    Default For the love of cresteds.

    What is the craziest thing you have done to obtain that prized gecko?

    I have driven through a tornado and spent quite a long time living on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and canned peaches. Lol. What's your story? :wink:

    I just do jobs around the house and cut lawns and sell some of my animals. I also have a snake catching buisness (seasonal) which I get $1 a snake and usually get 20 calls +/- a week. But since I can't drive I have to ride my bike to the spot where I catch them and some drivers just want to run me over. 8)

    Lol. Sometimes I don't even ask my husband. I just wait for the package to arrive and explain it then. The first time I did this, the doorbell rang, I signed for the package, and brought it into the house. When he asked me what it was I opened it up and said, "Wow! How nice of so-and-so... I'll go set him up now." Nowadays, when the doorbell rings and I walk in with a package, he just raises his eyebrows and I have to pull out the old "now honey, don't be mad" line. Lol.

    Yeah thats how it is with my Mom I am like can I get a gecko and she just says "what are you trying to get there babies to look now" but when I ask her if we can go to the zoo or somthing like that she is like "why don't you just walk around your room." But overall I think she likes all the geckos and snakes and other lizards running around.

    -completely clean my room and get rid of any unnessecary "junk"
    -wash our boat
    -stain the deck
    -powerwash the pier
    -and pay for all the supplies needed Nessie, my mom did however pay for Nessie.

    Default Eli the Matyr

    Well lets see here where do I begin? For about two years straight I ate cup of noodles for almost every meal of the day and bought my self well .............nothing pretty much. I lost 10 pounds, and let my insurance lapse.Things Only changed after nearly drove my girlfriend insane with my rhac obsession (and she's not a "ewwww reptiles" , she loves herps and works at a herp & arachnid store! So that should give you an idea of my problem. When I had finally satisfied my expectations of a good breeding group I relaxed a little, now I am on my way to becoming a productive member of society again. But I've drove through hurricanes (lives in Florida) and skipped paying bills, put off friends and even let my car fall apart! But things are better now I have a very good looking breeding colony and make a little more money. So yeah you could say I have a passion for rhacs, I guess.
