– [Brian] Momma! (wooing) She is fired up right now. Whoa. We’ll get you back in
there, Mama, good job. (upbeat music) Hey, good morning everyday,
and welcome to the vlog! I hope your start of the day
is absolutely incredible. I’m actually gonna head over to BHB, and we have to collect a
few ball python clutches here in a minute. But I wanted to make this a
little bit of an update vlog, if you guys don’t mind. And I am standing in front of Lucy, and I want to tell you
she is doing amazing. You guys that have been following along know all of the drama that has happened with her egg binding and
then eventually she passing, and then now eating and doing well. I did want to update you,
just so you guys know, Lucy has bred for the last time. Absolutely will not take any risks of breeding my beautiful
girl, Lucy, again. There is no doubt I’m
not gonna take that risk. So, for those of you that have asked, “Will you breed Lucy in the future?”. The answer is no. She’s done, we’re just gonna keep her, now that she’s back in
there, I don’t want to take any chances of ever
losing that girl again. With that said, let’s go ahead and pull the ball python clutches. Promise I’m down here in
the dungeon with Kelsey and we have some clutches of ball pythons. What’s the first one? – Up first is a champaign female, bred to a calico pin yellow belly, and an enchi pin banana. – Okay, so we don’t know
what’s gonna happen there, but that’s cool. And I love this girl. I remember having her since
she was an absolute baby. And she is a beastie! Look at her and look
at these eggs in there. Hoo-hoo! Absolutely amazing. So let’s see what we have. All right, look at that. – Wow, good clutch!
– Ooh, nice. Beautiful clutch. She is such a gorgeous animal. And again, when these hatch out, we’ll know what the father is, but either way, that’s pretty amazing. Oh my God, look at those
beautiful, big eggs. And it’s really awesome
because remember yesterday, we had some fertility issues
where we just had some bad fertility which is just weird because all year, our fertility has been really, really good. So I’m glad that we’re back
to a 100% fertile clutch. You can see these eggs
might have got rolled just a little bit so we’ll
candle them just to make sure. But how many do we have? – [Kelsey] One, two, three,
four, five, six, seven! – Seven beautiful eggs. I cannot wait. Oh, and for those of you
that want egg cutting, we’re less than three weeks away from the first clutch
that we can actually cut. (upbeat music) I know a lot of you guys
are really interested in my Reptile Tycoon breeding app. So if you want to be a snake breeder kind of on a cyber level,
that’s why we’re making an app that was supposed to
launch the closed beta a couple weeks back but we
decided to do a big change where you basically could become a breeder where you have your own
snakes, you put them together, you hatch babies and you
grow your collection. I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun. And basically, what it’ll be, is you’ll be able to go in
and you’ll clean the cage, you’ll change the water,
you’ll feed the snakes and as they’re healthy, you
can actually put them together, get eggs, and then hatch those eggs. And basically, what ends up happening, is that as you hatch
them you can sell them. You can trade them to other players, and grow your colony from your bedroom, to a building, to a big facility, and then, eventually, maybe
even open up a reptarium. I think it’s just gonna be really cool. But because we wanted to
kind of change the whole idea of the game a little bit
a couple of weeks ago, it’s kind of pushed off. So it looks like we’re about two and half, maybe three weeks tops,
from launching closed beta. We have a bunch of people
already signed up for that. So it’s gonna be absolutely amazing. And then we’ll be in the closed beta phase for a short period of time. Maybe a month, month and a half, and then we’ll make all our fixes, all the suggestions that people
are playing the closed beta will be implemented,
and then with any luck by the end of summer we’ll be
able to launch to everyone! And you guys can be a snake breeder, or a reptile breeder,
whatever the case may be. I can’t wait. It’s really one of the
most exciting things I’ve done in a long time. This game’s been on my mind
for probably five years. So the fact that we’re so
close to kind of launching it is pretty exciting. (upbeat music) Now, this next clutch,
is pretty interesting. And, again, it shows you
how the egg binding thing can happen or not happen. And, why at first, I wasn’t
worried about Lucy, at all, is that this girl here,
this pastel yellow belly, actually laid one egg, I don’t
know, five or six days ago, and, sure enough, today, look it. She’s wrapped around a clutch. Look at that. Perfect! She looks great, and what was she bred to? – She was bread to a dragonfly. – [Man] Okay, dragonfly. All right, good, so we can
get some super dragonflies, and a whole bunch of different stuff, super flies, and so on like that. So, let’s go ahead and whoa, mama! (wooing) She is fired up right now! Whoa! (upbeat music) – And, I’ll tell you what,
mama was definitely not happy about that at all. What do we have here? – [Kelsey] We have five
