Wow…first time I’ve seen this subject here…the problem of having too many pets is a psychological problem…the are called hoarders…the most famous are the old ladies with too many cats…not once after have the animals taken awaken from these people have they ever admitted to abusing the animals…in their opinion they are great caretakers... even though anyone else seeing the conditions these animals are kept in are deplorable.

This is a serious animal abuse issue. One that is often over looked...many of us are able to care of a great number of herps without issue…but it is easy to see how one could try and justify too many and we would let them get away with…I would love to see at the next expo a discount off admission for all those that could supply a vet bill (any time in the last year.) I think it would be surprising how few people could take advantage of the discount…
