    This is a thread where you guys can show off pics of your herps! Reptiles, amphibians, arachnids, insects, whatever you want! Discuss, comment, prattle away. Have fun!

    First up is Cornelius, my amel cornsnake! First picture is of when I got him in febuary, second picture is one from just several days ago, and third is from a month ago but shows off his colors the best! He's such a love, if I had my own house and had space and money to do it, I'd have many of these critters. Corns are simply amazing! And SOO many colors...

    And these are my pick ups from a local herp show. Their names are Fred and Wilma, and they are Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. They're pretty nifty, easy to handle and HISS at you. They scare the daylights out of my mother, and truth be told that's the main reason I got them! Bwahahaha. Their favorite food is oranges.

    I also have a rescued ball python, but I don't have a picture of him.

    Here are some of the reptiles that we've rescued and re-homed, or who have passed while in our care:
    Wild Green Snake:

    Trouble and Tampa, our savannah monitors who were brothers. We raised the large one from a hatchling, and the smaller one stayed in a petstore for the first six months of his life:

    Ryza, our red tegu:

    One of the albino cornsnakes:

    Breakfast, the ribbon snake:

    That's all of the pictures I have right now, but we have had many reptiles, and I hope to have many again one day. Right now we are in a financial bind (aren't we all?) so we had to find homes for all except the beardies and the ball python.

    Enjoy the pictures!

    I wish I could get my laptop to turn on, I have about 200 photos of various animals on it that I cannot get to at the moment. We will eventually slave the harddrive to another computer, but at the moment, we're lucky to have this one working.
