    Your bf/gf leaves you and you don't even realize it until after all the eggs hatch.

    you're bedroom is 20 degrees warmer than the rest of the house and you hate the heat.

    you're cat walks into your room like he's about to get ambushed by the veitcong army.

    people ask you if you're a cutter from all the scratches on your arms.

    you see a bug and you're first thoughts are how easy is it to breed?

    the petstore girl starts bagging up goldfish as soon as she see's your car.

    you find lizard shedding in your pockets when doing laundry.

    you're roomate is terrified of the cardboard box in the freezer.

    lol, these are all personal experiences.

    yes ditto ! you realize your the only one talking.

    and you worry about what the neighbors are thinking when they see all the red lights coming from your windows.

    your nails look like you have a dirty job from flipping and mixing mulch.

    When you are feeding them more properly than you are feeding yourself.

    When you take them for a walk instead of your dog.

    When people are talking about their cat and dog and ask you what kind of dog/cat you have, your answer is : Cat? Dog? The only thing I have are reptiles.

    When the sales person at the fish market already knows what the fish is for.Oh,I went to a new HEB ( store ) today and I asked for a small cat fish filet.He picket one up and I sad no, smaller please.I would like to have the smallest one you have.He looked at me really strange ( like, that little women needs to eat more.Why is she getting just one very small filet :lol: ).I looked back at him and smiled and sad that is for my Tegus.He sad FOR WHAT ? I sad.Those are lizards.Of corse I told him to check out our Tegu forum :lol: .The one sales person from that one HEB that I usually go to already knows us :lol: .

    When you are running out of enclosures and space for new ones.
    When you start with one and end up with seven reptiles.
    When every time you find out that someone is not taking care of there reptiles you want to adopt it.
    When you can't help bragging about the reptiles you have.Even when you know that people don't care or think that you are out of your mind.
    When your next door neighbor is to scared to come over ( our neighbors wife :lol: ).
    When you can't stop watching them to see what they are doing next.

    Every time the local neighborhood looses a dog or cat they come to your door to check the size of your reptile's belly.

    The police know you by name and call you every time there is a reptile related incident.

    All the local exotic pet stores come to you for their reptile needs.

    You have a very special "deal" with the over populated animal shelters

    To save money you sometimes spend the day in the woods hunting for food that isnt for yourself.
