xD "Must Love Snakes". I'm not afraid of mice, rats, snakes, any lizards (except iguanas because I don't trust them there miniature crocodiles).

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Haha iguanas get big. Monitors can be scary but still dont bother me. i dont like bugs. I can do every reptile amphibian but not insects especially arachnids. I bred dubia for my beardie and when they touched me id scream. I became very good at using hemostats to feed lol I spilled an order of 2, 000 crickets in my house once....it was my worst nightmare. Woke up with one on my face and screamed. Im such a baby. Give me a reptile of any size any day and id fare better lol

Gah... Crickets are nasty little buggers. And if they get out, you can never tell where they're hiding by the noises they make - drives me batty. My friends like to make fun of me because I have no problem handling snakes or other reptiles of nearly any size (given certain safety guidelines are met - no way I'm going to work with a large and/or venomous snake without proper precautions) but I still need to call someone over to remove a spider.

I do enjoy nice, well socialized iguanas who have owners that put forth the amount of care they need, but they're unfortunately a bit difficult to come by -.-

It's funnier in Enochian.

Healthy igauanas in general are hard to come by. Lol most people have NO idea what they are getting into (just like with boas). I dont handle hots. No desire too. But the bush vipers are pretty. From a Distance lol im right therr with ya....give me a burm or retic over a spider any day I also get made fun of for that lol

My roomie's was a rescue. So weak... So small for her age... Once she got her health back though she was a rightful brute. We made riot shields to stay safe if and when she got out. We had to lock her cage since she was strong enough to open it -.-; We had to clean her mouth of mouth rot, and that was no fun. luckily for him I knew natural and safe remedies to ease her poor mouth.
