As far as breeding them goes, It haven't really put a full effort into it as I'm trying to breed Hi-Fin Swords(freshwater) right now and resources are limited. I'm sure if I put them in their own private tank with all the fixings I could get them to breed fairly quickly but that's just not really feasible right now.
I have a green cheek conure, Most adorable thing.
Also you should add that cockatoos, will SCREAM.
I have a run of the mill Ball Python, Hypo Amel Corn Snake, A leopard Gecko, and a Bearded Dragon. But I only care for the snakes. My brother rightfully so owns the lizards, so he is the one who cleans the cages and stuff. Will post pics tomorrow. I've posted them before, but they've grown a bit since then, so I guess I will take new ones.
I was inspired to get a gecko after that "Lizard Chilling on my Plunger" thread.
Ended up getting an African fat-tailed gecko but it's extremely difficult to maintain IMO. Primarily because I have such horrible bug phobias yet I must feed him live crickets.
Which shit everywhere. :byodood:
I had a rock
he died :colbert:
This thread has potential. mind if I remake your banner?
maybe you can use it for the next edition.
And now Henry (yes, I named him Henry) is pissy and trying to bite me. Does it hurt when leopard/African fat tails bite?
Nevermind, I'm dumb. African fat tails don't have teeth. :colbert:
There's lots more pictures where that came from, don't worry.
Birds don't necessarily need 'training' like a dog does (ie. heel, sit, lay down), but they need discipline so they know when not to bite, etc.
They are EXTREMELY smart though. The cockatoo has managed to pick through all the locks on her cage (even combination locks), so we had to go with a key lock. She also is very respectful towards humans. If she's on somebody, but has to poop, she will go to an extreme of a limb (ie. end of the arm) so that way she won't get any on you.
I got a ball python. Doesn't move much...
im thinknig about getting a dragon, sorta like hargird in harry potter? anyone know where I can find one?
I want a chameleon but I don't have room for it
Damn it, they told me at the pet store that having a rock pet was so difficult.
All ammateurs out there, start raising something easier like komodo dragons and then move to rocks, that way, you won't commit all the mistakes I did with rockie.
Tamaskan dogs should be in op.
I'm getting a chinchilla once I can afford one (I've been stowing some money away for care).
Look into its eyes and don't smile
i have a retarded cat
The Blue Headed Pionus is very temperamental and territorial, but when calm is really nice. He smells great too! Doesn't like getting petted very much.
The Macaw is a very playful one, acts like a dog almost, but gotta be careful with him because he sometimes bites too hard when he's playing.
The African Grey is bonded solely to my mom. I can get near and kiss her on the beak and pet her sometimes, but with my dad, not a chance.
The Cockatiel is scared shitless of pretty much everything. He just lulls around the place doing whatever he wants.
In terms of training, I can't make a judgement call because they aren't like normal dog or cat pets. You can't really gauge how well they've learned something unless it's talking or tricks because they'll still bite you from time to time if you don't know the signals. That being said, some of them don't bite (ie. the Cockatoo) and some of them don't talk (again, the Cockatoo as an example).
I have several gila monsters in my closet. They feed on live humans.
So I was right, monsters DO live in my closet.
My family and I foster kittens, while its not really very exotic it certainly is interesting getting to raise a new litter of kittens every 2-3 months.
Amy, The Blue and Gold Macaw:
Amy eating a cherry, you can see my wind-destroyed trampoline below.

Heidi, The Lesser Jardine's Parrot:
I used to have a white parakeet, but he always freaked the fuck out when I got near him.
One day, he was very placid (a first) and ended up dying the next day. I only had him for about a month.
I'd definitely like to get a parrot and a chameleon in my lifetime.
To anyone considering getting a parrot or bird of any kind, find a friend who has one or spend a fair amount of time in a bird store. You probably aren't expecting the noise-factor to be nearly as horrific as it is. Sun-rise is the worst time of the day, bad enough that at times, the only option is to cover the bird's cage with a sheet to simulate night.
Cleanup sucks, they have a habit of putting their pellets in their water. (So be sure to never buy a feed with any dyes in it if you like your carpet)
All I have is a cute cat, I love her:
although sometimes, she can get very angry:
