Just My Opinion!!!

ok I see alot of people saying that people shouldn't buy a Burmese Python or any snake that has a rather large growth potental if they can't house it as an adult and I TOTALY agree...but to be honest with you I think Geckos are starting to take over the large snakes spot on the podium.

I am always surfing the forums and looking in the classifieds and occasionaly you will see someone selling a large snake ,be it a burm ,retic ,etc.
But I can guarentee you will ALWAYS see Geckos for sale alot of times people will just give them away....now don't get me wrong they are cute little buggers , but i just can't say I agree with so many people breeding so many of them , and some of the prices I see on these little gaffers is outragious......

Like I said this was just my opinion !!!!

I think with geckos being given away it more of getting bored with the little sticky toes than not being able to handle it. It is a valid observation, and I agree that too pany people are probably breeding them. But it is not an animal that will outgrow you. I think getting bored witht he animal is the driving factor. As far as the massive amount of breeding. Geckos are often a first lizard and they are easy to breed. Too many people with pipe dreams of making a living breeding herps. It is few and far between that herps are the sole source of income.

Aint that the truth.....I breed for the enoyment of it! The extra income I make off of it is nice but in no way would it ever support me! Basicaly it pays for the equipment and new speices and supplys so it dont cost me to play with my hobbie

But it has takin alog time to get to that point!

It seems you get bored of all your animals just as quick, it seems you have gone through more animals in the last 6 months then the Biggest African exporter.

Now kids. Let's play nice. If you make a really bold statement you need to qualify it. If you don't it sounds like just picking on him/her/it. If you qualify it, then it is different. Don't make me send both of you to Time Out with no cookies
