22 Reptile Shaming Pics That Every Scaly Pet Owner Will Understand

Posted by Stacey Venzel

Scaly pet lovers share a special bond, which is why they can relate to these reptile shaming photos.

Anyone who has ever owned a reptile knows these animals have unique care requirements that set them apart from their furry counterparts. The relationship between a turtle and its human is not the same as man and dog. But that doesn't mean the bond isn't as strong.

Reptiles might not play fetch or chase laser pointers, but they entertain and interact with us in other ways. They're also expert troublemakers.

Owners are catching their reptiles doing things only a reptile parent would understand. Take a look at this montage of iguana, turtle, tortoise, snake, bearded dragon, tegu, and gecko shaming.
