Very interesting stuff. This thread may be the only one were I can state my beliefs and not worry about the context. I feel that hots and Giants should only be kept by people with permits. These permit systems already exist in some states. There are too many giants up for adoption. The bigger the snake the bigger the price. Burms for under a hundred bucks scares me. If some inexperienced keepers hot gets out and kills the neighbour’s child then the whole hobby suffers. I also believe that when ever possible feeding live prey should always be avoided. My beliefs about the pet trade its self could fill an essay.
If only we lived in a perfect world.
