About the Breeder - Zoe Lindsey

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

Hi, I'm Zoe Lindsey! I am the proud owner of ZL Colubrids- a reptile breeding business. Let's start off learning about a little bit of my history with animals. I was born in 2002- and adopted when I was 16 months old. Animals have helped me throughout my life (especially reptiles and horses) to cope with a lot of negative emotions. The first time I laid eyes on a snake was in Kindergarten- on a field trip to the Rockwood Nature Center in Chesterfield, VA. I was the only girl in my class who wanted to pet it- just a normal, wild type corn snake. That day forward, reptiles became my obsession. I had to learn everything about corn snakes- husbandry, feeding, breeding, etc. When I was about 12, I started begging my dad to allow me to own a pet snake. However, there was one catch, he was deathly terrified of snakes. Like- he killed even the little black rat snakes in the yard when I tried to relocate them. For my 15th birthday, I got a ball python, Luna. She went many places with me, Petsmart and out in the yard. She taught me responsibility and snake care. Now, I cherish that childhood memory of the corn snake- and other native species. This sets me on my mission to breed corn snakes, of all different morphs and patterns! Another huge inspiration of mine is "Snake Discovery" on YouTube. If you haven't checked them out, do it ASAP! (And yes, as an 18 year old college student, I got their coloring book).

On the topic of college, I am currently a student enrolled at John Tyler Community College. I am majoring in General studies with a heavy focus in science. In about three months time, I will transfer to Blue Ridge Community college, and begin my veterinary science degree! I hope to study small animals (dogs/cats) and have an even larger focus on exotics. Not having enough veterinarians educated in exotics is an epidemic in our country. I noticed this firsthand with an egg-bound bearded dragon- the closest one was in Northern VA: two plus hours from me! I also am an avid equestrian and have been riding since the age of 5.

Anyways... I hope this helped you learned a little bit more about me and my history. Have a great day and feel free to chat with me anytime :)
