Lordy, some of you guys have zoos! I know this is a old thread, but whatever, I'm bored. I have:

A 10 year old AKC Chihuahua named Toby
A HM Betta named Billy Ocean
Two Tiger Salamanders
I love them all very much <3

Not sure I should admit to our zoo, but this is probably the one place I won't be told I'm crazy (even though I am).

35 adult axolotls, approx. 2000 eggs, larvae, juveniles
3 ADF from a batch I rasied from eggs
7 adult stingrays (freshwater)
53 aquariums with too many fish to count
various species of invertebrates
live food cultures (daphnia, rotifers, phytoplankton, microworms, vinegar eels)
9,000 gallon koi pond full of large koi
7 indoor cats
2 outdoor cats we recently adopted as they were starving in our yard

I dunno why this thread popped up now, but I'm gonna answer! haha.

I have 4 axolotls: one adult male dark wild type, one juvenile leucistic, one juvenile white albino, and one juvenile wild type.

I have one fish tank with 3 cichlids: a blue acei, an electric yellow labidochromis, and I believe a Kenyii. We also have a small pleco and a big raphael catfish in there.

And I have one dog: a corgi-German Shepherd mix :)

Wow, it's been almost 2 years since I was on here last! Crazy how time can fly by without you noticing. I suppose some updates are in order haha.

My dwarf boy and tetras died while in the care of that friend. I wasn't ever really given solid reasons, but it's been so long back that I can't even remember the details of the conversation. After a rather sad breakup, I lost my dog and both of the girl kitties. I do still have my black cat, Twitch though!


These are my pets now (who will not be lost to breakups or outside care, as I'm finally in my very own apartment!):

1 six year old male cat, my big boy Twitch
6 male rats in a very large cage, 3 of them are dwarf rats
1 male leopard gecko, 11 years old
2 female leopard geckos, one 11 the other turning 4 in April
Aaaaannd...

Finally, 1 little wild type axie of my very own! I completely forgot about this website and lost Margie's contact information, so I ended up buying him from the local pet store. But, they told me he was from one of her batches anyhow so I still got a fantastically healthy dude! I've had it since November and watching him/her grow is so fun :)

Default Re: What pets does everyone own?

I just noticed this one...we have two cats, Pampam (nine years this summer) and Leo (unknown but approximately threee years). Then newts, five c. pyrrhogaster (three females, two males - some young too but unsure to be alive in the future since I've not had luck with them), seven hypselotriton orientalis (only one female), two c. ensicauda ensicauda males and a fish tank (bristlenose pleco, myers coolie loaches, some tetras) and shrimps (neocaridina and caridina). Not that big zoo compared to some of you :) kids would like to have more but I'm still the major carekeeper so no dogs or anything too bonding for us.

Lol, don't be like that! you'll get the hang of them in the end, then you'll wonder what all the fuss was about. :)
If they start to look too thin you can throw in a hand full of damp leaf litter as back up and let them pick the bugs out for themselves, just change the leaf litter every week. Their growth might be quite slow, but it'll get them through the tiny awkward stage with minimal effort.

Talking Re: What pets does everyone own?

Well this popped up for me, so why not answer? Lol, I used to believe I had a zoo until I read what everyone else had

I lovingly care for:

2 dogs- Australian shepherd and a CorgixSchnauzer
3 cats
7 platy fish and a few of their babies
2 rats (everyone who said they were gross initially eventually fell in love with their cute charm!)
3 hermit crabs
1 goldfish who lives in a fountain outside
1 minnow who rooms with the goldfish lol
2 salamander larvae (two lined and the other is yet to be identified)
and I'm not sure if these guys count but two box turtles showed up in our backyard over the years and have since laid eggs and a bunch of little babies were appearing. They were the darndest things!)
