you could ask the same thing about hamsters! or stamps or fish or cats, dogs, horses, sheep, rats, GIANT SQUID!!
but these are my reasons.
1: theyre beautiful! they come in lots of colours patterns, shapes, sizes, with legs, without legs,
2: theyre unusual, exotic, interesting. i wanted a break from the norm eg, hamsters,cats.
3: easy to care for (most of the time) they dont need to go out for walks, they dont get muddy pawprints all over the house! they dont make much noise/no noise at all!
4: theres a huge variety out there each with theyre own specific needs, so i guess its a challenge.
5....................addictive

They are beautiful, graceful, strong yet sometimes delicate, sweet or not so sweet, and for the not so faint at heart, there are the hots, which BW loves. Many reasons, but mstly for the love and appreciation of these gorgeous animals.

They keep my family out of my room, hehe

Also they scare my devil cat, this cat attacked a male doberman last summer because the dog tried to eat his food, but hes affraid of a 6 month old corn...

But really, I keep snakes because I enjoy them, I enjoy showing them off, the same way I can show off my dog's stupid tricks. I like caring for stuff, and teaching people things they may not know about them

I find them facinating, and very primal. Snakes are very graceful.

And I agree with paul on the insects.

Why do I keep reptiles?

Why...thats an EASY question to answer...

BECAUSE EVERYONE SEEMS TO HATE THEM!!
(Which makes me love them all the more)



I figure if everyone HATES it it must be good.



Works for me

To start with I was allergic to just about everything with fur except for dogs and my apartment didn't allow dogs. Before I moved in my boss sent out an email saying he has a Leopard Gecko to give away. I had been thinking about getting some sort of lizard so I looked for some websites on their care and said "Yes I want it". Hook line and sinker, I've been fascinated ever since.

A radio topic last week was about pets. The host labelled dogs and cats as "real pets", rodents as "so-so pets", fish as "useless pets", and reptiles "for insecure people who crave attention".

Heheheh ^^
I like reptiles because they're differnt - they're (like everyone has been saying) graceful, gorgeous, and just plain cool. Not to mention it's another thing for my father and I to disagree on... hehehe
