I've heard that if you pick a snake up in a shovel that has been setting out in the sun they get pretty excited and can move pretty fast. You know being cold blooded and all. They must have been coming out of that house like crossbow bolts...

hopefully.

When I was a kid, some burglars tried to burn down our house to cover up evidence.  We had lots of pets, dogs, cats, birds, fish and lizards.  Sadly, all our animals died in the fire, except for the cat that managed to escape outside and the lizards.  I don't know how the lizards survived the smoke or the temperatures.  They were covered in soot, and even many hours after the fire the temperature in the tank was over 100 degrees.  Reptiles really are amazing survivors.

You shouldn't be setting your shovel out in the sun, they last much longer when stored in a cool, dry spot such as in a garage or shed.

2000 reptiles: a shame but not a tragedy. 5 dogs: five tragedies. Not a single reptile would care if you were dying, yet a single dog can tell if you are sad. Poor puppies. Why did they have to live with crazy snake people?

No kidding. If I loose my fish tank and frogs...oh well. I adore them, but they aren't my cats. They don't curl up with me as I sleep, they don't paw at my face whenever I feel depressed or upset, and they don't tell me to 'MOVE IT' when I get home and they're hungry.

I loose my cats (and god knows how I reacted with my old dog), I'd be pretty farking devastated (Sure was with Dracula, that sweet old boy....).

It's still winter in Colorado, so the reptiles didn't get too far if they got out of the house.

What would you loose them on? Are they "frogs of war"? Please do not let them slip in my direction.

Good catch...I'm halfway through an over nighter. I had indeed meant 'lose'.

Bet they had some leopard geckos.  Great pets for kids:  harmless, live up to 15 years, grow to only 6-8 inches, no sticky pads so they can't climb out of a tank.  And they're cute:

I was looking at those, and I'd rather a leopard gecko over a bearded dragon right now. But, I put all lizard plans on hold...it's the cricket thing. I live in an apartment and I don't have ready access to crickets...and I have no willingness to breed and raise them.

Cute as sin though!

FTA-  All of our cars are gone. We only have two cars left. This one and a Mustang so that's not very much help.


Bwahaha- white people problems.

Also if all their cars are gone, how do they have two left? 'All' implies ZERO left.

MrHappyRotter: Reptiles really are amazing survivors.


Wow, that is a sad story, I was waiting for a punchline.  I couldn't imagine how devastated you must have been, as I am a pet kind of guy.  I only like the turtle in the reptile department,

As for the survivors part, maybe that is why dinosaurs always will exist in some sort of form.

Leos will do fine on silent, sedentary food like mealworms and waxworms; the latter are fatty so should be treats not regular diet.   Shop online; much cheaper than pet stores even with shipping.

Really? I have easy access to mealworms, and it's easy to bulk shop the gutload...would they also accept earthworms (as a treat perhaps)?

I had a pet snake when I was a kid. I named him "Snakey" (ok, I wasn't that imaginative). He ate live goldfish, which was pretty cool to watch. I've always liked reptiles since I was 2. I just think they'er interesting. So, this story was pretty sad.

Responsible pet owner's frown on your shenanigans.

8,000 reptiles?  I thought I was getting a bit over the top with a 12' Albino Burmese and 5, 5' boas and my best bud, a 3' plus corn snake.

Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance, son.

How much does it cost to feed that many Dogs and Reptiles on a monthly basis?  House did look like a castle tho- hmmm

So damn wrong

Never tried earthworms. I did have a big leo who accepted the occasional newborn mouse when my baby corn snake was off its feed.  The key thing is that prey must move; leos are not scavengers.

A 3-oz. jar of vitamin/mineral powder will dust sufficient food for a couple of years.

They were commercial breeders for pet stores and hobbyists.  Rapid turnover of hatchlings and on-site breeding of food would keep costs low.

One of my son's first pets was a water dragon.  He named it, "Cute Baby Lizard."

Still, they must have had help cleaning cages @ 8k animals.  On site breeding of food? Oh god, mice stink to high heaven in volumes and rabbits are a project in their own right and NOBODY in their right mind feeds chicks to snakes.  That poop will make a strong man weep after a meal of chicks.

This really sucks.  They lost the house, their dogs AND their business all in one shot.
