Snakes are cute and cuddly. Ever think of getting a snake as a pet? Might
take care of the rat problems :-) When your friends ask what happened to
their rats, you could point to your fat and happy snake curled up in the
corner of its cage.
I had a pet snake which I used to hand feed fish. Watching it gulp fish out
of a glass bowl was even cooler, triggering its hunting insticts. Watching
it eat frogs was really cool. Amazing how those things can stretch their
jaws out to engulf something which looks impossibly large.
Geckos are cool, cute pets too, especially when they make their cute little
squeaky noises. The species which is asexual is fascinating. Yes asexual
(parthenogenic) reptiles exist.
I don't think I could keep a scorpion as a pet. Tarantulas are kinda neat
looking, but not my cup of tea. I don't know if I'd keep any more reptiles,
due to salmonella paranoia.
