Holy fuck do you own a pet shop? While reptiles don't really freak me out I could never do it. I effin hate and I mean hate crickets. Silly I know.
I want to get my girls a chameleon like pasquel on tangled, but they eat crickets so that's not happening.

armadillo alligator lizard close up

baby gopher snake.  another road basker

Horned toad - not a toad at all, its a lizard, he was basking in the road.  

This is a mating pair of kingsnakes.  buggers were in my macaw aviary freaking out the birds.  They were so enamoured with each other, lol, they didn't give a fig that I was picking them up and putting them in a box.

I've worked in petshops, lol

eh I'm not into bugs either but our cricket keeper is COOL.  I never have to touch them!!!

Its feeding the snakes that creep me out.  Fortunately - my 9 yr old daughter has more balls than I do.  But we all agree we cannot feed live mice so we feed re=heated frozen mice....

you know what sucks though?  FEEDING THE CRICKETS.  you have to feed the buggers a good healthy diet so your animals get good healthy food, lol  that freaked my hubby out and kinda pissed him off.

Yeah fk that. I could never. Its not even touching them. It's seeing them, hearing them, everything. I just can't do it.
Snakes are iffy to me but I'd hold a snake over messing with a cricket any day of the week

I really want one of those spotted salamanders going crazy


I had a leopard gecko in High School.  Little baby.  He was pretty cool.  Unfortunately my cat got ahold of him.  I'd like to own one again but DD is only 4 and our last pet (hamster) wasn't a good fit so we're holding off on pets for awhile.
