My #2017bestnine just taught me that my followers aren't very interested in snake photos πŸ˜… The majority of my posts are of reptiles, specifically snakes, yet somehow only one snake made it to the top. Maybe Instagram isn't the ideal platform to grow a reptile fan base, or at least maybe I should rebrand and separate my reptiles from my personal Instagram....just some late night/early morning thoughts.

Picked up a killer pair of baby Northern Mexican Pines Snakes (Pituophis deppei janni) to breed in a few years. Super pumped about it! #snakesofinstagram #colubrid #pinesnake

As far a colubrids go, you can't beat the albino Honduran milksnake. #snakesofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #snakes #milksnake #colubrid

He's mad at me because I moved him out of his enclosure so now he's puffing up and throwing his tail around. Look at this little drama queen. πŸ˜‚ #asianwatermonitor #lizardsofinstagram #reptiles #salvatormonitor #rude #monitorlizard #monitorlizardsofinstagram

I met my first large constrictor when I was only five years old. Since then, I've come to own over twenty-five different species of snake. It's amazing how the reptiles I encountered at a young age imprinted on me, and now here I am pursuing herpetology as a career. There's so much magic that comes with being around animals and nature, including the ones with bad reputations. Snakes are beautiful, gentle, and deserve a better rep, so every day I try and educate people whenever I can. Don't let society and media control the way you perceive things, come and learn by experiencing the wonder of reptiles in person. Happy World Snake Day, everyone. #worldsnakeday #reptiles #snakes #reptilelover

While in Orlando, we decided to go to Pulse and pay our respects to those who lost their lives in the shooting just over a year ago. Full of emotion, both sorrow and love, I implore you all to donate to HRC, The Trevor Project, or some other LGBTQ+ non-profits to help change the way the LGBT community is negatively perceived/treated every day. #pride #LGBT #love

This wasn't worth a dollar, but it was Harry Potter themed so I had to do it.
