Guess what?  Yesterday I got my first snake!  Not counting the wild corn snake I housed last winter 'til it got warm enough in Spring to release him back outside, after he snuck into my basement and trapped himself on my glueboard used to catch other bugs, lol.
 (click any pics in this post to enlarge them)
He was a royal pain,wouldn't eat, so I had to let him go.

So here he is, my first snake!

And...... my second snake!  This one's a female.  I just couldn't decide, so I got them both.
And, consequently, I also got my first snake bite... ROFL.  I knew it would happen sooner or later, but I didn't think it would be THAT much sooner!  The milk snake does *not* particularly care to be held. Yet.

Yes, that's right.  I got MORE pets.  It really doesn't *look* like that many pets when I look around my home, but it sounds like a lot when they're all listed out.  I've had a running joke that I should charge admission to my "zoo," lol.  You can see most all of them on my Pets page.  Yeah, they have their own page - check it out if you want to see the rest of their pics.  They needed their own photo space.  I like taking their pics. :P  Here's a running tally of what all I have now.

50-gallon saltwater tank
50-gallon cichlid tank
and 1 Convict cichlid in his own tank
1 red-eared slider turtle
3 musk turtles
about a half-dozen fire-belly toads
2 gerbils
2 snakes
1 leopard gecko
1 bearded dragon
2 female bettas, 1 male betta
and 3 goldfish rescues

Not counting the worms, crickets, and feeder fish...!
