The vague statement was there on the original website, just that instead of the "new owners" it said Chris Williams and Martin Kennedy. This sucks... Snake Ranch used to be one of the best snake breeders in the country. And now with RDU gone... Chris Williams is still the President of the AHS, not sure what these new projects are.Chis Williams had a partner, ex Rugby league footballer Martin Kennedy, who is the alleged smuggler (google his name) and Chris recently left to "pursue other interests".
The plot thickens. The new website has changed since I last viewed it a couple of weeks ago, now all reference to Martin Kennedy has been removed as have photos and references to a lot of the original Snake Ranch animals like Black Prince they claimed to still own 2 weeks ago.
There is now this vague statement:
"The new website owners share a lifelong interest in reptiles and have been involved in the hobby for many years. It’s our aim to build on the good name Snake Ranch currently holds, and take the company to new and exciting heights with the help of the dedicated contacts who continue to work with an exciting array of species, and remain at the forefront of morph development in Australia."
That could indicate they no longer own the reptiles and are acting on behalf off whoever does.
Also interesting is a sole add on the site, for Australia Zoo.
There are people on APS with better contacts than me that may know more?
