I started with snakes. I was in a reptile club and I was also working at a reptile store as the manager.
I owned a wide variety of snakes.
Years later I got into lizards. I owned bearded dragons. I owned Uromastyx And I owned blue tongue skinks.
I bred the BD's. Huge clutches.
I tried to breed the Uros. Eggs, but no success.
The Bluetongue's I never bred.
I had Egyptian, Mali, and Ornate Uros.
Yes, I have a collector mentality. If I'm interested in something I tend to dive in deeply.
When I had to sell my house, I sold off my tarantulas. But I sold them to a club member who was doing captive breeding so they would become part of the breeding program, not just sit as pets. I had some very rare species in my collection.
Before I sold my house I had also become a Falconer, so that was using up the majority of my time so I had been planning to sell my collection anyway.
Bad pic of me with one of the Falcons.
During this whole time I was competing with my dogs as well.
So yeah I've owned a bunch of different animals over the years. So I know a little about a lot of things and I know a lot about a few things.
