I have a 'reptile room' in my house, where temps are a bit more consistent than the rest of the house. And during the winter, warmer, lol. I nap in there when I let the rest of the house get cold. Last winter was ridiculous - power bills climbed up past what my monthly mortgage payment is. Working on fixing that.
Anyways - here are a few pics of my reptiles.
My oldest current reptile, Houdini (named because he periodically escapes his tank - I don't know how, but I suspect he climbs the filter.) He is 18 this year. I have had him since he was a hatchling.
My first snake ever (she is 9 years old this year) Sinthia (Short for Mors Absinthia) Here she is with her second clutch:
Calypso is our bearded dragon. She is cageless, and has the run of the reptile room. A station is set up for her, from which she doesn't usually stray too far. She has a pool, basking spot, heated cave and a window ledge to call her own.
This big girl is Akasha, a BOa constrictor. She is around 10 feet long, and weighs close to 50 pounds. She is about 7 years old, and still growing.
Vladimir is a Boa constrictor also, but one of the dwarf subspecies. Possibly Nicaraguan. This boy is 35 inches of not-so-intimidating trouble. He is very special, and sometimes injures himself, resulting in vet bills that devour an entire paycheck.
Jacket is a Jungle Carpet Python. Mailed out to me all the way from California
This is Alistaire, who died recently of Leukemia. I didn't even know he had it, but when he died suddenly, without warning, I took him in for a necropsy.
This is Peaches, a Brazilian Rainbow Boa, and the whole reason I ever got into reptiles. Saw a picture of one of these in a textbook when I was young, and was instantly and irrevocably in love. Did my research, and found out they were not a beginner snake, so I started with something easier - Ball Pythons, which in turn led to an addiction.
Detail of skin iridescence:
It isn't all of them, but some are a lot more willing to be photographed than others. Colubrids won't hold still long enough for good pics.
