So we all love Blue Tongue Skinks or we wouldn't be here. What other pets do you have?

Awww, nice! I've got plenty others but I'm usually at work when I check the forum on a piece of junk computer. I'll try and find some time and post some pics from home. Easier than using my phone which about makes me go blind! That bunny is adorable, a friend of mine has one like that. Unfortunately my allergies won't allow me to hold him. It's like torture not being able to give him a big hug!

Yes I am highly allergic to it but its my wife's and she allows me to keep my collection so I wouldn't force her to rehome it. Recently became asthmatic for the first time until I moved him to his own spare bedroom that he free roams. He is the most friendly thing too, runs right up to me every time I go in and paws at me, follows me around everywhere. I can only entertain him for a few minutes. But I'll tell you if you think lizard proofing a room is hard, try bunny proofing one. They chew EVERYTHING. He once chewed through heat and uv light cords for three of my Blue Tongue enclosures that I temporarily ran exposed wires through a cardboard box until I could plate them but this demon spawn managed to chew through the cardboard box and get in. Nevermind, the fact that he singed his whiskers real good gnawing the first cord but continued until he severed all the rest. He even chews the cord while I'm vacuuming and I constantly have to shoo him away.

Oh no! Yeah, in reality they're just big cute rodents and they love to chew! Here's a few of my others...

Beautiful animals. Love that Cuban anole. I have a couple others but posted them in Other Skink Species thread instead.

And ditto on the big rodents. I always jokingly refer to him as a "rat with ears" and my wife is quick to correct me that he's a lagomorph. She's the expert, I'm not.

Cuban anoles have a bad reputation, but it is completely false. Some are not the friendliest, but I even had a tame tokay gecko. Gentle handling and the right approach and I believe any can be tamed. This guy was a sweetheart from day one. Here he is two years ago when he just arrived.

Awwww! Beautiful! I love cats, birds too but unfortunately my allergies prohibit my keeping. I used to keep macaws, what fun they were! Loud and messy but so worth it with their hysterical antics.
