Default Skinks and lizards and spiders.. oh my.

We used to have bearded dragons.. they were fun.. I had one that thought he was cuddly, used to curl up between my neck and shoulder while I played the computer... and if you've ever seen them, you'll know, they are NOT cuddly.

My oldest son now wants a blue tongued skink for his birthday next month. Luckily, we'll be moving back into base housing when we move again when Daddy gets back from Iraq, and they're not allowed (whew... I hate saying no without a better reason than... eww, too much like a snake). So then he asked if he could have a tarantula.... NO NO NO... Spiders freak me out.

My sympathies mandalinn.. but unless you're sticking your fingers in their mouths, the most harm that skinks do is looking creepy.. They're actually one of the easier lizards to keep as pets (not that you would want to..).
