I can not STAND people that don’t take owning reptiles seriously.
You can’t just buy them a house, give them water, turn off their lamps, and call it a day. They take so much more care than that.
I am talking about people who get monitors, beardies, snakes, & stuff like that. Getting a little turtle is not that much work. My stepdad and mom raise Poison Dart Frogs (which btw are not poisnous in captivity) and people want to buy them for their kids ALL the time. They won’t sell to people like that. Frogs are a lot of fucking work. Keep up with their vivs, cultures, and news flash YOU CAN’T HOLD FROGS. They aren’t dogs.
Someone posted earlier a picture of their monitor. They live in apartment. Yes, right now the monitor isn’t that big but do you know how big monitors get??? Have you seen a full grow black throat monitor, or even a savannah monitor, in person? They are HUGE. People who own them literally have to create dog runs for them. You can’t keep those things in a cage!
Don’t even get me started on snakes.
Please people… reptiles are not like fish. They need to be properly taken care of. Don’t be an uneducated ass hole.
I like this but your ‘Reptiles Are Not Like Fish. They need to be properly taken care of’ is bullshit.
All animals need to be taken care of properly. It does not matter what it is. If you throw a pair of goldfish into a bowl or really anything less them 35-150 gallons you are an asshole and don’t deserve that animal.
THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT
