If this doesn’t make you want to visit Peru, then you don’t deserve to see these pics. Shoo shoo scroll away.

Small Pet Respect- Just how long can these guys live?

kaijutegu:

Next time you’re at the pet store and are thinking about taking home a new friend, keep in mind that this should be for life! But how long might that life be? Small mammals, like rats and mice, often have fairly short lifespans, with many of the pet trade’s rodents only living a year or two. Reptiles and amphibians, however, can have much longer lifespans. Here is a chart I made when looking at the reptiles and amphibians my local PetSmart had in stock.

Obviously this list is nothing close to complete, but take a good look! Just because a reptile is inexpensive doesn’t mean it’s going to live a short life; leopard geckos, for instance, can cost as little as fourteen dollars at the pet shop but can live a very long time. Some of the oldest have lived longer than twenty-five years! And then take a look at how long the Russian tortoise can live. If you buy a Russian tortoise as an adult, there’s a chance it can outlive you! Small pets deserve the same love and respect we give our dogs and cats; help your pet live out its full lifespan healthily and happily by making sure to know all you can about your pet’s species and its needs!

I had a tea party with Ophelia. She wanted to tip over the sugar jar. The bow is nice.

OH MY GOD <3 <3 <3

This is it, this is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Thanks internet, it’s been fun but I have no use for you now.

earthmindheartsky said: Have you ever read the children's book Verde? It's a beautiful and charming tale that I think you'd enjoy. (::

*Verdi, pardon me!

I love Verdi—have a copy sitting on my bookshelf! It’s a wonderful little book, with beautiful art, and all snake folks should read it, whether they have kids or not. :)

For anyone who hasn’t seen it, it’s this book.

Cheshire’s color change, 2008 through 2011. She’s still changing a little, but this covers the most dramatic part of the color change. Dates in photo captions.

Freshly shed Brillig + patience.

Come on folks, there are only a few days left to comment on this!  Deadline is July 24th!  This Thursday!

All Americans who appreciate their freedom to have pets should comment. This may only affect big snake keepers now, but any species could be the next target. The entire pet community is being picked apart as we are not supporting each other in protecting our freedoms. Support your pet and reptile community and comment today! Over 80 million American households have pets. Over five million of those have pet reptiles. There should be tens or hundreds of thousands of comments made against adding additional species to the Constrictor Rule. This needs to be shared! Below are Talking Points, comment links, mailing address, sample letter, FAQ and more. 
Deadline is July 24 (no extension): Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is taking additional comments regarding listing five species of snakes (Boa constrictor, Reticulated python, DeSchauensee’s anaconda, Green anaconda and Beni anaconda) as injurious under the Lacey Act. These species were originally proposed in 2010. If listed, FWS would ban interstate transportation/commerce and importation. Remember to be professional and civil with your comments.
Comments must be submitted at www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FWS-R9-FHC-2008-0015-4570 and clicking Comment Now! in the upper right. You may also comment at www.regulations.gov/#!submitComment;D=FWS-R9-FHC-2008-0015-4570.



WHAT’S THIS ABOUT?  WHAT CAN YOU WRITE?  CLICK HERE AND SCROLL DOWN.



Please guys, if you haven’t yet, go visit the site and comment to defend our ability to keep our animals.  If you missed why this is so important to us (and me) last time, it’s this: once added to the Lacey act, these animals cannot be moved or sold across state lines. 


For me, and in time you (you know they’re coming for BPs and smaller exotics next, just look at the bans coming out of West Virginia and the Carolinas), this means:

1.  If you get a job in another state or have to move to another state, you cannot take your pet(s) with you like a responsible owner.
2.  If your vet is across state lines or you have to seek medical attention for your animal across state lines, you can’t take it there.
3.  You can’t ship in or ship out from your state, destroying any chance at a solid business.
4.  Do you travel from state to state doing educational programs with your animals?  Good luck.  You might be able to get a permit for it.  Maybe.  If they’re feeling generous.
5.  Conservation through captive breeding?  Not anymore. 

And if you get caught trying to take your pet or sell your stock over state lines?
1.  Up to $10,000 in fines
2.  Jail time
3.  Congratulations, you are now a felon.

So again, please help us stop this assault on responsible reptile ownership.
