    Some Caimen's! These guys were like 400 bucks I believe... Or 200 something. Really pretty lizards. Never seen them in person.

    Hope you enjoyed!

    Oh, p.s. I'm applying to this reptile shop for a job!:) Would be awsome to get the job, to work with reptiles... Till I left for college!

    The python is a green tree, and they get long, forget how long, but stay really, really skinny.

    Yeah, they are really cool, but too delicate for my tastes... though they are fun to look at every time an expo runs through ;)

    LOL BOTH! very, very delicate animals, and at 5-10 hundred dollars a pop, not something i would want to be messing with- That's not to say a experienced keeper can't have one, but it's certianly not a good reptile for those just looking for a handleable, easy pet.

    She's certainly a little beauty, too bad they don't have a better set up for her. They're easy to keep if you meet the basic husbandry needs they need. Not really delicate just more experience required to keep one. Like any other animal you respect it's needs and temper and you can handle them too. Just don't let your gaurd down ;)

    The caimans are a type of tegu and are probably closer to 400$. I was looking online for some and they were all about $450.

    That chameleon is awesome but really expensive which probably means really hard to keep...

    Besides the price tag this is why I don't have one :)

    Did I ever mention I have a phobia of being bitten? Yet I have been bitten by so many animals...

    I think with tree pythons it's hit or miss with the whole attitude issue. I've never had tree pythons but I've had amazon tree boas and they are the same as tree pythons as far as attitude. My male was nice, never bit or struck out at me, he could be handled with no issues at all. Now my female was extremely mean she would bite all the time, she calmed down after months of working with her but she still would bite just not nearly as much as in the beginning. Tree pythons and tree boas are great snakes to own and observe but take a lot of patience as far as docile handling goes, and expect to get bit. When they are smaller the bites are not that bad.

    Not entirely true.

    Caiman lizards are part of the Teiid family, but is NOT a Tegu in any way. It is CALLED the Water Tegu, but it isn't a true Tegu.

    They can be about $300-$400

    That skull was for an Emerald Tree Boa, not a Green Tree Python..
    They look very similar in coloration, and their coiled style of perching on branches..
    Emerald Boas are from South America, around the Amazon..
    The Green Trees come from Indonesia, and the island of Papua New Guinea..
