People are just wondering what herps you own or have owned, Rikki. Your signature doesn't help much...

That wasnt the question.

Rikki - What herps do you currently own or have owned in the past? It is an easy enough question, so please answer it.

QUOTE FROM THE LINK I PROVIDED:

At the pet stort i work with a 11 ft burm, i own a nile, iguana, 2 red ear sliders, and a ball python. I owned a 5ft Iguana raised from a hatchling which i sold when we moved ( )..... Ive been in the reptile hobby for 4 years and all of my animals are in excellent condition.

I don't think feeding and changing the water of an 11' burm, means you have experience.. IF you had experience, you wouldn't be going into that burms cage alone..

Just to be on the fence here, how much experince would you critics recomend before someone is qualified to open there doors to unwanted Iguanas, Savs, Leopards, Beardies, Anoles, RES, and the occasional corn, oh and let's not forget Burms probably the most abandoned snake of them all?
My concern with someone who wants rescues is first their motivation but second their finances. If you can't afford to take it to the vet and spend what ever it takes to fix it right I say leave it alone.

can we please not jump down his throat? what makes you think he would be adopting an animal he couldnt care for? almost all reptile adoption agencies have very rigorous screening procedures and would not adopt an animal out to someone they felt could not care for it. it is not our place to make this judgement. what makes anyone think he would be getting in over his head? there are plenty of easy to care for animals out there for adoption, and if he doesnt know how to care for a sick reptile, he wont adopt one! can we just give each other the benefit of the doubt?

I think its because you consider yourself to be experienced when you really are not.
