    How about when the local pet shops are calling you because they got a new lizard or snake in they just know you must have for your collect/breeding stock, lol, or worse you base whether you're poor based on the fact of whether or not you can afford to buy that herp you just fell in love with...

    Or you go to the petshop to pick up feeders and are sent home with an aggressive dwarf hamster and a naked guinea pig with an eye infection! lol! The piggy went to live with a friend, who named him Harry Styles lol, and I'm hoping the hammy will breed with my girls or he'll be a snack!

    You definitely know you have too many reptiles when you goto the pet store to help a friend choose his first snake and the friend goes home empty handed but you have a new enclosure, setup and a ball python (this is how I got Thor lol) or you spend your money you have been saving up to buy a car for the said snake above -.-

    You know you have too many reptiles when the contents of your grocery cart are worms, a bunch of veggies for reptiles, and ramen or Mac and cheese for you.


    Or when you go to a furniture store looking for a new couch and go home with 3 cabinets perfect for enclosures. And resign you and your guests to sitting in camping chairs to watch tv.

    I totally do the grocery thing. But since I live with my fiancé(not into reptiles), I've learned to like all those odd greens so I can claim they are for me too on grocery trips haha. Collard greens, endives, dandelion greens have become a staple in my salads too.

    You Know You Have Too Many Reptiles When... You are having to play catch up with naming the snakes.


    That would be my in laws lol I they stay as far away from the snake cages as possible until they hear me say "honey have you seen (insert snake name here) he/she isn't in the cage" that always gets me laughing hard.

    Oh my some of these are hilarious...
    I guess I am the odd one out, I am not addicted....... or okay lets be honest I DO WANT more snakes but I just do not think I could care for more than one. I wish I could have a pair but I would want to keep all of the babies!
    I suppose having five sons, working full time and having more hobbies than I can manage might do something to curb the addiction.
    I really want a pit viper (I live in the desert I love their cute little heads) but that is never going to happen.....so yeah I am fine with just the one snakey.
