Something so cute and small as a lizard?




Me and my dad were watching T.V and my mom comes running into the living room SCREAMING. We didn't know what the hack was wrong with her lol because she just standed there SCREAMING... she eventually screamed LIZARD!! but it was funny as hack.

This is the 2nd one I've caught in our house in the past two days the other one was a curly tail though..

It could be because their skin and saliva are the "Club Med" for more germs than you can imagine!!!:O:sad:

Cool shot! We used to have a Leopard Gecko and I never screamed, :lol:lol! They do have ALOT of germs though and after handling "Neo" we made hand-washing a priority! :G

Safe Handling of Pet Reptiles





Reptiles can make wonderful pets, but like all animals, they can carry germs that can make people sick. Safe handling of reptiles is important to prevent illness in people.





[size=Pet reptiles such as lizards, snakes, or turtles, can carry germs in their digestive system (from the mouth to the stomach to the intestines) and shed germs in their feces (droppings).][/size]

[size=][/size]

[size=Germs, such as the bacteria Salmonella, may be present on the skin or in the droppings of pet reptiles, even if the animal appears to be healthy. ][/size]

[size=If these germs are accidentally eaten, when a person touches the droppings (or the animal) and later touches his or her mouth, or prepares food without washing his or her hands first, the person may become ill. ][/size]Children are especially at risk for becoming infected because they are more likely to put their hands in their mouths after handling a pet.



Salmonella in humans[size=can cause an upset stomach, cramps, diarrhea, fever, nausea, and vomiting. Most people get sick 12 to 36 hours after the bacteria are swallowed. Symptoms usually last for several days. Some ][/size]people may get sick enough to go to the hospital. In rare cases, the bacteria can get into the blood and become life-threatening.



Anyone can become ill from these germs, but young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems may develop more serious illness.

Of course!

We have T.V. and Radio here!

He has a regular show on cable (part of the Animal Planet network.

Give me one dollar for each time his accident was mentioned on t.v. today and I can have a new camera.
