Hello All. I sure havent been on here in a great while. How is everyone? How are all your pets? Does anybody have any new additions to their family? I have one new member of the family. I purchased a Leopard gecko named romeo. Does anyone have any pictures of their pets to share? I think I have one on here of Romeo.
Romeo is a Super hypo tangerine Leopard gecko. Super hypo means no spotting on back or legs. Tangerine just refers to his color. He is a candidate for Carrot tail. To be a true carrot tail they must have atleast 25% of their tail orange. Their also is a slim chance he will be a baldy also. Baldy means no spotting on his head , but that is very unlikley.

Congratulations on your new addition Vicky!! He's beautiful.
I love Leopard Geckos and think that they make fantastic pets. My son bought his second one around November (I think it was November). The female layed her first egg a couple of weeks ago but the egg proved to be infertile. She is getting ready to lay here next clutch. Hopefully have two eggs this time. She is making a mess of the vivarium and actually partially buried the male gecko while digging. I'll post pictures when the babies are born (around 55 days after the eggs are layed).
Hello all! Lovely gecko Highland lassie! I have never seen one like that before. We have gecko's all over the desert here. They are lovely creatures. How long is your Romeo? He looks big.
My two Shelties are doing well. Had to put Nikki on thyroid meds as he is 10, soon to be 11. Oh my, I hate it when they start getting old cause you know your going to lose them soon. Anyway, he was getting pretty fat but the thyroid meds and his daily walks has really helped him get back down to normal weight. Our other Sheltie, Irish, who we have had over a year now is doing really well too. She is 8 now.
I've had rabbits, cats, dogs and fish. I rode horses and milked goats but never owned one of my own. Maybe someday. We now have special friends that live outside and come to visit us. There is ET, an eastern painted turtle who like laying her eggs in the back of our garden. She lives in the bog behind our house. There are the tree peepers who sing to us from their home in the woods and lots of birds and squirrels. I do wish I could get the squirrels to leave us at least a few hazel nuts though. In the secret garden lives No Feet garden snake and Applesauce toad. They are always there when me and Sarah are in the garden and come out to have a visit. From time to time a deer comes to visit. We also have raccoons and sometimes possums and a rabbit or two comes to call. Once in awhile Pepe Le Pew pays a call. Only ones that are always about are the birds and squirrels, No Feet and Applesauce. No Feet and Applesauce rarely leave the secret garden though. It would be mighty lonesome without them. RebeccaAnn
I have 3 cats and two dogs - but i dont think there is a better feeling that running through mountains on a horse! i've ridden for years...about 13 i suppose...mostly cruisin' on my big western saddle! But i've been in plenty of rodeo's (amateur) but also a lot of competing in english jumping!a wee bit daunting...but very fun! anyone else a horse fan?
New additions to the zoo today. Yes, we have delved into the world of the arachnid. Went to a reptile expo today and ended up leaving with two non-reptilians. Two tarantulas... a Mexican Red Rump and a Chaco Golden Knee. My daughter is horrified!!! Our home now houses my eldest sons 7 leopard geckos (4 babies just hatched), my middle sons corn snake, my daughters hedgehog and now the two family tarantulas (maybe not the whole family (sorry Chelsea!!)).
I have a mated pair of ball pythons. They were not supposed to be of the same gender and to save space, I put them in the same enclosure. I thought they were acting strange. I presently have 6 eggs and a small "calcified" one in a reptilian incubator waiting to see what will happen. A year ago she prpduced 12 eggs but she was not able to hatch them. I also have a Brittany Spaniel who is fascinated by the pythons and at times, there are transient rats destined to be the "main course" for the snakes. A while back I got a deal on 5 rats and before the snakes consumed them I had 13 rats. That was a fine mess I got myself into!. The snakes do limit the number of guests who will come to my house. Both the dog and the snakes belong to my grandsons but because of one mishap or another I am keeping them for the boys. They are hoping the eggs contain a rare "cinnamon" or "pastel" phase hatchling. They have plans for the proceeds already. Auto's (neither is old enough to drive) and electronics top their list. I explained that, since "grandpa" is covering the expenses, built the habitat and automated the heat/ lighting, in the unlikely event one should be valuable I am thinking investment and education. They do not understand that winning the lottery would be more likely to happen.
His name is Oliver. He's not the smartest kitty but who needs brains when you're so cute. He is a Persian, the woman who gave us Oliver would sell her kittens from $600 on up, but we got him for free. Most people either love him or laugh at him.
