Feel free to ask for advice in regards to keeping exotic animals.

This is my day to day sharings of my interactions with the world. My bipolar episodes. My music cravings. Free yourself of needless negativities and you will see the beauty of the world.

Mostly tattoo designs, reptiles that I've kept or worked with, personal artwork and photos from my daily adventures; be they on a mountain trail or pissed at the pub.

A lot of people have reblogged this because of some argument about veganism. but I’d like to point out that more animals are subjected to cruelty than just the cute puppies and kitties and bunnies. Alternative pets like reptiles and rodents and invertebrates and fish are not only abused and neglected as well, but many people don’t even care because they see them as ‘lesser’ animals not worthy of love or even basic respect. Exotic pet lovers struggle with ignorant and insensitive people who would belittle them and talk about committing violent acts against their beloved companions to their face. Many pet stores are full of sick and dying reptiles, amphibians and arachnids, left to suffer until they die because the employees simply don’t care about their well-being. A snake can’t tell you when it’s in pain. A frog can’t cry. A spider can’t beg for mercy.
Exotics are stigmatized, depicted in media as the animals of choice for “creepy” people and disgruntled, sadistic bullies. Tarantulas most significantly, as cartoons such as Rugrats and Total Drama Island have introduced tarantulas and had them smashed as jokes. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen one positive portrayal of tarantula ownership on television. But that’s moving towards a separate issue entirely.
So, how about this? Reblog if you’re against cruelty against ALL animals. Not just the cute ones.

I found out that a local pet store is carrying Nile Monitors for pets. I just… omg no. These things are not for pets. No! This is like having a wild cat as a pet or an alligator. This is incredibly irresponsible. Especially because if they are released here into the wild, there is a chance they could survive. There is already a breeding population in the Florida Everglades.

Have you not considered that there may actually be responsible keepers out there?


I have kept a number of giant snake species and worked with multiple large varanid species for the past ten years. Given the correct environment, diet and enrichment, V.salvadorii can become fantastic pets.


Yes, I would agree that they are not for the novice herpetoculturist. But they are extremely rewarding, so long as you do your research and prepare yourself for a 7ft highly intelligent lizard.


It’s people like you who are ruining the hobby. Captive breeding for conservation purposes means that we can maintain healthy populations of otherwise extinct species.

Quote reblogged from KakeRanger with 150 notes

try your hardest, no matter how uncomfortable it feels, to open up to those closest to you. It can only help, even it comes at the price of some initial anger, it can only lead to forging stronger bonds with the people who care about you.
