Reptiles are great, but they belong in the wild, not in a box.

This fren living in your house has more space than a captive pogona who is supposed to live in an endless desert.

The true solution is outdoor enclosures

Yeah, but I live in a cold climate area where everything brumates. I wanna see at least one reptile year round.

There is snakes and lizards almost everywhere, read about the species available in your country/state and you will see them if you search at the right places.

>look it up
>Atlantic is actually warmer than the Pacific
I have no fucking clue. Might just have something to do with the distribution of coastal habitats and differences in the nutrient/food chains.

Kinda weird that sea snakes evolved to be terrestrial in australia to become all the Australian elapids we know and even became convergently evolved with vipers as death adders with all the same cursed anatomy but didn’t just spread to another ocean

This is a herp snob thread, not a thread for PETA members who think every animal should be living a free bambi style life even if they’re captive bred and well looked after
>>
>>3988978
Nigga, did you not hear me? I said they're all brumating. Hibernating. Because North American species don't want to deal with the cold.

I got curious and learned that there are actually two species of freshwater sea snakes that evolved pretty recently (only around 500 years ago) when their lakes got land locked.
Pic related is one of them, Hydrophis semperi from Lake Taal in the Philippines. Not much is known about them and they get killed a lot by fishermen so they're becoming endangered. They would make really cool captives though.

Sea snakes evolved after South America and North America linked up and traveling around South America's tip is impossible since it's so cold. It's the reverse of manatees, which can be found in Africa and the Caribbean because they evolved before the continents drifted apart.
