Im new to this site and glad to be here. I have loved animals all my life and was born to a rather family if mostly boys. My papa use to take us hunting fishing, camping and hiking. Over the years i have had so many pets and many that people would not think were my pets lile i actually had a crayfish i had chickens. Ducks, roster, dogs cats, rabbits, fish lizards frogs, spiders pigs, rats, mice, hamsters, snakes salamander, newts tadpoles and soon to be scorpions. I haven’t had many friends especially with my “unusal” pets so friends refuse to come over, not sure why i keep all my pets locked up safe except my kitty, they probably have more danger from my cat than my pets because my kitty doesn’t like anyone but me she griwls and hisses at my guests and i have to put her on time out. Im also glad to see fellow females here and i know i dont feel differnt now. I do plan on getting more “hot” invertebrates but i have them in a tank in a bigger tank that locks. Eventually too id love to get a couple “hot” reptiles.
I am in the process of moving and once im set up and running again ill be posting pics. My brother is a photographer and he is not squeamish. I also need to figure out the safest way to take pics for my brother and me but also for my pets. My kitty is really the only pet that i interact with (other than feeding and cleaning). Many of the pets i love , hide most times.
Oh yes they will! Im planning on a Sydney Funnel Web next. Thank god they cant climb glass! I think my brother will be safe shooting him/her after i move. Of course safety is paramount im probably going to go full biome vivarium so i can have clean up crews clean so i wont have to risk getting bit since they are pretty hot tempered and dont back down.
Welcome! Your childhood sounds a lot like mine, at least where the animals are concerned. No brothers or sisters, and Mom was to terrified of snakes to ever let me keep one in the house but that didn’t stop me playing with them in the woods and pastures. I had a menagerie. My favorite hen used to come inside and listen while I read to her, or watch tv with me. She usually perched on the arm of my chair. Oddly enough, she seemed housetrained. My dog went to Kindergarten with me. He was the only canine in the class. When our kindergarten graduation pics were in the local paper, his was included. And you’re the only other person I’ve run across who had a pet crayfish!
I loved my lil crayfish i raised him since a baby, i actually cried when my brother accidentally killed him by stepping on him. Tbh i wanna go get another or 2. I dont care if people think its odd bc i love animals and i love unusual pets that few people have. The fun part was seeing him molt out of his old exoskeleton.
