She looks so fragile Bethany - I would be scared to handle her in case I broke her, she is so pretty and beautiful markings

She is, I really don't like picking her up, but once she is on my hand she just climbs away

So pretty! The last few Leopards I worked with were aggressive - it's kinda funny to watch such a small little lizard arch it's back, hiss, and try to bite

Yep - tiny little teeth When they bit me, I had tiny little red marks on my hand from their teeth, but they don't break the skin. The trick is to not pull away, or it'll just scrape your hands and then it will break the skin lol. Otherwise, they just kinda gnaw on you for a few seconds and give up

Mine has bit me twice, both my fault for having my finger in her face while carrying her It didn't hurt though, and I didn't feel teeth, just a light pinch!

dunno if it makes a difference, but I was bit by a big adult male - he was a former breeder. He was huge for a leopard! Maybe he had bigger teeth More likely he just meant business and was out to injure, rather than just a warning bite

I don't understand why some people say ew about reptiles. They're very beautiful and cute!

Probably, she is still quite small, only 5 months

I understand if they don't want to touch them or be close to them, but I guess I shouldn't be talking cause I can't stand spiders

I kinda do, but I think everybody should give them a chance. I absolutely hate spiders, but I've held one, I'm trying to get over it because I hate squishing them but my boyfriend throws things at them

Regarding spiders, I'm with your boyfriend, Daisy. Any way to get rid of them is great in my book.

Haha nanay! I can understand why people hate them because I'm terrified. I'm trying to help him get over it by him stroking pictures of them in an animal book I have. It really freaks him out. I never kill them any more. I just kind of ignore them, but if it gets too close I scream and run! I'm dreading what me and Al are going to be like when we go to Australia next year. I've been told they're everywhere, and deadly!
