Where Pythons Are Not Just Animals – They Are A Passion

The Backstory

I love reptiles of all kinds. Ever since I was a child, I’ve been infatuated with all cold-blooded creatures, especially snakes. I used to catch frogs, lizards and garter snakes growing up and keep them in shoe boxes and plastic containers in my closet. I’ve owned hundreds of snakes in my life, spanning the gamut from Corn Snakes to Monocle Cobras. When I got my first Reticulated Python, things started getting more serious.

Retics simply captivate me. Their curiosity, personality and overall intelligence continually blow me away. Not to mention the myriad of colors and patterns that can be created from different genetic combinations. From the time I purchased my first Retic, I’ve been hooked – and there is only one cure for the addiction. More Retics!!

That is why I dubbed my program “WildFire Retics.” It’s a passion that was ignited and has spread like WILDFIRE.

The core mission of WildFire Retics is to provide every reptile enthusiast the opportunity to own one jaw-dropping, stop-you-in-your-tracks, exhibition worthy Python in their life. I’ve meticulously selected my stock from the absolute best of the best in the United States. From genetics to colors and patterns, every snake I own is as close to flawless as it comes.

I’ve spared no expense in acquiring my snakes nor the caging & care they are given. In turn, this has allowed me the opportunity to provide absolutely mind blowing snakes to my customers. There will always be other breeders and other animals available – however the difference will be obvious. A WildFire Retic will always burn its image into your memory!


Originally, WildFire Retics was just a one-man show. Weston Wenner, the owner and founder, began collecting Reticulated Pythons in 2013. The collection expanded dramatically in the beginning of 2017 and has continued to grow since then. With the expansion of the animals, more people had to be brought in to help care for the animals.
In 2018, Casey Sullivan began working with Weston at WildFire Retics. Casey had a new-found love for reptiles and her interests were mainly with large constrictors. Casey began with basic cleaning duties and assisting at expo’s and trade shows. Over the last two years, Casey has become one of the primary caretakers at WildFire Retics. She works with almost all of the snakes and has a couple of favorite adult Retics that she spends her time with. Casey has become an integral part of the team at WildFire Retics and is affectionately known as “Red”.
In 2019, Joe Ramos began working with WildFire Retics. Joe has worked with Weston in numerous businesses over many years. He was not a fan of the snakes when Weston began the operation, but after some time around them though his genuine curiosity took over and he jumped in with both feet. Joe works mainly with the hatchlings and sub-adult Retics, as his comfort level is only with those snakes that aren’t large enough to cause him harm. Though he appreciates the larger animals, he leaves those duties to Weston. Joe also works all of the expo’s and trade shows that WildFire Retics attends. He can usually be found talking with attendee’s about our resident Black Throat Monitor!
