We're currently at a rather low ebb of pets, down to 4 snakes (2 boas, 2 corns) and a box turtle. I was breeding fancy mice for a while, satin-coated longhairs. We've also had, within recent memory, 2 green iguanas and one collared iguana, all rescued, a ball python (ditto) and a Halmahera (Solomon Islands) boa that I had to forcefeed because I couldn't get frogs and lizards (ditto), rats, a hedgehog, and a charming old hamster named Skrunklemuffin whose owner moved back east. He lived to 5 1/2, ancient in hamster terms. Also lots of fish - at peak, after a nasty rescue, I had 4 freshwater tanks ranging from 20-55 gallons, plus a 180 gallon stocktank 'pond', plus 2 smaller betta tanks. That was on top of the 55 gallon reef tank I already had. Needless to say they were a handful to take care of, but I enjoyed them all very much, especially the larger iggy, who was very smart and affectionate.
This is what happens to me when I can't have kitties
If we ever manage to buy a home, it's going to be quite the zoo.
