    Hi Clive, how long did you have your wds for or at what age did they live too. have noted that the wds are certainly not as popular as the beardies although this is highly likely due to the size and space required tank wise!

    Will never be able to experience snakes as a exotic pet as they more relate to my biggest fear. One member in Phillipines described his experience of having to shoot cobras as they entered his kitchen. It was at this point I experienced what a stroke would be like. Nah just kidding about the stroke, more a heart flutter. Our forum chief BD endures them falling out of cattleya pots in his greenhouse!. I wonder if anyone has thought of snake pellets to act like our slug pellets, could be a niche in the market!!!!!!dont think they will dissolve in salt though???hmmm.

    I guessed you noticed by now that 99% of my threads/ posts dont half waffle on and on and on....................and on................................................ ...........................and on. I agree, dont they just.

    I've never kept water dragons, a question of space more than anything. Yours look very well Matt. Like Pavel, I kept Leopard Geckoes for quite a while. Fathead (my old male) was 21 when he passed on a few years ago. Now I only have an equally ancient Golden Gecko and a couple of small snakes. Oh and a pair of three toed box turtles.....and a parrot, and an aquarium, and two dogs. Now you see why space is at a premium!

    Thanks for your feedback Patty, Steve and Clive.
    Quite a collection Steve, i can certainly see why space is an issue. The worst most ignorant reason Ive ever heard Clive for purchasing a reptile/ lizard and soon giving up was ' its the closest thing to a dinosaur I can get.' They should have tuned into the channel and programme that Patty is watching.

    Bravo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to you Clive for those efforts and lengths you went to inorder to save the ones you did. Must be an extremely difficult job, both mentally and physically draining.

    Thanks matt...yes it was very upsetting as many of my friends would let me know if a animal was going to be put down or living in horrible situations...My last dog i saved was from a home that the people were drunks and abused this black belgium shephard dog like beating it and putting their fags out on it...When i got to it i found they had moved and the poor dog was tired to a garden fence hanging and dying slowly...i saved it and he recovered and lived a wonderful life with me..but every time we walked near a pub he would be to frightened to go near it.....ive seen much of cruelty and every time it brings me to tears just seeing what human beings can do to innocent animals.Im so sorry for going of the topic..which is orchids remember when i was little i would save hedgehogs from kids playing football with them...their one of my fav british animals
