    Okay so after I read a cool hub by Sara about snake and mites, it got me thinking. I was thinking about how my husband and I want a baby albino corn snake some day in our lives. And then it got me thinking about pets stores.

    So here is my question: Why do pet stores put the trantulas and the scorpions with the reptiles when they are obviously not reptiles? I mean is it a space thing or something?

      good question, possibly due to the thought that people who are into reptiles would like other critters such as the trantulas and scorpions...but I do not really know.
      I can find out though, my daughter has a friend she goes to school with who works at a Pet Supply Plus

      i think they do that to group "exotic" pets all together maybe.

      hey this would be a good idea for your story. one night they all break out of their cages and wreak havoc in the pet store big_smile

        Crazdwriterposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        hmmm that would be a fun story, not a horror story maybe a teen/kid book where every night the animals break out and party it up lol then every morning they are back in the cages.

    I love snakes, spiders, crocodiles and scorpions. I blame it on being an Aussie! lol Ya get pretty intimate with them here. smile

      Crazdwriterposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Well then what can I blame it on for liking all of those? lol

        earnestshubposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        At a guess, I would say curiosity? Spiders have romantic dances and follow a lot of other human like traits! Totally interestin critters! I have had a chat with a large croc in the wild, and he was interesting too!
        Spiders look at you with those amazing eyes, yet it is hard to know what they are thinking. The croc on the other hand had some trouble hiding the fact that I would look stunning with a good sauce and maybe between two pieces of bread!
        Ya gotta love crocs. So honest and innocent! lol

          Crazdwriterposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          lol yea all of those eyes staring at you from the spride definitely hides their thoughts too well

          earnest no bringing the croc home, okay? big_smile


          and curioustiy? I don't think I blame it 100% on curiosity..i don't fear then and I find them all very facinating. smile

    When I worked at a pet store, we put the birds, reptiles, small rodents, and insects all in one section of the store. This was because most needed to live in about the same temperature and it was easier to keep them all in one area.
