I was reading this thread and scratching my head confused! It wasn't until I read Becki's post about wanting a Chameleon - and realizing that now she has Haley - that this is an old thread!
I am slow to catch on sometimes, but wow - I was confused
I love reptiles! I like snakes, lizards... you name it. I don't think I would have a snake for a pet - but I do find them facinating and love to handle them (I have a yard full of garter snakes and I feel like a mini Jeff Corwin when I hunt them and get them to climb onto a stick
I would definately own an Iguana or a Chameleon ...or any other facinating beauty. I'm not at the point right now to take on any more responsibility though. Someday I will...
I would definately do my homework and learn the proper way to house and feed them, and knowing there are people like Lizgirl here to help guide and educate me - well it makes me want one even more!
I love the Anoles in Florida - my family lives down there and I just love when one gets into the house - we carefully trap them and put them back outside.
Last year I was in a petstore and the guy had a huge tank just filled with baby Iguanas. They had to be very young, they were only a few inches long! I felt so bad for them, wondering just how many of them would actually get sold. I was SO tempted!
I'm glad I didn't do it because I knew less last year than I do now!
Just soaking up what I read here has really taught me a lot - not nearly enough though...
Oh well, I'll keep dreaming!
