    They are cute! I've always been a reptile fan...had a lovely ball python before I moved to California. Her name was Butch.

    Thanks Al and Jason and Bruce! They keep me amused! Well up to a point anyway! They are a great pet Bruce but the levels of cruelty, ignorance and rejection equally measures the extent at which dogs and cats suffer and Charities struggle with the demand consistently. Even I have been put in a position whereby I nearly had to give them up like Atlanta has recently endured with his orchid collection. That was an unpleasant time but worth every effort. These are cool and cute, similar to kittens and puppies being cute for other people.

    If ever i left them unsupervised during their run about the house my orchids would be shredded to pieces with their claws.Thats not going to happen.
    Pavel, i clocked your picture when you changed it recently and knew that another reptile fan was on the forum. 'Buggers' is certainly apt at times.

    If it makes you feel better Cathy, the chicks were pre frozen. I would not be able to view a live bird/ mammal being eaten alive!Insects ok. Its bad enough at times cleaning down the bloodbath and removing the odd spare flesh and guts dangling from their jaws. Did learn though that mice have unusally large kidneys for a small mammal. lol.

    Pre frozen is good, Matt. I had visions of wally and penelope stalking a little fuzzy yellow peeper all over the house.

    Not heard the term 'peeper for a chick before Cathy. That fluffy little peeper waddling around would almost certainly become adopted by me and would hope it didnt turn into a boustrous rooster, i think the neighbours would complain. Will stick to ducks i think, their waddle is more cute!.

    It must be avatar pic change time on here, I see you went for a rose pink vanda. You like vandas then????? haha.

    Yes, among other critters. Before her untimely demise at the young age of only 8yrs old, my leopard gecko, Peanut, made many an appearance on the forum. *sigh* I miss her still.

    Baby chicks are the sweetest things as well as baby ducks.

    I do think they make wonderful pets Pavel. After a dose of good nurturing they become a close member of the family and develop their own persnalities just as dogs, parrots and cats do. Using the term 'personalities' recieves very blank looks and synical feedback sometimes but I will stick to my experience and observation.

    Actually never had any of the gecko clan in my care but have been close to considering the madagascan g's, with the lime green colouring and red spots. At times I have overwhelmed/ overcommitted myself with the time taken to deliver care, ranging from dartfrogs and golden Mantellas, tarantulas and lizards and also four or five operational aquariums with a mix of community and specific species. Am just sticking to the 3 dragons now since my orchid hobby was launched into a full scale interest and even that literally takes/ demands time from me when i should really be sleeping! lol
