    Most of mine I do not, but I do keep a pair of free roaming box turtles, and I occasionally let my basilisk and vine snake out to roam around.

    I usually let the bigger ones have playtime in the front yard. The smaller ones are too quick if they want to make a break for it. They play inside. In fact, there are two yellow ratsnakes playing in the house right now... Sure wish I knew where!:D

    I chose no. I do let Spyro come out each day but he is always either on my shoulder or on the couch in the living room. As he is quite smallish and very fast, I prefer to keep him where I can see and catch him lol. I hope to extend his tme out once summer comes back (if it ever does in the UK lol).

    i let bear (BD) out when i clean the cage. He usually just sits there and watches me and chooses not to run around my herp room, and if he's not watching me he's trying to eat the superworm container in an attempt to get a few out and eat them.

    No, my corns are way too fast....they'd disappear! :eek: and Ky-Lin got out once and was gone for two days...that was all the "free roaming" I could take...I was so afraid she'd never be found :(

    Oh yes, I also let my mantids, and my banded argiopes free roam. The argiopes make new webs every few days in a new place in the room, and the mantids rarely venture far from their original positions. I had some free roaming fish for a while, but they didn't last long ;)

    we let our CWD out for a few hours every day. He used to have run of most of the house (a basement suite, and we would close off the bedroom areas), but now we have a spare room which is being used as the lizard room, so he gets free run of that, as it is kept warm and humid. though when i'm aruond, he's content to sit on my head/shoulder for quite awhile. Spoon, our crestie, doesn't get much run, since he's rather quick and jumpy. worried about catching him again. he does get out if i block off a small area of carpet and sit with him, or just to hold him for awhile.

    We let the corns roam ON us, same with the geckos... The geckos also get occasional time on a couch or chair in the living room, but they're too quick to allow them to roam free. With the corns, if they got out to wander free, we'd probably have a much smaller animal count... ;)

    The Iggy gets to roam the livingroom everyday but the snakes are held.... :)

    The beardies and the iguana get to wander around but the snakes all have to be content with being held with the exception of the ball pythons. All the rest are too fast and likely to get into somewhere that I can't retrieve them!
