2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

PostSubject: My other pets   Mon Sep 12, 2011 8:08 am

So my fiance and I have a lot of pets aside from our two dogs! We also have two cats and a multitude of scaly critters Smile This is just pictures of (almost) everyone!

Cats:

Lucky, a rescue. Gray/brown tabby. He was found under the hood of my dad's mustang after my dad had driven my brother and sister to school one morning. He is about 4-5 months old now I'd guess. He is showing signs of becoming a big fat cuddle muffin when he is older. This picture is of him playing with my fiance's shoe within the first week we had him.


This is Jaylan, our tortoiseshell cat. She was rescued via a local rescue organization and is approximately 2 years old now. She is my fiance's baby. This picture is of her "basking" under a reptile heat lamp, she loves the warmth. Its like having your own mini sun (in more ways than just the warmth as its a UVA/B light mimics sunlight and thats why it makes her fur look greenish.)


Then there are the scalies! We have approximately 20-25 snakes and a lizard as well as three different fish tanks. My fiance is a reptile fanatic and is really into snakes and breeding snakes. I honestly would be ok with less snakes (but I do love them! I have about 10 of my own) but I doubt we will decrease our numbers any time soon. Here are some pictures of our slithery scalies:

Albino motley corn snake hatchling male or female named Soleil or Ignatius. We have two, they're siblings and almost completely identical, and I don't remember which one this picture is of.


Hypo lavender corn snake male named Pantalaimon


Hypo stripe corn snake female named Tanith


Albino corn snake male named Drake (he was my first ever snake)


Ghost honduran milk snake male named Veil


Dusky pygmy rattlesnake male named Baliss


Hog Island boa female named Bella


Normal motley corn female named Aphrodite


Brazilian rainbow boa male named Norbert


Hypo lavender corn snake female named Lyra


So those are just a few. And the only ones that aren't mine are Aphrodite and Baliss. They are also the only full adults, the others are babies or juveniles, not more than a year and a half old at most, Drake being the oldest. Most of the others are of the corn snake, rat snake, or milksnake variety but we also have a copperhead named Godric.

Our one lizard, Zeddicus the bearded dragon


And then all thats left are the fish. We have a betta fish named Caspian V (There have been Caspians 1 - 4) and we also have three fish tanks, one containing a variety of african cichlids (jewels, kenyai, electric blue) and another containing a young blue dempsey and a young featherfin catfish and the last containing two one-eyed neon yellow african cichlids (no I don't know the technical name and they were missing their eyes before we got them). I don't have any pictures of them except on my phone and I can't transfer that to computer.

wow!!! you do have a houseful!!
I have Meka, my baby I rescued her, three homes in four months when I got her. Tucker a Pom huskey cross. Rescued him, someone had bought him for a Rotti to eat. When the Human Society found him his neck was ripped apart and he was almost dead. I have had him 3 years. Then there is Fergus, a Cockapoo. Rescued him from a women who tied him up ouside and left him there for 2 years and let the neigherhood kids abuse him. Last is my mom's kitty, resuced him for her and when my mom passed away I took him too. Then there is my two sons... 16 and 10!!!

There are 20 snakes kept in the space a bookshelf might take up lol they don't use a lot of space Smile My fiance likes to keep the venomous in display cages, same with the beardie, but other than that not a whole lot of space needed to keep them.

I LOVE your snakes! I didn't include a picture in my post, but I have a corn snake named Voldemort. Besides the dusky pygmy, do you have any other venomous ones?

And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

Unfortunately the snakes do not eat crickets, but the beardie does! And quite enthusiastically, too. I bet if we set him loose in there he'd have them cleared out within the hour, hahah. In fact I think some people do keep geckos loose in the house to take care of the bugs, I heard about it somewhere...but then you'd have to deal with the gecko poo =/

If you lived close to me, I would totally pay you to bring the beardie over for snacking! I would just have to make sure Willow was outside, She might like your beardie too much! Very Happy
