Show yourself
 
I seen this on another forum and thought it was kind of neat. So I figured we could try it here. Basically post a picture of yourself and tell everyone a little about yourself.

I'll go first.
I first got into snakes when I was a little brat running around through the woods. Catching any snake I could, including the venomous ones :shock:
I got my first pet reptile when I was 18, a bearded dragon. Since then I have had frogs and iguanas as well. Now I am strictly snakes with having 5 right now and hoping to keep my collection growing.
This picture is of me down at the Ripleys Believe it or not aquarium in Gatlinburg, Tenn. Behind me is a large spider crab, thing was huge!!!

That was when i still had my mohawk..
Mom got us our first iguana when i was in 1st grade and since then we've had all kinds of reptiles and insects. My current iguana is 6 years old and shes the sweetest thing :) My other pet is Jack, the ball python. the rest of the animals live in my brothers room, i just help take care of them and play with them. we've never had a dog or cat or anything else with fur (except feeder mice and rats) because my dad is a party pooper like that lol

Im moving out next summer so hopefully soon i'll start building a big enclosure for the iguana :-D

All the iguanas I have ever had been mean little monsters. Tail whipping me if I just reached in to change the water. I still enjoyed having them though.

This is me and my boyfriend.... Isn't he cute :)

I started my snake obsession this year.
My boyfriend owns a pest control service and one day he came home with a Texas Rat Snake stuck to a glue board.
Everyone at the office wanted to cut its head off!!
I have always been deathly afraid of snakes but I felt SOO bad for the little guy so I had to save him.
I took some baby oil and worked with the snake to get it unstuck.
He was so thankful to be alive. I feed him and kept him for a few days until I felt like he was recovered then realesed him in the local woods.

Since then I have resuced and released 3 more rats and 1 little garter snake.
NowI am totally obsessed and facinated with the little guys and can't wait to add to my collection.

Christy and Izzie (ball python)

Wow, I wish my girlfriend was more like you. She has a problem with me getting more snakes. Even though she is willing to deal with it you can tell she has a problem with it. Therefore my room in the garage I have been building.
