    I had my first corn snake when i was younger for perhaps 3 years. Our collection now began almost 3 years ago. We got one, because i missed Oscar, and they just kept growing!! :p

    My iguana, Bob, is a little over 9 years in my care and I bought him as a hatchling. I had two anoles before him, for about a year.

    Furry, can you show a couple of pics of that tiger salamander? Some full body shots, more mugshots, and other stuff? That mug is just too cute!

    Longest i ever had was Shiba the snake for like 12 years, however does it count if my dad had it before i was born? If that doesnt count, 7 years with Water Dragons! (char is about 6 1/2, her birthday is in april. I think she has plenty more to go!)

    i've always brought snakes,frogs,slalmanders, and turtles home. i think my first real store bought herp pet was a pacmen frog who i was told ate his five cage mates becuase he was the only one in the cage the morning after the petstore got them. i dont remeber how long i had him but my real addiction strted with Icarus my Mali Uro i got him about 5-6 years ago?

    when i was 6yrs old my uncle gave me my first herp which was his savannah monitor. of coarse i had my moms help with him. he was the first and nicest reptile i have ever owned by far. well he was a year old when i got him and he just passed away a few months ago, im 21 now so that made him 16yrs old and 15yrs in my care.
