Well, you can see my reptile list in my signature

I've also got 2 cats (Levi, a male DSH; and Java, a female Ragdoll), 1 betta, and a marine fish tank. Before moving back out west earlier this month, I had 3 fish tanks -- a 90 gallon reef tank, a 27 gallon hex reef tank with seahorses, and a 25 gallon freshwater tank... I wasn't able to bring most of that with me, so right now I'm just in the process of setting up the 25 gallon as my one and only fish tank... eventually it'll be a reef tank, once I find the money to stock it up... LOL
That's it for critters right now -- but in the next little while once I'm settled in my own place I'd like to get a puppy as well

Hehehe... well can't really list any of my other obsessions or hobbies, but I do have one that is in my past, and I do keep a variety of other animals. I currently keep:

6.8 spiny mice
1.2 dogs
1.0 cat
0.1 horse
1.0 pet rat

1.0 horned frog
0.1 ancient iguana
0.3 leos
1.0 ETB
0.1 Hog Isle Boa
1.1 BRB's
1.1 BP's
1.1 Jamaican Boas
1.1 Borneo Short-tailed Pythons
1.0 Guyanese Redtailed Boa
1.1 Rosy Boas (mexi)

Feeder worms
50-150 feeder rodents at any time

In the past I have also raised and released 100's of starlings, kept a pigeon and some various other recued birds such as finches; in the past I've also kept rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, degus, various amphibians and reptiles, variety of fish, a variety of invertabrates, and who knows what else is slipping my mind

I used to deal in horses (high end), mostly showjumpers, and a little bit in the hunters as well; showed, trained, sales, etc. After my car accident I couldn't ride for a year and then I made the decision a while ago to get out of it completley... it was sad decision but I wasn't giving my kids the attention they deserved, and I knew they would be happier elsewhere So all but one have been sold. I attached an very old pic of me and one of my special guys.

Damn Linds...... I don't know how some of you people do it, I read different people's list of animals and my mouth just drops :jawdrops:

I just don't know how I would manage feeding so many mouths and keeping up with so many different aniamals all at once. How do you all convience your other halfs to let you over run the house with animals??? I almost had to break an arm to get my 1 snake after all the begging didn't work..... don't know what Im going to do when I tell her I want 2 more

I also keep scorps and tarantulas, warm blooded animals require to much daily care, but I consider myself a cat person also
