    Turtles are cool, I didn't think of them. My dogs might not appreciate them though, they kind of freak out if they find one in the yard.

    I agree, a gecko, small lizard or frog. Don't let anyone talk you into a beardie. They get big, and are somewhat demanding with food and special lighting. Ask me how I know. (Teddy is still glaring at me, I still haven't guessed what the only veggie he will eat is.)

    I'm ok with feeding bugs to pets, but not so much fish or mice. I'm not adverse to someone else feeding their pets that kind of thing, but I like little fuzzies and fish. My 7th grade science class had a 6 ft Boa named Lucy that ate large rats, and I remember seeing my science teacher kill the rats for her. That kind of stuck with me, it was a bit disturbing.
    My problem would be, if I got feeder critters, I'd end up keeping them as pets.

    Crickets, worms, mealworms - I can handle that.

    all of my snakes eat frozen/thawed mice of varying sizes. i get them prekilled, otherwise i'd end up keeping them too.

    There are frozen mice. I use those for my corn snake. They also make "mouse sausages" that don't look like mouse any more. You have to mail order them.I'm not pushing a snake, I'm just sayin'.

    you have to work with them to get them to go for f/t, but it's a lot safer for the snake than eating prey that can fight back. maybe you could get an axolotl? although they require an aquarium, they're super cool. or maybe save up some money and start a dart frog terrarium with live cps etc?
