xD. I'll try getting my dad to persuade.

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.

I voted for Beardie, but I love reptiles. They are read to interact with and can be held if tame. Waiting till I move out to get a couple lizards myself, but will deff be getting one.

I work with all three of those(parrot, pigeon and bearded) at my job on a weekly basis and I would go for the Bearded Dragon.. mostly because the up keep is easier.. I love pigeons but they sure make a mess! we have amazon parrots and if they do not like you they will certainly show you.. (have the scars to prove) one of them has an intense hatred of me and will go out of his way to attack me if hes able to.. we have a bearded dragon who's pretty awesome.. very chill and will hang on your t-shirt in you place him there... very expressive eyes too!

Is it okay if I ask where you got him? I'm trying to get one from a woman who's offering everything for 75-- got price reduced to 60 (because it said OBO).

I work at a nature center as one of their rehabbers.. we usually do not take in "exotics" 99% is native Florida wildlife.. but we do something make exceptions for abandoned pets that would be beneficial on educating people about them so they become our animal ambassadors.. he's been there longer than I have so I was told he was an abandoned pet.. 2 of our amazons were left in a house with no food... also have a bunny that was left in a house too.. people can be so cruel..

While fun, beardies get extremely lazy and boring and usually start being picky with food. They would be cheaper, but after a while they literally do nothing but bask. For long term a bird would be much more fun.

I'm talking from my experience and others experience, so it almost always happens :( so sad because they are cool animals.
