Welcome to the breeders side of the Reptile industry! I don't consider an animal sold until I have cash in my hand. It's pissed a couple people off in the past when they take a month to send me money only to find out someone else sent me money before they did. But, hey, that's the way it has to be! I know myself I'd prefer to wholesale all of my stuff.....or just produce the high end animals as the people buying those rarely **** you around and pay what you are asking for the animal(s).
