trendy? they arnt a fashion item.
Trendy does not have to be about the fashion world, trendy cars, trendy clubs. Trendy just means trend - things that look good in society. In the reptile society for example - I think cresties are trendy, they look good in our society to a large majority of people.

Sadly, I think some people do think of herps in that way; they seem to be viewed as 'cool' pets in some quarters, with owning them imparting some degree of status to the owner.

I also agree that cresties seem to be 'the' herp to have at the moment.

Trendy or Popular means including easy to keep/looks good/ nice size/price etc.
So I don't think trendy things are Not always bad.
Especially for beginners.

dont follow the trends dude get what is yours and make it unique.


to indulge tho. i dont seem to have seen trends in my short herp experience. igs are being rehomed all the time. i think leo's seem expendable and beardies seem to be keepers always. bosccs and niles IIRC are experienced only.

but still you should set trends not follow them. :2thumb:

I love iguana.
I used to keep some green iguanas as teen.
But they are aggresive sometimes and need large space (wide and height)
I love this vegitarian large lizard, but not for my house.
Now iguana seems re-understanding animals I feel.
Actually they are good for pet lizards.
They look like dinosaur.:2thumb: Cool

As innocent as you try to make "trend" and "reptile" in the same sentence sound; it still does not negate the fact the trends come and go.

The fact that people would own a reptile because it was the trend is wrong. Simple as, no ifs, no buts, no maybes. Trends die; and as a latest "reptile trend" changes what happens to the reptiles? They end up in the rehoming page for others to take care of them. And people rush to get hold of the next trend, without researching them properly...

Don't worry trend followers. Me and all the other rehomers on here will pick up the pieces for you once you move on to your next trend; hoping soon that one day this childish and immature act of reptile keeping, and all other animal for that matter, will end.

Just my two cents... :whistling2:

:lol2: The same thread was made in the snake section. It shows how bitchy the lizard section is. Yusu is just curious as to what Lizards are popular at the moment, what most people seem to be purchasing in our country.

I don't think this is quite what the OP really meant. I think he phrased it incorrectly, I'm sure he just wanted to get a general cencus on the most popular lizard at the moment. For example cresties seem to be getting as popular as beardies and leos.

Well said, the other sections are not as bitchy as this one.
