Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult

    Rodney is an adult male Gulf Coast box turtle (Terrapene carolina major) who entered CMTR's care on 08/22/17. Rodney asked us to share his letter to Santa: Dear Santa: I have been an EXCELLENT boy this year. I battled cancer with quiet stoicism, and I am downright 'handicapable' adjusting well to losing my right front foot due to the mass. Given I have had a rather Charles Dicken's like year, I am adding a few 'big ticket' items. I hope you'll consider my requests (and, I'll have the cookies and milk ready). Merry Christmas Santa (and Mrs. Clause)- Rodney My wish list: 1) A box of Cuban cigars (oops, my foster dad is saying NO) 2) ...

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Mississippi
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Mississippi 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.
