So I might not get around to posting things as soon as I wanted… I’m EXTREMELY sick today and can’t even really get out of bed at this point :(

Hey everyone, sorry I haven’t posted anything or been on in a long time. I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life and have had to put my blogging on the back burner. I’ll be back soon, with lots of cute pictures to share with you all! Thanks for hanging in there :)

I can’t handle all this cute!

T+ Super Motleys 

(1/2) About the whole Kenyan Sand Boa humidity RI risk thing: It's ultimately going to be up to you weather or not you leave the humid hide in there. I personally think people make too big of a deal about the KSB humidity thing. In the wild they can burrow down into moist soil for long periods of time. I am personally for leaving the humid hide in all the time, because I think the snake will decide what is best for it. My female loves hers and has never had a problem. She's in perfect health.

(2/2) When I first put it into her cage, I got worried because she was in it so much. I left it though because she started eating way better and looking way better with it (I think it’s how she keeps herself hydrated because she won’t drink). Now she probably spends about 25% of her time in the hide and the rest out. Unless she’s shedding and then she will be in there for days. Long story short, she’s never had a single issue and I really think it has helped a lot. Just some more insight :)

Thank you very much! I’m probably going to start leaving it in there 3 or 4 days a week to see how that goes. I’ve just had problems with snakes (coughKayleecough) who will spend ALL their time in there.

If she doesn’t spend all her days in there, I’ll probably look at keeping it permanent. She did shed on her own when I put her in it and left it in there overnight and she’s looking much better.

Glad to hear she’s doing well! KSBs are one of my favorite little snakes. I’m really glad you got to keep this little girl.

I just wanted to say for the Tumblr pet community; My husband and I have chosen to live a vegetarian lifestyle, its just something we feel better doing both in our physical health and morally.

Our dogs still eat meat.

Our cats still eat meat.

Our snakes still eat meat.

Humans are…

I completely agree! However, one small interjection. Canines are actually omnivores as well. They cannot survive on just plant matter, but it is also bad for them to eat just meat. They also require the nutrients found in plants :) This is why I recommend pre-made dog foods with good AAFCO statements/trials.

Surgeons performed a C-section on this turtle and saved her life!A turtle named Dabao was a bit lethargic and zookeepers at China’s Chengu City Zoo thought she was sick and sent her for x-rays. The results were surprising: 14 eggs were stuck in the birth canal. To make sure Dabao survived, the surgeons opened the shell with a skull opener, carefully removed the 14 eggs (which were immediately buried in sand to await hatching) and resealed the shell with epoxy resin.Read more: http://bit.ly/1j2zcqQ via Digital JournalImage via Scientific Illustration for the Research Scientist | somersault18:24

Today I passed the VTNE. I can now call myself a certified veterinary technician :) I’m so happy all that anxiety is over! Thanks for all the good luck wishes everyone.

Now to specialize in exotics (mostly reptiles)…
