My husband just tolerates the snakes, but he enjoys the lizards. My kids think thay are all "cool". My mother and siblings aren't too grossed out by my reptiles, but they aren't thrilled w/them either. I have a two year old neice who immediately asks for Bubba (my blue tongued skink) everytime she comes over! She doesn't like snakes, tho.

He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."-Unknown
