I dont like my pet so much after he nearly attempted to kill me >=[. I tried to touch him and he keeps running or biting me so i wore rubber dishwasher gloves and he bit right through them and through my fingernail. it took 2 months for my fingernail to grow back because i had to remove it due to severe penetration and infection. he is a mad spider, he has bit me like 4 times now and left 1 fully permanent scar from accidently "hooking" its fang to my top of hand and ripped the skin. it never shot hairs at me though. it also ran away and scared my sister like crazy because it went on her bed. dont touch the spider or put him on your hand because he once went on my hand and would never get off. if you push him off, he'll bite you and go back on. and he puts webs all over your hand and if you try to pull the web out he'll bite you and run up your arm.

We lost our beloved female beardy "Bernice" May 26th. We are extremely depressed about our loss. She had such a great personality. We only had her for 4 months. We bought her we thought from a reputible place. She seemed healthy but she was fat. We introduced her to her mate and they hit it off of course. Bernie is going to be a dad, but three weeks after she layed her 30 eggs so perfectly and then we did our part, she seemed fine. Just all of a sudden she was listless and we couldn't wake her up Saturday and she would stop beathing off and on. The vet x-rayed her and showed us the three eggs left in her but were moved down, there were broken eggs -- we have no clue how she had broken eggs with a MASSIVE infection all over her lower belly. She got worse by the hour and all we did was cry and asked the vet to help her. She didn't even have a 50% of making it thru the night let alone surgery. We took her home and she died an hour later on my husband's neck. It was like losing part of our family. I am mad because I think she had already layed a clutch and this was left, then she was pregnant by our Bernie and layed her eggs and she very slowly got sick. We are getting her "taxidermied" -- might sound stupid but we want her with us. We miss her sooooooooooo much. And Bernie is depressed now without her and we can't find another female. She will get fixed because we don't want to go thru this pain again.

I've only had my geco (Bumps) for 3 days but he seems pretty cool and I enjoy having him. He hasn't shed yet but i hope he will soon. He eventually will be a breeder. For anyone who loves lizards or reptiles in general I recommend Leopard Geckos for you!

I just got my first Pink toe a few weeks ago. Infact she's technically my first tarantula. I've worked with them before and have taken care of other peoples tarantulas, but she's MY first. I couldn't be happier. I love my new friend Beaarthurmew (the name is a looooong story). She's still quite small so she's set up in a five gallon for now. She's made an awesome web in her live angel plant that seems to get bigger and bigger everyday. The only thing that I'm a little concerned about is I'm not sure if she's eating the crickets I put in her tank. I've never seen her even touch the bottom of the tank where the crickets are and I dont know if the crickets are making there way up the plant. I'm sure she's ok and I'm just being a paranoid "new mom" she looks fat and happy. I'm still gonna experiment with different live food and see if she likes something better.

I bought a Scorpion in TX about 6 months ago. I managed to get her all the way back to WI. Everyone that hears the word "Scorpion" is amazed to hear I have one and they take immediate interest. My girlfriend's mother said she hated anything with 8 legs, but fell in love with it and my GF wants one too! If you ever thought about getting one DO IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

My iguana (Lewis Michealangilo Kiniski) loves it when I talk to him! I will feed him then talk to him for about an hour! He loves it! Also he loves when I pet his head and neck!

We have two Testudo Graeca (male & female) and keep them in an outside enclosure (we live in a desert climate). The male one is much smaller than the female, and is extremely shy. Whereas the female enjoys our company. I love that they will be my childrens' "lifelong pets"! We're all very happy with them!
