My dad is very interested in reptiles (I got the addiction from him) but doesn't have to own them. My mother finds them terrible. Therefore I wasn't allowed to own them when I lived at home. My husband first didn't want them, he agreed with lizards but snakes wouldn't enter the house! Well at this time 2 snakes did enter the house and he loves them. He starting to get more interested by the day so thats good news.
The rest of the family is okay with it.