eggs, so six in total. – [Man] Six in total,
and what’s interesting is you can see this egg was
laid four or five days ago, so it’s interesting, is that
egg early or these eggs late? Regardless, if they’re late,
we might have a problem with the clutch, but they look so good. My gut feeling is this one might have been a little bit early, so we’ll
see, I’ll keep you guys updated on the progress of this clutch. I couldn’t be more
excited, one week from day starts the new era in the vlog! That’s right, my buddy, Jay,
that does all those really beautiful shots, and I’ve
been trying my best to kind of copy him a little bit, with shots like this. (upbeat music) You know, I’ve always
loved telling the story, and I’ve always been into cinematography, and just kind of beautiful
shots, but the fact is, when I’m a one man team,
there’s only so much I can do. You know? I have to film, I have to edit,
I have to set up a tripod, everything like that, and the fact is, is that having a second person is gonna be absolutely amazing. I think it’s gonna take the story telling, the kind of overall beauty of
the vlog, to the next level. But with that said, we
listen to a few things that you guys said,
and we kind of did that six day experiment a month ago, we’re definitely gonna have
a lot more first person, with me kind of talking
to you just like I am now. We’re gonna definitely
work on the music volumes, and all that stuff, but I’m telling you, we have so much amazing things planned. It’s gonna really take the
vlog to the next level, and not just the vlog, I’ll tell you more about
that in a little bit. One of the things we wanna do, and I need some help from you guys, is we wanna start doing
a little bit of Q and A, just to add it in here and there, maybe once a week, once every
couple of weeks, or whatever. So do me a favor right
now, if you want to record on your phone horizontally,
not vertically, horizontally, record a question for me,
send it over to my buddy, Jay Tomsky at his Instagram,
I’ll put right down here, @JAYTOMSKY, and he will
actually take your questions and I’ll answer them live on the vlog. I just think it’s gonna be a cool thing, but we have tons of really amazing ideas that are gonna start to get
implemented over the next weeks and months. Next stop, another
beautiful clutch right here. Which one is this one bred to? – This is a normal female,
bred to a pastel kingspin. – [Man] Oh, okay, a pastel kingspin. She’s another cranky little momma. (wooing) It’s okay momma, it’s gonna be okay. So, again, that pastel kingpin
has all kinds of stuff in it, it has pastel, it has
pin stripe, it has lesser and it has spider in it, and
of course this girl, whoa! She almost got me! All right, go get those eggs
before momma goes crazy here. Woo doggy, come one momma,
it’s okay sweetheart. It’s all right, it’s all right. Oh! It’s okay, baby, it’s
all right, you’re okay. (wooing) She is crazy, we definitely
gonna have to take that one top of the egg off. I can’t believe her, she’s so nuts. How many eggs do we have in this clutch? – [Kelsey] One, two,
three, four, five, six. – Six beautiful eggs, all right. We’ll get you back in
there, momma, good job. Whoa! (upbeat music) Yeah, you guys remember the tipster? My drinking game? We have some really cool stuff coming up. So, with any luck, we’re
gonna actually launch in June, and then that Vat19 is
doing something in July, and then hopefully a whole
bunch of other YouTubers are gonna be in doing some stuff. Not only can you, if
you’re an adult, of course, drink some beer this way, and you can go as long as you possibly want,
but what’s really cool is that Noah and Eric are probably
gonna showcase this, where you can really do some
really gross stuff in these. And the challenge would
be with chocolate milk mixes with orange juice,
mixes with high C, or something like that,
can you drink that? So, it’s gonna be really fun. Again, I’m excited about the tipster.
will be the website, so keep an eye on that. Again, if I’m lucky at all,
we’ll get this thing done and out sometime in June. For those of you guys
that’ve been following along, I hope that you enjoy and, by
the way, it’s patent pended, so don’t go try to steal my idea. (upbeat music) Next stop, is obviously a
spider ball python that has, whoa gosh! What’s with all these moms today? (Kelsey laughs) They’re all feisty. – They’re nuts! – Oh my gosh, so we have one
egg out over there for sure. Come on, mom, you’re okay. And what was she bred to? – She was bred to a super
pastel black pastel bamboo woma. – Oh my gosh, that’s a lot
of stuff going on, there! That is a lot of genes, for sure. So this should be a really cool clutch. Oh my gosh, momma, it’s okay. You’re gonna be all right, mom. I’ll help you out by getting
this girl out of here, get these eggs out here,
and it looks like, again, a beautiful clutch, for sure. – There I go. – There we go, again, a couple
of eggs just on the very top there that might not fit in here. How many eggs in this clutch? – One, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight. – Eight eggs. So weird, yesterday we had infertility, we had about 50% fertility,
