Hello!
I may be new to chicken, but I still know a lot about animals in general.
I've had birds, rats, hamster...
I don't have rodents or birds anymore, because they need to get out of their cages offtenly, and I didn't like to be at school all the time.

I then decided to go with reptiles! :D They don't need love, in fact they don't even love me! Yeah!

I'm going to invade this post of pictures, I hope you are ready!

First, my geckos!
They are both female, and have been given away to me.

Kira is a regular one, (Leopard gecko) around 8 years old.
She is missing all her fingers, due to lack of humidity when she was younger...
Because of that, she is really scared when held in the air since she can't take a grip on anything.
And yes, she is a little fat... :p








Anakin was given to me when she was 1month old.
Her rear leg was broken, and her front hand has been crushed by her hide out.
This is when I received her:
(You can see the left rear hand not bending in a normal way)


And this is her now :
She is the same specie as Kira, but paternless









I also have some smal lizard, called Anolis. They are not mine, but I'm the one taking care of them. Sadly, du to their speed and nervosity level, I don't have any pictures.

Next comes my Boa constrictor longicauda ( Long tailed boa)
I named him Seth!

I love him SO much. Never hissed at me, never snapped me, never pooped on me! :D
I got him at 6 month old, 1 foot long








Here he grew a little, a couple of month (Maybe 2)


2 other months later. Notice the color changing!




And that's how he is now! 20 months old, 4 feet
















Here, you can see how small snake's teeth are! And yes... There is a cable in his mouth... I had to play thug-o-war with him...




https://www.backyardchickens.com/content/type/61/id/6269144/Next come the insects!

Voici Rapunzel,( It's sadly a male)
Since mister is mature, he is currently looking for a female... That also means that he's going to let himself die in 5-6 months... :/
Since, he was really tame, and I love him.
Brachypelma albopilosum






Since he's "Dying", I bought a new friend! :D
Brachypelma albiceps. 1/4"
No name yet lol...


My other arachnid is a emperor scorpion, still young.
He's name Ozner, and he is sooo nervous lol, always showing me his pinches.







His two molts he did at my house!






I also have a couple of hermit crab!
(Krabby, Berny, Togepi and Pika)

Berny



Pika



Togepi




Kingler!










And... I have some fishes too xD
I have a 80 gallons with two goldfishes, and two ancistrus.
My bigger godlfish is now 7 years old, and measuring more than 13"










That's it... I still have dogs and cats, but for now I'll stop here lol... Thats was long to do!
If you have questions, don't be shy! :D

Everyone, exept the boa and hermit crabs eat insects.
Mostly crickets, but sometime I give them a couple of worms.
I don't really touch him. Adults ones are quite tame, but when they are young they are nervous and sting more oftenly. He's cute, always opening his claw to intimidate me. I don't really go in his cage. It doesn't need to be clean that often anyway.

Wow, here a few funky bugs I’ve found this year, I only one what one of them are though.
The last one is called a pigeon tremex or a pigeon horntail, the females appear to have two stingers, one is what both male and female have, the one that drills into wood, and the bigger longer one is actually a ovipositor, they don’t sting and are non-venomous and only live is western North America.

I recently started up a terrarium which I am super proud of so far. X3
Got three leopard slugs, both rough and shiny isopods (Some roughs even having orange mottling), and some other critters.

Nice isopods. I really like the rubber ducky ones and thought about pill millipedes because they look like big isopods but they require live moss.

I got some mourning geckos 5 months ago and they are precious little hooligans. Had to remove the Swiss Cheese Plant due to molding issues and they went in a cricket keep temporarily, but moved back in their tank a 3 months ago.

I also have swift isopods now, a mix of Dairy Cows, Giant Oranges and Tropical Greys. They live with two baby African giant land snails. The isopods also came with some bonus earthworms who surprisingly have breeding in there too.

And a tub of baby netted slugs that I found as eggs on the front yard when doing yard work.

So cute! They remind me of the little dudes in Trinidad where my grandma is from

Poor guy dropped their tail already

They also have literally bird-sized moths that are crazy awesome.
