        Where did you get him, if I may ask, and what made you decide on this particular reptile pet?

        I was curious because so many new forum members have pets they acquired in the last 3 months. They are great for children to learn biology lessons and to learn responsibility for their care. Do the kids help out much?

        That’s awesome! Good to get them started young.

        Just a quick reminder that they should wash their hands each time after handling any reptiles. Not for coronavirus, but because many, many reptiles shed salmonella bacteria. Most reptiles are resistant, and therefor asymptomatic and you don’t know they have it, but this disease can be quite serious for small children. And with the otherwise disease challenges floating around these days…
