  • New to herps... and such!

    ... but not new to furries and fishes

    Blame Aneesa, she started telling me about her cresteds, then showed me pictures, and then here I was, reading as much as I could get my hands on and going "AWWWW! OOOO!! I LIKE him/her!"

    All I have pet-wise at the moment are bettas... unless my almost 2yr old son counts :P

    I'm a 25yr old stay-at-home mother of one, and adore animals. Hoping someday to get cresteds, but the $60-$300 for one scares me

    Well-- welcome to Pangea!
    You can try looking at reptile shows for inexpensive Cresteds, or on Craigslist (but make sure they're healthy if you do it thru craigslist).

    I've had my Cresteds for two years and I still look at pictures and do the "OOOhhh Ahhhh" thing
    They're tons of fun. And so gosh darn cute with their little eyelashes!!

        Ooooh Moo! Thanks for telling me- by those dates (if things go right), I SHOULD be relocated up in the Beaverton area, and be able to get some cresties!!

        At the moment, much as I want some, I have no place to put them without some serious juggling! Or the $$ >.>

        Craiglist for Oregon is scary LOL Lots of stuff there- I read it every day... *is so lame*

          You are more than welcome.
          You should definitely try to make it to one of the shows... at least to look around. See whats out there, what you like, and how much you'll have to save up.

              Thanks! I'll have to try to make it to one of the shows.

              I'll have to haul along my turtle-obsessed friend, too :P
