Pioneering genetic innovation for Over 20 years

Whether you’re trying to produce your dream snake or turn your passion into profit, KINOVA is here to help with your next experiment.

We know we’re a little obsessed. But that’s precisely what it takes to raise the bar. Some might call us mad scientists.

At KINOVA, we obsess over understanding our animals – where they came from and what makes them unique. We’re constantly pushing the boundaries to create something insanely different and beautiful.

Humble Beginnings

“I was just a nerdy kid in rural Oklahoma with a love for reptiles – an unexplainable attraction to misunderstood cold-blooded creatures. Growing up I’d catch any native species I could find outside my house.

By high school, I began keeping exotic species, including Ball Pythons and Boa Constrictors – even a few rattlesnakes I found in the backyard. I hatched my first clutch of Sinaloan Kingsnakes in a small incubator under the bed in my college dorm room. When the school found out, the university offered me a dedicated space in the biology department to continue my breeding projects.

It was shortly after that I discovered Ball Pythons could be tricked out with SWEET paint jobs… the rest is history!

20 years later, the passion for these creatures has led to founding my dream company, working with these amazing animals and being a driving force behind a worldwide reptile phenomenon!”

Building the Dream Team

Managing 2,000 reptiles requires an expert team that shares the passion we’ve held onto from the beginning. Over the years, Kinova recruited an amazing team.
