Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult


    His name is Igor and we got him 3 years ago from a couple who took wonderful care of him and rescued him from his previous abuse and neglect as a young lizard... He was a very docile and loving boy the first 2 & 1/2 years; loving his pettings, roaming the house and riding on our shoulders... within this last 6-8 months he has gotten a bit aggressive; not even allowing us to open his cage for feedings, cleaning or letting him out to 'roam' without an attempted attack... Yesterday, for the first time, he lashed out and actually bit my finger to where I had to get stitches... We have 2 children whom he used to love on, and I do not want them in ... (Read More)danger of biting or being lashed with his tail... PLEASE HELP!!! I know somewhere in there is the same loving boy he once was, I just don't know what we can do to help him and he will not calm down for anything :( (Less)

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