I have rabbits,2 cats, 2 dogs, 2 goats, 6 chickens, and a hampster.
I have rabbits, show pigeons (Kings, Frillbacks, Ice Pigeons, 1 saddle homer and 1 parlour tumbler), zebra finches, coturnix quail, a cardigan welsh corgi, a cat, a millipede, and an Indian Ringneck Parrot
Was quite surprised to see so many on here with reptiles!
Don't have a rabbit yet but we have 3 Chihuahuas, Isabella (16yrs) Ty Lee (5yrs) and Tigerlily (2yrs)
4 cats, Katara (8yrs) Gregor and Ivan (6yrs) and Mercedes (3yrs.) A Russian tortoise, a Box turtle, a Gargoyle gecko and a fluctuating number of snakes, as we have a small hobby business breeding and selling them, though our breeder snakes are pets first and everyone is named. Too many to list right now, LOL! We currently have 13 species (though we've kept 22 previously) and have 49 permanent residents. We also do some educational shows and presentation type things with our tamest snakes, what I call the ambassador pool.
Pigeons? <3 that! We have four rabbits (Lionhead/Harlequin, Californian, Dutch and Holland Lop), four cats (mom, a rescue, and 3 of 5 offspring from when she escaped from the motel we lived in temporarily and got knocked up before we could get her spayed - the other two went to live with my hubby's dad and paternal grandmother), 2 sugar gliders, 10 society finches, 7 diamond doves (the tiniest of the dove/pigeon family) and a turtle (RES). Plus, four feeder goldfish the turtle hasn't bothered to eat, lol. We're saving up for a snake in the future, because snakes are simply awesome!
Here are some pictures of my Zoo. Puppies first, this one is a flash back pic of my newest puppy, Tigerlily, the day we picked her out, at 12 days old. She is a fawn Merle Chihuahua and currently 2 years old.
Day after we got to bring her home.
Cuddling with my middle child, Ty Lee. They play a lot and get on well.
Ty Lee again.
And my first baby, Isabella. She will be turning 16 a little later this year. She had a big health scare at the beginning of the year, needed two back to back surgeries and an almost week long stay at the vet's but she's bounced back and is as sassy as ever, though I'm still trying to get a little more meat on her bones. She lost every bit of spare flesh she had during the ordeal.
And then the kittens ...
First is Katara, our oldest. She a fat and lazy lump.
Our two boy dorks, Ivan the orange and Gregor the gray. Gregor is a troublemaker but he is also super sneaky. Ivan is a lovable doofus.
And the youngest and most annoying of them all, the super fluffy and pretty Mercedes, Mercy for short. She and Gregor get into the most trouble but she doesn't bother being sneaky and talks back when told no about anything.
Some of the snakes.
Zeke, male Anaconda Western Hognose. He is our youngest male and not quite full grown. Went to his first educational event last month and did really well, as expected/hoped.
Patience, our sub adult female Tricolor Hognose. (Completely different species than the Westerns, though with some similarities in behaviors and temperaments.) Although she's not suited to be an ambassador, her adult future boyfriend is one of our best and longest running ambassadors.
Nikys, our Classic colored Scaleless corn snake. She is currently our only scaleless and also had her first time at an event last month and despite being a little young, did very well. Scaleless is a recessive gene similar to hairlessness in rats and cats, it removes nearly all the scales on the top half of the snake's body and does not impact the relative health and longevity of the snake, though like with hairless examples in mammals, can make them a little more susceptible to some types of harm. Scaleless feel really interesting, kind of like suede.
Suri, our nearly adult female Honey Tessera corn snake. Corn genes are a hobby of mine and there are so very many of them, so we have the most corns of any of the species we keep, currently 18. I love the Tessera gene especially, so I've got 11 Tessera.
Hadrian, male part Candycane line Amel Tessera corn. He did amazing at his first show last month and was a crowd favorite, even had a family come by 5 different times through the day to hold him. I was actually mildly concerned that they would try to make off with him, lol.
Okay, I'll stop with this last one, the last but far from least! Iroh, male Green Tree python, our one and only python.
