    Our latest addition

    Dean, I know the nick name is Old Man, but I here them call him Pops every now and then, and it is easier to say. Thanks everyone for the comments. They are doing great, and hopefully I will get some new updated shots soon.

    Our latest addition

    I have long been wanting to add another species to our collection. And about a month ago I won a little babcocki at an auction for USARK. Well, I went to the NARBC show in Chicago last weekend, and bought three more. I am still working on perfecting their enclosure, but here is a quick shot...

    It's been a while

    I haven't been very active here at all lately, due to numerous reasons (mostly building a 2,000 sq. ft. building for the snake business), but also just trying to keep up with all of the baby snakes. As a result, I haven't made near the progress on my pen that I would have liked to in the past...

    Mimosa Tree

    Thanks. What a shame. I have one on my property and I love how fast they grow, and how beautiful they are in bloom. I knew there was a list somewhere on here, but I couldn't find it. Thanks for the link.[hr] Thanks Yvonne. I'll leave it out, and just admire the one I have that is not...

    Thalia dealbata

    I have one more. Thalia dealbata. I have these growing (I planted them) in my goldfish pond, and every year when I clean my pond I trim my Thalia in half (they grow like crazy). I have taken the trimmings and thrown them by my bass pond. They grow nuts there too, and are tolerant to our...

    Mimosa Tree

    Can anybody tell me if Mimosa Trees are toxic or safe for torts. I am thinking about planting one in my tort pen. Thanks in advance for your responses.

    New Redfoot. Meet Max

    It's been a while since I made it over here. Snakes are hatching, and they are keeping me extremely busy. We have hatched over 400 snakes in the last 2 months. I did make it to Daytona this year, and picked up this new guy. This is Max, our new Columbian Clown Faced Redfoot. So far Max is...

    Thanks Doc. I'll let you know when I am coming through. Thanks Lynn. I am very busy this week with a reptile show coming up this weekend, but I will definitely find a replacement before the end of June.

    Why are baby tortoises hard to keep?

    I don't have much to add, but I did want to say that there has been some great advice, and some great outlooks, posted in this thread.

    Aldabra Pen latest Update

    Thanks Doc. I did remove the Lantana yesterday, and will be looking for a suitable replacement soon. I don't really want to take any chances either. Where exactly is your neck of the woods? I ask because I work in the oilfield, and do travel to Houston quite regularly. So getting together...

    Russian Home with Growth! thanks Sun for coming out!

    It looks very nice. I like the walls as well. Do they winter in there?

    Aldabra Pen latest Update

    Thanks guys. I think I am going to remove it and look for a replacement.

    Aldabra Pen latest Update

    Thanks Todd. I will definitely have to pay attention to it. I will say that neither of my torts have shown any interest in it as of yet. I only put it in there, because a friend of mine that used to keep Iguanas said that his Iguanas loved it. While I am not a DVM, I made an assumption that...

    Aldabra Pen latest Update

    Thank you to everyone for the wonderful compliments. This has been a labor of love (maybe a bit more labor than love), but I am to a point where I can relax on the work end and do a bit more enjoying. I figure I have about 3 to 5 years before they need to move into the bigger pen that is yet...

    Aldabra Pen Progress!

    I posted the latest updates in a new thread. Below. I am not putting any steps, as these guys will be moving into a bigger Pen before they get too big to lift out of this one. I don't mind that you wnat one...

    Aldabra Pen latest Update

    I haven't been on in a while, because snake egg season is in full swing, and it is eating my time up. But, I still have to find time to take care of my four legged reptiles. I have done some more work to my pen since my last post, and I thought I would show some of the work here. First up...

    Aldabra Hugging Thread

    We'll give you credit for that Greg. Although I am pretty sure you could pic up one of those one month olders (just don't squeeze too hard when you hug them). I definitely want to see that picture. Thanks for adding your pic in this thread. I think I'll leave the smooching to you.

    Aldabra Hugging Thread

    I didn't want to clutter up Charlie's thread, so here is my pic hugging my Aldabras. It was getting very abnormally cold for our part of the country, and I was moving the torts into the snake room for the evening. I figured it was a great time to have the wife catch a shot. I hope you...

    Meet Moses

    Great pic Charlie. I love the name. Moses looks to be doing great. Hey DAV46, I'll play too. When I get home this evening I'll get a pic of mine for the hugging thread (although mine are only about 5-6 lbs each).
