      There are (almost) no snakes in the wild in Hawaii except for the tiny Island Blind Snake.

      There have been a few Brown tree snakes found, but they're non-native.

      The state gov't works hard to keep snakes out because the birds there have no natural defenses against them.

      Is your female producing fertile eggs?

      It's not uncommon for females to lay infertile eggs even when not having been introduced to a female.

    Bearded dragons wave one hand as a sign of submission.
    Not technically a reptile but pink-toe tarantulas are hatched having black toes and pink bodies.

      But we dislike the sour taste of conservatives.  It takes a tumblebug to eat one of those! Hey Sneako!
