How do I put this nicely, any yahoo can set up a web site about anything and claim they are an expert on whatever. Great take your reptile out my kids an i do it all the time ,it's always supervised though, but to leave it while your gone or to not even supervise it, that tells me that your an irresponsible owner, you can justify it to yourself any way you want , but what it boils down to is irresponsibility, how will you feel when it gets into something toxic or breaks a leg ect cuz something heavy falls on it. I don't mean to come down on you so hard but i can't stand ppl taking unnecessary risks with beautiful creatures

If you want it to roam around in an open space, then just take a whole room and modify it to it's needs. I wouln't let my snakes or water dragons roam free in my house, too many things could happen

ok ya i dont have bleach or toxic crap on my carpet before i let her wonder i vacume the carpet and my water dragon will never go under heavy furniture unlike my brothers furniture. And the youngest person in my house is 9. who owns a water dragon also. And as i have said before my houses decoration theme is jungle. its practically a big cage for her. And only one of the 3 of our water dragons we let do this becuase she is calm. She would stay in our fake tree all day long sometimes. yes a i make sure she gets uvb. theres nothing toxic it can get into. and nothing is going to fall on it. I havent been in your houses but mine theres nothing that is going to fall on her.

I only have one herp that goes unattended in the house and that is Iggy, my 19 year old iguana. She hasn't had an indoor cage since she was 3-4 years old. She has her spot in the house where she goes to warm up under her basking lamp when she needs it. She generally only uses about 15% of the house even though she has access to all of it (basement not included in this). She does have a cage outdoors for the summer but that's it.

I wouldn't let ANY snake... no matter how large... roam around unattended. There have been many cases of burms and other large boids making their way up inside couches and whatnot. Unless you want to rip apart whatever they crawled in, your not going to be getting them out. If they are comfy, they are in no hurry whatsoever. I spoke with someone who lost a large burm in their couch for 1.5 weeks Snakes are notorious for squeezing and distorting themselves to get in to places we cannot

i let certain reptiles roam in my reptile room, not together, but i am always there
there's many things that can go wrong, even supervised!! thats why they are called 'accidents'. electrical sockets will be very unforgiving, broken lamps are a fire hazard, most house plants are poisonus and even if you dont have any...if they think its food they will try to eat it and that could be fatal, falling objects, loose of grip and falling....the list can go on and on.

There is a BIG difference between a large, 20 year old iguana that has always had no cage, and a small, young water dragon.

And don't say that there is nothing in your house that could hurt her, because it isn't true! Unless you have NO cleaning products, NO beauty stuff like hair spray, NO first aid kit, NO access to the outdoors, NO shelves or tables that are higher up that 6".

Yup she's been a free-roamer most of her life. I woudln't recommend it with most situations though, and will probably never ever have any other herp that was a free-roamer. She's healthy now, but was an MBD case as a baby LOL I lucked in with my girl... probably one of the more docile igs out there. Most Igs are FAR from calm and quite the opposite and can be quite agressive. One of the many reasons they are "disposable pets"

I realize that no, she probably doesn't. But she can, all it takes is one moment of inattention and your water dragon is in some fatal cleaning product under the sink or in the bathroom.

And like I said, I am SURE there are shelves and tables and desks all over in your house, and it is pretty easy for a WD to fall off of one and hurt themselves which makes them available to predators such as the CATS that you allow to jump on your water dragon, not to mention the hefty vet costs to splint a broken arm or leg or tail.

AND she has access to the outdoors, which opens a whole can of worms, of pesticides, predators, cold, etc etc etc.

Long story short, only let your dragon out in a closed room when you are there to supervise.

I think the closest I come to having something permitted to roam is that I will often take my bigger snakes into the bedroom, lay them on the bed and close the door while I clean their tubs in the other room. The vents in my apartment are all at ceiling level, and about the only thing in the bedroom is the bed. However, as soon as the tub is cleaned, they go right back in. We're talking all of 5-10 minutes.

It's not a good idea to let herps roam, especially with other pets in the house.
