well said v.aw. it seems to me that 'ranching' is being cloaked by certain ppl as a good thing. as i said in an earlier post, and as u re-iterated, ranching still means that hundreds of hatchlings / neonates are packed into crappy conditions, shipped half way around the world and then held for a cpl of days by some wholesaler till he can get his $1.50 ea for a 1000 ball pythons.
also alot of the females are not released at all, most are killed for their precious skin (not to mention all the other 'remedies')
cheers
paul
