I have 2 Sulcatas, 1 Redfoot, 2 Leopards, 3 Russians, 1 Gopher plus a Gopher egg in the incubator, and 5 Box turtles.

I messed up the poll..i'm not very computer literate! I thought beside the number we were to list the species so I checked the 1 & when I realized I couldn't key the species I couldn't uncheck it!!

I only have one little cherry head. If I can get this right, maybe I'll get more.....they aren't as much work as I thought they would be. But he's still so little.

I used to have the high numbers like Danny, now I just have a bunch of empty enclosures. :( What I wouldn't give to be able to go back and get some of those animals returned. It's ok however, this time around I can get the enclosures and houses remodeled and then increase my groups slower and with more long range planning. Just gets hard sometimes to not run out and spend money on new animals all the time, but to remember the long range plans. :(

Currently there are only 20 tortoises and 19 turtles here.

I only have one russian, but would love to get more. It's kind of tough living in MN though.

1.1 geochelone gigantea
5.6 Horsefields
2.3.1 Gopherus agassizii
1.0 Geochelone sulcata
3.4 Terrapene carolina carolina
8.15.13 Terrapene carolina triumguis
1.0 Terrapene carolina major
0.1 Terrapene carolina ornata
3.1 Terrapene carolina bauri
0.4 geochelone pardalis (or babcocki??)
1.1 Manouria emys emys
1.3 Manouria emys phayerii
6.0 Manouria emys emys/phayerii intergrades
2.1.3 geochelone denticulata

Josh, This is a very interesting old and inactive thread. Now there are nearly 3000 members, or 10 times what you had when you started the thread!

Any chance of reseting this thread and getting some census data for the current users?

That would be fun!

However, I am sure that right now poor Josh is knee-deep in calendar planning and execution. I am fully in favor of his getting our calendars finished and mailed first!:p

May be a good idea to start the poll Dec 1st and end it Dec 31st so you can have a sort of an end-of-year census :)

Other interesting statistics would be:

- # of species you care for
- # acquired in the past year (could be negative if you sold some or had a death)

It's interesting...there's no middle of the road here. You either have just one or two, or 10+ (like 100!) LOL.

simple, that is because they are addicting, once you get hooked there is no cure.
