Dear Reader,
 
   Reptiles live amongst us as more and more people are keeping them as pets. Banning reptiles as pets does not solve the problem nor help those which are pets already. Please join me in promoting education that will dispense with negative and misleading information surrounding the keeping of reptiles.
