    Pretty much since the first week I bought Akatora I instantly wanted more herps.. but have no idea what I want to get next.. I am only on my class 1 of course .. but this doesnt limit many options at all =]

    I love how addictive this hobby is and how truly fun it is.. especially if I can get another gecko or similar with as much attitude as my knob tailed.. such a dude!! Its amazing..

    So I ask everyone this.. your first reptile.. and your second?.. Im wondering if I should get Akatora a nice friend and possibly breed.. yet this scares me or go completely different and get a dragon or even a small python.. too many options!! :)

    You know if you said "I want more herps!" anywhere but on here you'd get dirty looks ;)

    I hear you about the so many options part, I'm getting another lizard next year and there are 10 species i cant decide between.

    I'd love to see that "jingle python", kawasakirider ;)

    Wow that sounds interesting.. I have my aim for when I finish university and obviously have a stable job and home, will hopefully have a high enough license class to purchase an Albino Burmese Python.. in love!

    Pythons have always intrigued me.. But I think its the set up that stops me from pursuing it.. especially since I travel or move home twice a year in between uni semesters

    It was good fun freaking my land lord out when he did our house inspection the other day.. thinking that my amyae was venomous.. too funny!

    It's pretty run of the mill really, I just glue some tinsel and one of those reindeer hats to the male jungle for a Christmas theme. He gets left in the ornament box all year around, loves to stretch in the tree at Xmas time.

    -Then I kindof went ballistic.

    I suggest you get a mate for Akatora.
    Then you can give me a baby or 2 or 3 =p
