    You know you're a snake keeper when...

    ...you have to warn people about what's in your freezer

    I thought I'd start a fun list of ways you know you keep snakes, things that might seem a bit odd to people outside the hobby.

    What are some ways you know you're a snake keeper?

    When all your furniture (dressers & coffee tables+) are chosen because the measurements are compatible with the cages you have or plan to buy.

    When people think twice before asking you to a "pot-luck"....

    When you save "nice branches" on your front porch instead of discarding them, and they're not kindling for your fireplace.

    OMG yes!!! I found the PERFECT coffee table online for 4x2 cages, but I only ordered one and they don't make it anymore. I honestly wanted to cry.

    When you have stacks of tubs with mysterious tiny holes in them around your house.

    When you have a mini freezer/fridge and guests ask if they can use it for their beer... you tell them not to.

    When you have guests over at the same time you're defrosting food for the snakes, and you need to tell them not to go in that room... because there are dead rats on the table.

    There were 75 gallon fish stands on clearance super cheap.
    Brought it home for 50$. Had originally retailed for 190$

    It perfectly fits my 2 exo-terras. One is the large wide and the other a small tall. ♡

    When you leave dinner out without dessert to make sure you have enough time to defrost all the F/T prey to feed all your snakes before bedtime.

    You know you're a snake keeper when... you have dreams that you're eating rats, and you wonder what rats taste like.

    What do you mean, "wonder?"

    How do you tell if they are still safe/fresh for your snakes?
