9-year-old Briton living in a house with 94 lizards
The schoolboy from Royston settled in his apartment a huge number of reptiles.
9-year-old schoolboy Ben Whittaker from Royston, Hertfordshire, settled in a small apartment 94 lizards, and announced his intention to take care of them yourself.
According to relatives the boy from childhood Ben loved the wild. The child could not remain indifferent to homeless animals and was always trying to shelter them in his house.
About six months ago, after another walk with friends, Ben returned to households with 3 lizards and began to solicit them to leave the animals in the apartment. Initially, parents were skeptical about the intentions of his son, but could not refuse him, and resigned shortly.
Several months ago, three reptiles postponed a large number of eggs. Surprise, the boy was no limit, when lizards named Izzy, and Brian Bell hatched 91 young.
- Mom told me that she did not allow more breeding reptiles - the boy says. - However, it is well aware that I can not leave their pets on the street.
- The situation is complicated by the fact that we have no right to sell the reptiles until they are 6 weeks - says the mother of Ben. - Every day we have to spend about $ 10 to feed them. Over time, they reach a length of one meter.
According to an employee of one of the local pet shops - Steve Ellis, the first time he is faced with the fact that so many offspring appeared in this subspecies of lizards.
