OH You know, you're right I think, I was confused. I was watching a show about caimans, my bad! I know you at least need a lot of permits if you want one(WHICH IS GOOD!) He wants an american alligator. You need a permit for this one too, but whatever, I DON'T think we are getting one, ever. His dream animal, but you know, we live next to a nice zoo! Don't get me wrong, he's smart and has had plenty more experience with reptiles than I, and he knows the amount of land, time, effort, money, and safety precautions..And he would wait until we are much older and more stable. But I still don't like the idea!! He is starting to like the idea of a Tegu more anyway, which makes me happier. As much as I appreciate gators and crocs, it's more at a distance that I like them :)
Anyway, this thread is about the koi.. Still skittish, and I have a feeling I won't see much improvement by the time I leave to go back to college!
