    You can talk on this forum all you want. each thread, though, 'belongs' to the original poster of the thread so if you go off the original topic and don't speak about what they're speaking about it can hurt the original posters feelings so maybe that's what you're talking about?

    Since this is your thread you can reply whatever you want but we still try and keep it to the original thread description so the future people who are interested in the same thing you are can search for that subject and read this thread and get answers and not bunch of conversational chit-chat.

    I have 1 leopard and 2 Burmese black mountain tortoises!

    The main point is to watch off color language. We have, and encourage, many young members here. I'd hate to be chased off from making naughty posts or threads.
