Governments think they can:
- Tell you what you can and cannot do to your body
- Establish ‘borders’ preventing you to roam the earth freely
- Detaining you indefinitely for breaking rules they created
- Mandate your paying a percent of income without any say to where the money goes
- Tell you who you can and cannot marry
- Spend more money on war than helping their own people
- Continue this behavior without the people realizing who holds the real power…
Its only a matter of time…
GO CHANGE THE WORLD FOR NOW IS YOUR TIME
Unless you have a dedicated room just for an iguana, I absolutely do not agree with free range captivity. There are too many temperature changes and improper access to UV light when an iguana roams a house not to mention access to toxins and possible foreign bodies. Keeping an iguana in a properly sized enclosure with the right microclimate is not at all cruel and is in fact better for them. An enclosure should be 2-3x the length of the animal long, 1.5x the length wide, and 2x the length tall.
This is in reply to this post found here.
Hi! i live in an apartment and i recently got the approval to bring my iguana in (new management w00t) at my old home he is a full free roamer, but with this new place i plan on allowing him to be a partial one (as in when i go to work he will go in his enclosure) and i was wondering if anyone has experience with 260 gallon reptarium. Like could it stand up to a 54 inch iguana scaling the sides of it, and would it be ok to leave him in there 4-6 hours. Any response would be lovely :)
I have seen several problems with free-roaming iguanas and I know this isn’t the question at hand but I feel like I have to state that you MUST know what you’re doing. The biggest issue I’ve seen is keeping the temperatures and light correct. Being in an apartment I can see a multiple amount of problems regarding this.
Obviously if you’ve done this before and you have regular vet check-ups I’m assuming you know what you’re doing. However, just be aware of the large differences between apartment living and house living.
Regarding the enclosure, could you be a bit more specific with the measurements?
Ps. I would personally not keep a free-roaming reptile. There’s a huge margin for error and that error is your animal’s life. This is not a hit on people who DO keep free-roamers it’s simply my opinion. It has been done successfully but there’s been too many cases of it ending with a dead lizard and a heart-broken owner.
In 2001, Grand Theft Auto III brought mainstream success to the GTA series and to the ‘open world’ or ‘free roaming’ genre. It was hardly the first game to feature this type of setup, but this was when open world became very widely popular as a genre.
Unfortunately, this spawned a horde of inevitable clones. A popular new game mechanic with a mass of applications and nobody seems to realise that it can be used outside of the mafia/crime theme. There are some brilliant exceptions, naturally. Red Dead Redemption, for example, or Shadow of the Colossus. Nowadays, though, it is considered novel if a free-roaming game has a different kind of weapon to all the others.
Needless to say, the genre hasn’t progressed very much in the last ten years, which is disappointing. Not because of the themes and environments that could take advantage of the genre and haven’t, though that is a shame also. What disappoints me is that I believe the free-roaming genre is a stepping stone to a new type of gameplay experience: Player Autonomy.
I shut all the doors in my basement and filled in all the spaces I didn’t want Shiva getting into with towels. I put her litter box in a corner in the basement and after about 10 minutes of exploring, went to the bathroom in it. I gave her tons of praise when she was done. HOORAAYY! We’re on our way!
