    Do you like to pet reptiles

    Brother of a friend of mine recently got a lizard as a pet. I was really like freaked out. I havent seen anyone before who would keep a reptile at home as pet.  So do you or anyone you know keep reptiles as pets and do you like it if someone does?

    I keep four terrapins (known as turtles in America) I've had them for 25 years, so they're not a short term pet. I enjoy them, they seem to quite like having the underside of their shells stroked when I take them out of the aquarium to check their health and they seem to recognise me as well. Pictured is Enormous - my biggest terrapin and Gyp who was the first terrapin I got.

    I am fascinated with reptiles, I have a 7 ft Burmese Python that I've had for 8 years.

      Wow, Im surprised your Burmese is only 7 feet at 8 years? What kind of enclosure do you keep your scaley baby in?

    Yes. I love my snakes smile Some are mean, some are nice, but I pet them all the same.

      Love your rainbow!!! I have been an avid herpatologist for most of my life. I used to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt herps (amphibians/reptiles) for many years. Now I do wildlife rehab, but may start doing some herp rescue again.