today 100% fertility. So, that just shows you the ups
and downs of snake breeding, I told you guys that yesterday. Regardless, another amazing
day, Kelsey, thank you so much. – Thank you. (upbeat music) – You know, sometimes, every now and then, when I’m just walking by, a
snake will kind of catch my eye and I’ll just be like, “Oh, my gosh! That thing
is absolutely gorgeous!”. And, I figured, if it caught my eyes, I can at least share it with you guys. Of course, this a beautiful bull snake, that’s head for albino. I tell you, I love albino bull snakes. They’re absolutely incredible. This is another one
that caught my eye, too. Oh, my gosh, look at that! This is a mosaic California king snake, what a beautiful animal. And, again, those mosaics is actually like a polygenic trade that we bred
over years to just kind of make a really cool patterned animal. And the first ones we produced were probably like 15 years
ago, and we kind of termed them mosaic Cal kings, and
now it’s kind of cool to see other people working
the project, as well. So, that’s an animal that
looks great, so, anyways, just want to take a quick
break from all those updates, to show you a couple of cool snakes. (upbeat music) We’re really getting going
on the pre-production for the action adventure
series, that will be launching later this fall, and the first part of it is actually gonna be in Australia. We’re gonna shoot a six-part series, they’re gonna probably
be about 20 minutes long, it’s gonna feel more like
television on YouTube, but then, we’re gonna have six
behind-the-scenes, as well, where you guys can kind of follow along with what’s going on. It’s from whatever is
going on to just, you know, issues, travel, what we’re
eating, all that type of stuff, so you guys are gonna
get basically two a week. One of the actual series and
one of the behind-the-scenes. I cannot wait to get this series launched, and if it goes well, we’re
gonna do one in Indonesia, South Africa, who knows where
else, maybe South America, some in the United States, who knows. We’d love to do this every single week, 52 weeks of the year,
if, at all, possible. But we gotta see how things
go, so we’re gonna kind of coat our teeth in Australia, doing some really amazing things. But I did need to know from
you guys, really quick, if I were to launch this,
where should it actually live? Should it live on this vlog channel? Or, maybe, should I be on my
old channel, Snakebites TV? I’m not 100% sure. You’re still gonna get
the seven day a week vlog, so that’s not gonna change at all, my question is that, should
you get seven day a week vlog and two extra videos on this channel? Or, should we actually put it over on the Snakebites TV channel? I’m not sure, let know on
the comments what you think will be the best thing. And I think it’ll probably
launch like Saturday afternoon, so you’ll get the vlog
in the morning, then, Saturday afternoon, you’ll get
this action adventure show, and then, maybe Wednesday,
you’ll get the behind-the-scenes? I’m not sure, let me know on the comments what you guys think. (upbeat music) guys, can we talk a little business? Mind if I ask you what your opinion is of some business thing? I hope that you guys, by now,
realize that part of my job is to vlog and to do social
media, I mean it’s kind of like, you guys punching a clock at
work, I do the same thing. I put tons and tons of hours in everyday, filming and editing, and doing
all the work that it takes to be a YouTuber, you know? So, don’t get me wrong, we get paid when you guys watch the
ads, and so on like that, so I’m not saying that it’s not worth it, because of course it is. But, that being said, recently I’ve had quite a few brands
that have reached out to me, that would like me to make brand deals. I’ve done them before with
Audible and Dollar Shave Club and stuff like that,
but I want to ask you, is it okay if I do some more of these? I mean, I wouldn’t do
them like every week, or something like that, but if once or twice a
month I did a brand deal, where I was kind of shouting out a brand that I believed in and I
enjoyed their actual product, and I could pass it on
to you guys’ savings, would that be something
you would be okay with? I don’t want to make you guys be like, “Oh, Brian is just a sellout!
All he cares about is money.” but the truth is, is
that this is my job and, just like you guys do your job, this is what I do as well,
amongst other things, of course. But I really want to make sure
it doesn’t upset you guys, so, do me a favor, down in the comments, tell me if you mind. I mean, when is too much, too much? I mean, is twice a month too
much if I end up giving you a minute long kind of brand deal? And, again, if you support
the brand that I support you get a little bit of
a deal, and it helps me. So, let me know in the comments,
is that okay for you guys? Or do you think that’s a total no-go and you would prefer that not to happen. So, let me know, I would
love to hear it from you. And with that said,
guys, I’m gonna go ahead and end the vlog here. Wish you guys and amazing day. Tell you guys, I love you. Be kind to someone and I promise I will see you guys tomorrow. (upbeat music)


