Tyler: All right here we are, baby. What is up guys? Here with Alex. How the hell are you? I’m Tyler Nolan. Welcome to the freaking show.

All right, so we are here. Yo, check out my truck, actually. I don’t even need to show you guys this. Whew. Got the new wrap done on the truck. Check this out. We’ve got the shop logo on the back. Ooh. Like the new shirts, these shirts also by the way, are for sale at the bottom of this page. Actually the bottom of this video, even. Go right below this video, check out all the new marks. We’ve got new shop shirts. Alex show them the back of the shirt real fast. Just hold that. Back of the shirt. Cool, Grim Reaper. Go down below this video, check out the shirts. We got kilos shirts on there too.

Anyways, that’s not why we’re here. We’re here because look, we’re at the underground reptiles farm. Check this place out. Alex has never been here before. Taking him here for a little treat, show him the place. Ryan’s building a whole new office building here, have another dry storage area in the back, got all the equipment in here. This is the main part of the farm, where they do all the wholesale stuff. Upstairs has all the offices. Downstairs is where all the animals are kept, including the venomous room, which is where we’re going today.

Setting up a new cage. We’re pimping out the eyelash viper’s cage and we’re doing a new squam cage. I only have one squam right now, African Bush Viper. Today we’re stopping over here to see what Ryan’s got. Maybe pick out some more colors. Let’s go inside, this awesome– This place is one of my favorites. In case you guys didn’t know, I grew up working here, not in this specific facility, but working for Ryan at Underground Reptiles since I was a little tiny kid. This is what started everything. Let’s go check these things out.

We are in the venomous room at Underground. Now they’re in the middle of building, like I showed you before, just outside. They’re building a bunch of new buildings. They’re actually a bunch of new, bigger rooms that they’re going to be moving this stuff into. They’re redoing this whole room, getting rid of these racks, getting a bunch of new visions in here. They’re still in the process of doing a lot of things, but this is how it is for now. Check these guys out.

This is one of my black spinners from a few years ago. They just produced her in one of these incubators. You can see behind me right here. See the all the whole other side of this room is incubators. One of these incubators has 30 black and white spinner eggs in there, which is pretty cool. They also have a Gaboon Viper and a Puff adder in here. They’re trying to pair those up. They’ve been pairing those snakes up for a long time, still haven’t gotten anything from that Gaboon Viper there.

That’s the reason why we’re here. We are here– Oh man. There’s more Bush Vipers over here too. Look at this. Let’s see what kind of squams that they have here today. I’m looking for some cool colors. I definitely want like a yellow or orange red, something like that. Some nice vibrant colors to match these plants that we just got. Let’s see what we got going on here. That one’s a green. I already have a green at home, so we’re not really trying to go there. There’s another green. They’re also a little on the smaller side, which is okay.

I definitely want a little larger animals, but they will grow over pretty fast. Let’s see how these guys are. Oh, there’s a nice little orange one right there. Really cool. Hey, little guy. Awesome. Let’s get one of these good-looking ones. Purple started. All right. Over here, I’m pretty sure I saw decent-looking yellow one. This guy is awesome. See this little yellow one? Is pretty cool color. Check this guy out. Look at this little dude. What a cool little Viper. See these keel scales on them? It’s only got really cool colors on him. Purples, yellows. Even some teal blue on this guy.

This is definitely a sweet-looking snake right here. I’m going to have to take this guy home for sure. Yes, just like that. Got him right in there.

That was not easy to get him into this little cup, but look how great that viper looks. He is a great colors right there. Nice little yellow guy. Very cool. Let’s keep on checking them out. Got an active little guy here. It is active little dude, he is. Wow, and look at this little guy, orange. Really cool. This guy is bad-ass for sure. You are also coming home with me. Crazy little orange guy. Look at that. Sweet little dragon. Look at that cute little face, man.

These guys are just badass. Such cool little snakes. I love their faces. You cannot beat that. That is straight up. They just look venomous. This is one of those snakes that you look at and you’re like, “Yes, not messing with that thing for sure.” You little dragon, now we’ve got to get you into a cup, also taking you home. This is very, very dangerous. You have to go like this. You slowly make him put his tail in like this. That is not easy, man.

Especially when they’re active like that, putting a crazy little viper in a tiny, tiny little container like this, is definitely not easy at all.

But man, so far so good. These guys are looking great. Let’s keep searching. Now watch out, Alex, don’t get too close because those things will come a launching out right at you. I’m in a predicament here. I don’t know which one to get. I really like the orange coloration on that one. He’s pretty sweet. Then this one too has got that red and the yellow in it, man. I don’t know what to do. Oh, there’s a Chandler right here. Let me get this, or I might. All right. Now that we’ve got that little situation handled, let’s go grab another couple of these guys, and we are out of here. Chandler is on his way over to my house and we’re going to put these things together.

