Default You're Definitely A Herper If:

I admit I'm taking the idea from Melissa Kaplan, or whoever started it in the first place, but I alaways cracks me up. Just start one or multiple sentances with "You're definitely a herper if" then you put whatever you want. I'll start:
You're definitely a herper if you get really excited and tell everyone that snake everts its' hemipenes on your finger, and it smells like cheese!
You're definitely a herper if you think that mousetails would make a nice kind of spaghetti.
Cheers, Peter.

You're definitely a herper if...
...you have several sheds in the garden but no where to keep your lawn mower.
...you keep pretty coloured mice - in the FREEZER!
...police helicopters hover over your house with infra red cameras, then try raiding you thinking you have a cannabis farm in your spare rooms!

Your definitely a herper if you can't walk past a shop that sells rubs without having to stop and examine them, whilst mumbling to yourself something along the lines of... "this could go in there, that would make a nice rack etc, etc, " .... whilst your family stand a few feet away looking embarressed.

Or that when you go to the counter to pay for sed rubs, you proudly announce that these are for my snakes to the counter assistant, just to see her reaction

Your definitely a herper when you can quite happily admit to people that you've got a whole colony of cockroaches living in the sitting room... contained of course but you don't tell them that bit lol

Your definetly a herper if:

You have got a HUGE freezer, but only a small drawer if for actual food

You walk round a car boot thinking if these cabinets and old wardrobes could be turned into vivs

Everytime you sit down to do some important paperwork, the only work you get done is now knowing what the next species of snake your getting is

Everytime you walk out of your rep room,anyone that passes you looks to see if you have any sort of snake or lizard on your sholder

You spend too much time on Captivebred when you know that other work needs to be done

Everytime you walk into a rep shop for something basic, stat ect... you end up coming out with either buying an animal or putting a deposit down on an animal

You sneak out soo many times to the reptile shop, that your wife thinks you cheating on her

Only 20% of the snakes price is what you tell your wife/GF

Your hand looks like its been mauled by a dog, but in actual fact it was the snakes last feeding day

You go out for a drink at the pup, you know that there going to be half an hour before you mention snakes

Your walking the dog with your family, you see a branch and you want it for your viv, so you get the kids to carry it home

Got a few more, but my computer crashed last time so had to do it again lol.

Your Definitely a herper if you travel 600 miles just to pick up a snake !

Your definitely a herper if you check out the fluffy section in a pet shop and think to yourself my snake/s would enjoy those,

Your definitely a herper if you save all the takeaway tubs and think they are suitable for incubating gecko eggs,

Your definitely a herper if you see a poly box and automatically think incubator,

Your definitely a herper if you check on the snakes just before you go to bed.

You're definately a herper if you say that your pregnant wife is gravid and say that she needs to cut back on chocolate because she looks like she's ovulating.

You're definately a herper if you see someone going blue from the cold and ask them if they're coming into shed.

You're definately a herper if you get woken up in the night, can smell a weird smell, say to the other half that a snake has pooed and even know which one has done it, just from the odour.

You're definately a herper if you take photos of your snakes and in the background the living room looks like a bombs hit it and you have tacky wall paper on the walls.
