Woah o.o That sounds scary, and you're probably right!:D Just makes me think how many snakes are out there... I'm not a particular fan of snakes that look like they can eat me xD Still to this day snake keepers are realizing how big this snake gets, and releasing them. It happens with all kinds of pets; fish, turtles, birds even..

One 70.G Cichlid Tank-2 Parrotfish, 1 Red Bay Snook, 1 Jack Dempsy, 2 Mayan Cichlids, and 1 Spotted Catfish
1.5 Gallon tank with male butterfly halfmoon-Charlie and 1 mystery snail
10 Gallon tank with female veiltale- Lulu and 2 Mystery Snails
3.5 Nano Saltwater Tank with yellow goby-Buttercup, 3 red leg cortez crabs, 2 nassarius snails, 3 hidden cup corals
One misfit jack russel-rat terrier mix-Ginger

Believe I saw the same show, they said thousands of non-native reptile got loose, now they are all over the place. Also people dont realize that Iguanas get to be 4-5 feet long and can get very aggressive in their adult lives so they just release them. irresponsible.

Hanky I know someone that got bit by a juvie they had always interacted with and he bit her on the lip, she had to get stitches.

The person with the 5 foot iguana is always playing with him, the funny thing is she is pretty small and has this huge lizard. Her husband also has one of those desert tortoises that lives over 100 years and gets massive!

Thumbs up to the desert tortoise I'd love one of them but I have this thing about being outlived by my pets, haha, you have to account for them in your will.
