do you let you reptiles....

Read all thanx. hi do you let you reptiles wonder your house while you gone? Do you just set em on the floor sometimes and dont worry about em i do all the time well you can do this with the right kind of reptile mine is a chinese water dragon i can only do it with one of them though the other one will go under heavy furniture

one time my water dragon had no cage for 4 days she just wonderd around for 4 days she was fed and had drinks though and went outside for uvb but she had the time of her life.

wonders around in the moring goes in our huge fake tree playin there for half a day does some other random stuff and then climbs up ther curtains gets on a poll and sleeps

Ummm sure, when I want to lose them???? I wouldn't mind with something big......like a calm iguana, or a larger tortoise....but something smaller..........i don't think so.

Yea the only snake i would let roam around my house would be atleast a 12' snake like a burm or retic something that size would be fine but would keep it in my room so he/she would minimize the damage it does if it were to go on a shelf with glass.

Besides the fact that my cats would be gone in a few minutes, NO!! I never let my reptiles run the house. There are just too many things that could happen. They can knock things over and if they are small enough they get lost.

lol the cat problem my cat is freindly to my lizard my lizard hates her though. Im trying to teach my lizard to like her. Have you ever seen an angry water dragon or an angry aiguana they look the same they puff up to beefen up there size start shaking becuase there flexing there musstles open there mouth get there tail ready for whipping lol so my big cat is scared of a 18 inch lizard. But they stay out of each others way.

Ya you cant really do this with to much snakes with a lot of lizards its ok

LOL J-man, I was thinking the same thing, but thats besides the point. I wouldnt let my snakes wander around the house unless under close supervision, and i would much rather heat a large box over a large room.

I would never let my herps roam around the house unless I was right there with them, ESPECIALLY not when I'm not at home.

And I would never, ever let them go outside!!!! A 10 foot snake, maybe, but NOT a 1.5' water dragon. You are lucky she came back, but I wouldn't risk it again. If you don't have a cage, don't have herps.

I let my boa and adult carpets roam around outside sometimes, but I am always right there in case they decide to take off.

Also, you can't make a lizard like a cat. Lizards don't work that way. You might get her to tolerate the cat eventually, and stress her out in the process. I would, however, advise you not to put your cat and water dragon together. Your cat may not seem to mind the water dragon for the moment, but who knows when your cat's instincts will kick in.

Ya i have gaven up on the cat thing i have tried to get em to tolerate eachother and usually when they see eachother they run from eachother and do you know much about water dragons my water dragon can live in my house practically many lizard owners do this. Some snake owners. And i have a cage it was a 4 day preiod i wouldnt give my water dragon up becuase fo a four day thing and about the cats instincts my cat when she was smaller would bounce on him and try to attack him. But she has been taught and trust my water dragon is safe and can wonder around my house she is right now she is in the kitchen i believe not 2 sanitary lol but water dragons bathe them selves a lot.

You see my houses decoration them is jungle fake plants everywhere so my water dragon loves it.

You can do this with iguanas also my neighbors do.

I let my one Burm go around my house when i am with her but not to many of my other large snake do that. To leave them out when you are not there is not to SMART. They could get into something that could harm them or even kill them. I have Water Dragons and i know that they lick and taste everything so you might want to think about that.

There is so many things around the house that would not be good for your water dragon to get into.
