Tony’s rule of “no pets in the bedroom” went out the window, when we were shown our room at Di’s. It comes complete with two full grown Bearded Dragons named Carter and Newton, and several plastic containers housing live wingless locusts (dinner). This menagerie is literally at the end of our bed and is certainly not for the faint hearted!
We went on an outing to Crystal Palace to restock the locusts at the Reptile Pet Shop. A crazy outfit specialising in lizards, tarantulas, snakes, and of course all their food groups. We watched in amazement as an innocuous middle aged couple purchased a 6ft Boa Constrictor to add the 14 others in their ‘snake room’.
Travel Tip 2: It is better to buy wingless locusts, they are easier to manage.
Travel Tip 3: London is a crazier place than it was 20 years ago.
