The tongue doesn't go in the glottis.

I'm an animator living in New York that also happens to love reptiles with all her heart. I love Dragon Quest, Pokemon, Monster Hunter and PURPLE THINGS??!

My career is animation, but my hobby is reptile keeping. If you have a question, I will answer it to the best of my ability! My knowledge is best on the species I've actually kept, but I know a bit about other species and I can point you in the right direction if I can't answer a question!

As always, feel free to call me out if you notice me making husbandry mistakes. I'm in this to teach about reptiles, but I want to learn about them, too!

Not as exciting as Pep’s.

I go to change his water and this is what I’m greeted with.  Sorry you’re a grouchy piece of shit but I really think you’d prefer clean water.

Sir Plinko of Pachinkerton, your royal highness.  Bow!  Bow to your highness!

Quick shitty comic of a situation that happened earlier with Plinko!  Plinko’s always very on guard when we’re outside, and he loves scuttling back and forth between the big long outside hallway that leads to our apartment buildings… He was totally fine with me walking next to him, but the second someone else started approaching he got into a really defensive posture!  It made my heart melt.

Sry the comic is shitty my BF has been trying to get me to go to the grocery store for an hour and I really wanted to put this down on paper and then of course I wanted to uPLOAD ITTTTTT

Photos of Plinko without any flash.  Man I really wish I could breed him.  BTS breeding is way too much of a hassle though, too violent, too tricky and not enough payoff.  I really think he is an excellent example of a northern, though.

Plinko’s magnaturals came!  I think it’s too small to be a hide, but I think it’ll add to enrichment… if I can get him to trust it, that is.  I’ll leave it in for a week and if he really doesn’t seem to like it, I’ll remove it and give it to Bean or Raisin.

I’m constantly trying to find ways to enrich and keep him entertained to make up for his boringly small enclosure space. :(  Someday I’ll get him the giant enclosure he deserves, but he generally doesn’t seem to mind.  He spent the last few days sleeping, haha.

Sad news.  Plinko is now nothing but a nose.  The rest of his body will be missed.

I wonder what he thinks about.

Little lizard in a big city!

Introduced Plinko to his NEW BEDDING~~  I mixed some sani chips with eco earth, we’ll see how it fares.  If he doesn’t like it or it irritates him too much, I’ll switch him back to carefresh.  So far he seems to really enjoy digging in it, though!

Here’s a little smelly stinker!

The clothes were 75% off at the Sanrio store, I could not pass up this opportunity.

GUESS WHO GOT HER CAMERA WORKING AGAIN!  MEEE!  So have some pictures of Plinko eating his favorite food, snails.. Some pics of Bean eating his favorite food, roachies, and some pics of Raisinet being an angry hag.

Plinko is ON TO ME…

Desperate times call for desperate measures.  Plinko’s been looking for a mate and digging in a corner all day.  I try to get him out but sometimes I can’t keep an eye on him… so I temporarily just.. stuffed his enclosure with newspaper?  I’m gonna remove it after he goes to bed but it just makes me so sad seeing him so bored… Anyways it seems to be working!
