To the lawyer who said "they make people sick" this is the ignorance I am talking about. Uninformed comments like that just spread hysteria to more uninformed people and on it goes. I know lots of herp owners, two breeders and lots of pet store staff and have yet to hear of anyone getting sick from reptiles. Personally, I feel that people are more likely to get sick from just being out in public, using public washrooms, handling money etc. than from any reptile., since most reptile health problems strictly affect reptiles. Hmmm. that gives me an idea for a new post:-)
