Really….would you want to find THIS on your windowsill?
Sometimes this ‘having exotic animals as pets’ thing goes a bit too far.
I mean, I guess we shouldn’t talk….my own dear wife, when she was lots younger (18-20), had several constrictor snakes as pets (most of them were rescued from others who were irresponsible pet owners). Those who owned the constrictors had them as a “status symbol,” she said, and ended up being unable to afford the rats and other animals on which they fed. So she took them in and tended to them until owners who would treat them well could be found.
There are apparently still plenty of exotic pet owners, only these days, instead of letting their reptiles starve, they evidently lose them…reference this article from the Belleville News Democrat:
Naturally, the BND got it wrong, misquoting what the Alton Telegraph reported probably shortly after the braniacs at BND posted the article to AP, which widely disseminated it incorrectly as well. The critter wasn’t a Nile Monitor Lizard, but was an Argus Monitor Lizard, from Australia, not Africa….so they were a whole continent off. Here’s the real story:
And here’s an image of the real critter:
Not THE critter that was sitting in the windowsill causing grief and consternation, but the type of one.
Anyway. Owning such creatures is probably not a good idea. When you “accidentally” introduce a species not indigenous to the area in which you live, you might end up with problems….like the pythons that are now all over the Florida Everglades. Of course, you probably would fit right in with Agenda 21, which includes the “rewilding” of huge segments of America, with “islands of humanity” scattered here and there, kind of like Biblical times when there were lions and all kinds of things that would kill a human if they decided to take out across the countryside to visit someone and preach the good news. Back then, they were able to carry swords with them to fend of the vicious animals. Under Agenda 21, we wouldn’t be so allowed, and in fact, would get into a lot of trouble toting any kind of weapon at all….they just want us to stay in place, and let the government take care of us. No kidding; I’m not making this up. It’s a frightening prospect….every bit as frightening as finding a four-foot lizard on your windowsill, no matter what continent it originally came from.
