This little guy is the most interesting small animal I've ever had. I have crested geckos as my main small animals to breed. And I got the frog on the side because he was so cute I HAD to buy him. Now after having him for over a year he has gotten to the point where I hand feed him. He is now too lazy to hunt the cricket. I shouldn't have even started doing that. As soon as it gets dark. He comes out of his driftwood home and climbs up and sits there and follows me with his eyes and head. He waits for my hand to feed him. Sometimes when I come up to his cage he jumps towards me only to smash himself on the glass with his mouth open and tongue out...kinda reminds me of those animals or creatures you hang up with suction cups on your car window. If I stick my hand in there to get the water bowl he will attack one of my fingers and starts trying to swallow my finger. Lately he's been so berzerk about getting a cricket he keeps rushing way before I actually get my hand in his aquarium and I'm so afraid he's going to hurt himself. So this little guy is so cool with me he will actually chomp on a cricket in my hand. So crazy! I'm trying to find on the web if this is normal behavior but haven't found anything yet.

they are a great pet and are very cute, but they are delicate.

hello, i live in washington state and i have a ornate box turtle named zoey. i got her a few years back along with 4 others. i was not educated very well on diseases and such things and when the others caught boot fly, i didn't know wat the heck to do. for 2 years i thought they were all dead until one summer i found her baskng in her out door pen. she is very hardy but eats almost nothing but meat(night crallers in particular)and occasionlly a blackberry or two. they are truly wonderful turtles, but make sure it has a large enough pen(28 sq feet minimum).

I live in the interior of British Columbia, Canada and I believe that I am the only person in my town to own a "Rosie". Her name is Hairy Jane, and she has become a family pet now and I am very attached. Last week it completed it molted for the first time in my home. We all thought she was dead, I had picked her up and studied what I thought was a dead spider. luckily I returned her to her home in the same position I had found her. That night I was happy to see that she had only been in the middle of her molting period. It was kinda freaky, but I am happy she is alive!

I am an eleven year old kid and I first obtained my pink toe tarantula at the age of five. The owner before me had the spider for about 5 years so I had a pretty old tarantula. unfortunately she died last month but I am looking to purchase another pink toe, they make great pets. My mom even had fun with sharpie (my spider's name) I have a breeding couple of cornsnakes, 4 baby snakes, and a chilean rose hair tarantula that were all inspired by sharpie. I'd say if your gonna get a pet, pink toe is the way to go!

My husband and I enjoy Bruce Lee at night. He climbs on my husbands shoulder like a cat. He has an awesome personality and has a better pad then we do.

I got a baby corn snake for my 13th birthday. She (I think it's a girl, at least) was less than a 12 inches when I got her. Now it's about a half a year later and she's about 20+ inches long. She sheds prety predictably once every month. I give her a large pinky mouse once every five days. She's doing fine, not too fat or skinny. she loves to climb all over my hands and arms and explore everywhere. this is my first snake, so I'm a complete beginner and she's really easy to care for. I also want to get gekos and a ball python, but not yet. For my cage setup I have a water bowl and a half of a small log I got from the pet store on the cool end. On the warm end I have a little log I also got from the pet store. I also have a branch that I found outside and cut to fit the cage. I soaked it in bleach water to kill all of the bacteria and bugs. She loves to climb on it. I use aspen bedding. When I feed her, I put her in a little brown bag that the pet store gave me when I buy mice for her to eat. That way she knows that she shouldn't bite anything unless it's in the bag, and she won't accidentaly swallow any bedding, which she never has.

We have a huge iguana called 'Bob'. He has lived with us for 14 years, from being of a size that fitted into a small plastic tub. He has had many homes, including a shed in my dining room (!) to his present home, the whole end of my dining room. Whilst being a softie at times (with my husband, who is able to judge his moods and knows when to stay away / put his hand in and stroke the top of his head). For myself, I tend to keep away, as Bob knows when my hormones are on the go and reacts more aggressively.
Bob tends to eat Brocoli, cat biscuits, oranges, grapes. In the past he's eaten sausages (watch those fingers!) and a finch (which we thought would be safe in there! Big mistake! Lasted three days, kept landing on Bob, he learned the flight path and one swallow later....
He is cute though- he likes you to blow through the gaps of his home onto his face, bob your head, and talk to him.
