Rant: I want one of DarkMoon's fry sooo bad but I don't have room. If I did get one, I'd want to get him his own big planted tank and treat him like a prince because they're so gorgeous.

RANT!- Why does it have to be so dry in this house!? I'm adding 5 cups of water to my 29gal biocube every day because it's spitting air! And 3 cups to the 14gal biocube! We don't even have the heater on in the house yet!

Ouch! I'm sure that wasn't fun.I almost dropped a pound of frozen hamburger on my foot. Thank goodness it missed. I already have foot issues as it is.

Hyde pooed on my shorts. :( But he looked up and gave me such a guilty look - "I'm sorry mum, I'm just so desperate!" - while he was doing it that I forgave him.

The first signs have started appearing in my state advertising for the next year's 'rattlesnake roundups'. With an estimated 100,000 eastern rattlesnakes left in the entire US, I still can't believe the amount of cruelty that goes on at these is...Well, no, it's not legal. Nothing legal about sewing animals mouths shut so they starve, pouring gasoline into animal dens hoping snakes jump out, or skinning them alive for entertainment. No one does anything about it though, because they aren't snuggly. Not like these guys don't already get killed enough just for being snakes(Or for food or for their skins or habitat destruction)

I'm not going to stand by and just complain anymore though. Ugh. I've got to do something, or else we are about to face a huge ecological disaster. I'm just afraid it will be too late.

Honestly, sorry about this post. I tried as hard as I could to not be graphic but.. Well, there is no other way to describe what happens at these things other than the facts, and they are pretty brutal. Ugh. I could say so much more, but it's all so terrible.

Purple: That's all I have to say is How utterly barbaric. I may not like snakes but I also feel that they have rights too. Like a right to not be tortured. Poor snakes. That's just awful.

It's definitely nasty. All done under the lies of being educational and getting venom to make antivenin--but the place is filthy(you can imagine why, it's a slaughter house) so all the venom is unusable by scientists and is just thrown out! Plus, it's 'tradition' and 'testosterone' and again, they're snakes. It's a tough battle to get these to at least be educational--or at LEAST place a hunting limit on them like a game animal!
