    Well, I just found this place online, and I'm delighted to find such a wonderful source of info. I've been keeping carnivorous plants sporadicly over the years, with increasing success each time, and this collection is now in its third year. Mostly Sarracenia, but a few flytraps, some sundews, bladderworts and one Nepenthes. So far so good, though I've certainly had some 'learning experiences' with various plants, particularly Nepenthes.

    Outside of carnivorous plants, I'm a MS student in biology, focusing on biomechanics and currently working on the arboreal locomotion of snakes. I've got a lab full of them, including a pair of gliding treesnakes, and at home I've got a boa, ball python, and blue tegu (along with a museum's worth of bones and preserved specimens). Most precious of all is my wonderful fiancee, who loves reptiles as much as I do, and who is utterly perfect in every way; in my usual joking affectations of mad science, I often say I couldn't have a more perfect fiancee if I'd created her myself.

    Anyhow, hopefully I'll leanr a lot here, and get my plants growing bigger and stronger.

    just nice to see another snake nut. ive got a couple spotted pythons and a Boa constrictor at the moment but have had several other pythons and false water cobras which i hope to get again now that we are buying a house and ill have more room. ive got a "mad scientist" collection also though its mostly minerals and such though just to day i recieved the tanned hide of a gaboon viper, it was an animal that died in a personal collection of natural causes. happy that my wife puts up with me too. she insisted that i get into dart frogs. heck she has even been nailed by one of the spotted pythons and shes not afraid to handle them
