Just to make things clear:
I don't like dogs!  (Some of their owners are even worse)
*edit: there are some I like. My neighbor has a rhodesian ridgeback. such a beauty and calm personality.

I shouldn't like your cat. I like their fur. However his head/face is absolutely incredible.  I'm converted.

He isn't exactly "bald" he has a very little amount of fur, thats why he looks graysih. Canadian species have hairy tails and little amount of fur. It's kinda like mans beard after shave, but smoother, ofcourse. ;D

His stunning face already won me over. So his fur is like suede?

That sounds good. Well it's "fur" to say I'm a massive fan of your cat.


(Apologies for the terrible joke/pun)

you know what.  If they would put the owners of those snakes and spiders in small boxes for there remaining time on earth.
how would you feel if you have a living space so small.  They need to roam the forests or the enviroment they need.  Not a damn small place at some ones house.

same idea with zoo's and all rest of captive animals.  animals should be free, not in captivity.

ow en poachers should be shot on sight.  they suppley the "animal lovers who put them in a box"

sorry made some typo's i think but english not my native language.

I fully appreciate your opinion. But to be fair snakes won't roam too far in the wild if they've got everything near them. Shelter, food and water. My snakes are all sit and wait predators. So in the wild they'd spend days/weeks in the same spot waiting for a prey item to come past. They'd then spend the next few weeks hiding whilst they digested their meal.

Once again my spiders in the wild wouldn't venture far from their burrow/hide. Just waiting inside with their legs outside waiting for an unsuspecting prey item to wander past. My centipedes are active hunters though so they have a lot more room to move around to recreate their natural behaviour.

African bullfrogs are sit and wait predators too. Burrowing down into the substrate waiting for an unfortunate victim to happen upon it.


My Tokay gecko would move around at night too to find prey. They often end up in peoples houses and are welcomed due to them eating pests.

You have to remember an animal will only work as hard as they have to in order to survive.  And my pets are all instinctual.  i.e they're not exactly thinkers like say a mammal.

All my animals apart from a few of my inverts are captive bred. So they have never had a wild life.

I don't like the idea of monkeys being kept as house pets or birds in little cages though as they don't get exhibit natural behaviour. Which is vitally important to animals that are capable of thinking and understanding their captive life.

Heh seems much more like "Dino Fight" than feeding  :smile:
To be honest, it looks really impressive. I must check if some of my friend don't have this beast.

Cool animals but I find them too creepy to be pets. Well, at least someone likes nature even in his house (I love nature but not as much as this).
BTW You have so many of them, must be very expensive to run.

They're quite cheap to be honest. I breed my own food for everything except my snakes. And their food costs me about £30 per month. Electricity costs aren't too bad either to be honest.  All my exotic pets apart from my reticulated pythons are heated with heat mats and they're really cheap to run.
