    I don't currently have any reptiles.. I do have an amphibian that has been with me for more than 12 years. He is a Black Rubber Eel or Caecilian worm. Amazing creatures but ever so hard to get.

    For favorite reptiles, I had a ball python that was amazing, I got a crested gecko for my son and we kept a few anoles in a terrarium. I also love bearded dragons, blue tongue skinks and chameleons.

    Awesome!!
    Those eels are crazy looking. They seem so exotic and hard to find like you said. I've never seen them before until I heard you had one. And blue tongues are amazing. But I love all reptiles. :p

    Do u have any pictures of your tortoise?? How big is he?

    I don't have any but would love a bearded dragon. Especially with a unique coloring/pattern. Also wanted to try a california desert phase king snake, but the wife would divorce me if I bring a snake in the house...it's going to take me years just to convince her to get an eel.

    I don't think I'd ever get one, but I am fascinated with tegus and green tree pythons. I will also own a turtle pond when I get a house and a yard!

    Yea bearded dragons are great. And now they have so many different colors to choose from. Kind snakes are probably one of the easiest snakes to take care of, they are happy with anything, I love them. I also can't have any snakes around because my boyfriend would kill me haha but good thing I'm more of a lizard person ;)

    Tegus!! Omg love them. I would love to have one eventually. They seem like great pets.

    I see them as mini-kamoto dragons. They can be scary.

    Ok update, I changed her water this morning, and first I tried to pet her and she didn't let me. She hissed a lot and whipped me twice with her tail haha I guess shes not a morning lizard :p she still smelt my hand tho again so seemed alittle interested.
    Well she moved out of her water, and I was able to take it out and change it (because she made a mess of it, and they like to poo in their water) and she just stared at me while I was refilling it flicking her tongue, but as soon as I pit my hand out she turned the other way. Lol she was totally pouting, and upset she couldn't be in her water. Lol

    I just think the key is going to be hand feed her treats.
    We will see this weekend.

    I've always loved turtles. My ornate box turtle "Gus" has been with me since June of '94 - over 20 years now! (Have to see if I have any pics).
