About Us: Larry Kenton
To share a little About Us, I have to start at the beginning…
In the spring of 1956, I caught my first snake and I’ve been hooked ever since. So for the past 65 years, I have been learning all that I can about the husbandry of snakes and other reptiles.
In 1978 I hatched my first snakes. But this wasn’t just my beginning. It was also the start of what would become the Maryland Reptile Farm – Diamondback Productions LLC. And the rest, as they say, became history!
But today, we are a family-owned and operated business. Also, my son, Jason, is learning the ropes of promoting our shows. So we also treat our sponsors, vendors, and fans like family.
All of the staff at Maryland Reptile Farm are firm believers in captive-bred and born herps and we will sell nothing else. Due to this, we started selling herp books at a time when all you could find in a store were books aimed at the first-time owner and generally full of bad information.
Our book inventory has grown to be one of the finest and largest in the US. We also carry heating supplies and various other herp supplies.
Don’t forget to check out our Show section; we currently promote shows in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia regularly.
