The simple fact that the neighbours might freak out keeps me from taking my herps onto the open lawn. When I do take them out, it's mostly on the secluded part of the deck where noone else can see.
Like Roy said, non-herp keepers just don't understand and I'd really hate to have my pets taken away from me. I've had my Ball Python called a Cobra and my Bearded Dragon called an Iguana.
