    Hi there everybody! With the exception of another chameleon since mine passed away in 2015, and 2 more dart frogs and a small possibility of an Ackie monitor (I'll probably wait until my bearded dragon passes away though for that one) And some occasional small things like mantises and other insects, my terrarium collection is almost done! This is really exciting! It's been over 4 years in the making! In the meantime I would like you all to meet three new additions! One of which I've had for a while and didn't get around to posting about.

    First off back in November my almost 4 year search for what in my opinion is the second most beautiful lizard on Earth ended when I finally found my jeweled lacerta/ocellated lizard! Gosh are they hard to find! Even captive bred the supply is low and they are often out of stock on most websites that sell them and even when they are in stock it's mostly hatchlings. Adults are expensive and a lucky find. A few times when adults were available I either didn't have the money right then or didn't have a set up for one and then low and behold a juvenile pops up at my local Petco and I nabbed him quickly! I swear I was about to post an ad looking for one on one of those reptile classified sites. In these two pictures he's still brown but he's since turned green like he's supposed to and his blue spots are much brighter! He's also a good 60% larger! Since they live in the Mediterranean area of Europe including part of Italy I named him Constantine but if he turns out to be a female I might rename him Minervina after the wife of Constantine. I'll get some up do date pictures soon!

    Secondly are two animals I got less than three weeks ago when I went to Nashville with my cousin and aunt for the Repticon expo being held there on May 19th and 20th. My cousin got two gorgeous tarantula slings and I came home with these guys who both were absolute troopers on the 500+ mile drive back home. First there is my 2nd favorite frog species and in my opinion second most beautiful after the blue poison dart frog, a black and yellow/bumblebee poison dart frog who I named Yellowjacket! I have a couple pictures of him alone plus two beside his older brother neptune, my blue poison dart frog who I hope he eventually grows the same size as! Finally there's an animal I've been considering getting for a few years and have really wanted a lot. This is Cinder, a 3 year old female gray banded kingsnake! Really touching actually is that parting with her was a little emotional for the guy I got her from. This snake was very special to him and was like his child but he wanted to retire and travel with his wife and he didn't know how easily he could do that while caring for all of his snakes. I have an extra strong obligation now to give her an excellent life and I will send him pictures as soon as I can!

    Two updates guys! First of all, very unfortunately, Yuma, my common collared lizard, passed away on the 7th after an unexpected and sudden accident in his tank. For some reason I don't quite understand and had never been a problem before, he out of the blue tried to eat a big clump of substrate and I guess it just got stuck halfway down. I'm positive it was quick at the very least though. Two days from now on the 15th would have been the one year anniversary of getting him. R.I.P: Yuma. Here's a nice and healthy picture of him I got on the 5th two days before he left us.

    Secondly here's a new picture of Constantine the jeweled lacerta like I promised! Now bigger, brighter and greener!
