Marley

As Angel Daughter Number Two gets ready to spread her wings to take her first leap from the nest, she decided she needed a little friend to keep her company.  When I told her that she could not take Jersey, our adorable black and white Cornish Rex kitty, she decided that a frog would be the next best thing.(Don't ask me how she went from "cute and cuddly" to "small and slimy"!)  Being the free-spirited angel that she is, AD2 came home from the pet store with this little reptile.  He is a Veiled Chameleon who she named Marley.  He is very cute now, but they change quite quickly.  They can grow to be eighteen to twenty-four inches long.  And they hiss.  And sometimes bite.  With strong clamping jaws.
Introducing Marley, the newest member of the Four Angel's Momma household, soon to be college student.  I have a feeling we are about to learn the true meaning of the word "Chameleon".

I thought that was a barette in her hair! Too bad he doesn't stay tiny.

I could have sent her DIABLO!!!

My brother had 2 Madagascar Day Geckos and had to hand feed them baby food - ONLY APRICOTS!!

Those things were so much work!!

Hope Marley is a little easier!!

Gotta say, I have already let Claire know that if she ends up marrying me, there will be zero reptiles in my home...or my family's home. Zero. None. Nada.

The devil was a snake. Read Genesis. It is true!

Devil = Snake = Reptile

Therefore

Bogart's house = Reptile free zone

sooner than you can say i-need-dermalogica he'll be as long as a dog and sporting uncommon enough looks to give you a startle if not a fright.

i was at a tiny airport in virgin gorda (one of the BVI in the caribbean) a couple months ago and they have a cage with 3 huge ones at the airport. better than CNN to pass the time waiting for a delayed flight.

but for right now, there may not be any cuter little critter on the earth! he's perfect. ♥

My youngest daughter, who will be 11 in Sept, wants a gecko for her birthday.

My friend has one that eats only fruit, so I told her that if she can find a fruity gecko I will buy it for her.

Yes, what is it about reptiles? My youngest son has his heart set on a turtle. Give me a warm-blooded critter any day... xxoo
