Reptile lovers? Amphibian fanciers? Let's chat!

We've had just about every other thread out there about dogs, cats, birds, and of course fish... How about some of the scaly and slimy friends!

Feel free to post pictures of your herps, ask questions on care, talk about important events going on in our reptile world, or just chat about the ones you adore! Whether you have a reptile or just maybe dream of owning one, this is the place! :D



Nagini says..."WELCOME!" :D


You know, I actually am likely getting a new reptile friend soon! :) I'm not sure which...We have 'store credit' with a reptile store locally...About 500 dollars worth. So I might pick up a new snake! We'll see!

nice lepoards... is that last one a Blizzard? I've been wanting one of those for a long time. It seems the people who discovered it no longer breed them.

Here's Steve.... My Ball python. He's about 12 years old...

the Darker numbers indicate feet, so you get an idea of his size



And then this little guy is wild, but he tends to keep right around my yard

big for a garter snake

Ohhhh he has some really pretty blushing on his back! And he has a nice reduced pattern, what a cutie! I love seeing older snakes, it's great when someone really cares for them and keeps them longer than 2-3 years!

I love garters! We are supposed to have them in our area, but people kill them all the time fearing they are venomous :( sigh!

EvilVOG - Yes, she's a blizzard! She was my first leo, a rescue from some pyscho neighbors. The leopards in order are tremper albino, normal, snowglow, snowglow and blizzard. :)

If you look on geckoforums.net you can find some good leo breeders, I'm pretty sure you would find a blizzard there. Urbangeckos.com is also a great place to look. Very good quality leos there!

I love your python! He's gorgeous! I want one so bad, but my mom is against the whole snake thing. She doesn't care about other reptiles, but is very against the snakes.

Diablo - Leopard geckos can be fed on mealworms with vitamin supplementation. But its always a good idea to have a variety in their diet. I feed mealworms, superworms, waxworms, phoenix worms, horn worms, etc. I believe african fat tails can also be fed on mealworms, but they prefer crickets, and getting them to switch can be a real pain. And thank you! Skinky can be a little stinker! He's quite a devil when he wants to be! He used to be afraid of the camera, and that was the first picture I took of him and I didn't know. He lunged at me after that picture was taken! LOL Poor guy, he's not so afraid of cameras anymore!

Purplemuffin - You should get a crestie! They are so much fun!

LOL, as I type this, my beardie is sitting on my keyboard watching the screen xD

I love how their tongues have such vibrant colors :D Yout skink doesn't like computers? Neither does my Parrotlet. He likes waging war on my itouch :D do you suppose a Leopard would be happy in a 29 gallon? I have a strong aeguement with the worms, they can't exactly escape.....wait, they don't hatch, do they?
