Reptiles visit students

Young explained Colorado Gators has become a sanctuary for exotic pets that people buy when the animals are little, then the owners realize they aren't good pets. These include the reticulated python he's holding here. Because they can grow this big or larger and require a steady diet of rabbits, they outgrow many homes. They also can kill large dogs and adults.
Snakes such as rat snakes and ball pythons, also some lizards and tortoises, are better choices for pets. Young said in addition to alligator wrestling, his job includes 'constant cleaning.'
