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?
hmmm that sounds like a good answer. thanks and welcome to hubpages by the way
thanks for the welcome! what a lovely group of people i have found here!
You mean we don't scare you? Dang it! Guys we have to try harder to scare this one just kidding.
I love America. Our pet shops in the UK have rabbits or goldfish... and that's about it!
are you serious? aaa I'm sorry. want me to ship you out something?
I'll stick with the little fluffy things that don't bite back thanks... or food, as your pets would call them!
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
I love snakes, spiders, crocodiles and scorpions. I blame it on being an Aussie! Ya get pretty intimate with them here.
Well then what can I blame it on for liking all of those?
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!
yea all of those eyes staring at you from the spride definitely hides their thoughts too well
earnest no bringing the croc home, okay?
and curioustiy? I don't think I blame it 100% on curiosity..i don't fear then and I find them all very facinating.
aaa but Mikel they aren't creepy..they are interesting and cute
that would be a cute story I might have to write that idea down...hmmmm
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.
got ya thanks Pani! the mystery has been solved. though they shuld change the reptile sign to something like creepy crawly things or something
welcome to hubpages by the way!
Thanks for the welcome
Hope you find your albino corn snake soon. I saw an albino python once. It was gorgeous.
deep breath in for a count of ten
hold for one second
out for a count of ten....
I once ate a scorpion and it was really crispy and quite nice actually...er...just thought I'd throw that in there!
-insert scorpion quote here blah blah-
omgsh that actually gave me chills. try this- imagine chewing on a crispy scorpion. this chill runs right up the back of your neck!

When was the first time you really began thinking about your own mortality?Was it a certain age? A certain life event like the death of a parent or friend? The birth of a child? I'm 45. I had a good friend commit suicide when I was 39. Still, I don't think I really thought about my own mortality...

How do you cope with the thought of your own death?Calling all you 'older' (ahem) writers out there. Do you find yourself becoming a more melancholy person as you get older? Does your mortality begin to hit home? If it does, how do you cope with it and stop yourself becoming just an old misery guts?

This was written on the hub of a writer recently: "I'm in touch with my feelings – maybe a tad too much, seeing as I can write on command about them".Sort of implies that this is not a good thing....Why would this be bad? I really don't think there's any such thing as being in touch...
