Cltch started as a personal project by Kinova to overhaul their website’s incubator records page with a badly needed tech upgrade. This project expanded to create a basic Ball Python inventory system for Kinova. As that objective took shape, the power and simplicity of it surprised the team! We started to see how it could be an amazing tool for breeders and hobbyists everywhere.
In May 2021, Kinova and the development team met for a brainstorming session in Washington DC. Over 6 hours we hammered out a plan of what Cltch could become and how to share it with the entire Ball Python community!
Cltch will become your trusted tool to manage your Ball Python collection, track genetics, and share your work with the world. We are focused on simplicity and deep technology so you can spend your time with animals, not spreadsheets. When you have questions about your collection, lineage, or genetics, or want to plan your future, Cltch is available wherever you are.
Cltch was built to keep the user experience as straightforward as possible while tackling the unique challenges of increasing genetic complexity. With Ball Python combos becoming ever more complicated, tracking genetics accurately by incorporating lineage information and genetic shed testing is becoming critical. To do this well, the program must be complex behind the scenes but simple to the user. We’ve chosen to leave animal care to you. We don’t track sheds, feeding, or cleaning. Cltch holds your collection data behind the scenes so you can spend your time with your snakes, not data entry.
