Snakes, geckos, lizards, Oh my!

My name is Emily! I currently share a reptile collection with my best friend Adam! I'm hoping to blog about my sometimes funny life with reptiles and other reptile stuff! My dream is to breed reptiles along side whatever career I follow. I am currently studying in zoology and wildlife. I hope to specify in herpetology one day in the future.

Get That Life: How I Became a Zookeeper

Hey guys! I thought this was pretty cool! Being a zookeeper is something I strive to do. I love that Ms. Sutker mentions that tons of reptile and ambition people are women!

Chico Show!

I’ll be heading to the Chico Reptile Show today! So far there are 7 vendors that I’ve never met before and I’m excited to see what’s there! Stay tuned for pics! If you’d like to say hi to me, I’m wearing a black V-neck with a leopard gecko with a heart over it.

P.S. I also went to the Academy of Sciences yesterday so stay tuned for pictures from that! 

What’s funny about this is that the Dumeril’s probably placed itself there. Mine like to grope me a lot haha!

The worst part about depression is when you feel it creeping up, and knowing there’s nothing you can do to stop it

Earthquake!

So living in California means at some point you’ll experience an earthquake. Tonight’s was a 6.1 magnitude quake located about 6km from where I live. It was enough for me to worry that something was going to fall. It lasted only about 10 seconds at the most. All the animals are seeming unfazed. My geckos were more startled at me turning on the light than anything. Anyways, no damaged seems to be done in the greater vicinity. Rock on California.

That snakes are filthy and stink.

That snakes are slimy.

That snakes cuddle for warmth.

Snakes size people up to eat them.

Baby rattlesnakes are more dangerous than adults.

I had a lady tell me once that she fed her gopher snake cat food its whole life.

This is Val’s Champagne ball python :) it’s about the same age as Ginger, a little less than 2 years. We believe it might be part Pied because of the pattern on his head! (Correct me if I’m wrong, this is just what the seller told us)

Looks like a paradox champagne! A piebald champagne looks more like a spied (spider piebald) from what I understand. fuckyeahballpythons, what’s your thoughts?

reptile-prince said: may I see the screencap? its taken down lol

fuckyeahballpythons:

Yeah, I got a screencap which I just posted but there was much more on the page before it was pulled down. It happened quickly

applepythons, did you manage to take some screenshots?

I took a ton of screenshots of any of the reviews where he repeatedly ask for the review to be taken down, including the original review where he posted her picture. It was still up when I looked through them all.
