Reptiles Need Love stamp by SizzyBubbles Reptiles Need Love stamp by SizzyBubbles
Bear with me. I'm all over the place on this one. It's a good vent session.

There is more to the animal world than just your dogs, cats, and horses. Reptiles need our love just as much as them.
Just 'cause they are not "appealing" and seem to be seen as something bad. EDUCATE yourself. Don't be all, "Eww, reptiles are gross 'cause... uh... reptiles are gross..." Ya know? THEY ARE NOT VERMIN. THEY ARE NOT KILLERS.

Don't categorize them as being brainless, un-evolved, nasty, slimy, man-eaters, that are even seen as some kinda Satan spawn.

More people are bitten by your "harmless" domestic dog then poisonous snakes (along with big cats, bears, and wolves COMBINED).

I suppose geckos are lucky 'cause they can be sooooo damn cute. Don't forget the rest! They all have personalities, likes, dislikes, just like any other animal. They can suffer, feel pain, and this should not be overlooked.
As I've said before: Don't you dare call yourself an animal lover is you don't count in reptiles too.

Even though I mostly draw and write about mammals, I love Reptiles too.
I should really learn to draw reptiles better. Because I know that they are very interesting to draw, too.

Everyone loves the cats, dogs, and bunnies more than the reptiles and birds. When I went to the pet store to pick up our new budgies, a Chinese Water Dragon was staring sadly at me. Then, he started pawing at the glass.Most of the reptiles they had did that. I really wanted to take one home, but I already bought 2 birds and my grandmother was too overwhelmed with the prices.

Why? Is it because you worship your precious vermin reptiles, reptile nutter?

I agree. Reptiles and mollusks are my favorite animals, and pretty much the only ones I draw. ^^

While reptiles are beautiful, intelligent, caring creatures they still are in control of the the World Governments and are working with the Freemasons to take over the world. (This is a joke)

I agree 100%, Reptiles rock! though, I used to be afraid of snakes when I was younger but I overcame that fear a long time ago and now I think they're just as awesome and I'd love to own one as a pet! I have 2 lizard which are bearded dragons right now for pets and they're just as cute, cuddly and awesome. XD Plus, reptiles remind me of dinosaurs which is funny being that some of them actually are, and well, dinosaurs were reptiles too.

Goddang do I love reptiles. (And this stamp.)
I personally think reptiles are cute, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.
I always go to the reptile section in pet stores so I can see all the adorable little herps wandering their cages. I can't wait to get my snake in the fall~ :3

Yeah I count reptiles! I hope you count all animals too. I know crocodiles are very smart and learn with few repetitions. I love all animals hell even the ones that most people hate. I love each critter for what they and only they can do. I don't expect a cat to do what a dog can do nor expect it from any animal to be something there not. I love big deadly meat eating critters despite that they can and will kill me. Just like I love herbivores despite them not being deadly or bad ass looking. Their not just the dumb boring grazers that the cooler animals eat. I wish people would not being so concern what on the surface and look underneath.

I have a snake. He's a beautiful animal and not in the least bit slimy. Sure, he tries to bite sometimes, but he's really young and small and the only reason why he gets freaked out is because I haven't handled him in a while. :heart:

Yep!
Its not unusual for young reptiles to be snappy. They just feel the need to defend themselves and/or aren't used to people yet

I love all animals, and it bugs the crap outta me when someone is like "Ew a snake, it's so slimy!" or some bullshit.

Do you know that people will PURPOSELY run over a snake if they see it in the road? I don't remember where I heard it, but these guys put a fake snake out in the road to test it and nearly everyone ran it over, even going OUT OF THEIR WAY to hit it.

But they wouldn't go out of their way to hit a dog or something, hmmm?

Cobra sacred in India; they also help keep the rodent populations down. Shall I also say that both the male and female Cobra nurse their young too? Yeah, they can spit their venom and they eat other snakes, but most of the time they don't want much with the humans.

Dolphins on the other hand kill their own kids for either pleasure or to have sex with their mates. They're known to rape humans (I am not making this up). They're the ones who are killing the manatee populations, not boats (hell, we've added so many features to boats to prevent this it's not even funny), and for no real reason other than it's funny to them. And we call them "cute?"

Explain the logic please... =/

I know how you mean.
Most people these days don't see reptiles as intelligent beings with individual personalities. But I think anyone who owns a reptile would say otherwise. They could go on and on about how their reptile does this, or doesn't like this,or how he does something when you feed, 'cuddle', or whatever with him.
I saw a video where a tegu breeder was trying to feed a gaggle of lizards (4 ft long'ins); they wouldn't even glance at the food. They were crawling all over his lap and craving his attention. So there, reptile haters. ^_^