  1. I hate channels that have brand deals in all of their videos and normally I skip right over them. On the other hand, I also know it is part of the game and you bet your ass if I was a youtuber, I would be doing the same thing. I love that you asked "Is it okay" lol. I am not nearly invested in other channels as much as I am in yours and you have a unique way of including the brand into your videos. It is much different than other youtubers who spend 45-90 seconds of blabbing their mouth, but when you do it, you include your family and make it fun. If you do it, please continue to make them fun with including your family and employees and I think you will do alright!

  2. How do i sign up for the beta for Reptile Tycoon..??? Love the content and love all your blog!! You and your team are an amazing group of people!! Could watch your videos for hrs…

  3. Since you do SO many videos a week, I honestly feel like 4 or 5 a month wouldn’t even be bad for brand deals. (1-2 a week). If they are spaced right, it would feel similar to the people who produce 3 videos a week with 2-3 sponsors per month.

  4. Do the brand deals that you already use, Advertising stuff that's a "Good idea" But something you don't already use would be a sellout. Business is business and you could brand out each video in a 20 second out of your 15 min videos and you should be good that way as well. Don't do it where it takes up the beginning or the end of the videos,

  5. Do what’s best for you and your family! Doing brand deals is fine with me! My other YouTube channels do it ! I love love love watching your videos! You have the passion for your animals that I use to see in Steve Irwin( May he Rest In Peace ) 😢. I have learned so much from watching you keep up the good work! ♥️

  6. I think you should do the brand deals. Like you said, it’s your job, I make sure to watch the full ad on every video that I watch, anyone that truly does enjoy watching will support you no matter what.

