Reptile keepers are BOLD, extraordinary, and hold a wealth of knowledge! There are many things that make each one of us unique in the reptile community, but there are also a couple of things that we have in common as well! Without fail, we all get asked the same questions over and over!

We have compiled the reptile keeping communitys' answers to the FUNNIEST and most common questions we get asked as keepers! 


1. How are your little Komodo Dragons/Iguana's doing? 

 .... is that even legal? 😳 


2. So you keep bugs... in your house?? 

 "Why yes, yes i do..." 


3. OH H#$% NO! I do not do lizards of any kind! 

 "Um.... I guess i'll just suck on this lemon" 


4. "WOW! So do they like camoflauge to your walls and stuff??"
