    What else besides snakes do you collect? Any strange, weird or wonderful?
    Post some pics and/or tell us about what you collect.
    Me im a borderline hoarder haha, I collect way to many things. A few things I collect are beer cans and bottles, I must have several hundred of them, all still full
    Jack Daniels also all still full
    Rubik's cubes got over 100 of them too.
    low rider and old-school pushbikes.
    And my oddity collection with everything from vintage medical equipment and animal bones to preserved fox head in a jar and human skulls.

    Show us what you collect!!!

    I used to collect beer bottles, My brother and I would try something exotic every week end, some were nice and some were absolutely disgusting but all the bottles,cans were lined up on the shelf till my wife got the .... and we had to throw them out.
    My major collection is things related to The Phantom. I have a couple of thousand comics from around the world plus lots of other memorabilia.
    I also collect edged weapons,I think knives,swords etc. are art. I also have a few old cameras and associated bits and pieces.
    I also have hundreds of old coins, if anybody wants some PM me

    Ha ha, been there. My brother and I used to collect wine bottle lids ( Wolf Blass were the prized ones), we had over a hundred of them all displayed out on an old shoe shelf. However when mum found out......

    Nice! x2 I also have collected heaps of primitive hunting equipment, skins, furs, antlers etc, when I had more time I used to forge knives and axes and things, made my own bows and arrows and did a lot of flintknapping and primitive skill stuff.

    I also have a mighty fine collection of invertebrates (mainly au tarantulas and trapdoor spider species).
