Question Regarding My Possible Wishlist

Would planning on owning 16 snakes, 20 geckos, 33 tarantulas, and 10 amphibians be unrealistic? If so, where should I reduce each of the numbers at?

If you have none now, yes, that's unrealistic.

Start with one or a pair of each group, at the most, and see how it goes. You cannot know if you'll "mesh" with a certain taxon until you've kept them for a while (months, years).

Buying a dozen or two of a type of animal and then discovering a year later that you really don't like that kind of animal is a tough thing to reverse, selling animals and selling or converting enclosures and altering feeder production. Yes, I've been there.

Only you can know how many and which animals you want to care for; only over much time can you come to know this.

Do you own any reptiles/arachnids at all now? If not (and seeing your previous 11 posts/questions), I would suggest you start with the bare minimum. No offense intended, but ownership of any animal/pet requires suitable housing, food, vet care, etc. Said suitable housing, food, etc requires a suitable income and time. I believe you have already been given that same information.

You've been around here long enough to have learned that. You've been around here long enough to do your own research.

Do you have someone who can help you care for the critters if you are sick or injured?

After purchasing these animals and the equipment required to maintain proper husbandry, will you have enough left over for vet bills?

Do you own or rent your home?
