Cool Hey,...

Hi, im new to the forums. Although i am only 13, i am VERY good with wild animals and like to study them. Just wanted to introduce myself. Im JD, i have a 2 Red Eared Slider's(both female), a hamster, and i live on a tropical island called trinidad, and i catch wild animals a lot, so i often have a Boa Constrictor( Im am yet to find one that isnt a red tail) or a Spectacled Caiman, or an iguana. i am on the hunt for a few right now that was spotted near my house yesterday. if anyone needs help catching a wild iguana, just ask me.

Emerald, my now free Iguana.

Cazilla, a baby caiman
And, the last for now, a Golden Tegu. about 12 inches long, he weighs about 10 pounds, has razor sharp claws and teeth. extremely vicious. I saved him from a trap in the savannah. He was released a month ago.

Nice. Awesome reptiles.

Just curious isn't there like laws or something that says you can't take animals out of the wild?

Hi and welcome.
Nice pics BTW!


Apparently the laws (if any) are not restricted.MANY of the reptiles in the pet stores are wild caught.Yes,here in Canada too.There used to be a store here that was ONLY reptiles/amphibians and most of them were WC.They were closed down a little while ago,not because of WC animals...but for other reasons (not very clean...etc).

i think some places are different if the wild animal is from there, i used to take frogs and snakes and lots of other stuff from our land but normally put it all back soon
