Wonder what pets everyone has. My choice might not be everyone's cup of tea, certainly my wife dislikes him immensely but I love my south west Australian carpet python.

I don't know for sure, I've never had him probed so he could be a she but in general females grow larger than males so based on that I think Geoffrey is a he.

It's funny how the womenfolk don't really cotton on to snakes....

Was offered an emu chick once but fortunately was smart enough to say no way yet still dumb enough to have brought 5 of these home over the years.

Nothing too exotic at our house, just our two cats: Lizzie and Tommy. Until you realize Tommy is totally blind. Both are rescue animals and I encourage everyone to consider adopting a handicapped pet if they can find a place in their home and hearts. You will be amazed how little extra care they need. Both cats and we take a walk around the yard every day and Tommy needs no leash - he has the whole place memorized.

Tommy (orange tabby) & Lizzie (Norwegian Forest cat?)

@PalmatierMeg how sweet!

Hmm.

Lizzie looks a lot like Big Boy, except with smoother coat, and, a bit smaller.

Here's Baron and Big Boy, though Conan's almost equal in size, all pushing 20 pounds each. Baron's fat . . . .

Here’s Rocky, our 10 year old rescued Pit Bull. The sweetest dog, who is a great ambassador for his breed and breaks many stereotypes!

And despite being an older guy, he’s still in great shape. Last week we hiked about 8 miles (round trip) up the Wailuku River here on the Big Island and he seemed better off at the end than I was!

We live on a tiny property, only 8 m (25 feet) wide, so we can have only one dog.  Here is our current dog, Caleb, who came from the hound rescue women when he was about 9 months old and is now 11 years.

  He is a Plott hound mix,  72 pounds, and is the sweetest dog I have ever known.  Caleb goes out every day to the forested park or to the beach.

Always a first i guess..  Hear they're also selling auto insurance lately. Wonder if the Emu would bring cookies when stopping by to discuss my deductible, lol

I love all the exotic animals! If it matters, I have no issues with snakes, and my 3 year old girl LOVES her pink stuffed python. ;)

These are our two couch cushions.

This is Sassy. My very faithful gardening companion and house wolf. She loves to get massaged/ scratched with these clawed garden gloves.302C24FB-8B69-4B26-A068-BE82C9FC6C65.thumb.jpeg.4a23f20761d25695de57ed3d70447e99.jpeg

My front doorbell and alert when anyone pulls up to park on the front rocks is standing alert at the front gate in the first photo.  She does the same on the back driveway with her indoor companion "El Gato".  As you can see Senior Gato is in charge even when my Appenzeller just wants to play.  The Appenzeller will herd anyone coming inside the gates, just part of a days work if you don't live with cows to herd in the Swiss Alps.

Sancho. Yeah, he lives up to that name, chases every woman he sees lol. Shelter rescue, brought him home about 7 years ago. I dunno what he's mixed with, but he doesn't act like a Chihuahua at all except for the trembling. No barking, no growling, loves every living creature ----- except birds. He hates birds.

Hello everyone,

Love seeing all the pets, they all look like great companions! Here is my lazy lizard, Scruffy. He is a central bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps) and he is a little more 2 years old. He is one of the laziest and most chilled out animals I have ever seen, and he barely moves no matter what you do. The only time he is not lazy is when he is chasing down crickets! He is a great pet nonetheless and certainly one of the calmest, friendliest, and best lizard/reptile species you can find. Thanks and take care!
