hooray and Herpin Time. I am comfortable speaking in front of crowds, and I am “One-Take Johnny” on video, even if I am not always held to an exact one-take standard.

Chad and I did a recent interview that covered some of our Pro Exotics history, there is some quick background information available there.
