Reptile lovers


Anyone who has reptiles, collects reptiles or otherwise enjoys them out there?

Im sure there are some.

Come say HI.

Im a reptile hobbiest whose taken most in as rehabs or rescues. I have 8 aquatic/semi aquatic turtles, 3 ball pythons, a leopard gecko a mountain horn dragon, a firebelly toad, 2 Savannah Monitors and a blackthroat monitor (among other furred pets).

They are all equally part of the family

And you KNOW I am Cindi!!

I also do exotic animal rescue work and adopt them back out. I'm a tough one when it comes to where they go. I turn down way more than I approve.

1 iguana, 2 boas (one common - one red-tail), 5 ball pythons, 1 blood python, 1 western hognose, 1 plated lizard - along with the furries, feathered and eight-legged beasties!

I have an adult male Ball Python named 'Tanveer'. He's awesome and he is a rescue. I have had him since April '09 and he is my very first one. He actually just started eating again after a 4 month long fast.....sigh. They can be such turkeys! My profile picture is of me holding him

I have thee normal balls up for adoption and a common boa (BCI). I'm really not into the idea of breeding. So many already out there. It's just a responsibility issue. Be responsible with them and know they'll go to homes BEFORE you breed them. Snakes have an awful lot of eggs in a clutch...

My balls are normals. They are currently living with my sister. I only still have 2 at my house. I had originally wanted to breed, but never got my morph and now really dont plan on ut 1. My worst rescue, he'd had his vent ripped open and chewed by a rat, (not just a bite) He is doing great. and Cleo, my first snake ever. I got her in August of 08 as a fresh hatchling. She is now 550 grams and eating small rats (seems weird to remember a year ago I fed her small mice.) My son has 2 corn snakes. He wants to breed also, but the 2 he has now wouldnt make pretty babies.

I have eastern box turtles.

terrapene carolina carolina

All of my current ones except one were hatched right here and raised in my outdoor enclosure.
The one exception is a rescue hit by a lawnmolar.

Are we allowed to post pics up in here?

The more pics the better. Is there space here for me? I like reptiles but my apartment doesn't allow ANY reptiles so I have Firebelly toads.

Plus my mom vowed never to visit if I got the Rosy Boas I really wanted (this almost made me buy them. LOL)
