Posted Jan 11 2018 in , , , , , , , ,

Happy New Year, everyone. Hope this year turns out to be the best one yet. I love animals and enjoy reading about them. Though I must admit I like some animals better than others. For instance, I don’t think it’s nice to keep reptiles as pets. It’s just a personal thing, but I keep thinking […]
