Default Any reptile lovers?

I guess I'm what some people would call a "creepy" chick. I love guns, muscle cars, beer, and have an insane obsession with creepy crawlies. I have been breeding/raising reptiles & tarantulas since I was about 15 years old. I've owned just about everything... from Rattlers to Pythons to Boas to Cornsakes... pretty much all of it. I operate Horizon Reptiles as a hobby/side business in my spare time. I do it just for the love of the animals, not so much for the money. Sometimes, I'm lucky enough to break even.

Just wondering if there are anymore reptile lovers out there? Would love to see some pics of what you're hoarding. I have around 75 reptiles at last count. Here's a few random pics.

The only good snake is one that I shot at least 16 times (2 mags of 8 shots loaded with 185gr Speer GD) Or 5 times with a shotgun.

Former snake owners are the reason Fl is having such a problem with them now. Fl is starting a trapping season on them and I believe are looking at opening hunting up on them to the point of coyote if you see it shoot it type of hunting.

Things that are soft and furry are good for pets you know dogs cats, hell even Birds Things with no legs are good for hand bags and boots.

Snakes are cool. Any snake I come across, gets identified. Non-venomous, slither on and consume rodents. Venomous, in an area occupied by children/my livestock, dead snake. Snake in water, dead snake. Around here Warter Moccasins are all too common. THOSE things are about as useful as tse-tse flies.

Spiders? I used to go out of my way to kill them. I have learned to adopt a new philosophy, if they do not spin their webs were my face has to go, I do not vaporize them with a contact wound from a 12 ga.

Love the snakes Jynx.
As a kid as I would catch them in the hills where I lived. Also had pet rats. Rats are great pets. Clean, smart and very friendly. But nowadays just Dogs and cats.

Not so fond of spiders but I have no need to bother them if they leave me alone. We do get a lot of black widows around my house, and those I kill just to be safe.

I'm mostly with you Jynx. No spiders or snakes, but a few Bearded Dragons.

Daughter wanted a lizard, wife freaked. Wife now loves the Beardies, but draws the line at snakes.

I grew up outdoors and loved catching snakes, turtles and lizards.
