We are more than rabbits and poultry!!

Besides our rabbits and poultry, we have several other animals here at Cherokee Flats. 

From Frogs, to snakes, to Hissing Cockroaches, and more, we have a little bit of everything!

Meet Pixie & Patty, White's Tree Frogs

Pixie and Patty are about 5-7 months old (01/09/2023) and are SO adorable... Those HUGE eyes kill me!! 

Meet Dimples, the Pink Toed Tarantula 

Meet Neo, The huffy little boy

Meet Neo. He's a Pink Eyed Pinto Hedgehog. His age is unknown but based on size, I'm guessing he's less than a year old. He was surrendered to Pet Supplies Plus in Normal IL and I was asked to take him in. 

I have had hedgies before, 50+ at a time (I did rescue work), but it has been YEARS since a little spikey friend has been here at the farm!

SO, Neo will be in my office with all the other exotics!

Meet Nova, The Crested Gecko 

We got Nova when he was 2 days old, he is now 9 months old and is turning into beautiful Crested Gecko. His enclosure is situated in a corner of my office away from drafts and the AC during the summer and by a window during winter to allow natural light in. While normal house temperatures are perfect for them, I have added a small red heat bulb as I have to have my office rather cold, at 65ᴼF. With special food twice a week, and a good misting 2-3 times a day, this little boy is growing well. At maturity, she will be approx 7-9 inches long.
