Hey everyone, you can call me Zara. I have had a love for all things considered odd since childhood. I wanted to start with Arachnids, yet my mother was afraid of spiders. So, my first exotic was a corn snake I named Nella. I got her when I was 11. She was sweet and I loved her. However at that time I didn’t know anything about petco/petsmart being as bad as they are. So she ended up passing away a year in to owning her because of some bad feeder’s I got from them. It took me five years to branch out again, but I did. This time, I got my first leopard gecko. I named him Mello. He was just great. I loved him so much. Yet again, I put my trust in someone I shouldn’t have. I had to go on a trip for a few weeks when I was still in school. So, I left him in my mother’s care like any child would. I came home to a dead Mello. At this point I was hard set on waiting until I was an adult and had my own place. I also wanted to wait until I felt I was ready to move forward with the right people to trust.
Well, now I am 31 years old. I have my own place with my boyfriend. I have the space and resources I need. So, the other day we went out and got a pair of leopard gecko’s with the plan to do everything right.
