I took my largest fm ball python to my fire house a few weeks ago.:) One of my friends had requested a few shots of one of my snakes with some fire fighter equipment and this is one of the shots I got. JD is extremely calm and bomb proof and she actually fell asleep on my lap after this photo secession at the fire house. :lol: :)
In the shot...helmet, SCOTT pack w/ harness, accountability tag, turn-out coat, mask...all on the front bumper of Rescue 24.:)

Wait, what's this snakes name?
PaganFireSnake Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011  Professional Photographer
Jack Daniels...or JD for short. She is the snake that I rescued yrs ago as a baby and was REALLY sick. But as you can see she is happy and healthy now.:)

:D... That's awesome! I absolutely love the 'JD'...

How many other snakes or reptiles(or amphibians :P) do you own?:D

I own quite a few! :lol: I breed mostly ball pythons and corn snakes so I have more then the average collection would have. To be honest I lost count at 20. :rofl: But species wise, side from the ball pythons and corns, I also own milk snakes, king snakes, Hognosed snakes, a garter snake, Children's Python, Red-tailed boa, horned frogs, White's Tree frogs, Green Anoles, Squirrel Tree frogs, red-eared slider turtles, a Hermann's name a few!:lol: It may seem like a lot but from a breeders perspective it really isn't. Plus the majority of the snakes are in snake racks so that dramatically cuts back on the space and care.:) If I kept them all in tanks I'd need another house! :lmao: But aside from my Axolotl and my Squirrel tree frogs, all of the rest are in the reptile room. Plus snake racks are one of the reasons why snake breeders can have a ton of snakes and still have plenty of room to spare.

haha :rofl:... Thats a ton! We used to have a crap ton of fish, although everytime we got oscars, all the other fish would get sick and die... we owned electric cichlids, convicts, a green terror, etc... and not to mention, a peacock bass... they were selling him as a feeder fish for a quarter, but nobody ever knew until he grew to a monstrous size... :P...
we had mice once too, that we bred for our lizard... those mice were cannibals i tell you... instead of our lizard getting to eat them, they ate eachother :stare:... me and my friend were wondering how cool it would be to own a mudpuppy...

Oh I love fish too.:) I've owned a few different species over the yrs. Mostly small tetras, platies, guppies...but also had silver dollars, a knife fish, red-tailed shark, cory cats, etc. I've even had a pumpkin seed sunny and a white crappy.:) Had a red-bellied Piranha for many yrs but went away for a few days and the heater broke and FRIED HIM!:( I was so heart broken and since then have refused to get any fish that requires higher temps. Right now I have a fancy tail goldfish and a few Betta's.:)
And I used to breed my own feeder mice too. But the smell and work just wasn't worth it. Now I just by them in bulk directly from companies that specialize in feeders. And I know ALL about their nasty cannibalistic tendencies. They attack those that they don't like and if one dies they go right for that head and brain. You know I have owned snakes and other herps for over 27 yrs but seeing a half eaten mouse by it's own kind still grosses me out. :puke:

EXACTLY! Decapitated mice!!! I like when peope say 'quiet as a mouse', mice are so LOUD though... :P... I had a friend and she fell in love with one of the mice who had been born black unlike the others, I would stare at her weird, becuase those mice were just... ...:stare:... We've had some interesting fish stories too, like our HUGE plecostomus... We had one once that over night had somehow crossed the living room and landed squarely on a paper towel on the kitchen table :paranoid:... now it sounds like someone took him out, but because of the location of the tank and kitchen table, we were pretty certain he jumped there... :P

I have friends that keep mice as pets and that's fine. Even when I used to breed mine as feeders the adults I'd take out and interact with. But they definitely have that nasty side about them. No offense to any of my friends on here that have mice and read this...but they just aren't for me. Maybe one or two as a pet. But I will never breed them again. Way too much work when breeding them in numbers as feeders.
That's hilarious about that Pleco! I've had African Clawed frogs that have escaped in the past...when I was really little. Always found them in some crazy place...covered in dust but other then that no worse for wear! :lol: :)
