i'm lucky in that way. it was my wife who started us down this path of madness. she fell in love with a uromastyx (who has passed since
) and less than 6 months later we have 6 lizards and 2 snakes... and always drooling over more! she scolded me before the last show we went to saying 'WE'RE NOT BUYING ANYTHING'. that lasted until she got her hands on her albino sonoran gopher... and then the 'cute little' leopard. the only bad thing is that we are really bad for enabling each other.
