25 is right..but i was wrong and didn't put down 2 corn snakes just one. it probably hates me for forgetting about it. but thats ok cause the little bastard already hates me. so its really 26.

for food i spend about 25-30 bucks a month. i get 4 sizes of crickets, and a baby mouse for each of the 3 snakes. i don't really spend much a month on the rest of the stuff. i buy or find/recycle containers as i need them, same with substrate and decorations. it all adds up though..i'm not sure how much i've spent in total.

haha and since i'm bored at work with nothing to do but work, here are some pictures in the same order i listed them above.

P. cambrigei male

males
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...x/IMG_4141s.jpg
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...x/IMG_4135s.jpg
the other male with a female i used to have http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...x/IMG_2610s.jpg

okeetee corn snake getting a piece of dat ass!
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...s/IMG_6445s.jpg
anery corn snake
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...s/IMG_5575s.jpg

striped king snake
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...s/IMG_6167s.jpg

those are all of the critters that share my bedroom with me. if any of the spiders have babies, i'll have hundreds more and will be looking to give them away pretty much. the jumpers i will just give out if people pay shipping (and aren't just going to squash them or whatever), same with the G. rosea, but for the P. cambridgei (i haven't even mated them yet) i would likely charge 5 bucks a piece or something..i'd still give some away as freebies with a purchase of one just to get the numbers down. it will be quite a chore feeding all those little bastards!

yea, i agree..i think cambridgei is my favorite species.

not true about your vagans as far as i know. i don't think there is any color difference between sexes of that species. for the most part, the differences in coloration between sexes only show up once the male matures. just like that cambridgei. up until its last molt, it looked just like the female only a lot smaller.

there are some spiders that look different according to sex from an early stage..like Nephila clavipes http://www.floridanature.org/specie...ephila_clavipes these things are all over florida. the females get really big and have nicer coloration. the males are much smaller and kinda dull looking in comparison throughout their life...maybe not when they are really young, they probably all look the same then.

They are freshwater, and all they need is purified water. So rainwater or out of a water purifier. They dont need much, mine just has a water filter pump thingo. Change the water once a year. I'll take some photo's of it soon.

heres tha plan.
get like 200 extremely poisonous wild spiders.
Hide them in the kitchen and bathtub n shit.
when she fucking flips, tell her you love them and youll get rid of them if she just buys you one pet one.

kind of like asking for a thousand dollars when you need 500

I've had an eastern long-neck turtle (Chelodina longicollis) for a few months. My girlfriend gave it to me for a bday present. It's pretty cool pet, a lot more active than I thought it'd be and a bit vicious(for lack of a better word). It's gone through about 20 small fish and taken bites out of goldfish over a third its size

thats cool..i've thought about a turtle..but i guess they need a fairly large tank once they are adults. plus i'm not really experienced with aquatic animals. my little brother has a turtle...not sure what kind it is though.

hah i wish. the things that are everywhere are those N. clavipes.

theres supposed to be an area of old citrus groves in central florida where someone released some vagans and they wound up doing well there and building up a population. since florida has such a bad history with invasive species, they tried to kill them all off. i got the location info from a guy who is a taxonomist for some department of the state of florida and i went there, but i didn't find anything. i plan on going there again sometime, but its kinda disheartening to make an hour and a half drive one way to a place you failed to find anything. i should probably go at a later time of day when its darker.

Agalychnis is a South and Central American genus. Native North American treefrogs are primarily Hyla, Acris, and Pseudacris. There are a few extra treefrogs that have been introduced into Florida, most notably various genera that end in "dactylus" and Osteopilus septentrionalis.

I spend anywhere from $10 to $15 a week, usually just under $13. Three medium rats, two mice, and one pinkie mouse.

3 rescued adult Python regius, 2 of their 5-6 month old offspring, and one wild caught baby Lampropeltis t. triangulum that I was lucky enough to induce into feeding.

cool, those are all pretty nice looking snakes. rescued them from where? people wanting to get rid of pets? i've seen on kingsnake.com they have some animals for adoption, but i imagine nothing too crazy gets put in that section..and anything good gets snatched up real quick.

so far, the only trouble with them feeding i've had is with my king snake. it will eat fine, but its very reclusive and will always wait till its dark and nobody is around for some time, or after i turn out the lights and go to bed...wake up and the food is gone. other than that, we caught a baby black racer (don't know the scientific name) in our front yard. we kept him for a little bit..a fiesty little one for sure! but he wouldn't eat anything, we tried pinkies, brained-pinkies, and crickets...nothing. so we let it go rather than keeping it and potentially starve him. that snake hated us all though, just coming near its tank, it would get very alert and ready to strike, and would strike too heh. maybe it didn't hate me though, i never got bit once, my roommate did though..of course i didn't hold him as much as she did.

ahh just wondering..right after they molt is when they look their best. yea, it looks like shes pretty much full grown. i really want to get a "pokie" (thats what people call them for short..with various spellings...it just gets to be a pain to type Poecilotheria every time in a casual discussion)..one of these days. i had male ornata, and a tiny ass regalis, but they both kicked the bucket. i think i mentioned.. the ornata was about 4" in legspan, so i figured it was pretty well established..but somehow it got mites, and i cleared that up for the most part..save a couple stragglers..but the spider refused to eat. i kept giving it water to drink but it didn't work out. heres a couple pics of him
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...x/IMG_2311s.jpg not sure what he's trying to do here.
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...ex/IMG_2336.jpg same day..just with lights off and a flashlight
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...x/IMG_0821s.jpg when i first got him.

the regalis i wasn't ever able to get any good pics..it was pretty tiny. i counted that one as being just a small ass spider. they are fairly delicate at that size. i guess thats why they have so many babies per egg sac.

hate to say it..but i think towards the beginning i got a little over zealous in obtaining different species and wound up with a little more than i was ready for. so i experienced some losses of smaller spiders. it still doesn't make sense to me though since i keep them all in the same conditions and some thrive, and some have not. i know they come from different areas, but i try to take that into consideration with certain species..especially if i've read about problems with raising some species. now i pay more attention to the smaller ones as far as feeding more often and sometimes giving them some moisture in the substrate in case they need some liquids. also i am trying to avoid the smallest babies, and get something at least somewhat established.

haha more boring yes, but shes happier now. also, it makes it that much cooler when you catch her out randomly, feeding time or at night.

edit...a little something for you australians http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6282075.stm

i guess you all are having a drought and snakes are moving into more areas populated by people to find water. a few people died from bites, but not many compared to how many snake bites there were. you guys do have some pretty venomous snakes over there.
