Please view this post of mine: Will Lizard Companionship Be A Joyous Happening In Your Home?
It is so important to research how large a prospective pet may grow! When you see that cute little baby lizard at a reptile show or the pet store and want to rescue and love him or her, know what you’re getting into for the next however many years. Some may think: “That lizard is so tiny and cute, it can’t get that big, I’ll deal with whatever!”
Well, those thinkers may be in for a surprise! This video is one example of the gentle giant for whom they may be responsible.:
Remember, animals are our family. They need us too, so don’t abandon them or risk their getting adopted into cruel living conditions without love and liberty.
I know of people who have released their snakes and other reptiles outside where they will slowly die come the winter because of one reason or another. That is craziness to me! It is evil, selfish, and it is sad! It is bad for the area wherein they are not native, for reasons that elaborating upon are another story, so to speak. It is cruel and confusing for the animal to be dumped, hungry, and left all alone after experiencing companionship. Just wrong, wrong, and wrong!
Folks that have adopted animals from other homes may easily recognize the emotional trauma caused to the animal simply from switching homes and the absence of the humans they once knew. People should be committed to their choices in animal-keeping, rather than deciding their care is too much and tossing them out of their lives like an old shirt!
