Our Story

Hey there, reptile lovers! My name is Scarlett Nightshade, and I am a passionate herpetoculturist, academic author, artist and educator. My husband Abel and I keep and breed various species of snakes under our business name Creatures of Nightshade, where we work with some of the most legendary snakes from around the world!

My Snake Crate was created to provide reptile lovers with a one-of-a-kind, immersive learning experience centered around snakes, an animal that is far too often misunderstood.


Through educational activities and awesome goodies, every box is packed with not only knowledge, but fun! Plus, every item inside is written, designed and made by hand right here in our home.

Each snake of the month featured in My Snake Crate is proudly selected by our little family of reptile lovers, with each item offering a special experience to bond through the wonderful world of snakes. We hope you enjoy learning about your slithery companions, and most importantly, have fun!


Scarlett, Abel, and Lucy Nightshade
