Well in our house we have 39 herps all together.
(plus 4 dogs, 7 cats, 5 ferrets, 4 pigs, 1 bun, 15 rats, 2 gerbils, 1 prairie dog, 1 ground squirrel, and 2 really annoying african walking catfish!)

I'd like to see how a catfish could be annoying.
Tammy- 28 toads?? What kinds?
All one kind. They're actually great basin spadefoots. I'm breeding them this spring for the Vancouver aquarium. (Yes, I know they're illegal to keep and breed, but I didn't know what they were when I got them.) I'm not going to let them go now, because they eat off tweezers and are not used to predators anymore. They just let me pick them up and don't even care at all.

They're the neatest little toads though! I was trying to get the desert centre in our area to take them, but they already have a population and were reluctant to add more toads to the area. So... i'm keeping them as pets, and when they breed (which I can't really prevent) i'm donating some tadpoles to the aquarium for a display. They can't seem to find any anywhere else. They're great little guys.

I have a lot, but I will never be a contender for having the most. I don't want to become overwhelmed with a few hundred animals. I don't want to have so many animals that I cannot monitor each of them easily, or pay enough attention to husbandry, or worse yet... lose joy and start to view some of it as a chore My collection will be not growing too much (still have a few to be paired up over time so it isn't halted) for quite a few years at least (not including babies that come and go).

Weird! I've never heard of them before so just punched them in the search engine. LOL I'm also interested in how they are annoying

The most we've ever had at one time was 228.

Now, we have much less (97 at last count - not counting babies), but most are much larger. We've kept 70 kinds of snakes, 15 kinds of turtles / tortoises and handfull of most everything else.

Currently upstairs, we have large display enclosures and fish tanks in our living room, a tortoise room and a general reptile room.

In the basement, we have 3 rooms in which we keep the large monitors, large caimen, big snapping turtle, box turtles as well as a seperate cold room for brumating colubrids in the winter.

We keep all of the boas and pythons at the Scales Zoo building, in large display enclosures.

I am a firm believer in quality, rather than quantity. I finally got myself below 60. Gave away at least a dozen Copperheads (which I seem to get overrun with when it is warm).

ScalesZoo, ya need some pointy snakes
I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.
