This is all I can think of at the moment but I'm sure I'll have to put more up here as I remember them. The venomous snakes on here are the only animals on this list I caught and released the same day. Everything else I've kept as pets, cared for or at least observed in captivity for a week or more. Most on the list have been or are currently my pets:)
