Does anybody else here keep reptiles?

Hey, I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we could share pics of our reptiles and helpful advice....., I kinda need some! I used to post in a reptile forum, but that has since closed, so I thought maybe someone here could help me out!

I have a beautiful 18month old male corn, here are some pics of him when he was a baby, I'll try to take some new ones soon! As I said he's now 18 months old & he seems to have a problem shedding, he goes all white as usual, and then back to normal colour, but then just doesn't shed, it's been a fortnight now since he went all white & I'm starting to get a bit worried. Anybody got any advice or tips for me?

It would be great to see some pics of other peoples reptiles if anybody would like to share....,

Ur snake rocks! He's so cute and small. I was thinking of getting some sort of reptile like a horny toad but I don't know yet. Tho I really want a scorpion so that's what I'd prob get. What's it's name and what do u feed it?

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Thank you . He is much bigger than this now, about 5ft long and about an inch/ an inch and a half in diameter! His name is arcade, and he eats fully grown mice now! I'll try to get some recent pics asap.

I love reptiles, especially snakes, I'd love to get a boa, or a royal (ball) python, but I just dont' have the space at the moment. I love lizards too, but i could never keep one, i'm too scared of the creepy crawlies you have to feed them!

I dig the name. That's the thing with snakes they're cool but I could never feed them mice.

Your snake looks really cool. It's great that people sometimes go for something a bit more unorthodox, when chosing pets.



Oh on a side and not really related note: Since this is the wtaworld.com I'm surprised that no one came up with the lame "I have a snake in my trousers" joke yet.

No.

i once woke up and thought i'd bought a large reptile as a pet. but it was something quite...different.



And then she was back, that goddess-like creature, back to torment the souls of the good and distribute free samples of bacon to the bad.

Wow, your snake is BEAUTIFUL! Like a living work of art..

I use to keep lizards in pickle jars but they always died within 2 hours of me catching them.

We have a bearded dragon named Gimley.
She's still pretty small (not yet a year) but she'll get quite big. My housemate wants to get a leash for her so we can take her on walks outside
She's quite personable which is a bit unusual for dragons. She's also really spoiled and lazy. She won't even chase after crickets anymore. She just lets them come to her.
