About Sunfish Exotics
Sunfish Exotics is a passion project owned and operated by Morgan Carpenter.
I've always had an obsession with animals. I actually began in the aquarium hobby, but after getting my first leopard gecko I fell completely in love with reptiles. I learned a lot in those first few years and made some mistakes, as we all do when first starting out. My small collection of pets grew, and in 2013 I made the leap and bred a single pair of leopard geckos for the first time. It was certainly not a perfect first attempt, but I was hooked. Each subsequent season I've put more and more time into this hobby and my plans for the future have grown.
I'm also an artist! Most of my portfolio is animal or plant related. I love painting pet portraits, but I also offer other services such as logo design. I mainly work with watercolors, acrylics, and digital media.
I currently work with and produce (or will be producing) a few different species:
My goal is to provide you with the best possible buying experience, no matter if the animal is your first reptile or you're a seasoned breeder.
Because I am focused to giving each of my animals individual attention and getting them off to the best start possible, I am only producing a limited number of hatchlings at this time. Each year at Sunfish Exotics I will be increasing the number of hatchlings that are produced, though I will always stay small-scale so I can continue to provide each animal with the very best in care and husbandry. I pride myself in being transparent with the methods I use and am eager to see other hobbyists and breeders go beyond the "bare minimum". I love designing and building enclosures and am always happy to give advice on how best to meet the needs of your pets.