Now that I caught that little curl snake, it’s awesome. We are good to go. Let’s put this guy away. I’m definitely going to take this guy home. This little orange dude. Look at him, look how cool this little snake is. Right, little guy? Look at this. Hey, man. That’s a great-looking snake. Now these guys, I’m sure will look a lot better once I get them in the right lighting and they get a shed. Get some meals in them. Look at that little head. A little face, bro. Oh God. They’re just the cutest. One of my favorite snakes, man. They always have been. I even have a tattoo of him right here.

A little barrel Bush Viper right there. Little guy. God, these guys are so cool. Look at that little head. You are awesome. This makes what? Number three? Number three. Let’s see here, see around like that. There we go, come out. Come out. Come here. This is your buddy Tyler. Thank you. Like this. Like that. That deeper Deli cup is the move. That was way easier than those tiny ones. Get rid of this water. Bada Bing, bada boom.

All right. The last one I think I’m going to get is this little red guy. He’s not super red, but he’s– He’s definitely got cool coloration to him.

I’m going to grab this guy also. All right, crazy little thing. I’m just going to actually put him in the same container as this guy. Go, go in with your friend. No. No. Go in there. Thank you very much. Bada Bing, bada boom. There we are, a bunch of new little squams for the collection. This guy is awesome there. See these little orange ones, yellow, red be like this is definitely some good colors. I’ll still keep my eye out. I still want another– There’s deep red ones. There’s all black ones. There’s a bunch of different variations, very old Bush vipers, so many different colors.

They’re very cool. Got to collect them all. All right, so let’s pack up. Let’s get the hell on out of here. Get back over to the house. Chandler’s going to meet us. We’re going to get these cages set up and we’re going to talk a little bit more about these animals, so stay tuned. All right. Back in the snake room, first thing that we’re going to do is I’m going to take all these stuff down here. We got to get to the electricity on the back of these cages.

I’m going to take these UV lights off the back here, and we’re going to put some plant lights in the actual enclosures. I’m probably going to run it up top right here. We will have the heat lights over here and then the plant grow lights will be over here. The heat lights that I’m using in these cages are also plant lights so not only do they give out heat, but they also have UVB for the plants. Let’s skip all the boring stuff. Let’s get these cages set up and then we’ll put the animals in there and talk more about them.

Boom got the lights in there. I also set up this irrigation system with the sprayer at the bottom, ran these water wires up here and down in the middle so that way, I have a sprayer in both of these cages that’ll be on a timer to keep the cage sprayed every day. I just made up some echo work. I’m going to put about a brick in each cage and then we’re going to stick the plants in there and get all this. I just want pretty much do a nice little upgrade for them. They’re not exactly bioactive setups, I didn’t do the charcoal layers, the water with the separations yada, yada.

I got Chandler bringing it me over all the bugs so at least for doing that, it’s pretty basic. I just got some sphagnum moss, some soil down there, some coco bark. Pretty easy. I have a bunch of potted plants in there, plant lights. Pretty basic setup. I just wanted to do something more visually appealing for them more like at home, pretty much. I set up these sprayers up top like I said before so that’ll be awesome. Every eight hours it’s going to mist them down for a minute. Pretty simple.

First thing first, let’s put my main guy back in here. See him? Come on. Let’s get off this fake stuff. No more fake plants. I wanted to do bioactive setups with these tanks but I was talking to Chandler about it and I honestly really need to do it in a terrarium, like an exoteric like that with the glass bottom so that way you can have the proper layers that you need to have all the elements of the bio activeness. You got to create a bio-dome, essentially. Bio-Dome. That movie is awesome. Bio-Dome? Too young? Go watch it. Bio-Dome. Hilarious.

Anyways, we’re going to put this guy back in the cage and I’ve had him for years. This is the squam that I actually had paired up– Not paired up but he was in the cage with the [inaudible 00:12:28] viper for years and years and years and they lived perfectly in harmony together until [unintelligible 00:12:34] and then it’s all history. Right, Alex? Anyways, I forgave him. I still like to give him crap about it. Let’s put him in there. Man, look how beautiful the snake looks in there now. He’s like, “Hell yes, dude. Got some branches.”

Look, now the water system I got right here. I’ll put the link to the bottom. It’s just a– What is this? A monsoon Exo Terra sprayer. Check that out. Pretty cool. See it spraying in both cages? Every hour or every– I’m sorry. Every eight hours, these are going to turn on and they spray for an entire minute. Twice a day, they’ll get misted down. Perfect. Perfect, perfect. Perfect. Let’s get the rest of these guys. These are the new ones that I just got. Check these little guys out.

These little Squams are so cool. They’re feisty too. They’re really hard to put in these tiny little containers. Look at this guy right here. Check that out. Look at that bright orange on him. Holy crap, so dope. Look at that. Orange little Squam. Dude, he is sick, so freaking cool. Now, he is a lot smaller than my big guy. I’m pretty sure that’s a male. He’s a lot smaller than him. Hopefully, they get along. Look how badass the snake is. Freaking cool. They are like little dragons.

