He's pretty clever. Lately we've been making regular trips to the studio. He's already written some hot songs in his spare time, so we've been recording. He can't get enough of the autotune. Mark my words, this snake is gonna be HOT!

Your snake is beautiful (I kind of think all snakes are!) My daughter has a corn snake but I don't have pics.

This post from me is to honor the memory of a reptile that was very special in my life for 7 yrs. We got him when he was 6 mos. old. Started out my daughter's pet before we realized how high maintenance he was!

He passed away last September. This is Lizzie, he was a Chinese Waterdragon.

Awwww all you're reptiles are beautiful everyone I love all animals even the reptiles I would be a trying to be a zoo tech otherwise. Now I use to hate snakes etc until I had to take a reptiles class for school, here are some pics please forgive me for looking like crap I just got out the hospital before these pics were taken, so I was tired, drugged, out etc but I still went to class to help show some of this beautiful creatures, even though I have just gotten out of the hospital. To bad I don't have the pic of me with full size python that guy was huge! but we had an emergency so I couldn't get a pic. Enjoy these ugly pics of me but beautiful pics of the beasties.

Here is a baby monitor, this guy was funny he would hiss at everyone but me then he got away and ran down the hall and all this girls screamed when they saw him coming it was awesome.


With Some sort of Aussie Lizard here


A Star Turtle


This guy kept falling asleep in my arms and when someone would take him he would bite them


Another Aussie lizard I was laughing at him cause when you would tickle him he would growl or make this weird noise that sounded like he was farting

Thanks, unico. When we got him he was tiny and lived in a 20gal. tank. They are from tropical climate so very sensitive to temps and they require UVA/UVB, special diet, high humidity. They grow to be 3-3.5' Lizzie was a big boy, those pics are actually about 5yrs. old. I'll find some more recent ones and show the home we custom built for him. It was a walk-in room, basically. He had quite the setup.

Floweravalanche, those are great pics! Hope you're feeling better, btw. The 4th pic you're holding a waterdragon. Unusual that he would bite..they're actually very docile. A lot of people confuse them with green iguanas, which can be aggressive. Good luck with your classes. I would have loved to have gone into that line of work.

I think snakes sound pretty cool but I still don't like the idea of them just creeping up on me. I like to know where they are. There's a certian type of snake that once they get to a certain size, their owners have to give them away to a zoo or animal centre because they become to dangerous to humans. There was something on TV about these stories where this women was wroken up in the night after she felt her snake strangling her body. They can kill humans once they get to a certain size.

I agree, that's probably why.

Cactus Annie,

Several months ago there was a 3 yr. old boy that was attacked by a 17ft. python in his home here in town. The mother stabbed the snake repeatedly and it let go. He survived, thankfully. The snake did not, which is a shame but obviously it was life or death for the little boy. It was not his fault but his idiot parents for not securing it. If you can't be responsible, you shouldn't own a creature like that. Too many people 'think it's cool' to bring home an exotic but don't have the brains or financial means to care for it.

^ I agree. You know there are stories about dog owners killing their canines because they can't aford to look after them. We live in a Me Want society whereby people just act like children and never think of the consequences but they only live in the moment. They seek instant gratification. You know how expensive it is to look after a dog? I couldn't do it. I love cats but I live on a busy main road where it could easily be run over and that's why I don't have one. I love the photo's of the Chinese Waterdragon that you've posted, but I won't get one because I don't know how to look after it. Some people treat their pets like they are cool objects and they fail to think of the consequences. Some people even treat their children in the same manner.

I agree. Pets can be great additions to our lives but they shouldn't be a burden. We all have choices. My husband did not share in my passion for Lizzie but fortunately we were able to provide him with a comfortable life. I don't have plans for another reptile(we've since taken down the vivarium and donated the equipment) but he really meant a lot to me. His death was kind of tragic, he had an accident and jumped from his branch into a shelf, fracturing his shoulder and collarbone.

Found these pics of his condo. This was constructed at our old house, taken down and built again at the new. We had the garage climate controlled to accomodate him. I used to dream about taking him home to Asia and letting him go in the wild. Even though he was a labor of love, I always felt he needed to be free.

Oh cool Mia! How did I miss this thread?? Magnificent is so pretty I love his plane pic
I always wanted a snake when I was a kid but my mom always said no, so I did have lots of lizards, turtles and tortoises.
I had a lizard named Sammy once because he looked exactly like Sammy Davis Jr, I swear.
