Just for the record.
Just my two cents in here if I may.
I hope I'm not being shoved in the catagory of, as Jeff put it, "never ask a pet store employee about husbandry advice for reptiles....."
Just to ease your troubled mind guys.....I know what I'm doing!
To make comments like this, underminds the knowledge I been gaining in the last years on reptiles and their care.
I understand your feelings about certain "chains" and the lack of proper advise being issued, but please have the common sence not to group us all in that catagory.
My advise to anyone buying at the local petstore, is to talk to the employees and find out if any of them are experienced keepers. If not,research more before buying from them, or buy from a store that has the knowledge to answer your Q's!
