I am into all critters equally. My house is a farm-zoo ! I grew up in the country & have just returned to it once again. As a child; myself & the few others close enough to get together; spent all our days in the fields, forests, ponds & rivers that surronded us. We gathered everything we could find from bugs to frogs to squirrels, birds & right on up. (sometimes even the neighbors cows!!). We gathered plants, too, including mushrooms & toadstools. We put everything back after someone was able to help us find out about. (I suspect sometimes the grown-ups made up stories when they didn't know !!). This curiousity stuck with us all & grew to a love of nature. To this day we get together on rare occasions & have the most fun comparing pets & plants !! That is how I got started.......
HOW TO .....

I always had a curiosity for them when i was younger, but my family didn't like them. I remember going to the country to catch blue racers with my brother, but my mom or dad didn't like them so i never got to keep any thing i caught. Then later in life i met a guy that had bearded dragons before we started dating ( they ended up dying before i met him). After almost a year of us being together i bought him 2 leo's and the fasination went from there. Now it's hard not to go to an expo and bring home a bunch of new herps.

Now my mom wants a bearded dragon(she fell in love with mine). She will even hold my corn snakes. so anyday now when my beardies hatch we are going to go out and buy everything she needs for her first reptile at 50 years old(never to late to start a new hobby). I also got her her first tattoo at 46. I'm a bad influence LOL.
1.2 Bearded dragons (Login, Raven, & Jean Grey) 1.1.1 Corn snakes(Havoc,Sable, & Kink0 1.5 Leo's (Psyloke (Lucky-male) Speedball, Domino, Rouge, Siren, Elektra) 1.0 Veiled Chams (Neo), 0.1 Rose Hair T. (Night Crawler) 0.0.3 Crested Geckos (Shiva, Storm, Beast) 0.2 Kenyan Sand Boas (Tigra & Cloak)

I have always liked snakes but my parents would not let me keep them when living at home. So i had moved on till one day not long back, I was walking the rck yard and noticed a group of inmates (about 30) in circle kicking some thing. I went over to find out what was happening and took home my first gopher snake
