It's just a matter of picking a good pet store. I don't buy ANYTHING retail any more, now that I'm hooked up with breeders and suppliers and such, but occasionally I go into (*$%(*$# to see what's new. They have a gal working the reptile department there that is just fabulous with her knowledge. She owns several snakes and lizards herself, which I think should be a requirement to work in that department. So no, not all are bad.
