Keeping Large Collection of Herps

Finding your limits can be a bit trail and error sadly :-(
Mine seems to be in the 30-40 animals range (if we're talking mid sized to large snakes; lizards would be lower).
I am worried about selling our house; I can't imagine people walking in to the second bedroom, and going "Oh what a great nursery this would make!" while I"m keeping retics in it.

This is very true. My husband and I have discussed a tortoise, but until our daughter is old enough to decide that herps are something she wants permanently in her life, we won't buy one. My husband and I aren't the type of people that get something and when the novelty wears off, get rid of it. So in buying something that is extremely long lived, I want to be sure this is a hobby she'll want too.
