Me first I guess,

3 African Clawed frogs nearly full adult size. in a 40b, Adding in two more soon.

1 Red tail Boa(only about 2.5 feet at the minute)


I'll put up some pictures if i can find them.

The plants are bit messy, i need to get in and do some scaping, but I'm just letting stuff grow first.

Here's Leonardo my Leopard Gecko. He is a very. . . . "Special" little fella. (this was BEFORE I cleaned his tank)

I used to keep/breed crested geckos but recently got out of it after loosing heart (my old veteran died at appx 13 years old).
I've kept tokays, a golden tegu, dart frogs, fan foot geckos and a few others.

Now my fiancee and I have a red tail boa and a variable kingsnake.

May I present Floyd



And unnamed kingsnake, he's a bit off color as he's getting ready to shed

For herps I've kept

snakes: mocquards, black king, leucistic texas rats, corns, eastern hognose, ball pythons, house snakes.

Turtle: Red Eared, ornate boxies

Lizards: Spiny iguanas, leos, cuban anole

These are the ones I can remember offhand. The corns are what began my fascination with morphs/mutations.

Now I find myself looking at water snakes/amphibians. Go figure!

Thread title made me think twice before viewing anyone's pics haha.

Seriously though, glad they made a forum for this. I used to breed leopard geckos and wish I had some pics to share...

I am wondering how le0p keeps his ACF in his tank without a lid because I have a glass lid on my ACF tank and I've already had escapes!

Oh, there's a lid, I just took it off for the picture since I don't have time to replace the crappy DIY I put on there.

I've got one amazing ACF escape story.. Oh night, my dog got out of bed and started sniffing madly. I couldn't get him to come back so I got up and there he was.. a little acf gone on adventure. Just as we get him back in the tank, we noticed his brother was hopping around the living room.

We were lucky, they both survived and thrived but luckily we haven't problems again.

Oh man. I figured you had a lid! Yeah these guys love to get out. My albino ACF some how got through a less than 1/2 inch gap in my glass lid (I've since covered it with tape). I tore my tank apart looking for the little guy and I found him under my lazy boy looking all sad.

He took a good 4 foot fall and is doing just fine, these are truly the cockroaches of the amphibian world lol..

I once had a python who was an escape artist. He wasn't mine, exactly--he belonged to a roommate, but we all took care of him. He was an enormous snake--I could barely hold him up when he was wrapped around my shoulders and waist. I can't even hazard a guess as to how much he weighed.

One day we're all chillin' in the living room, watching tv, drinking beers like college kids do, and we hear *thumpTHUMPthumpitythumpTHUMP*.

Turns out Corona had escaped from his giant tank and decided to go for a slither. Somehow, in a very ungraceful and unsnakelike manner, he managed to fall down the stairs.

On another occasion we found him wrapped up in a huge fake tree that resided in the living room.

There was a baby albino python in the house, too. I used to wear him to lecture on warm days. He liked being a bracelet and a hair accessory the most.
