Thanks for all the welcomes!

You are correct, Uros are very addicting. I wanted one the first time I saw one. I 'thought' we had bonded as the little Mali watched me as I walked throughout the pet store. I later learned that they are alert inquisitive creatures and it wasn't bonding at all- just curiosity. I would have purchased him but I shy away from purchasing anything from pet stores. To strengthen that point- they had the Mali on a diet of canned fruit in a heavy syrup. He was sticky from head to tail and covered in substrate.

After doing research on the care of Uromastyx, I returned to the store and nicely tried to convince them that they needed to change the Mali's diet. One employee insisted that she had researched the diet and it was just fine. I sarcastically said to the employee that I didnít believe maraschino cherries were a staple of the Maliís diet as they had a hard time growing in the African desert. I am not certain that she picked up on the sarcasm.

My two parrots are an African Grey and a Yellow Nape.
I have had them for over 15 years. Due to a newly blended family and my stepdaughter's allergies, I may be forced to part with them. I have been looking for a good home for them for two years now. Unfortunately, there are so many idiots out there that I haven't been able to find the perfect home yet.

Ok, this is getting lengthy so will stop gabbing now.

Again, thanks for all the welcomes!
