Lizards are not the most desired animals at the pet store, but we think they make great additions to the family, especially for youngsters. There are a ton of valuable lessons to be taken away from lizard ownership. Here are just a few ways lizards can enlighten one's outlook on life!
1. When to blend in.
No one wants to be the center of attention 24/7. Chameleons are well aware of the advantages of blending in with their surroundings, a quality many humans could learn a lot from.
2. When to stand out.
That being said, it's also a good idea to show your flair from time to time. Few pets are as eye catching as lizards. Their brilliant colors and peppy attitude remind us to be enthusiastic about what makes us special.
3. It's good to get out of the ordinary.
Hamsters, guinea pigs and dogs make great pets, but their such a common choice. A pet reptile will help you break from the norm and open up new experiences.
4. Don't let other people's opinions define you.
Lots of people are afraid of reptiles. They'll call them slimey, smelly, gross and refuse to consider them as a good pet choice. Do reptiles care? Not at all. They'll keep doing their thing no matter what people say, which is a quality we can all learn from.
