I have two hentzi's and they are both very sweet. I have a 2.5 gallon tank for one as she's still small, only about 3 inches. When I went to get my nails done the kids there asked me to bring a spider that they could hold in their hands, so Calamity got to visit with a shop full of people. She took it very well and climbed from one hand to another like a perfect lady. She's great.

I just got my first leopard gecko about a month ago. Before I had an anole, cute but was never tame. Already I can easily hold him and he evens eats and licks calcium powder from a spoon. It's so cute and I absolutely love him. He has the normal colors, but he lost his tail in the pet store so it's growing back different colors. It's hilarious because he licks his lips so much and he plays with his reflection. :) He's a wonderful pet, and I HIGHLY recommend them to any reptile lover.

My Rose hair is 17 yrs old, had her for 3 years and she just had her first molt in my care. She did not flip on her back like I've read. She did seem a bit lethargic and didn't want to eat, so I had thought she might be sick...I did not expect the molt since she did't flip over. She is the most gentle creature I've ever had, very docile and slow. People are always surprised at how big she is.

My name is Laura, and i own an Emporer Red Tail. Her name is Layla and she is 6.5 ft long. My boyfriend and i saved her when we first got together. Her previous owner let her get into a pool table. Her owner also never fed her. We have had her for about a year now, and she is doing well and getting better. Her scar is also fading. Even though she wasn't taken care of before, she is a very sweet and docile snake. She loves to be out and tries to get out of her tank before i can close it. She lets us kiss her on the head and she gives us kisses. She likes to breathe in your ear also. She has so much personality and i would definitely say im glad to have her.

We have a beautiful young royal python named Cleopatra. She didn't eat for the first couple weeks, but she loves to eat for us now. We wash our hands and take her out and play with her every day for about an hour. Every three days or so, we thaw a frozen "fuzzy" mouse for her. We put her back in her container and dangle it in front of her by the tail. We love to watch her gobble mice up.

One of the theories for the name "royal" python is that Cleopatra used to wear ball pythons around her wrist as a bracelet. Of course, we love to do the same thing!

My grandma is 43 years old she and has had her rose hair for 5 months.
Her name is zelda. At first I was scared to hold her, but last night I held her and she was so calm and beautiful. I am anxious to hold her again. Zelda is in premolting stage. My grandma says this is an amazing sight. I hope to see it while I am still here.

My ex-husband was going to send our first turtle into a lake because the turtle became very aggressive, and my ex was questioning why. Well, after some research and talking to some reptile stores, my ex is actually the one to blame, he changed his habitat and put some turtles in with him. I told him that I would take him home with me. His name is Stretchy, so he is about 7 years old, I took all of my fish out of there home of a 55 gal, and gave it to Stretchy. I also, was lucky enough to find a female. I am not sure how old she is, but she is now at about 6 inches in shell. Haven't given here a name yet. She is much darker than Stretchy. This information on this site has really given some more pointers on the habitat they need to be in. I will be making it bigger for them and giving them some sand instead of rocks. I am very happy with them!!!
