A large percentage of the population either get dogs or cats as pets, while some pick between birds or fishes. Understandable, because they’re the most common pets to have, but the remaining few have chosen some unusual pets for themselves.
Tarantulas, snakes, or lizards as pets must be quite odd because a lot of people are scared of how they look. However, if you are not afraid of these supposedly terrifying creatures, they actually make good pets!
How about we appreciate our reptile friends as well?
There are quite a lot of reptiles that could be kept as pets.
For example, chameleons and iguanas. Although they might not look like it, they are great! In fact, there are plenty of reasons why they are a great pet option. Aside from them being unique, one reason is how suitable they are for people who are always busy.
Though taming one is quite a challenge, once you handle them right, they are just as fun as other pets. Moreover, reptiles are also perfect for people who are allergic to dogs or cats. No fur! The only thing you need to overcome is fear.
If you want to know more about pet reptiles, Dave’s videos could probably answer your questions
Dave Durham, a big reptile lover, shares what taking care of reptiles is like.
His videos are documentations of day-to-day adventures of his beloved reptiles and upload them on YouTube. He currently has over 98 million subscribers on his channel. If you are having a hard time thinking of whether to get your own reptile, this video might just be able to convince you.
Well, if you love watching dogs greet their owners, there is a chance that your exotic pet can do it too!
Dave probably just got back home after going out for a short time. When he peeks into his yard, he could see his iguana peacefully basking in the sun. Dave then begins to call the iguana with a silly voice, just like others call their dogs. You know that he has successfully caught the lizard’s attention as its head bobs in response to him.
He looks like he’s barking too!
The lizard makes its move towards Dave, but you can see how he stops for a while and starts nodding its head with its mouth open. It certainly looks like he’s barking back at Dave. Finally, the lizard immediately sprints at Dave with an ecstatic face to welcome him. This iguana seems to miss its owner very much.
The iguana then receives plenty of pats from Dave
Just like a dog, Dave’s iguana loves getting pets.
He holds his head up to let Dave pet it, and he even gets pats at the back. You’ll just love how he interacts with Dave by nodding to his questions.
Iguanas are like dogs in some ways
“If treated right, an iguana will come when it’s called, remember its owners and beg at the dinner table,”
-quoted from All About Reptiles.
They are intelligent and can be trained to understand commands. With lesser maintenance than an actual dog, iguanas are pretty much their reptile counterpart. It is amazing how these cold-blooded reptiles could be just as sweet as dogs.
