    When your partner tells you your more interested in your bloody lizards and snakes that are breeding this year than a new child on the way!

    When you spend all day worrying about your snake who is at the vet with a mysterious tongue lump and you're trying not to imagine him not waking up from the anesthetic because you feel like he's your child

    That is exactly mine!! Love it!- when you put up with the mean fruit world owner just to get his foam box lids to make hides an ledges!!-when your talking about pets and you say that you have 15 frogs in your room, and the person says "what just hopping around?"- when you cancel plans with COD and your friends just to make foam ledges with your best guy friend.

    when you have a fight with your dad and then totally nearly crap yourself when you open your birthday present and find you've been given a baby beardie then hear the comment 'gee rhiannon, thats the only time we've not heard you speak! say something!!' but your in to much shock and disbelief to say anything except 'EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE' and run around giving hugs even to those that don't like you.

    -you know your a reptile keeper when you get asked 'so you got room for this little fella?' and the reply is...'if not, i'll convert something' then run through everything in your room you can convert into an enclosure.

    - when you can sex a dragon at 4am

    - when you convince your mum to let you keep all 3 reps and that you'll 'work something out'

    - when you get asked how many kids you have and you you say 3, their names and ages, then get side glanced while walking away sniggering to yourself.

    You go to a job interview and use your snake keeping skills to get a job

    "Name a time when your really organised"
    "With my snakes...I write down every single feed, shed and clean down so i can go back and make sure they are all eating well, shedding well and are healthy and happy"
    "Ohh..wow.....interesting"

    No really i got the job..
