    i keep reptiles myself and anyone who does will know that each are different and will like certain things and dislike others o the people on this programme will know what theres likes and dislikes so will adapt to that, every person i have seen on this programme looks after there animals amazingly and they look like really happy animals, they trust there owners and never looked distresed or unhappy and for people to come on here and judge and say these horrid things is discusting i think if you don't like it then don't watch it and then sit and write on here making out as though these people are wrong with what they do as they are not!!!!!!

    I keep pigs and it's illegal to feed them anything prepared in a kitchen, whether its a pet pig or a pork pig. Looks seriously over-weight, too. I assume she also has a walking permit for the pigs.

    What is wrong with that reptile guy. Feeding a moniter lizard a mouse defrosted in hot water. Any responsible reptile owner knows its best to let a frozen food item defrost in the frige for 24-38 hrs. He shold have his animals taken off of him.

    the show in general is ok aprt from all the recycled footage from essex jungle. but that chav with the eyebrow peircing comes across as ignorant and full of crap, he shouldn't be giving any kind of advice especialy on tv as it gives responsible us as reptile keepers a bad name!!!!

    It is irresponsible of Channel5 to shpow these programmes. These people are not providing a suitable envinment for their animals which is an offence under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and will be reported to the RSPCA. Keeping a caiman in the conditions shown is nothing short of animal abuse. Wild animals should not be kept as pets.
