Yea, good advice about the non-commercial pet store... I know that a woman at a local commercial pet store that's in the Reptiles/Fish section is a total snot... they keep the chameleons in a very poor cage, (10 gallon long glass cage where they've got to hang on to the tube going into their water bowl) and when I talked to her about them she acted as though they were worthless and proceeded to tell me about her 5 foot bearded dragon at home that is so much better than any reptile she'd ever seen... I got annoyed and walked away from her.
So yea my point is that it'd be better to work somewhere where your efforts aren't a lost cause... GOOD LUCK! I hope you find a place!
