just a quick update. Went to the reptile centre with the wife and kids today and they enjoyed looking at all of the animals. They all held a baby corn and a baby beardie without any issues and i held an adult beardie called Ted. Could have bought all of them right there and then, so cute. Now the difficult process of thinking which one to buy.
i've had all the normal pets (cats, dogs, hamsters, gerbils, etc). I'm looking at the more exotic pets. I've taken on the kids Giant Land Snails and i'm looking for some other pets.
