    Favorite dog ever, name is Razz. She is a Morkie (Maltese and Yorkie mix). 2 years old and full grown. I had taken care of her for awhile for my cousins and then again for the christmas weekend. Best lap dog I've ever seen.



    Crested geckos! I've got two females named before I knew what sex they were. The darker of the two is Hein and the other is Stein. I prefer their more... feminine names; Helga and Stella.
    Helga is missing her tail and I suspect that in the night Stella bit it and it fell off, I never found it so I assume one of them ate it. They are both one year old last November.




    Also here is an animal I eventually want to own.

    The Fennec Fox

    Fennec foxes are adorable, and I'm decently sure they have cute embedded into their DNA, but I can never look at them the same way again because I had a friend that's fursona was one, apparently

    I found a blue tongued skink while gardening. It's quite small, but i decided to keep him\her. He\she lives in a large wooden container with a plexiglass lid. I screwed a lamp onto the side for light and put some rock shelters in and a pool of water, along with some slaters, slugs, and snails for company\food.
    How can you tell if they're male or female?

    I once had two of these:

    It's not really exotic, but it's something that I expect not many people to have as pets or really know about.
    I caught them myself at summer camp years ago and took em' home.
    I named one "Nipper" and I have no idea why.
    I named the other one "Gummy" because he would try to bite my finger but he didn't have noticeable teeth. He would bite down and just dangle off the tip of my finger wiggling his little legs around while Nipper just starred at him like "what the fuck are you doing?"
    Eventually I had to release them back around where I found them.

    thinking of getting a beardy, how much is the terrarium and feeding them
    I got mine for around 50 while he was a baby. His cage cost around 75 and food costs me around 3 a week so not that expensive. Oh wait. UV lights are like 10 and a bulb was 2.50 so he was 140.50. Beardies are the best for new exotic pet keepers. I have one. Hes called Karl :D

    Emus count as exotic pets right?




    Talk about a hard wait though, they'll hatch in 50 days and I have no idea if they'll successfully hatch or even develop. This is day one.

    I will if they hatch, long road ahead for that.
    Gotta turn them by hand every 3 hours until February 28th. By then they'll be developed enough that they'll start sitting upright in their eggs and then break through the inner membrane sometime around March 8th, after that it'll be up to 36-48 hours before they actually break out.

    I also have to weigh them every week to make sure they're loosing enough water and adjust the humidity if they aren't

    Sounds really though. Good luck with that, mate. I don't think I have enough patience, let alone time, to do something like that.

    Yeah, I'm pretty patient but even I'm finding it hard to find it. I plan on setting a webcam up on day 47 though, by then they should be moving around in the egg and making noise, plus there's always the possibility they'll hatch on day 48 but most seem to hatch within a day of day 50.

    Too bad I've finished up most of my major projects though, those 3 hours between turnings are getting pretty long, I'm down to replacing axe handles and general tool repair.

    I don't have any exotic pets, but I have recently purchased a purebred Welsh Pembroke Corgi. I've named her Ruby and I get to take her home around February 11th or 12th, I plan on breeding Corgis once Ruby is of age (2 years old).

    Some of the latest pics of her.




    Edited:

    I would love to own an exotic pet like a Tegu one day, but for now I'll stick to dogs.

    My skink started shedding skin. It wasnt moving so i was quite worried. I tried moving it with a flower stem but it's very stiff and not moving. It's not blinking either. Is it dead? I don't think a slater could kill it. I can't see it's sides because it's at a funny angle so i cant tell if it's breathing.

    Wug just put some gloves on and GENTLY poke its eye. Don't ram your finger in it just gently brush it over 5 times. If it doesn't move or open its eye, Pick it up without gloves and see if its cold. If it is, I'm sorry, your skink is gone

    Or you could spray it with a spray bottle to cause it to blink. Plus if it's still alive you just softened it's shed up for it.

    I'm thinking about getting a bearded dragon. I'd also like another animal to give him company.
    Do beardies get lonely easily? should I get 2 at the same time? and is there any animal combinations that fit well with a beardie? say cat + beardie etc.

    Bearded Dragons and pretty much all lizards are solitary animals, they don't need a companion and are just as happy alone. That's not to say they won't get along with other Beardies or other animals but it really depends on the individual's personality and most animals in general have trouble with being introduced to other animals unless they are raised together.

    He was running around scared, i assume it was his enclosure. It was just a box with a glass lid and some dirt, rocks, leaves, and a pool but obviously that's not right so i decided to let him back into my garden.

    I have 2 parrots and a bearded dragon. I'm very fond of them. Sorry for the crappy quality, took these on my phone.

    Dolly (Jardine's Parrot) sat on the artificial tree in my living room.


    Coco (Senegal Parrot) perched on top of the tap in my kitchen.


    Another of Coco, for some reason he's obsessed with the stairs in my house. Always climbing up them or sitting on the banister.


    And Yoshi my Bearded Dragon sat on my leg.

    I used to have several hermit crabs, all named after television personalities.
    The first one was named Steve Irwin. He lived like 4 years; I'm fairly certain he outlived the actual Steve Irwin, but I don't remember.

    We used to set up books and stuff on the floor and put a blanket over it and let him crawl up the heaps.

    Later, me and my siblings all got new crabs. My sisters was the biggest. It was named princess and it was a complete dick. First thing it did was pinch my hand, second thing it did was eat my brother's crab.

    My Tegu picks up chicken eggs in her mouth and then punts them at the wall to crack them open, then she carefully pokes a hole in the cracked spot with her nose and uses the eggshell as a bowl so it doesn't leak all over the place.
    I swear, people underestimate how intelligent they are.

    I'd love to own a Tegu, but I've been looking into Bearded Dragons too. I may be able to get one of those sooner because they don't require as large an environment as a Tegu does; mind you I'm still living in my parents house in a small room.

    Before I get a beardie I think I'll put it in a 30 or so gallon tank and while it's living in there I want to build my own viv. This channel makes some fucking cool cages for beardies, or any reptile really, and tell you how to do it too.


    Any suggestions for a theme I should use when I decide to make one of those?

    I imagine it would be a similar responsibility to owning a llama. There are some people nearby that breed them. I don't know what specific climate they need to live in or anything pertaining to owning one so do some research if you're serious.

    I'd imagine you could keep a Camel pretty much anywhere as long as it has a place to get out of the weather, it's the same with Emus, they handle the snow just fine as long as they have a place they can get out of it when they want to.
