What do you think? I’ve kept several hundred species in zoos and at home, but still often find it hard to make a clear recommendation…your thoughts appreciated. Read the rest of this article here http://bit.ly/1lRy5R4

I agree with keith, My poor little baby sucalt. Fell victim to fire ants. Made a D-I-Y- Tort. pen and i turned my back for 5 mins, he was beyond saving. Turtles and torts require a expert keeper with alot of time and alot of money. Neither should be suggested for a beginner.

Just had a report of an adult green iguana killed by "crazy ants" in Texas.
