I've been keeping inverts for around ten years now. I like animals more than people. That's not an exaggeration. I have dogs, cats, horses, and even a few baby cows at one time. I ate them. (They were delicious). Anyway, I'm looking at new hobbies(no, I'm not selling my inverts, or leaving the arachnid hobby) and I'm drawn to fish and reptiles. Anyone keep these? I'm interested in hearing your experiences keeping these, or any other animal, and please be thorough in your reply. What are the pros and cons of keeping fish, reptiles, or whatever animal you have? Why do they bring you joy? Do you like them even more than spiders? Why? I'm branching out and I want to hear your opinions. Even you, @LC72uk. Why do you keep the dangerous ones? @Tortoise Tom why do you love turtles? Someone recently mentioned hedgehogs. Another person mentioned rats once, and got me thinking about them. They're supposed to be intelligent little farts, by all accounts. Let's hear it for your personal choice of pets. Care and handling, feeding, whatever you want to talk about.
