Hiya! My name's Bronwen, I'm 23 and I live in the DC area but originally from South Africa. I breed snakes (at the moment Corns, Kings, Ball Pythons and Columbian Red Tail Boas) and have a cat currently but I've had dogs, cats, parakeets, many many different fish (however, not saltwater), hermit crabs, ferrets, and even ducks as pets before. As you can tell, I'm a big animal lover I've been into marine life for as long as I can remember and my favorite by far are octopuses . I never thought you could have them as pets until 2005 when my online friend had one. So I've been interested in one pretty much ever since. I think now is a good, non-hectic time in my life to start setting up a tank to mature. Thought I would come here for some extra research and help if I needed any. So Hi!
