Snakes, lizards, geckos, 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.


Ask me anything  

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.

Besides loving reptiles, I really love baking

Hey guys, I’m doing a PSA on snake myths, and I want to know what are some of the craziest and most far-fetched stories you’re heard about snakes. Answer below, or PM me! Thanks!

teleos:

That snakes will not outgrow their “containers”.

That feeding live food is necessary because.

That snakes are filthy and stink.

That copperheads can breed with black rat snakes.

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.

It’s the second day of school and I’m already incredibly stressed out

Because I took a bio class at a different school (in a different state), my teacher recommended that I drop out of the class I am currently in and take the first bio class there. The class is going to really hard since I haven’t covered the same material as other students have up to this point. I really want to take the class and not have to go back and retake a cell life class… this class is zoology and wildlife based and I really really really want to take it and do good. But I’m not sure if it’s going to be feasible…

I made a lightbox last week and this one of the pictures I took of Jynx, my pretty little pastel. More pictures to come when I figure out my light set-up. :S
P.S. I used various DYI examples to make my own box. For fabric, I just bought some $3 shirts from Jo-ann Fabric

I get asked “can it bite?” a lot about my reptiles. Just to clear things up, everything with a mouth can bite. Also I have been bitten by cats and dogs way more than reptiles. Counting both my own reptiles and wild together

I’ve been bitten by PEOPLE more often than reptiles.

This is literally my answer when people ask if my animals can bite.
