Hey Dom,

Guess I will speak up

I have been consumed by my snakes for a 1 and 1/2 years. The list is long, the snakes are healthy and the rats are abundant. Mainly into kings but a few others on the list as well. I am sure Kelvin showed you the collection last time you were here. Drop by for a visit some time.

Follow the link for the collection

Cheers

Jim

Hello,

Name's Roy. I'm relatively new to herps. I got my first corn in the summer, and I got a bull snake last week. I'm a frequent visitor at Ray's, and you know me Dom...I've got the 4 year old girl (Rebecca) and 2 year old boy (Jason) I bring out about every second weekend.

I like most snake species, and a few lizards. Due to money and space constraints I'm growing my collection slowly. My wife and I agreed we'd stick with the two until we get a house or until next year...whichever comes first. Next purchase will be some kind of carpet. Dream snake: Bredl's python, but they have to get a bit cheaper first. Right now I'd just like to get more experience with whatever I can get my hands on as often as I can.

Roy G

My name is Andy. I don't live directly in Ottawa but I live in Kemptville, a solid 25 minute drive away from the Nepean area. I've been into reptile keeping for many years but actually got somewhat serious about it about a year ago. I currently own

0.1 Albino California King
0.0.1 Black Milk
1.0 Volcano Corn
0.1 Ball
1.0 IJCP

All I really want to add to my collection right now is another black milk so I can breed once I know the gender of the one I have. Reason being I am fairly young and plan on going to University. I have someone lined up to take care of them if i have to go away for a little while but he has somewhat limited room.

If anyone wants to drop in and see my small but nice collection shoot me an email or pm!

Dom,

I just recently picked up the rocks. They came in on a partial trade for my green anaconda. They are still pretty small. The girl is about 8' and the male only 4'. Nasty as hell. Makes things interesting though. You can pop by and see them if you like in March. I am heading south for about 3 or 4 weeks to catch the Daytona 500 and to hopefully do some herping. I would like to see your rock again.....I think I saw her when she was about 8'. Is she a little agressive as well?

Ciao fer now-----DONNY

Dom: No problem. I have just about the worst memory as well, and you do get a lot of people through there. If it helps, last time I was out you let me keep Molly for a while after a failed feeding. In any case, I'll introduce myself next time I'm by.

Roy

I'm Martin, I'm herpless though these days but I still take part in the forums once in a while. I had around 15 leopard geckos and some leopard frogs. I used to catch snakes and lizards as a child. My best catch was a praying mantis that I found hanging out on my kitchen wall. I'm studying 1st year psychology at Carleton. It's very interesting.

Donny:

Do u plan on keeping your rocks? Just curious.. Mine are mean as hell as well although my female is becoming less agressive as she grows .. she used to strike glass just seing something move but now she might hiss if I open the door and if I touch her will just push back with her body .. Hopefully shell tame down eventually although I don't handle her anymore unless I have too and someone else is there with me .. shes alwasy been my baby..

RWG: Ring s a bell now .. I think I can put your name to a face.. as for catching me there.. I got a new job with steady and garanteed hours so .. I doubt it .. I only work one shift every two weeks now Money will make u do that..

Martin .. Nice to meet u man ..

Hello everyone, my name is Geoff.

I am 21 years old, and have lived in Ottawa most of my life. I grew up in Stittsville but now am living in Nepean. You can see what i am currently keeping in my signature, and i am getting a Nosy Be Panther chameleon later this month.

so dom, if you are working less at Ray's now, does this mean there is a job opening?...

I'd be down for a 'herp meet' if anybody else is up to it. Tough to find people to talk to about your herps that will actually know or care what you are talking about!

Geoff
