Friday Fun: It's like a Zoo in Here!!

Shannon S Atlassian Team Jul 05, 2019

This is the final installment of my 3-week-long Friday Fun where I mostly just ask to see your animals.

Now I want to see any of your pets that are not dogs or cats. Spiders, geckos, axolotls, oh my!

Share anything that is or is not furry and maybe has more than four legs. But of course, other mammals are welcome too! :D 

Show us what you got!



I have a few odd ball animals to add on your list
Trapdoor spider not sure the exact species but its something in the family Ctenizidae of the order Araneae:


Older well established Ant colony Camponautus sp.:


Brand New Ant Colony started a few weeks back, up to 3 workers now and the queen has a good brood pile going, Solenopsis sp.:


Leopard Gecko her name is gnarly :)


i've Got several fish tanks and I like to keep nano species (meaning fully grown are <2 in in length) so there are a lot of various little guys in there beyond whats listed below but here are a few of the highlight reel of the oddball and not so common species

neocaridina Cherry shrimps, and bamboo shrimps Atyopsis moluccensis


gold lyretail killifish Aphyosemion australe: 


Gardneri Killies. Fundulopanchax gardneri

That is the most unique family of pets I have ever seen!

HI @Jodi LeBlanc ,

Thanks for the comment, and I really love the super oddball species.  There is just something about the outer fringes of taxonomy where hyper specialized animals that fit a super specific niche or have a quirky behavior that makes them different just intrigues be beyond anything else.

Your ant colony must be fascinating to watch! I moved a patio stone a few weeks ago and it exposed a colony with all these eggs and larvae etc. It was incredible rob see them jump into action and within a few minutes they had everything moved into their underground tunnels or somewhere safe. They are tireless workers!

I also visited a bug museum in Victoria a few years back and learned so much about cockroaches, stick bugs, scorpions, millipedes, centipedes, spiders etc Also got to hold them all. Here I am holding a tarantula, which I never thought I could do before that day :)

I don't have any pets right now, but here's one of my favorite animal pics.  @Chris Lutz and I rode mules to the EL Limon Waterfalls, in the Dominican Republic, in 2013.  And of course, I have my Summit 2013 shirt on.  ;)  Fun day.

Hey everyone! 

I have a bunny! His name is Moose! This is him and a comparison to the size of his little brother! He's *nine* years old right now and he was born on Christmas Day. He loves cuddles and kale.

I often thought of getting a bunny as a furry friend for my dog Max, I am glad to see your dog gets along so well with Moose :) Adorable!

Bunny club! Hi to Moose from Silver! Is Moose a Flemish Giant? Silver is an American Blue, a big boy at 9 pounds. He is 7 years young ;)

We used to have hamsters and bunnies. Currently we share a big scared baby Tinker mix and a megalomaniac Welsh pony with my sister in law. This was their first spring time leg stretch after the ground had finally thawed.

Those horses look so happy - kicking up their heels! :)

Huh. Looks pretty funny. Those fishes remind me about my fishes that live in my smaller aquarium. Actually, I have bobbit worms that I recently bought. I didn't know that they can actually help me with my task, however, it's something that is related to the right point of view and I mean the effectiveness for the Ecosystem that should perfectly work for aquarium. Btw, my friend has recommended me to buy them after he read a tip about those bobbit worms. I'm grateful to him, but does anyone know about them??