  7. Also I think adding the new videos to this channel is a great idea, however I think everyone will watch them no matter what channel you put them on ♥️

  8. Yes do the brand deals! Anything to help you and your family! You are the only one that has actually asked us! I have a lot of respect for you for that! No one else would! Your amazing! Do all the deals that come your way!

  9. Don’t mind the brand endorsements! You gotta make your money so we keep getting rad videos! Shout out from south bend Indiana!

  10. Go for the brandings, it's totally fine, I would if I could get some extra income. Saturday and Wednesday special sounds great, the channel is what would benefit you the most. Either way I will be watching and supporting!

  11. I don't think brand deals would be a problem, especially if they help bring better and more content. The adventure series I think should have it's own channel. Maybe you could make it so that viewers could also post videos of their reptile pets

  12. Honestly Brian you do what you need to do….after all you have a family and animals you need to support so do the brand deals….im in Australia so a lot of the deals i can't use but it doesn't bug me seeing them if it helps you help the animals then im behind you 100% 🙂

  13. Putting it on Snake bytes TV might make more sense for the show but if you have everything on one channel the views may help, do what's best for you. And I think brand deals are fine sometimes especially if you actually like the product, I mean we all have to get paid.

  14. i wanna come vist from san deigo and i need to kno how much its goin to cost me to see the reptarian and maybe the BHB headquarters I love reptiles and i would love to learn everything i can from you ive been watching your channel for over a year and now im planning a trip and it would be an honor to learn anything i can from you feel free to DM me the price details

  15. I think you should put your show on here cause I know a lot of veterans overseas love your videos including myself and we don’t have the opportunity to watch television everyday so if you put it on here we’d be able to watch it as well! I love your videos brian keep it up!

  16. Fantastic idea on the Q&A, Brian. I'm going to record a question for you guys now!

    Your friend from across the pond, – Fran 🐡💙🌟🌈

  17. You do you brian. I dont even know how you have enough hours in the days to do all that you do your incredible. I say do the brand deals 👌

  18. Subscribed to you about a week ago. Have gone thru your vlogs and have watched most of them to get caught up. I truly enjoy watching the vlogs. I would like to see the new series on this channel, easier to keep up with both in my opinion. Also the brand sponsors would be fine with me.

  19. Awesome vlog today. Brian, do the brand deals, the ones I have seen you and the gang do are pretty good, if other people don’t want to watch them they can skip forward. Have a great day 🦎🦎🦎🐍🐍💕🇦🇺

  20. Brian do the brand deals. if people dont wanna see them they can skip. sure alot of people wanna see it

  21. #getthosebranddeals You always do something creative with your brand deal shout outs and if they mean your channel can grow, I'm all for it!

  22. The game sounds fun! For your new show. Why not make it's own channel? Or make it easier and do it on this one.

  23. Do the deals !!! Savings always help people and product ideas are cool too ! Just keep the vlogs coming !

  24. Do the deals!!! You’re doing an amazing job with both channels so keep the content coming with the brand deals!!!!!

  25. Definitely do some brand deals, you should do the spin brush one for your face and body! It’s like $100 but with your code it’s only $30!!

    I absolutely 💕 love 💕 your videos!!

  26. I say share the link and mention it in the daily vlog but have it's home page be the old SnakeBites channel. Might as well use it. I think promoting is a natural progression, once you show promise they take notice. I say be true to you, don't be hokie and it's fine even if it's a VERY short bit everyday.

  27. Do the brand deals. I would be cool with 4 a month (1 a week) as long as we get those great skits you do with your crew. It would be a great way to show the crew more and incorporate them as we have learned to love them too. Plus the skit usually makes me laugh and if you can sell product, make money, and help someone's else's business plus helping us get savings on them then I say hell yeah, because this is good for everyone. I love those old snakebytes skits and I love the ones here. Plus it's a creativity outlet and will give you more to do in vlogs and not get "stale" with content. I love and watch regardless but that is more for the people who don't want "the same video again and again". I hope this message finds you well and you hear me out. I BELIEVE this is a great idea. Even if you did 2 or 1 a month. But I'm biased because I love your skits. Which is something I'm now rambling about because I want to emphasize it DEEPLY!

