Now are we talking about pets only, or should we include critters that have found their way in on their own? You know what, on second thought, let's just forget I said that. ;)

Well, as is the case with Lisa, I have neither the time, nor the desire to compile an invintory. However, I will cover the some of the basics.

Currently I am keeping several species and subsprcies of both North America box turtles as well as Asian box turtles. I have varios aquatic turtles, including, snappers, an alligator snapper, soft-shells, sliders, a spotted turtles, mud and musk turtles, and some others. As to snakes, I have a variety, including pythons and boas, various colubrids (including rear-fanged), and several venomous species. As to lizards, I have skinks (prehensile-tailed and African fire), a green iguana, some African plated lizards, a sheltopusik (maybe, he escaped the other day and has not yet been recovered), and two monitors (water and savannah). As to amphibians, I have a few frogs and toads, a couple of fire bellied newts, a siren. Then there are the bugs, such as tarantulas, scorpions, roaches, a few true spiders, millipedes, etc. I also have three dogs, three cats, three Bourke's paraketts, two zebra finches, and four rats.

Now I don't consider all of these as "pets." As a part-time job (with better than full time hours) I present educational programs, and that is the main reason for keeping a large and diverse collection.
