Rescue Me ID: 14-09-20-00328iguana (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult

    I have a 4 foot iguana that is approximately 9 years old. He also has a lifetime enclosure with all necessary lighting, heating and humidity. I hate to have to give him up however, life took a turn that was unexpected, and now I am living in my semi truck. He has only been owned by me for about 4 years. He was severely neglected prior to my taking him. He also has a metal plate in his jaw from where he wrestled and lost to a recliner. 3/4 of his tail is missing. So his size is as big as he will ever get. He is used to someone handling and feeding him. However, it may take him a little time to warm up to someone new. Please, I don't want to ... (Read More)put him to sleep, I don't even want to get rid of him. But I do want what's best for him. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-13-00445Red Eared Slider (female)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    Hi my name is Shelley. I am a 5 and a half year old turtle. My previous owner was moving and could not take me with her so my current owner took me in. Sadly my current owner has realized that she can not take care of me as well as she would like to between school and work. she does however want to see me go to a good family that can spend more time with me since I am sociable. I can bring along my home (50 gallon aquarium), my rocks, all my lights (day, heating, and night heating), and both my filters, plus what ever food is left.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-21-00571Ball Python

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    Think I'm female, but haven't been told. I'm about 3 years old, and prefer to eat live mice. I'm healthy and active - especially when I think I might have a chance to get out of my aquarium! My owner has gone off to college, and his mom really doesn't want to have to take care of me. She will as long as she has to, but would prefer I go to a home where I'm wanted, and will be well cared for. I can take along my aquarium and its base, along with the heating lamp and box I like to hide in during the day.

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Illinois
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.

    The word Reptile comes from the Latin Repere, which means to creep. In the Florida Everglades, there are over 20,000 non-native reptiles such as Burmese Pythons due to people releasing reptile pets into the wild. Some kinds of turtles can live to be over 100 years old.
