does anyone have one? i hear that it's normal in the UK to have them in petshops.,.,,.
they were his sons. It's a complex study into a man on the verge of a mental breakdown.
(who were idiots)
bought one with their student loan (the idiots). It didn't seem very fair at all as the animal was just nervous all the time and clearly wasn't a domestic pet sort of animal. Eventually they gave it to a girl who at least seemed to know how to handle it a bit better.
One of them ended up my best man, the other is godfather to my son. The idiots!
Did the guy who ended up godfather do an impression of Marlon Brando impression when you told him?
What an idiot.
But the cage was pretty much the entire size of our back garden (i.e. very huge). I used to take my sleeping bags in sometimes and sleep there. It was amazing, hade bits or trees, and all sorts - sort of seemed like a zoo enclosure. It had a porch kind of thing, so you walked through the first door, closed that, and then opened the second door to stop them going out. They were so adorable. And bred fast. Apart from once an albino one was born, who we called whitey, and he was all puny so I used to stay in the cage all the time, and then one day he tried to jump from one of the branches, but didn't actually jump towards anything and he died. It was very sad.
was a far more accurate depiction
was a fabulous story and made me very happy except for the end part. you were so lucky to have that experience! well, i guess i'm lucky too.,when i was growing up we had lots that lived wild in our yard and they got quite tame with me and would crawl around on me trying to get peanuts :)
