For me, it saved my life. I had a rough childhood, abusive father and all. I was on the edge of ending it all when I got my first lizard, Zer0 my iguana. Then my life turned around. Eventually I ended up getting a little Veiled Chameleon, and I named her after my favorite monster in Monster Hunter, Chameleos. Then I found my calling in life, that being chameleons. Now I'm studying chams constantly and am on track to being a herpetologist studying the behavior of chams. That's how I got into keeping reptiles, how did you guys get into the hobby?
