My name is Brian Watkins. I am the owner of Hell Creek Reptiles. I produce the finest investment reptiles at highly competitive prices! My career in the medical profession allows me to offer my customers the best market price anywhere! Animals will be priced very competitively with payment plans available.
We want to foster a healthy marketplace but also make these animals accessible to more people and help grow interest in keeping super dwarf retics and herpetoculture. My passion for keeping reptiles has driven me to breed reticulated pythons! I don't do this for a living; I produce animals for myself and sell what I have left over. I provide all my animals with the best care and take the utmost pride in what I produce!
I've been keeping reptiles since the late 90s and hatched my first clutch of python eggs in 1999. I have a B.S. in Zoology and am a seasoned paleontological field technician and fossil preparator. I'm a graduate student studying zoo | museum curation and collections management at Johns Hopkins University.
In 2012, as a geology student and volunteer, I co-discovered one of the oldest known Tyrannosaurids in the world in New Mexico, named Dynamoterror dynastes.
Visit our LinkTree for info and pictures from the 2012 expedition that discovered Dynamoterror dynastes.

We also sell museum quality fossils collected from the Hell Creek Formation of Montana and South Dakota. We also have suppliers of fossil specimens from around the world.
Now, what is the Hell Creek?
The Hell Creek is a famous (Cretaceous era) dinosaur fossil bearing rock formation located in several different states just east of the Rocky Mountains, Montana and South Dakota are most famous for it. This is where the fossils of T Rex and Triceratops where first discovered by Barnum Brown in the early 1900's.
The Hell Creek formation is comprised of many different types of fluvial and lucastrine sedimentary rocks. Recording the long extinct ecosystems, It was formed through millions of years of erosion of the Laramide mountains. This mountain range was situated on the west coast of the Western Interior Seaway. Another important feature of the Hell Creek is that it records a catastrophic mass extinction event, when a massive meteor crashed into the earth. Creating the K/Pg boundary. The Hell Creek formation was deposited approximately 66.8 MYA to 65 MYA, when the dinosaurs went extinct.
Our name honors the "Hell Creek" formation and the nightmarish beasts that once roamed the land, air and sea during that time period in our Earth's history.
We hope you join us in our interest and enthusiasm for all things reptile and dinosaur!
