They are awesome, and if I didn't have kids I'd probably have one!
Dh's cousin had 2. One was a baby (won it at the fair), and the other was 14 years old...that sucker was HUGE and could slap the hell outta you with his tale. He was just playing, other than that he was very docile.
No i wont let DH get one now that we are married I dont like them at all. But DH used to raise them and give them to zoos growing up and when we dated. They are so huge and they whip people with their tails and i know other people find it neat you can train them to piss and shit in your tub when your not home but thats not cool with me. (apparently lizards dont do kitty litter) I also find it freaky for some reason to hear something at the front door, open it and think ding dong ditch? NO NASTY LIZZARD SCRITCHIN ACROSS MY BARE FEET WITH HIS TALONS PUSHING PAST ME TO COME In! I know the thing is out there but they get me every damn time! it would be different if you could cage them like a gecko, of if they provided warm drinks and danishes like the gico lizard. I'd be more accepting then. But they are so angry and bitter looking and just whip the shit out you with their tail for just walking past or anything they want! Lastly, not sure if its true but someone said they can make your kids sick??
Those probably weren't very encouraging words now that I think about it but I was just arguing with DH over these things. The rant is fresh. Good luck with that non-extinct prehistoric creature you got running around. If dh were awake hed ask for pics.
