Outside of herping, I am pretty much a nerd, gamer girl. I collect comics, mainly DC Universe.
I literally am branded for life, I have Batman tatted on my arm.
I love SciFi. Anything SciFi lol
Star Wars is definitely one of my favorite franchises, next to Aliens.
I cosplay, I'm not hardcore into it, but I definitely want to take it to that level. 4 years straight going to New York Comic Con, which is a pretty dope experience.
I love anime. Super big on that as well.
And I havent been recently video gaming since my promotion. But I'm a Sony girl. PS FOR LIFE 🤘🏽.

I am pretty boring, but will reply anyway😊

I own a couple of horses. I am actually horse mad. Owned them most of my life and have shown and have done trail riding. Both girls are retired now and just giant pets but they are much loved.

I work full time and have young 3 boys who are all really sporty. We take them wakeboarding in summer, play football during winter (Aussie rules), attend cross fit junior classes, muay thai classes and go bike riding. I have a pretty busy life. My horses are my "thing" and nobody else really has an interest in them.

I do attend cross fit classes, but I pretty much suck at it but I do give it a red hot go😁

I also have a rainbow lorikeet called Barney who is a great source of amusement to my family. Quite the character. I own 2 jack russells who contribute to my grey hairs. OMG anyone who owns a jack russell will totally understand😨

I also volunteer at a local wildlife shelter. I get to bottle feed baby kangaroos and wombats. I love baby wombats. So naughty but I just adore them. They have the cutest feet you have ever seen.

I love watching football (Aussie rules). HUGE fan. I also live across from a golf course so I love sitting outside in summer with a nice glass of wine so I can listen to the golfers swear and act like babies 😂

which is funny because it stemmed from love of ponds which stemmed from my love of amphibians. All hobbies are connected and interdependent for me. But from June to Oct I’m weeding, planting, watering, propagating...if I come across some worms they are fed to my critters. Critters get all the attention in the winter months.

That's interesting, because most of my side hobbies stemmed from my herp hobby in one way or another- fish keeping, photography, isopods, tropical plants. Beyond that, and working, there isn't time for much else. Field herping is probably my #1 favorite thing to do.

Aww thats pretty neat. The only time I got to experience horses was when I was in the 3rd grade. We went to a little house ranch and I got to ride one for 10 mins. But that was about it lol which sucks lol I suck at any kind of sport lol

In high-school I was trying out for the basketball team but being that i was a senior. It really didn't matter. I was somewhat good. But I tried my best and had fun.

You should try herping on Long Island. I spent a summer on Long Island's north shore many years ago and was surprised with how nice the state parks were. I was in Kings Park.

I live in Houston, TX. It’s a city but I hop in the car and drive 30 minutes in any direction and can find a place to explore. I love it but right now it’s soooo HOT! I’m starting to really want a little rough green snake. My dream is a blue diamondback terrapin but it’s illegal to have them here.:cry:

Academic stuff I suppose. My main interest is paleontology, so I keep up to date on papers and the like; this also entails learning from professionals with more experience than myself. Acting is pretty fun too, so I read a lot of screenplays and do vocal exercises along with singing and dancing. Real hobbies aside, I’m a binge watcher of anime. Nothing too special though, mostly vanilla Shounen junk.

We play monopoly all the way through, collect tokens from all the different sets, watch movies, take day trips etc. I love crafting but not a thing lately.

Oh Covid you suck

Thats pretty neat! I like learning about paleontology. I used to watch Documentaries on the Discovery Channel. My best bet would be checking out the Museum of Natural History.
Im currently binge watching One Punch Man.

I wish my household was a gaming house. As we grew older, me being the eldest and I'm 30 lol am the only one thats a kid at heart. Besides my little brother (21) we're the only gamer junkies. My 2 little sisters are just too girly lol

Ah yes, the Discovery Channel... such a shame how much their show quality has declined in recent years. I live in the middle of nowhere, so museums are a rare luxury, though I’ve heard the Museum of Natural History is enjoyable. OPM is great, it’s the show that got me interested in anime.

I draw, paint, write, read, and get disrespected at work by a manager who has less college degrees than me lol.
Lol we all had a manager that crosses the line 🤣 trust me I had my fare share and I work at Starbucks. What type of drawings do you do?

    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    @XxJennXx, I don't believe so. They are closely related to tigers and my tiger doesn't brumate. I think first year they might but after they see they aren't needing to, they should be good. They might try and hibernate to, mine did for the first year but now I see him crawling around right now.

    @Pookisoo, The refrigerator is a good hospital for tigers.Temperature between 7 and 2 degrees Celsius can stop bacteria. If necessary or if you dare 0 to -2 can also help.Reduce the temperature in a few days from 7 degrees to 2. After that you can reduce further. Feel free to let it sit for a few weeks. Place the animal in a plastic container with a lid with some air holes. Fill it with some soil and / or leaves. Check regularly whether there is still moisture or ice in this container. At temperatures above 2 degrees, they do not go into hibernation. They will then live on their reserves. Doing nothing is not an option, I speak from experience. You can avoid these kinds of problems by keeping them fairly dry for much of the year.

    Hi guys! I’m new to this site and a new axolotl owner. I’ve had my baby (his name is toothpick) for about a month or so now. I finally got a water testing kit and I tested the perimeters earlier today. My ammonia was at 3 ppm and my nitrite was at 2 ppm. This freaked me out because I know they are supposed to be at 0 ppm. I did a water change a little bit ago and it went down to ammonia 1 ppm and in between 1-2 ppm nitrate. I change 50% of my water weekly and clean up any pieces of waste or excess food with a turkey bastwr everyday. Could this just be because the tank isn’t fully cycled yet? Should I be concerned? Toothpick hasn’t shown any signs of distress
