I just kept finding stuff I really liked. Each species is a new challenge in housing and each species has such different habits that's fun to observe. The Crested Gecko was my first true pet reptile then I finally got a snake (my corn) when I moved out of my parents house (my stepmom is terrified of snakes and thinks they're all devil spawn). My corn snake set the ton for me from there and he's just the perfect pet snake so I ended up branching out into some cool uncommon species I'd discovered on Youtube. I've now braved my way all the way up to a python and a boa constrictor =) Got to say my 4 snakes are cooler and easier to take care of them my lizards. Speaking of the lizards I got a Leopard Gecko because of how awesome my friends was. Then I got my skink because they're kinda chill like Bearded Dragons with similar expressions but aren't as big or need UV light and are just over all a different looking lizard. As for the amphibians well I've liked frogs (including Kermit) since I was a girl and I'd always be bringing ones home from the creek. I didn't get into them much when I was older since you're not really suppose to touch them and I was afraid of them hopping away right into my cat's mouth. However, some girls at PetCo showed me this less hoppy species and the one they showed me was their super chill poster child for frogs at the store. He just sat in my hand then walked off into his fresh dish of water. I couldn't stop thinking about him and had to go back after realizing his species care was easy for me to achieve. Well that 1 frog turned into me wanting the super cool tree frog you seen simply because the species was jaw dropping. I'm working on getting a newt now.

I really want to do educational programs about reptiles so the variety will help with that. For now I just do Youtube and answer questions on my photos on DA.

Dumpy frogs are so chill. Great pet frogs! I don't recommend the Clawed Frog though cause they get huge and are expensive to feed. My friend had one and while she enjoyed it's presence it wasn't really a pet rather than a floating vacuum.

Oh, I forgot to mention not all the animals I photograph are mine. I use my friends animals as photography subjects and go to reptile shows/zoos to take photos too.

Oh, ok, I think the clawed frogs are cute though!
They don't need special lights like my lizard does, dumpy frogs need lights too!
But my mom hates frogs:(

Weather or not dumpy frogs needs light is debatable actually. If you can keep your house warm enough they may need no heat at all and for herps that have a low UV light requirement setting their cage where they get filtered sunlight a couple hours a day usually does the trick. These are nocturnal creatures after all. I do not own a dump frog but have considered getting one and am under the impression that I can keep them as described above.

Just my bedroom is full of critters. My family won't let me put any cages, except a large aquarium anywhere in the house. I'm very careful to make sure none escape because if my cats didn't catch and eat the escapee first my step-mom would squish it. Even my creepy crawlies, are my buddies so I want them to stay safe, healthy, and happy. Not to mention I don't want to lose the money I spent to buy any of them or waste the time that I put into their enclosures and taming.

beware getting salmonela holding from your reptiles and amphibies; some of them carry that on their skin
