  2. REPTILES DON'T REQUIRE MUCH SPACE- A 10-20 GALLON TANK IS FINE.





  3. REPTILES ARE EASY TO FEED-JUST INSECTS OR RODENTS OR FRUIT AND VEGGIES.





  4. KEEPING REPTILES PROVIDES A LESSON IN RESPONSIBILITY-FAIRLY LOW IMPACT ANIMALS REPTILES ARE A BETTER CANDIDATE TO TEACH YOUNGSTERS HOW TO CARE FOR A PET THEN A HIGH MAINTENANCE ANIMAL.





  5. REPTILES FOSTER INTEREST IN THE NATURAL WORLD-REPTILES ARE MORE EXOTIC THAN OTHER PETS.
