very emotive subject, but it was something i had been pondering about posting myself (nice work jeff!) to start with the wild caught debate; in my opinion, there is no reason for any reptile to be taken from its natural habitat, and dumped into a petstore. wc does have a need, for several years madagascan boias have seen a dreadful decline in clean bloodlines. so in the case of certain species that need to be captive bred for the species continued survival then there can be no other alternative than to introduce fresh bloodlines into a designated captive breeding program.
got loads more to write, but i'm well battered. long afternnon at the bar!
