1 Compensation? You're probably right about that, Stephanie! Pair that with a small brain as Pelirojo observed and we have a tragedy in the making. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 1, 2011, 12:47 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I don't know [nor care] about the owners' anatomy, Stephanie, but I think they definitely have small BRAINS [and this would cover the women owners of such dangerous pets best left in the wild]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 28, 2011, 8:09 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I am now convinced, after watching more episodes of this show, that the men who are obsessed with venomous snakes, have small penises. That's the only thing that explains their screwed-up obsession! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 26, 2011, 9:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Cats love to give little nips and bites as a sign of affection. When a regular domestic cat does it that's one thing, but when a tiger does it... -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 23, 2011, 7:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Finally saw an episode last night and I absolutely approve. The media usually glorifies people like this and it's refreshing to see a show that doesn't. In fact, this show is a public service. I think anyone with a Beastmaster fantasy would get a reality check by watching it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 22, 2011, 2:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

7 Well, it's not "sensationalistic" like those "Attack" shows. It's very well done and notes the seriousness of these people's obsessions. They also have commentary by psychologists. The Timothy Treadway documentary is a perfect example of people thinking they can dominate wild animals. Although, he went out and stomped on THEIR territory instead of having them as pets, but the mentality is still the same. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 18, 2010, 7:31 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 So is this show like When Animals Attack or Grizzly Man (the documentary about Timothy Treadwell)? Because I liked those. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 18, 2010, 9:40 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I said it in another topic, and I'll say it again. It's a quote from Calvin and Hobbes. "You can take the tiger out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the tiger." It's CRAZY to want to own a deadly or poisonous animal that you can neither tame nor train. Yeah, I know, those who do/want to think it's cool to have a dangerous pet. But they can/will turn on you one day. The people who wind up as an episode of Fatal Attractions aren't admired for being cool because they own a deadly pet...they're ridiculed for being stupid enough to own a deadly pet which ends up killing them. You want a pet to look cool? Get a cat or a dog. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 17, 2010, 8:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 It sounds like a stereotype, I know--but I swear, nearly all the people I've ever met who were into those kind of inappropriate 'pets' seem to fit it. I've never really liked these kinds of shows, because, for one, they seem to encourage people to try and own animals which really weren't meant to be domestic pets, and secondly, because they mostly seem to take this approach to nature that it's something to be teased and taunted and 'stood up to'. I thought what happened to Steve Irwin was sad, but he was a perfect example of that. He didn't really interact with or respect the animals on his productions, so much as try to put on some carnival act where he was 'facing off' with a potentially dangerous wild creature, and he finally ended up dead. What happened to him was a fluke, but I think he'd have wound up having something lethal occur eventually with the way he behaved around these animals. These kinds of shows,imo, don't promote real understanding or respect for nature, the wild, and wild animals--they turn it all into some sort of titillating reality sideshow production, which is wrong. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 17, 2010, 3:13 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 That's interesting, elainewood, re: "virility issues". I've always suspected that there were "small penis pets" just like there are small penis cars. The guys that have to own the big mean dog, or the longest, thickest snake should be ridiculed more often. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 16, 2010, 10:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Years ago, I used to work in a pet store. I love snakes and I think they're amazing creatures, but I frankly don't think they were meant to be owned as pets. I always hated to see one of them be sold to some halfwitted teen or guy with obvious virility issues (those were predominantly the two types who purchased them, based on my experience), because you knew damn well that about 97% of the time the idiot wasn't going to care for it properly, and it would soon die in captivity. Agreed, most people I've encountered who a have a yen for these types of 'exotic' pets very often seem to have some real issues going on with them. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 9:15 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Unless someone's career is doing biological/zoological research, there is no damn reason to own a Gaboon Viper! Seriously? I'm sorry for the families of these fatalities, but anyone who has a venomous snake or a snake who is big enough to wrap around you and kill you, is a very troubled individual. Love the episode of the guy who was bitten by one of his many venomous snakes and while he's in the hospital...the cops went to his house to secure the snakes and find all this bomb-making paraphenalia! When the guy wakes up from his snake-bite induced coma, the cops are like: "OK, you're going to jail!" At times like that, you can't help but wonder that maybe the snake who bit him was just practicing "natural selection". -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 15, 2010, 7:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
