Collection themes

ive been collecting for awhile...and i started to relize i got bored of just buying random species of herp..then i kinda played zoo and made my own little exhibits and now my collection goes like this

reptiles of the amazon river bed
Scorpions of africa
tree frogs of north america
fresh water sharks of thialand

i guess its my own little way of feeling professional...my question is....does anyone else do anything like this??? or am i the only nerd that does this

thnx

My only "theme" is to get them all! lol!
Seriously, I had in mind to collect a representative pair from each species of kingsnake.:Lampropeltis (getula,calligaster,alterna, mexicana, ruthveni,triangulum, and zonata). I have long since done that and am on my way to getting a whole lot of subspecies as you might guess. One of my targets this year is L.triangulum micropholis. A toughie!

lol Aidan i thought the same thing at first. I dont want a theme but i thought to myself "if one day i didn't have any i should pick a theme" i thought of blue reptiles, red tail boas, none aquatics! (my turtles get anoying sometimes) and i was thinking it would be awesome to start a tentacled snake breeding colony (yeah, there aquatics but there SO cool!)

Well I guess my "theme" would be Lampropeltis Getula Californiae and all the variants. Throw in a little Vietnamese Blue Beauty, Taiwan Beauty and Ball Pythons for good measure

One word, Boa! If it's small and a boa, I want it. Yes I have balls and a GTP and too many corns but soon the corns will be gone and it will be all Rosies, Sand, Hogs, and Brazilians and Tree Boas.
Cheers,
Trevor
