Not Your Ordinary Pets

I'm visiting with my brother in Texas. Not any fuzzy, cuddly pets here. This is Kookoo. She's a red-headed amazon parrot they've had for about 35 years. She doesn't talk. She does bite!

This is Kyle who they've had for a dozen years or so. He actually lives on the front porch, but he comes in occasionally to check the place out. Where's he going in such a hurry?

He made a mad dash over to the snake. They're checking out one another here.

Feebee is a corn snake. I would guess she's about 5 or 6 feet in length. 

And this is Dave, a bearded dragon. She's having lunch. 

The backyard is a peaceful and beautiful place to hang out on a sunny day (when it's not too hot!). The lake finally has some water in it after several years of drought. 

I'll be taking off next week to do some touring around the state. Stay tuned.


  1. Those are definitely not your average pets. When we lost our last one Mr. T we felt it would be unfair to a pet with our travels. Now we simply get our cuddles and our petting in with other peoples pets.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. I had a pet iguana Buddy for over 10 years. She was really fun and scared all the dogs that came over. HA!!

  3. Wow, having the same parrot for 35 years! We had a couple cats that we would have loved to have around that long. Not the two we have now, though! Interesting mix of pets.

  4. So glad to hear your travels, and thanks for sharing the photos of the pets!

  5. Definitely not cuddly pets, but they are beautiful! My daughter had a box turtle for a few years, before she walked away during a move, and she was a good pet. We thought she was a male until she laid some eggs. I enjoyed having her around.

    Your brother sure lives in a beautiful place. Enjoy your touring! :)

  6. Very interesting. I would want a bit more cuddly, although I do remember having (tiny) turtles and guppies as a kid.
