OK, thanks v much for your response. I took offence as being dumped in the same bag as many IRRESPONSIBLE, and so-called 'pet-lovers'. I can assure you, I am NOT in this category and NOR is my friend who would be an ideal forever-home, his reptiles are kept in superb conditions, he never has any fatalities (except his old WATER MONITOR who actually DIED OF OLD AGE!) for any iguanas that happen to hatch here. I was offended as being 'labelled' and written to in the manner I was. I know how many irresponsible folk want to keep these exotics as 'symbols' - like the man mine were taken away from, by one of our animal trusts and handed over to me, which wouldn't have happened if I was a known 'irresponsible' - I rest my case, and I DO respect 'Bb' for his outburst, let's leave it to that.....regards.
