    Does anyone own any reptiles? If so, what kind?

    I have three Ball Pythons and a albino Leopard Gecko.
    In the past I had two Iguanas, a Chinese Mountain Dragon, and a 5 foot Red Tail Boa Constrictor.

    I have a Bearded Dragon, I'm getting a Chinese Water Dragon and a Corn Snake soon though.
    what happened to your other pets like the boa and the iggy?
    they live for a pretty long time.
    I would love an Iguana, i just don't have the space. D:

    My ex boyfriend took the boa when we broke up and I kept the Pythons.
    As for my Iguana, I gave him away because he was getting way too big and my mom didn't want to keep a five foot iguana around my brother and sister.
    Bearded Dragons are awesome, I want one so bad.

    I want a albino Burmese python; however mom is against that plus I have two small dogs, two guinea pigs, and two gerbils. Not a good combo. XD
    I also want a bearded dragon but do the amount of animals I have, I'm not allowed. :P

    Albino Burmese Pythons are beautiful, but they can grow up to 27 feet in captivity! My friend had a Burmese and had to give her away because she was too big for him to keep in his parents house. She is now 24 feet long and eats goats.

    The whole 'had to give it away because it got too big' thing really annoys me.
    you should know how big the animal you're buying is going to get. xD
    But then again, atleast he didn't let it suffer in a small vivarium or let it go in the wild which some idiots do so kudos to him!
    Another annoyance are people who buy reptiles for the cool factor without researching and then post on yahoo answers.... 'do i have to feed my snake mice?'
    'i just bought a bearded dragon, what do i feed them?'
    'i purchased an iguana, how big do they get?'
    Anyway on a lighter note, here's my "wishlist"
    Chinese Water Dragon
    Australian Water Dragon
    Crested Gecko
    Bosc Monitor
    Frill-necked Lizard
    Veiled Chameleon
    and a nice female bearded dragon for spyro (when he's older obviously)

    ^that's spyro, (click for bigger picture)

    When it comes to giving away a pet, it is a terrible thing.
    I've given away a reptile because he was too big.
    After my parent's house caught fire, we had to live in a rental house that wasn't big enough to accomidate all six of our tanks.
    I gave Tito the Iguana to a good friend who has other Iguanas, so I knew he was in a good place.

    On a sadder note, I lost my last Leopard Gecko this past week. I got her from a reptile rescue about five years ago.

    Aw, it would be heartbreaking for me.
    D:
    Do you still get to see him? xD
    and aw again at your leopard gecko, D: atleast she had a good home while she was with you.
    my cousin recently rescued a BD, who had full on metabolic bone disease, but he's such a strong little character i love him. his legs and arms are all deformed and he can't walk much but he eats like a horse.
    he was dumped at the reptile shop she goes to, and she just couldn't leave him there.

    I go and visit Tito when I am in the area my friend lives.
    And he still gets his daily bowl of fresh veggies and crickets.

    When I go to my reptile shop, I always want to take home a new critter. But I stop myself, my one bedroom apartment is too small to keep alot of tanks plus a cat.