  28. Honestly, if it is a brand and product you genuinely enjoy and use, I wouldn't have a issue with watching that brand deal and promotion. They deserve it then!

    My issue is when YouTubers do it every video to companies that don't even have nice things to offer 🤷🏻‍♀️

  29. Launch it on your old channel. Due the brand deals, you have bills to pay also. Just believe in the deal you are doing.

  30. Dude, you do a video every day of the week. You are over working these animals and it breaks my heart. The only reason why that snake was trying to strike was because you were shoving your camera in her face, intentionally trying to provoke her and make her strike for a thumbnail/clickbait. She was also trying to strike because you were being extremely loud and you were yelling, have you ever heard of a thing called scaring animals? You don't have stimulating enclosures. You just throw newspaper down and throw the animals in there. Snakes need hides and you don't give them any. They are probably so terrified because they are out in the open with no where to hide and they have eggs with them. You are an impulse buyer and it disgusts me. I can't believe no one has stopped you. You obviously only do this for the money you make and you don't give any care to your animals.

  31. DUDE GET THAT MONEY BOI GET THOSE BRAND DEALS it's means more money and money means more reptiles

  32. Looking at his breeding shelves is depressing. You can do better than that, come on. Plain, bare… even a snake deserves enrichment. I can't believe that all the fans watching this thinks this is OK. Really, it looks like the equivalent to a puppy mill.

  33. Hey brain my snake not gettn big but his always shedding n his been real snappy I haven’t been able to touch him n take him out in a year can you please help me

  34. Maybe the momma doesn't want the babies to get hurt or injured like every other animal in you shop place

  35. Get them brand deals Brian. Make that dough. And would love to see the adventure series on the same channel just for ease of access for everyone.

  36. Do the brand deals!! Gotta make sure all those babies are well taken care of ❤️ and I CANNOT WAIT for this game!! I was never into snakes at all until I started watching your videos. Love what you do!! Also, MI Native here too!!

  37. I see nothing wrong with having sponsors. As long as the sponsorship ad is short, especially if it is a sponsor that isn't all that related to the vlog. If it is a sponsorship for a company who's products you use on a regular basis at the Reptarium, or BRB, then I think it would be ok to spend more time on it, and show how you use the product etc.

    Dāv Kaufman's Reptile Adventures does a sponsor ad on every one of his videos, and that has no impact on me watching his channel. And sports teams, and athletes, especially stuff like Nascar have so many sponsors some times that their uniforms, cars, the walls of their facilities etc are covered with sponsor patches and ads.

    You having sponsors would bring in money that could be used to give your breeding animals more natural enclosures, and to expand the Reptarium etc.

  38. I want to see the brands you approve of, I don’t think it’s unreasonable for you to do brand deals you have to make a living and being that you are blogging and vlogging is not unreasonable to slot some stuff in that you believe in …. but weird stuff that’s not got anything to do with reptiles or reptile husbandry maybe not so much lol! If it comes up and it’s boring people tune out so just keep that in mind … I think it’s awesome you’re being offered brand deals and I think you should go with it! 😁👍

  39. Please make some money! Lots of these decisions need to be what's best for your family, employees, and animals! You never push anything on us so when you feel it's right I think we all should trust you! You have been amazing to watch and even when things get sideways you always quick to be totally honest and upfront! That will always guarantee your real fans and people that respect you will be ok with the decisions you make, and if we are not I already know you will realize it and do the right thing! That is why I stay coming back to watch you, you always seem to try and do things the right way! Much respect thank you my kids absolutely love lizards and Snakes now because of you and your channels!
