Hee hee! This time two years ago I hadn't even considered a reptilian pet... a friend of mine at work said 'you should see this neat little lizard over at the petstore' and I did and bought it (she never told me that she was going to buy it. This started a running joke that whatever she liked I was going to buy :P), but then fell in love with the little guy... (he's a holaspis guentheri) and almost got some beardies... but got a leo instead, and haven't regretted it! Now I'm in the final phase of thegottahaveits... snakes! I'm incureable now! And I LOVE it!!
