NOTICE: Feeder Price Increase

We’re very sorry to say it, but we have finally had to increase our feeder prices again, and this time, it’s substantial. We have resisted for far too long in the hopes that costs of feed would normalize. Unfortunately, the cost of feed continues to soar.

We have been able to offset this for our customers largely through our pet lines of rodents. The reality, however, as we yet again face a $3/bag increase in feed is that we simply can’t do that any more. While we still strive to be the most cost effective option in the area, we cannot continue to take a loss on feeders.

Please understand that this is not a decision we take lightly. We understand that our customers also have been deeply effected by increased costs. We have tried to help where we can.

Moving forward, customers who reach out for feeder pricing will see rates that are much more inline with the going industry rates, though still lower than some online national retailers.

We appreciate your understanding, and your business. Please reach out if you have questions. Thank you.

Strange Wulfs

Join us in our journey beyond the reptiles, as we share our strange and whimsical life of shadows, animals, adventure, & style with a little Southern gothic flare.


We can’t tell you all how much we appreciate the love and support we’ve received over the last couple years. From the beginning, we have aspired to make Mortal Coil far more than another pet breeder. Our goal has always been to create something that is inclusive, educational, proactive, and that brings people together under an often new-found love of these animals.

To that end, we have many new adventures planned ahead. We have come as far as we have not by our own effort alone, but through the support of people often outside the reptile community who have appreciated the work we do and who’ve believed in us. As we come ever closer to doing this thing that we do full time, we’d like to give both an opportunity to those who want to help us along the way, whether they’re reptile keepers or not.

With that, we announce that we’ve launched our very own Patreon. Whether you’re a supporter from outside the reptile community who wants to make a positive impact, or a die-hard reptile enthusiast looking for an inside track on exclusive deals, $5 a month gets you (first and foremost) our undying gratitude, but also:

-Patreon member-only deals.

-Early access: We will be making animals available to our Patreon supporters before anyone else. You’ll have a chance to get them before they ever hit the website or MorphMarket.

-Access to our Discord channel

-Name a Snake: Want us to name a snake after you, a loved one, an enemy, favorite TV character? Patreon members will get the chance to name a snake as clutches hatch each season.

-Name a Rat: Want us to name a rat after someone and feed it to a snake? We’ve got you, and we’ll film it. (NOTE: We do not do live feeding and will not create live feeding videos).

-Behind the scenes looks at our upcoming adventures that we won’t share anywhere else, not even on our Facebook community

-Exclusive livestreams. Want to watch them hatch LIVE? Want exclusive live Q&As? This will be the place for them!

-Shout outs. Much of what we have planned is going to be filmed and we are going to make every effort to express our gratitude in the form of a shoutout at every opportunity.Please note that the more production involved perks will take time, but THEY ARE COMING!
