Welcome to The Lost Beagle, Hudson Valley Herpetological LLC’s blog. A word of explanation is in order here. If you’ve explored the rest of our website, you already know that Hudson Valley Herpetological LLC (“HVH”) is a privately owned reptile collection and business venture with roots in New York State’s Hudson River valley. Basically, we’re snake breeders. The question of the moment, however, is – what is the purpose of this blog? And perhaps more importantly – why in the world have we named our blog “The Lost Beagle?” Let’s see if we can shed some light here.
