Some People

I was looking in the paper yesterday and it said 1 Ball python for sale biggest around. And will only sell to people that know how to care for snakes. Well i called him and he said that it was 1 years old and about 7' So i started to wonder a bit and asked him if i could come see it. So i went to look at it. And what i saw was a 7' BURMESE give or take and it's enclosure was a 30 gal tank. No heat No light and it was on Dirt that looked like he had dug it up from out side. I asked him how long has he been into snakes and he told me 5 years. And that he was more into the Big snakes and that is why he was selling his so called BP. So today he called me and asked if i wanted the snake I told him i would like to see it again. So he came over here and stated asking me if i was ready to own a snake.....LMFAO! I told him to come on up stairs and i would show him what i have for snakes as soon as he walked into the herp room his eyes almost poped out...lol

I then told him that he did not have a BP but a Burmese python with that said he turned around and told me that this was his first snake. To make a long story short i told him that he in fact was not taking proper care of the snake and if he wanted i would give him what small burms are going for $50. So now i have one more burm to the collection....lol You don't even want to know what he was feeding it 2 adult mice (LIVE) every 10 days. I have had her home for 2 hours so far and in a new enclosure she has already taken 2 jumbo rat's as if they were nothing. She is thin but not for long i think she will be just fine now.

Like i said SOME PEOPLE!

theres a lady two doors down from me that takes horrible care of her herps, and if i ever saw her door open with no one home it would be really hard to fight the urge to steal them. i feel so bad for them, some of the snakes she has are absolutly drop dead gorgeous, and they would be even more if they werent soo emaciated, it almost drives me to tears how some of these people think that there animal is sss great, and that they are soooo knowledgeable, but when you actually see the animals, and the living quarters it makes me livid. these people give us and our herps a bad name, and should be repremanded for doing so.

That's a true rescue for sure. Hopefully you got to it before it developed any serious problems.
