I am A.K. Blakely and I am an animal lover through and through. I grew up in a small town outside of New York City right on the Long Island Sound. During my childhood, I had almost every pet you can imagine. My family and myself were always huge animal lovers and made our home available to many different types of animals. We had 3 dogs, 2 cats, a raccoon and several gerbils and hamsters. We also had a duck and a pet bass, which is a wild fish, that both lived in our swimming pool. It was almost as if we had our own little zoo and my friends loved to come over to our house to play with our many animal friends. It was a really fun and sometimes crazy house to live in.
And as I got older, my interests turned to reptiles and I owned 2 geckos, an anole and a ball python snake named Monty. Now I am the proud owner of a cute little white fluffy dog named Bernie and a bearded dragon named Sergeant Major.
I have always been fascinated by the animal kingdom and spend a lot of my free time researching interesting facts about the animals that we share our planet with. So one day, I decided to share it with the world. I hope you find this series entertaining as well as informative and have as much fun reading it as I had writing it. Enjoy and be well, my friends!
