Rescue Me ID: 14-04-19-00224Burmese python (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult

    Due to unforeseen circumstances, this handsome guy is still searching for his next best friend--BEFORE APRIL 25. Is it you? This is Gabriel, an adult albino burmese python with a very sweet and gentle disposition. He enjoys spending quality time with his caretaker, being handled and exploring outside his enclosure. Gabriel also does great with other people, and enjoys being the center of attention in social or educational settings. So he needs to be your companion, not your specimen--a member of your family rather than part of a collection. Gabriel is 5-7 years old, confirmed male by a veterinarian, a good feeder and in great shape with no ... (Read More)history of health problems. As you can see, he is a beautiful example of his coloring and species. I am moving out of state on April 26th, and thanks to the Lacey Act it is illegal for me to take him with me. I have tried twice to place him, but it has fallen through both times. Now it is URGENT for Gabriel to find a new best friend to look after him with love and affection. A modest rehoming fee will apply to ensure serious inquiries from experienced herp hobbyists only--burmese pythons are not for beginners. Gabriel's tank is also available, if you wish to keep him in his familiar surroundings. A separate fee applies. See included photo. Email for more information or call (no texts) 847-721-1858 between 12 noon and 8pm. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-01-00404Red Eared Slider (female)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    I am moving in August and looking for a home for my amazing red eared slider I rescued in 2009 when she was the size of a quarter. She is extremely healthy and beautiful and about the size of an adult human hand. I have a huge tank (maybe 75 gallons? not sure) and filter up for grabs along with her, if needed and I will start you off with some food and clean filters for her. I just want her to get a good start in a good home. I wish I could take her with me but I think the move will be hard on her and difficult for me with a cat as well.

Rescue Me ID: 14-02-26-00287red eared slider

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    We took in a Red Eared Slider for my preschool teacher's friend and were told a great deal of misinformation about their care. Now, I know I should have listened but I did not realize how different the care was from a tortoise. We cannot properly care for it, and would like to find it a home where it can be properly cared for.

Rescue Me ID: 13-12-27-00401Leopard Geckos (female)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult

    I have 2 female Leopard Geckos that live in a 20 gallon tank with a very secure meshed top that locks in place. Our cat walks on top of it at times and the top is very strong to hold the cat. It is a beautiful setting with a poster in back and driftwood and 2 caves. One cave sits directly on the sand, the other cave is totally enclosed with moist moss. The tank has two thermometers. The sand needs to be exchanged for new sand, but not very often. Also new moss in the cave every now and then. It needs to be kept moist. I use filtered water for the Geckos. A large, clamped drop light with a ceramic red heat lamp keeps them warm. The ... (Read More)Geckos love to eat large crickets and it is fun to watch them go hunt in the evening. They are nocturnal. We feed them 30 to 40 large crickets every 2 weeks. One female is especially beautiful with a chubby tail. She is relaxed when handled, while the smaller female has a more nervous personality when handled, so we been leaving her alone. There is a shallow water dish (it needs filled every day) and a small dish for cricket food. Also we have a jar of cricket food, Gecko vitamins for powdering the crickets and a scoop for the poop. They only poop in one corner of the tank. I only want the Leopard Geckos to go to a loving home that is dedicated to their needs and has experience with Reptiles. The Geckos have always been healthy and are quite the eating machines! :) (Less)

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. The breeding or keeping of reptiles is called Herpetoculture. Some kinds of turtles can live to be over 100 years old.
