Yep Emily is young but you'd never guess it, she's really smart and mature - i'd trust her with my herps any day!

Madhatter and RachelS also come to mind, they are really cool and great to talk to. They all put lots of forethought into an animal before getting it.

I too am young (17), and I read every single caresheet online and ask all the questions I can before going ahead with something. I know the people on here have lots of experience and KNOW what they are talking about (for the most part), so I LISTEN to everything they say!

Okay everyone this is going no where fast. BP13 I am glad you chose ball pythons over chams. Good choice. There were a few people that had some good suggestions for you. Take this as a learning experiance. I would suggest staying on this forum at least part time because there is some very knowledgable people here that can teach you a lot. Just some friendly advice. Good luck and i hope to see you back here.

My chameleons name is Zoe. I don't refer to him by name on here, because I don't want people to think I'm refering to YOU when I talk about having to force feed Zoe, or moving Zoe into his new cage....Hehehehe....maybe I should, just to make people go "HUH???"

Yes, Emily is a fine example of smart young members here. I had the opportunity to meet her last weekend and she is definitely doing things right with her pets. It shows just by her posts and questions.

Another great example is garterguy, who just found a shelter to donate his time to and help animals that really need it. Now that is a great way to learn hands on about different species and their care.

I'm sure I'm missing a ton of other great young smart members here, sorry! I don't check the age of all who post

So it really doesn't have anything to do with your age, only with your MATURITY and COMMON SENSE which you are definitely LACKING

What was with him though. Im 14, have a few great breeding projects going and have a good paying job set up. I know I wasnt anything like him at that age, which was a year ago. Well im 15 next month on July 6th (wink, wink, nudge, nudge lol) Well we gave Ballpython13 a ton of advice and tips and he would ignor it and srart asking something about another herp. Think of the bad rep us young herpers got from this (amazing) 7 page epic.

I didn't even know you were 13.

And secondly, I have given you TONS of advice but you can't seem to accept that everyone won't do that work for you, and that experience with these creatures doesn't come overnight.

And then you start playing the age card like no tomorrow.

Give me a break.

And as for people who said Trace put an animals life in danger??? Are you kidding? You think this person is going to go out and get elephants to feed the cham (which they can't even spell correctly) and then be dissapointed it won't eat them? LOLOLOLOLOLOL If someone actually took anything said as a JOKE as anything but, then they really need some more research time. LOL.

And I am also tired of some people blaming people on the forum for not walking people hand in hand through caring for an animal they have purchase and have done no research on.

Is it EVER going to be the pet owners responsibilty to learn on their own?

And if someone HAD said "You need to do research first" then one of our members would have said "no need to be so rude"!!! Its ridiculous IMHO. Humans need to learn others are there to help, not bare the full brunt of their non-researched purchase and then try and work through the most simple husbandry with them from step 1. over the internet.

Even if someone is stupid, as you guys say.. and iam not commenting. There are still ways of dealing with them other then being just as stupid yourself... One option ---> ignore feature?

Are you all aware that this is the same person posting on every single board as "dirty_pop" asking for advice on care, breeding and incubation??

It's all just a silly game to this person, to see everyone scrambling around trying to babysit him through his herp adventure.

But those of us who treated it as such earlier today are the bad guys.

Riiiiiiiight.

I apologized to BP13/Dirty_Pop just in case I hurt his feelings. Where's the apology from him for wasting everyone's time, getting page after page of advice (on this board, and just about every other)....and then just discarding it, because it wasn't what he wanted to hear?

And V...you had plenty to say earlier today about Trace, myself and everyone else that "played along"....perhaps you should of taken your own advice, and found that IGNORE button since this whole thread bothered you so much.

I believe Dirty_Pop is actually Chris Steele, according to another post. Gawd, what some people will do for attention.

icequeen - i agree!

You're right krrc...it seems certain that any reptile he takes on will not have a very long or happy life.
Not unless BP13/Dirty_Pop did, by chance, actually read anything here, and decide to LEARN about the animals he hopes to one day own.
