So everyone asks "Where did the name EMS Reptiles come from?"
Well that's easier to answer then you think. Some catch it right away, most laugh when we point it out.... First we will start with the two most asked questions, "So you are both Paramedics?" -- NO, neither of us are paramedics. "Are you guys an animal rescue group?" -- NO, we raise, house and breed our own animals and do not take sick or injured animals into our collection.
So where did the name come from? Its our combined initials, Eddie Melissa Sunila Reptiles.
Where we've been and where we are now
We have kept a variety of snakes here at EMS Reptiles over the past 10 years ranging in size from Redtail boas to Rubber boas. We've worked with Rosy boas & Rhino Ratsnakes. Along with breeding enough rats and mice to feed everything, our reptile collection mainly consists of Ball Python morphs, Greybanded Kingsnakes, Hognose, and Corn snake morphs along with various Rattlesnake species.
Eddie was born and raised in San Antonio Texas where he purchased his first
reptile in 1985. Along with 2 other friends, Eddie owned and operated a pet store for a few years in the early 90's and is where he learned the art of fish keeping. In 2003, Eddie was hired into the Aquarium Department at The San Antonio Zoo, later transferring to Reptiles. He was promoted to Supervisor of The Aquarium and Reptile departments in 2005. Spring of 2015 brought about alot of changes. Eddie left the San Antonio Zoo, moved to the Greater Houston Area and joined the Houston Zoo team where he continues to work with reptiles today. Eddie's passion lies with reptiles, and as a result, enjoys keeping a selection of animals and is solely responsible for all venomous animals in our collection.
Melissa was born in California and moved to Texas at the age of 13. Unlike Eddie, Melissa did not grow up around reptiles but learned to love & appreciate them as an adult. Melissa graduated from nursing school in 2006 and is currently employed full time as an Emergency Room Nurse. The ball pythons are cared for & bred by Melissa.
