Introducing my small zoo (lots of pictures)

Since I'm still fairly new here, I thought I'd start a thread to introduce you to my other animals. My current non-feathered zoo consists of 2 dogs, 5 cats (3 of which are 3-legged), 1 chinchilla, 1 hamster, 4 crested geckos, 3 mourning geckos, 1 blue tongue skink, 2 corn snakes, 2 ball pythons, and a garter snake!

Here are some photos of some (but not all) of them:

Emma the standard poodle:


Gracie the mini poodle mix:


My trouble maker, Rascal:


Sophie (Rascal's momma):


Gabby doing what she does best (being lazy):


JJ, our youngest cat:


Tootsie:


Scooter, my very first snake:


Scarlet:

Thanks for sharing! They are all beautiful. I haven't had a snake since I was a kid, but I used to be really into them. I had a garter snake, too.

Thanks! I think snakes are wonderful creatures. I've always been fascinated by them, but I was only recently able to actually get one. My mom used to hate snakes, but I managed to convince her they aren't so bad. She actually kinda likes them now

Thanks! Haha I love that picture of Emma because she looks like she's smiling for the camera. I took that shot right after she got back from the groomer and she was all excited about her new haircut.

Re: Introducing my small zoo (lots of pictures)

Great pics!!! I love them all, but I want Scarlet.....
I think snakes have the cutest faces. The ball pythons always look like they're smiling.

Re: Introducing my small zoo (lots of pictures)

The smiling face is part of what I always liked about snakes. They are just very unique all the way around. My mom is terrified of them. I got my snake when a neighbor's dog was killing it. I actually thought it was dead when I got it away from the dog, but it wasn't. So I brought it home and took care of it. My mom didn't want it anywhere near her though, and the snake knew it. She was the only person it would try to strike at. That didn't help, lol!

I used to take it for rides on my bike. It would wrap around the handlebars and it loved it.

Re: Introducing my small zoo (lots of pictures)

Gorgeous snakes! (And the others too!) We have an amelanistic cornsnake named Darwin who's about 8 now. We got him from a breeder when he was a month old. We also have two turtles, an Eastern Box named Rage and a slider named Bob. We also have 3 dogs and 4 cats all rescues save one. My mornings are busy for the first hour around here and then again around 4:30.

But Kazi has managed to terrorize them all (except the turtles, he's actually afraid of them for some reason) and establish his place as King around here. I never thought I'd have to protect the cats from a bird. Never ever.

Re: Introducing my small zoo (lots of pictures)

I had an Eastern Box turtle as well. I got her when I was 10 and had her until into my 30s. My birds actually weren't afraid of her. I think they didn't know what to make of her, lol! They do have kind of a beak. Actually, looking at her I could really understand the theory of reptiles or dinosaurs evolving into birds.

I wonder why I never got another snake as an adult. Obviously mom couldn't object anymore. I guess I was so into my horses and other livestock, and I also used to have 4 large dogs and many cats, and of course always a bird.
