My only comment would be regarding the caging. I have raised two boys with large retics in the house and like you my wife was very concerned. However like the original responder suggested, my retics are in secure locked cages in a locked room. Is this overkill? Probably however my wife is happy and there is a better chance our family dog would have trampled our baby before the retics caused any harm. I guess what I am saying is that a retic needs a better cage set up than a plastic tub with ropes. Building even a plywood constructed cage can be easy inexpensive and secured with a keyed lock. I hate to bust your husbands balls but I would hate to hear of a worse outcome
