Most people probably haven't.. To me, that is the pinnacle of fun. I live for the chance to go look for reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates.. to photograph them, and sometimes catch them.
My house resembles a small zoo of reptiles and invertebrates, and I am totally fine with that.
Some other things about me..
-As my username implies, I am a SCUBA diver, though it has been years since I got my gear wet. I could use a dive buddy..
-Years ago I did an internship in horse whispering.
-I enjoy collecting rocks, minerals, shells, and fossils.
-I have made an arrowhead out of obsidian.
-I have a lightsaber. It is red.
-My "dog" has scales and would probably eat someone's small dog if given the opportunity. He also really likes to climb people.
-I enjoy road trips, camping, hiking, rock climbing, spelunking (exploring caves).. the usual outdoorsy stuff.
-My profile picture was taken at a "secret" spot which is the only mountain range in the world that a particular rattlesnake is found. I have yet to actually find one myself though. TA speckled for anyone that actually knows what I am talking about.
-Rattlesnake camouflage and venom adaptations genuinely fascinate me.
-I have caught octopus from local tide pools.
-I have been to four continents, but would very much like to do a lot more traveling.
-I plan to eventually have a small zoo.
-I enjoy building things.
-I really like ferns, succulents and cacti.
-I have a mild fur allergy.
-My car somewhat resembles a pumpkin. (Orange Subaru Crosstrek.)
-I am really terrible at remembering people's birthdays.. I can basically only remember one, my best friend's, and that is because it is 9/11.
-I absolutely love Cards Against Humanity, but I don't own it myself. Yet.
-While I'm not 5'10" or taller, or a male model with a doctor's salary, I am a pretty interesting person.
-I am pretty good at massages.
The other possibility is that I often come across as fairly serious at first. I am an introvert (who would have guessed.. ) and generally don't open up until I am comfortable with people.

How best to celebrate my best friend's birthday. (It is on 9/11.. my last idea was a twin towers cake with m80s that blow up the towers when you light the candles. Yes.. I am a sick individual.)
Different reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates I would like to get, and the enclosures I would like to make for them.
-Would rather go look for critters or to a museum than "party".
-Thought I sound interesting enough to start a conversation with.
-You want to.
