Jess is an African Pygmy Hedgehog. She is currently 4 years old. I had her from a young age from when she was very young. As you can see from the photo. I remember trying to convince my mum to let me have her. “No, they don’t carry fleas” must have been related to about 100 times. Jess has always been a good companion and I had to, unfortunately, had to move away for my job, so thankfully my mum looked after Jess for me and now I have moved again she is back with me and I couldn’t be happier. She feeds on Cat food along with some meal worms which I breed myself. She can be quite grumpy but once she is out and about she likes to make you know usually by defecating on you. Her favourite food to get her put off a grumpy mood is mealworms. Her special talent is becoming an airplane when lifted in the air.
Along with Jess but still in my mom’s care is Daisy. She is a Cocker Spaniel currently 8 years old. We got Daisy from the RSPCA she was a rescue from home direct. We have Daisy for 4 years and she is spoilt. Although she is a little bit on the chubby side her little face is the cutest ever and always wins a treat. Daisy’s favorite thing to do is definitely to sleep. Daisy is always very happy always trying to make everyone in the world around her smile. When she isn’t sleeping Daisy will typically be watching the world go by on the porch. She is a lady when it comes to getting wet and cold. If she doesn’t want to go anywhere she won’t go at all. Daisy is addicted to licking people she has even had talents of ending calls on people.
These are my girlfriend’s dogs Molly the one in the
background and Albert as you can see at the front. Molly and Albert aren’t related however they are both 7 years old. They are full of energy and always looking for the next victim to cuddle to death. Molly just like Daisy is addicted to licking people and sharing her love a little bit too much at times for some people’s liking. Albert, on the other hand, is very energetic and loves his toy ball which he will go anywhere for in order to retrieve. Albert was in a bad state when he arrived in my girlfriends he was bullied out and didn’t get much to eat due to the other dogs eating it all before he had the chance to look. However, Molly, on the other hand, was from a posh family. Molly and Albert are best of friends you could even go as far to call them boyfriend and girlfriend. They do have their little spats at times but overall they love each other unconditional.
Next we have Lopsy, if you have been following the blog from the start she had a friend called Flopsy. Unfortunately around august she away. Lopsy is a very young rabbit at the bright young age of one years of age. Flopsy and Lopsy used to live together from birth but after they had been spayed since then they have matured and don’t live together anymore. Lopsy get her name due to her lopsided ears, she is a very confident and curious rabbit. Lopsy is mainly very laid back, taking each day as it comes along to her.
Here is my bearded dragon Elliot. He is currently 5 months old and I got him just after Christmas in 2016. I used to own two adult bearded dragons during my time I had 26 different pets. He is very adventurous and loves to run around to investigate new stuff. He goes crazy for baby locusts, as soon as the tub is in there he is looking very eagerly ready to eat. He is handled every day and loves in the morning to sit on my shoulder and watch me make his beautiful breakfast. The bearded dragon was the first lizard pet I ever kept. I remember I was fascinated by my mates one who went on holiday so I looked after it. I used to watch him for hours hunting down his prey. The insect part was the worst due to my mom hating them haha. I have had many great moments with bearded dragons and I’m sure Elliot here will be no exception and create many memories too.
They are roughly 1 and a half years old. Down the bottom we have Yoshi and on the log looking very majestic we have Mushu. Again I love bearded dragons so much and I just had to get some more. They are housed together and love each others company most of the time watching Jurassic Park together to see some long distance friends. As they are both girls I hope that in the future Elliot will be very lucky and have 2 girlfriends in order to breed with. They love crickets and once they have spotted the tub that’s it no cricket ever lives. Not only that but bearded dragons as they get to more of adults their diet changes whereas Elliot will have 80% insects and 20% vegetables the opposite applies for these two.
Acquired around February time we have Mr piggy only about a year old so still a lot of growing to do. He will get about 4 ft long. He is currently feeding on one fuzzy mouse per 12 days. It is amazing to watch this snake digest this food, how they get a prey item of a fuzzy down them in a small width body is truly mesmerizing. The snake is rear fanged venomous. However, it’s nothing that will kill you. However, if you are unfortunately on the wrong end even though it’s venomous it will cause minor swelling. Most of the time your body will fight off the venom causing your hand to swell.
New Additions !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just editing this page makes me realise the animals that I have in my care. It’s crazy to think that when I started blogging Elliot was only a little one only 8 weeks old. They grow up way too quickly haha. Well not only now do I have all the pets above I have many more.
My first pet since moving was Arlo. He is a Bosc monitor (Savannah Monitor) although getting him tamed down a bit was a nightmare he is very happy exploring outside of his vivarium. He was so small when I acquired him he was so small he was transported in a cricket live food container. Now he measures about 27cm. He’s getting a bit of a belly on him to, If he carries on I might have to change his name to Homer and feed him donuts. Joking aside I did get bitten by him once it was my bad but having him hold onto your pinkie finger for 15 minutes was something I could have done without at 6am. But overall he is an amazing reptile. I want him to grow up into an adult when he will measure about 3 – 4 foot in length. Due to their pure intelligence, he was meantto be mine and my other half “dog” so to speak.
Until we got this psycho this is Blue the second newest animal. We acquired him from a retired couple in Tewkesbury It was well worth the trip. His mom and dad have both won the world agility championships so I feel very lucky to have one of their offsprings, The plan is in future we can get him into agility to follow in mommy and daddy footsteps. He is currently 3 months old so we have only had him a month, I can’t believe how intelligent he is, we gave him a puzzle which you hide treats in, it on average should take a dog about 30 – 40 minutes to complete. Blue 6 minutes and then he looked at us like what next humans. Full of life, energy and playfulness this puppy is definitely high maintenance but so worth it.
Next on the list is this slow coach, I say that but we have named him Speedy. We got him from a young age and he is slowly growing not by much but slowly he is getting there. Considering he can live for about 80 years would justify his growth rate, these guys aren’t on the small side of tortoises either they grow pretty large. Speedy loves been lazy and not doing much, he does enjoy his fresh greens every morning and with a small tortoise, he eats so much. Speedy is a leopard tortoise it gets its name from its distinct leopard print markings that they acquire once they are much older.
Mr Piggy was my only snake but recently I have got these two beauties. One called Fluffy and another one called Salazar. They are both corn snakes as you can see Fluffy is a bit on the chubby side we are not sure how old she is but she is so aggressive when feeding, I rescued her from a zoo who were shutting down. Along with her came Salazar he is a male with the red and white bands, looks really impressive. He will be breed with Fluffy in the future so I hope to get some impressive babies out of these guys, not everyone taste but they are so friendly they wouldn’t hurt a fly, unless it looked like a mouse ;).
Next, we have our newest recruit Cookie Dough he is going to be lopsy’s new friend we are just waiting for the summer and then hopefully he will become lopsy’s boyfriend, we haven’t introduced them yet he is only young but eats like a hippo. We rescued him from Pets At Home adoption centre, he apparently gives kisses lopsy’s is well known for this so better keep my eyes shut. Both are neutered though so no chance of bunnies although it would have been cute.
Last but not least we have Dumpy and Lumpy, these guys are the latest additions into the reptile shed. They are Whites Tree Frogs looking beautiful and green. They are quite tame I don’t handle them much but these frogs are on of the amphibians that can tolerate and become accustomed to handling. They eat locusts and crickets and now they have started to hand feed white is pretty impressive. The tank is just a UVB strip, they don’t need the UVB considering they are nocturnal but the enclosure and them look so much better.
They are all my animals thanks you so much again for visiting my site why don’t you head over to the blog section to find out and learn about more animals. Less pet based though I must say.
