I was reading the comments after getting my Pink Toe Tarantula today. Kind of surprised about the jumping aspect of it - mine hasn't jumped yet when I hold her, and to be honest if it does that might freak me out. I still don't have a name for her, but I am really glad I got her since she makes a great addition to the family and looks fascinating . She doesn't seem to move that much but maybe by morning she might be more active.
Definitely not regretting this purchase.

This spider looks so soft and fuzzy! It makes me want to pet it, and I really don't like spiders at all!

I bought 3 rough green snakes a couple of weeks ago. They were very hard to find and luckily i knew a guy that ordered them from California (I'm in NY). They all have very different personalities. One snake is very calm, larger than the others and fun to handle. She likes to wrap around my fingers and climb my body like a boa. My next snake is very small and squirmy. He is very friendly but defensive when surprised. My last is VERY aggressive. He doesnt let me touch him and hisses at me when I try. When I do, he is very wiggly and hard to handle. Overall, these are very fun and beautiful snakes. The neon green and yellow is gorgeous. I love the fact that they eat crickets instead of mice, too. It's also fascinating how they like to climb opposed to other snakes. These snakes are very fun and pretty but have very diverse personalities. Not recommended for a child because of how unpredictable and fast they could be.

I just got my bearded a few days ago, they told me it was about 2 months old, and this guy is so cool. he just sits on his rock until i take him out, and then he basically roams my room (i keep the door shut because of my dogs). So far, every time i go to put him back, he climbs my arm and sits on my shoulders, almost like he doesnt want to go. He seems to be eating healthy and he's very lively. I'm very glad i got one and im thinking about getting more. :)

I have a male beardie named Daggit. Im not sure how old he is, but he likes to climb my shoulder and in some parts of the day, when he is feeling lonely, he begins scratching the edge of his enclosure wanting me to pet him. He is about to have his first christmas with us. He's my best friend and loves to climb my shoulder. He loves big hoppers. I bought him a huge tank, with orange play sand, a shelter where he can rest, a rock, and a log where he likes to be most of the day. I'm saving money to buy him an artificial log where he can have shade on his colder side on the tank. When he wants to have company, he'll try to climb out of his enclosure to look out the window or to be with people. Well, I hope you enjoyed my comment. I love Daggit and he is the best reptile pet. While I was typing this, I had him on my shoulder. REPTILES RULE!

My brother and I found a softshell in our parking lot after a heavy rain. It was a youngster by the look of him. There was a pond nearby, so we transported it. We put him on the bank and watched it slip into the water. We watched him/her swim gracefully and gradually disappear in the murky water. We named him/her Darwin(a).We don't know where it came from...
