So my 7 year old keeps asking for a pet and I am considering it, however I was wondering what sort of pet he should get. I am allergic to fur and currently have several crested geckos and royal pythons, he claims to have one of my Cresties (he doesn’t but I go along with it). I would like a pet that he could hold, watch and feed, while supervised of course but I also have a 3 year old so would be nice if he didn’t need constant supervision incase my 3 year old is causing mischief like usual. But would also be okay if didn’t have regular handling from him.
This Reptile would live in his room (locked), but ultimately whatever he gets I will be looking after…I just want him to learn a little responsibility and to learn about animals as we love them so much. He is very gentle with our current reptiles & listens well (at least when it comes to the reptiles).
I was thinking a crested gecko but I’d like some other suggestions so I can give him a bit of a choice.
Any suggestions would be grateful.
