[QUOTE=lunarwalrus;30255476]The OP gave me a good read so I'll share some advice. Never buy snails for a fish tank, my friend was like "Oh they'll clean the tank for me". Two weeks later there were like 50 of them in there. I think he sold them though, so lodsamonie.[/QUOTE] They're really annoying, like little snots all over the place. I murdered them.

There are some large ornamental snails that people buy and breed and they do a good job cleaning. Then you have those little ones that reproduce all the fucking time and are a pain in the ass to get rid of. I buy the big ones and they never get out of hand.
I want a snake but I don't really have the space and I know that my folks wouldn't be happy with a ball python in the house and mice in the freezer :v: Would love to get a green vine snake or an emerald tree boa but if i can't even get a ball just now then I'm fecked for the awesomer ones :frown:
hey, fighting fish eat those tiny snails. My guy thought they were Delicious. Until their dead carcasses poised the very water he lived in. He died.
It's sad that in California, Majority of Cool Exotic Pets are illegal ): Fennec Foxes...are allowed with a permit I am sure. But pets like hedgehogs,ferrets, are not allowed):
That's pretty derp, you can get a fennec fox but not a ferret or a hedgehog? Weird.
[QUOTE=Mastotron;30256213]That's pretty derp, you can get a fennec fox but not a ferret or a hedgehog? Weird.[/QUOTE] Yeah, There exotic pet laws are pretty strict. Sigh. I hear the reason ferretts are not allowed due to rabies, prone to biting, and something about over population. So many lame excuses to keep out cool pets. :T I wanted to get a silver domesticated fox from russia, but those aren't allowed:[
Silver foxes look kick ass, I kinda want an alligator snapping turtle, partly for house defence and partly for the sheer glory and awesomeness of having an alligator snapping turtle. Although I don't think you could own one in the UK.
I used to have a Yemen chameleon which died because his heat lamp broke, and then I got a Mountain Horned Dragon, which died of unknown causes I'm staying away from reptiles for now, just trying to bring life back into my marine tank which has 1 black and white clownfish [editline]5th June 2011[/editline] you can own an alligator snapping turtle in the uk
My school has an Alligator Snapping Turtle, his name is Tank. I nicknamed him "Boner Turtle," because every time I pick him up he gets a boner (only with me for some odd reason), and let me tell you turtles have the biggest fucking dicks you will ever see. It was as long as [i]him[/i].

Oh god why do I wish the death upon these poor fish :v:
I used to have 2 leopard Geckos, one died recently of unknown causes but the other seems to still be going strong, rather strange, but hey I aint complaining that he's still happy as larry.

But when they get older they will be lazy as fucking hell.
speaking of amazing pets, my local reptile shop has this little caiman which they rescued or something it's in a glass enclosure behind the counter and it has a little pond and waterfall and it just sits there looking cute :iia: and they have a green iguana which they also rescued which has its own big enclosure which they leave open so it can roam the shop

I mean it's bad down here in the States too, but some of the laws in Britian can actually directly affect me. Shit, I hate dealing with stupid politicians here. At least they are going to be removed from offices around the country next election season, hell Rick Scott has earned himself a place on the Hate List in my county he's so bad :v:

[QUOTE=Alcapwne;30257946]what kinda laws?[/QUOTE] Costly DWA licences and shitty internet laws. Like the one were if you commit 'copyright infringement' by downloading something and your entire family can have their internet cut-off. Forever. Surprisingly the US has the most free net laws, it's just lawyers try to abuse the system by fucking with the wording in some laws.
I wish I could get a Marmoset. Sadly, I don't think you can in UK :smith:
Believe it or not, they were going to put a law through in the US that would ban the import of non native species for the pet trade. Including a startling number of fish. [url]http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-669[/url] It would have made getting many animals really difficult and pretty much kill the pet trade in the States.

Most get eradicated, like this law, for the reasons you stated (kill the pet-trade). [editline]5th June 2011[/editline] Yeah, looked at it. It's been pushed to the bottom of the Calender because it's bad.

I read the title as erotic pets. I was mortified for a second there

I'm planning on getting a baby Sulcata Tortoise as soon as I come up with $60. Those motherfuckers get up to 3 feet around and can be 350 pounds.

I have a small collection of reptiles (planning on expanding, eventually). Logos: WC Western Slender Glass lizard Smoothie: CB Golden Gecko Moranna: Cornsnake; charcoal morph. I'm going to either get more corns or get a ball python. I want an axanthic or super cinnamon >>
