Hello everyone! New member here from Texas in the US. My name’s Steph - nice to meet you all!
My husband finally got his first ball python a couple of years ago. Then he got another one. Then we went to the NARBC in Arlington together last fall… and now he has three, and I have one too! A beautiful Banana Mystic Yellowbelly (she may also be het for Sunset and/or Clown) whom I’ve named Pikabu.
We also keep a couple of red-eared sliders - two were rescued from my mom’s cats and one had invaded a friend’s garden pond and was threatening her lily and fish populations. Not sure how people here feel about keeping reptiles found in the wild, but red-eared sliders are considered highly invasive in my area, so we felt it would be more ethical to keep them rather than release them.
We also have a Texas spiny lizard whom my children saved from our barn cat.
Here is a photo of my lovely Pikabu!
Oops! Somehow I added two pictures instead of just one. Not sure what I did there!
I mean, you wont see any of us complaining :P. Welcome! Im browsing at 11:23 PM so forgive my welcome being so short xD

Thanks for the welcome! What kind of dog is that in your profile pic? Looks a lot like a wolf - so beautiful!!

Here is a photo of our Pastel Enchi Asphalt boy, Loki.

GSD stands for German Shepherd Dog. Its the acronym for German Shepherd haha
Lol! I thought that it might be but I didn’t want to assume .
You have some lovely snakes
