Because we all have a collective fear of Godzilla, he's a known rapist.

Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer. Women aren't squeamish when it comes to reptiles. Just some of the women you know.
I love snakes and lizards, I've owned them as pets since I was 5. (And turtles but they're amphibians.)

Turtles are totally reptiles. They bury their eggs in the sand. No amphibian in their right might would do this.

i own two snakes and have a wishlist miles long of other reptiles i want. i much prefer them to warm blooded creatures, except for cats. I adore rodents and carpet sharks too, but i still love Reptiles the best.

also, turtles are reptiles.

Alright, fine. But i could have sworn that the teenage mutant ninja turtles always said they were amphibians, and i only retain information I learn from the tee vee... seems I was wrong. That'll teach me to try to think while doing data entry!
Go figure.
Even so, my long list of anoles, iguana, snakes, salamanders, and toads beg to differ with the idea that girls don't like reptiles. (or amphibians)

Yeah, turtles are reptiles. Amphibious ones, but reptiles nonetheless. It's worth noting, however, that birds are far more closely related to the rest of the "reptiles" than turtles are: http://www.tolweb.org/Amniota/14990

Amphibians, though, are in the other branch of tetrapods entirely, and thus are less closely related to reptiles than we ourselves are: http://www.tolweb.org/Terrestrial_Vertebrates/14952
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Reptiles are awesome. One of the best parts about Florida is the fact that there are little lizards running around everywhere. Amphibians are pretty cool as well. When I was little (like 5 years old) my neighbors across the street were deathly afraid of toads, so whenever they saw one they would yell for me and I would go over there and catch it and bring it back to my yard. (Of course, their gardens were much tastier than ours so I'm sure the toads just hopped right back over there when my back was turned)

Everyone: S-Q-U-E-A-M-I-S-H. Squeamish. :D

I like reptiles! I had a family friend that volunteered for WIRES and he used to have snakes around his place all the time. Often Diamond or Children's pythons. They were lovely creatures and incredibly fascinating. If you ever hold a snake or python and let it slither over your arm, it's so amazing just feeling the strength that they have.

We ourselves used to keep tortoises for a while, and we have an old blue tongue lizard in the front yard that likes to chill out there sometimes.

Having a reptile for a pet is slightly more interactive then having a fishtank, that is, slightly more then slightly more interactive then having a house plant.

Except houseplants and fish don't scutter off on their own. I think, at this point, we have one of two questions to ask ourselves:
(a)Is there much validity to the stereotypical female reaction to reptiles and amphibians?
or
(b)Is there a disproportionate amount of lizard lovin' ladies here on the fora?
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
And some old pictures.

Back when I worked at the comic shop, I performed an informal survey by draping my friend Mary-anne's ball python around my shoulders for a bit while working (He liked me. I'm warm). I counted one female who refused to come near me, and one male. Everyone else seemed fine.

It's possible it wasn't the python that they were scared of.

That being said, I don't think I'd be able to do that, I mean, put a python around my neck.

Ball pythons are little. If I spread my arms out, the snake would probably have stretched from mid-forearm to mid-forearm, and was about as big around as my wrist. It was not terribly worrisome. He was extremely strong for his size, but I think even if he was enamoured suddenly with the idea of killing an animal a bunch of times his size (and for some perspective, this was a snake who had to eat frozen mice because the live ones kept KICKING HIS ASS), I could probably have pried him free enough to breath comfortably.

The huge fuckall albino boa was another thing entirely. I also put that one around my shoulders, but I'm not gonna defend that.

Snakes are nice.

I had a veiled chameleon for two years as a kid, but then he got to be two feet long and we couldn't afford him anymore so we donated him to the Columbus Zoo for their breeding program as their breeding male had just died. Sometimes I visit him and he still puffs up with his happy greens when I wave at him, and a few times the handler even let me pet him--he did his little happy headbutts, too! It was so cute. He used to sit on my head and nuzzle against me or wrap around my neck. He hissed and nipped at anyone else but me. :3

I love reptiles. I love the way snakes especially feel on the skin, it's almost sensual. They're gorgeous creatures.

Hmm, I wonder if a full-sized python could take a raptor...ever tried fighting one?

Oh, by the way, huge-ass burmese pythons have apparently started infesting Florida.
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/200 ... htm?csp=34
Apparently they've gotten into epic fights with the native alligators, one which was photographed and lasted over 24 hours, and ended in a draw.

Slimy? Have you the brain worms? Why do people think snakes are slimy? Who perpetuates this idea?

They slither. On the ground. If they were slimy, they'd be sticky. If they were sticky, they would accumulate leaves and dirt and debris and pretty soon they'd be wriggling piles of crap.

They're not slimy. They're very dry, and very smooth.

Ok ok, wrong word choice. That whole cold slithery reptilian feel I mean. And brain worms may be a very distinct possibility.

Python tried to eat alligator and failed, the alligator was too large (or managed to claw open the belly)

Random snake story:

I've always loved snakes. There were tons of them in southern Colorado where I grew up. My grandparents had a bunch of land in the middle of nowhere and grandpa would take me out so we could see snakes, lizards, and sometimes, if we were lucky, tarantulas. (I remember him snatching a little hognose out of grandma's garden to show me its nose and the little girl who lived down the road ran home screaming. I thought it was cool.)

When I was 17 I was coming back from the grocery store and I saw a long bull snake who was sunning himself in the road get run over. Poor guy. So I made my boyfriend stop the car, checked to see if the snake was alive, then grabbed him and put him in a grocery bag and took him to the vet to see if they could fix him. They put him down since he was so hurt.

Wow, telling this story makes me realize how strange I am. The look on the vet receptionist's face when I showed her a snake in a bag was priceless, though. ;)

thats... weird. head-butting and rapid color shifting, especially to bright startling colors in male veileds, is a sign of defensive aggression. so either you had the one chameleon in the world who was a whacko or you're misinterpreting.

you might check on how teeny and what kind they are, and your country's laws regarding the sale of baby reptiles. some, ESPECIALLY BABY TURTLES and tortoises are IIIILLLLEGAL! to sell in pet stores in the U.S. i haven't looked into laws outside the us though.

Aw, so sad.

Also, snakes are awesome, dunno if I'd ever be interested in having one as a pet though, I prefer cats :o . Spiders on the other hand are scary, if I see a spider I usually try to find the thickest book I don't like thats lying around and squish it. What can I say, I DON'T LIKE SPIDERS.

Spiders, oddly enough, are the only ones I won't actively squish. I'll leave spiders alone.

Other bugs that are pests, if in the house, will be chased to an open window and/or squished, whichever happens first or is more convenient. I'm really not afraid of bugs. Unless they're really damn creepy looking. When I was in high school, there was what looked like a centipede with huge freaking legs and antennae on my ceiling over my bed. I swept it off my ceiling with a broom, threw a chemistry textbook at it, and didn't do my homework in the subject for a week. >_<
