Is there a considerable overlap between?

Might be an odd question, but what would the venn diagram of reptile community and invertebrate community look like?

Not to be judgemental but both communities have a bad rep. But do they also share the crazies, or are they entirely two distinct type of crazies?

Lastly, this is purely hypothetical ofcourse, If you had to choose between a woman keeps venomous snakes and a woman who owns spiders, who would you pick?

    Is there a particulsr reason for wanting venomous snakes, unless you are a researcher?

      >unless you are a researcher
      Who do you think these researchers are? People in fancy white lab coats?
      Most "researchers" are just the hobbyists who keep these species. Hobbyists are the ones actually leading the research of herps because they're not sitting on their asses waiting for funding. Hobbyists are the ones who figured out rain chambers, keeping finnicky species like Xenodermus alive, establishing captive populations of endangered species like Kaiser's newt. Zoos and museums get most of their herps from private hobbyist breeders who did all the hard work themselves, they only personally import ESA or CITES listed species that we aren't allowed to keep.
      >Is there a particulsr reason
      I've seen this phrase on reddit a lot. "Why do you want some rare herp when you can just have some basic b***h python or leopard gecko like us?" Brainlet Black folk can't understand doing something for the sake of doing it.

    For a GOOD fricking reason. Both hobbies are full of buttholes but herp more than inverts. Herp people will literally have a heart attack if you look at your snake wrong.

      Among the herp group it’s really only the guys in the hot, monitor lizard, BP morph breeding, and elitist subsections of the community that are prone to sperging. For two fourths of those subsections it makes sense: if you frick around with a hot and end up dead from a bite it hurts the hobby as a whole because “hurr durr no one should keep duh venomous animal loo k what it did!”. For monitors you’re working with animals that need a lot of forethought before jumping into them as they’re very expensive to set up shit right for and the larger ones are also very capable of seriously wounding or possibly killing you, which again hurts the hobby. Meanwhile the morph community as a whole gets pretty spergy but the ball Python guys in particular are the worst offenders because they’ll jump through a million hoops to justify generations of inbreeding that shit out dozens of malformed and dying animals to produce 3 slightly different colored snakes that they’ll charge thousands of dollars for. The elitists speak for themselves: Autists who think that owning something different from the standard fare means their shit doesn’t stink. Funny thing is the elitists are the most prone to severe asshurt, especially if you yourself own something rare/different with proper husbandry and call them on their shit since they can’t just brush you off as the common rabble.

    >Is there a considerable overlap between /invert/ and /herp/?
    I feel like a huge part of invertibrates owners were just /herp/ people who wanted to go and expand their field with other weird animals. That's my interpretation because I don't think these are so interesting that as many people would choose them as their first pick as pets over reptiles.
    >both communities have a bad rep
    Literally why? Does the world have so few problems that people must focus their hate and disdain on us for shining lightbulbs over our lizards?

    I mean, yeah a little I guess? Most of the stuff is the same - building a little ecosystem for your animal, insect feeders more often then not, so you're also breeding them.

    I used to own a snake. Haven't kept insects or snakes in a while, but these wild millipedes are pretty cool. I never did like venemous things, though, so... centipedes are out. Part of your venn diagram should definitely be about "can the critters kill you if it bites/stings." Got bit by a wild scorpion once... nothing serious, bit like a wasp sting(unless if you're alergic) but still don't like that. some snakes eat insects, some insects eat snakes...

    Yes, in fact you can find invertebrate vendors at reptile shows and some reptile terrariums incorporate invertebrates. You have a lot of underlying principles for taking care of reptiles and terrestrial invertebrates with some adjustments as necessary. Some reptile equipment companies also cater to the needs of invertebrate keepers.
    >Might be an odd question, but what would the venn diagram of reptile community and invertebrate community look like?
    There is a lot of overlap. It doesn't necessarily mean that all reptile/amphibian owners will own invertebrates and vice versa, but both have been lumped as icky communities for years and so the differences between the two have been pretty small. Though nowadays, reptile ownership is growing rapidly and is increasingly accessible to lots of demographics, so the acceptability of certain animals may start shifting broadly for that group. I would say the same is probably true for invertebrate keepers, but I am not as informed on that subject.
    >But do they also share the crazies, or are they entirely two distinct type of crazies?
    It's mixed. I think the invert and herp communities have their own specific types of crazies, but you can find also find similar types that either have their preferred type or go with both. The main one that stands out to me is that vore homosexuals prefer big snakes and monitor lizards for obvious reasons.
    >If you had to choose between a woman keeps venomous snakes and a woman who owns spiders, who would you pick?
    Spiders for the sole fact that a jumping spider or a basic b***h tarantula isn't going to kill me or cause me to lose a limb if it gets loose (if she owns something like black widow spiders or something, though, that's not great either).

    yes
    >Might be an odd question, but what would the venn diagram of reptile community and invertebrate community look like?
    Mostly common species are gonna be in the overlap of course but one thing I've noticed is a lot of venomous snake keepers own centipedes
    >are they entirely two distinct type of crazies?
    There are certainly some differences
    >If you had to choose between a woman keeps venomous snakes and a woman who owns spiders, who would you pick?
    Spiders since its far less likely to get either of us killed

      assume both the spider and the snake are venomous then.

        Nta, but I'd still choose spider. In the event of a containment breach, I feel like I have a better chance with a spider. Though it being able to hide better might be a problem.

    I wouldn’t call them crazies, they’re people who are interested in legitimately interesting animals. They’re kind of “alternative” pets so there is a good bit of overlap in my experience.

    My girlfriend owns snakes so there’s that. I think they’re cool.

    I'm sorry I can't answer you because I don't know and hate the very concept of communities.
    I would be fine with a woman keeping either snakes or spiders as long as she likes them and isn't just looking for attention.

      FPBP and more or less what I would had said. I have a very solitary lifestyle (I keep a Tarantula myself). Girls aren't something I go out of my way to look for. I stopped caring around 25 years old.

      Idealy a spider because I like spiders and if another girl liked spiders, that's a win-win for me.
