Ahem, as much as I hate to say it Silver, that's the case here too, conditions are awful and while I'd love to rescue them and I've turned these stores in to the ASPCA on several occasions, I know that if I purchase them, they'll only buy more and thus more reptiles will suffer.

It's a catch 22!

yeah That is why I want to open an exoctics petstore. I would only sell bread animals with the exception of any and all cats and dogs, iguanas, and turtles. There are too damn many of these in shelters. So I would only get my dogs, cats, iguanas, turtles from the shelters (all money made from rescued animals would go to the shelters minus cost of food only.)

This is my goal atleast. Not realistic with out startup moneys, but something to strive for.

Hey, you might talk to the state and county about getting you some funds for feeders and so forth and registering you as a 'shelter'. It could turn into a good relationship if they're receptive.

I have a few breeder friends I haven't really got anything from them though . I try to make it a habit never to buy anything that is living from a Pet-Co the one by my house should be quarrantined. The way the animals are treated is horrible. I usually buy most of my stuff from reptile shows or retile stores. I breed a few animals though nothing difficult just stuiff i want to keep.

From excellent breeders an a few good friends

Most have been purchased from BREEDERS, only a few (Madgascar Ground boas) have been purchased from brokers.

Very few came from friends, primarily because not to many friends of mine breed what I want.

TRADES are the best..i love them, much more fulfilling than sales and no one gets burned or out of pocket until broke. Barter...the wave of the futre, marl my words

yeah I understand. I love trading. I was going to trade 2 month old spotted california kingsnakes for a ferrit I wanted. This was to a guy who has a petshop. He was only gonna have them worth wholesale value and when I said what is the wholesale value on the ferrit he said no I dont do things likle that. Day before yesterday he implyed a even trade. And I accepted and then he thought he could get the best of me. LOL I simply walked out.

BUT DANGIT!! I WANT THAT FERRIT!
