My husband has decided to join the military in the very near future. We have a 14 month old and I'm 38 weeks pregnant with our second. If he gets stationed abroad, I will not be going with him because I want to finish school and I don't want to leave my mother who helps me with my children. We currently have three cats, some fish and two bearded dragons (that are HIS pets) We got into an argument because he wants me to care for his lizards (and everything else) while he is gone for a year or two, and I asked him to find someone else to care for them (there really isn't) I feel living like a single mom and caring for two small kids, three cats and fish all while going to school is going to be allot of work in itself. Am I wrong for not wanting to deal with cleaning lizard poop and breeding crickets? (picking out the dead every other day, feeding not only the bugs but the lizards too)Answer Question

No, your not wrong. But on the other hand there may be some creative solutions. Advertise in the local paper. Ask a family to "foster" these lizards, explain why briefly, pay for upkeep that you would do anyways if you were maintaining them...and then when he gets back then they can come back from their foster home. Just think outside the box - and hope they don't climb out of theirs. Ug! Not personally a fan. But to each their own.
