letting Leopard G out to roam?
I am curious about the safety of my L.G. and letting him out to roam a bit.
He seems to not have depth perception! He is not a year old yet, I got
him from a former teacher at my school. I did not raise reptiles growing
up. What is the general consensus on letting them out of the tank? I
also made him a 12X24 plastic container space where he can experience a sandy tourane. He
definitely appears more stimulated and happier when he gets these experiences.
At times when I let him roam on my desk I fear that he will fall off..

Uromastyx are very awesome reptiles to keep. I have had 2 Mali's and 2 morracans, the babies do have to be have adult uromastyx poop on their food after hatching to help aid the immune system and has to be done early because they lose their appetite for it very fast. Good luck with whatever you end up with.

- The baby iguanas are cheap because no one breeds them in cages, they are all wild caught and shipped here. There is NO selling market for captive bred iguanas with all the cheap imports. There are iguana rescues over flowing because there are too many iguanas and not enough people to care for them properly. ( http://www.triangleiguanarescue.com/ )
I hate that they are sold so cheap, just because they get SO large as adults. The general public can't handle adult iguana care.

Or because there so cheap ( the babies ) should I look for something else ? I run and own a aviary I breed many types of parrots . So I know what I'm doing and love genetics . I don't see any local breeders in Indiana . I look on the Internet and see only the big mail order shops for reptiles . I'm just thinking about it right now and need more information . Any good books , groups ect that I need to do this right thanks chris
