Well, why not….Dogs enjoy TV…and at times I can swear Bob (Bearded Dragon) watches too…He seems to enjoy smallville…He is always out for it….go figure…..I had a python that was amazed by rock videos…..Mainly Metallica’s “Enter SandMan”....It would actually lift it’s head up and watch it…..(It was the strobing light and heavy vibrations that caught it’s attention, but I didn’t let the layman know that) .
