Okay children, let's settle down.. No need to make fun about the way people type.. There's a thread about this somewhere in the General Discussion if you want to talk about that further..

Lizlady, 9/10 times i will post both the breeder and who i got the animal from (if different from the breeder) provided i know who bred the animal

We are fine, like i said you can poke fun till your head pops off, I really dont mind. I dont care if i misspelled something, I am only human so that does not bother me. But you should watch what you say because i could have had a reason that my grammar was not the best.

Now he tells us! lol

Every time I buy from one of Canada's best I always drop their name when I post the animal's pics. It adds credibility to my collection when people know it's made up of the best available stock in Canada. Makes it easier for me to sell possible albino hets when people know my 100% came from Patterson. Or when I breed and sell Nuclear Kenyans people will know they are in fact Nuclear because they came from Roy the founder of the line. When the day come that I sell Jungle they will be from Favelle stock.
Why should I reinvent the wheel when so much of what I want to work with is already being worked with by some of our best.
Also when ever possible I only buy from dedicated Canadian breeders. I pay more but I always know what I'm getting. These people have reputations they want to up hold and they are only as good as their last sale so you always get the best of everything.
Cheers,
Trevor

If ya didn't breed it why should the person get credit for the animal? I mean most majior breeders put alot of effort in to thier lines. Look at Mr. Favelle His lines are awsome and it took alotta work to get it that way so I give majior props to them

They don't deserve credit for producing the animal, but I almost always mention who I purchased the animal from, regardless of whether they bred it. There is much more involved than just producing the animal, such as maintaining a healthy animal and having an excellent business transaction. There are many people out there who are NOT good to deal with, I will most certainly give credit to those who are.

Thanks Linds, that was what i meant. I think that if you have raised the animal and then for whatever reason sell it then the person that buys it should say that you were the person that cared for it but ABC was the breeder. becuase it helps the person that sold the animal to sell again and get a name for themself to.Hey Paul not nice

I'm with Linds. The middle man is important. Just because a snake was bred by the best breeder in Canada or the world for that matter, it doesn't mean that the middle man is the best keeper in Canada or the world.

It's a good idea to keep track of who the middle man is simply because you may purchase something thinking it's a product of a high end breeder, only to find out that breeder has not sold any of those animals to the middleman in question, or has only begun selling them to others recently enough that there is no possible way the middleman would have it.

This gives the breeder the opportunity to refute the origin of the animal in question.

Not that underhandedness seems nearly as prevalent within the Canadian market as that of the much larger American market. Fauna's BOI just boggles my mind