Now there’s 17 different species of [unintelligible 00:14:18]. These are the Squams. [Latin language] is the Latin for them. Don’t crucify me if I didn’t say that entirely correctly. I don’t say my Latin the best. Sometimes I say naga, sometimes I say naja sometimes I say whatever. It is what it is. I got to split tongues [unintelligible 00:14:40] sometimes. Next, we got here is this other little guy. He’s on the yellow side. Check him out. He’s pretty sick. He’s got a bunch of different colors on him. Honestly, he’s got almost like a purple shade, oranges, yellows.

They come in all different colors and flavors. Their skins are so freaking cool. They are so cute. I just want to touch them but no, this has a bad bite. The venom on these guys is not entirely too deadly. There is no real anti-venom specifically directed towards a [unintelligible 00:15:16] so you have to use some generic anti-venom, but it’s not that bad. It’s not too life-threatening. There’s not a whole lot of fatal cases. There is a couple. You’ll most likely lose a piece of your finger or a good chunk.

I’ve had a bunch of friends get bitten by these guys. I’ve seen animals getting bitten by these guys. It always has just a little bit of necrosis to it and then they’re pretty good. It’s just a definitely a painful little bite. Let’s get this guy in the cage. Let’s go in your place. It’s going to be so hard to keep track of these guys in here. It’s going to be five now. Last but not least, are these two orange ones. Now Kayla said that she wanted orange ones today, so I made sure I definitely got a couple of options.

Oh my God, come here. Relax. These guys are sweet. Look at this. This is a red little one. They have almost yellow bellies. This one’s really orange. Sick shit for sure. Put you in your cage little guy. Thank you very much. Put this guy in there too. Hell, yes these guys are doing awesome. Look how red this snake is. They look great in that light too. Especially, against these plants. Watch out, watch out. Be careful there, Alex, you’re getting attacked. That was close. Alex, see the big one in the back? He’s like-

Alex: “What is this thing do to me?

Tyler: “”Yo, what are you guys doing? Who are you? You little creatures.” Hopefully, they get along. In the past when I first got this big squam, he was in there with a bunch of other little guys and then I sold him and traded him throughout the years, but he should get along nice and cohesive with all these guys. It’s a great little setup, definitely a huge upgrade from what they were in there. They just had eco earth and fake plants in there. Now, hopefully these plants even though they’re potted, it’s not really so much of a bioactive aquarium, hopefully, they will still live and thrive and grow and everybody will do very well in here and feel at home.

The last thing to do. Obviously, I had to redo this eyelash viper’s cage also. I can’t just do their cage and leave him out. I love that viper. Still really upset that the green one died. Man, one day I’ll find some more. It’s just it sucks. Those are captive-bred eyelash vipers that I raised up from a tiny, tiny little baby. They were so tiny. Now, this guy has been soaking. I’ve had to soak him several times. He was having some shedding issue. Hopefully, he’s getting a little bit better.

Let’s see what we got here. He’s looking a little bit better. Now, this is my yellow eyelash. I love this snake to death. What a cool freaking snake. Bright yellow tree viper. Just the coolest freaking snake ever man. Like what? That snake is awesome. Just the coolest little viper ever, man. God, they’re such cool snakes, man. You just want to hold them. You just have to. It’s so hard not to. Look how badass that freaking snake is. Such a cool snake, man. Dope, dope, dope. You just got to watch out. Watch your fingers. You don’t want nobody snapping at us. It’s very cool.

He just needed a couple of fuzzies the other night too, so I don’t want to handle him very much. I just want to get him back in his new cage. get you back in there, man. Some water. Look at that, man. Look at the color of this snake, dude. What a beautiful animal, right? It’s on its space, got to be [unintelligible 00:20:04]. So dope. Nice. let’s get this guy in his cage a little bit more, let him crawl around and do his thing. There you go bro.

Such a mellow little viper too. I’ve pictures of him when he was a baby holding him on the tip of my finger. It’s very cool. Cages look great for them. Water system works awesome, the lighting is great. Super stoked.

First feeding baby. They’re pounding them things now. Hell yeah, man. Look at those things, they’re so sweet. Gorgeous little babies, you guys are so tight. Savage, metal, super metal. Everybody is eating man. Hell yeah, dude. That is great. Love getting new snakes and they eat right away, that is always a good sign. Because sometimes these guys are a pain in the ass to feed. Now we know they’re good. All right. So that’s it cool little Squam video for you guys.

I hope you like the new setups, pretty sweet. Badass, that looks awesome. You see that bright yellow snake in there? So sick, definitely need more eyelashes. So boom, I’ve never– A green one. He’s still on my freezer, I’ve got to get him re-articulated but eventually, we’ll get another one. Till next time guys, make sure you like, comment, subscribe to this page. Thanks for watching. Also, make sure you grab some merch down below underneath this video.

New shop shirts are on there, I’ve got kilo shirts on there too. Check them out, order one. They’re pretty decent, that Tee spring company that I’m using down there, pretty cool. Till next time, later guys.
