posting where you get your animals?????

Hi,
I was just wondering if someone could tell me this..... when you buy or trade a snake or lizard or whatever with someone and you post a picture of the animal do you say where you got it from weather or not the person that you got it from was the breeder?? and if you dont why not???
I am asking becasue if i post a picture of what i have bought i always post where i got it from weather they are the breeder or not and the reason for that is because weather they were the breeder it was still their animal and that is the right thing to do(well i think so) but i guess when you think you are bigger and better then others you forget how you started out. but people should remember if it was not for the little guys you would not be a big man on campus. anyways just my opinion.

I think the breeders of the animals whose photos have been posted should be given credit; however, it's really up to the individual whether they would do that or not. I have seen several people on here post photos of their animals and mention which breeder they recieved them from.

As for where I got my animals...

Most of the pets I have are rescues I've decided to keep, (for vaious reasons). My leos are all pets that I've bought from a friend, with the exception of one who I got from a petstore (not what you think... I repeatedly go to a terrible petstore and try to get the owner to take better care of his animals... during one of my 'inspections' I saw this lovely leo and found out that she had been traded in a few days before). I obviously didn't want her to suffer the conditions there, so I bought her. Her name is Freckles... you might have seen one of the million pix I've posted of her here. My leos are really the only pets I have that I haven't rescued... The other two are from a friend of mine who breeds them.

My African Plated Lizard, Dahli; Burmese python, Bandula and Box Turtle, Mike are all rescues. I also have a dog, Sadie, whom I recently rescued and a pet Praying Mantis, a gift from my fiance.

I think that when people post pics of their animals, they just want to show off their animals and tend to forget or not even thinking of posting who the breeder was. Personally, I don't really think about "who" I got a herp from. Although, I do remember where each and every one of my animals comes from. If someone is interested in knowing who produced an animal I've posted a pic of, they can just ask me.

It's not about being "big man on campus" it's just about showing off the animals, not name dropping, not rubbing shoulders, not my stock is Mr. Big Name.

Besides, maybe the breeder doesn't want their name plastered all over the place, for whatever odd reason.

no you guys are getting it all wrong,my question is when you get a animal from someone and you post say on a website here are my new babies and you say what they are and when you got them and who you got them from but you post the name of the breeder and not the person that you acully got the animal from. for instance i buy a gecko from you KATT and the breeder was SAMBA, will if i was posting a picutre and saying where and when i got the gecko i would say that i got the gecko from KATT and that the breeder was SAMBA, not that i got the gecko from SAMBA because to me it is rude,you did not get it from the breeder. I am not saying that the breeder should not be posted but just because you think you are a big breeder does not mean you should forget where you started and who sold you the animal. It is like the person that you sold it to thinks they are higher then you and dont want anyone to know where the animal came from. I know that people post new animal to show off the news one. I do that all the time i am just asking a question.

As long as people dont misrepresent what they have, I dont see how it matters what they say. If I had Don Patterson's stock (I wish...someday your Bredli will be mine muhahahaha!), I would say that no matter who I bought it from. If I had a reason to mention the middle man (great service for example) then I would do so. I would never say I got it from DP if I didn't though.

As long as nothing is misrepresented, like rwg said, then I don't think it matters.

I often post where I got the animal from, and the breeder, if the information is available. I do this because I think breeders can ALL use some free advertising, and I like to use a mention of their name with the animals photo as a small thanks. It's always nice to see someone happy with a snake you sold them as well.

I agree hole hartedly. As long as no one is misrepresenting their animals it doesn't really matter. I sometimes will put the middle man on my website if I know them, but sometimes I get animals at shows for cash or trade and dont get or dont remember the name of the middle man, only who the original breeder was. Some animals I have I don't even know who the original breeder was because it was bought off of someone that didn't know or that got it at a pet store.

I do the same as many other people here, if I know the breeder I will often post who's stock it originally came from.

I'll ask you the same question then cause you both have ridiculous grammar and spelling.
It's amusing really.

ib_inked, is there a reason you are asking such a off the subject question? Or did i spell something wrong. Really does it matter where i went to school but i will tell you anyways being that you are sooooo curious. I went to George Brown College and have 3 degrees. 2 in computer business and computer support and 1 in the medical field. hope that is the answer you were looking for and please dont come up with something like" oh well you should go back to learn how to spell" hahahahaha.

maybe you should read your own post before you post. and again that is so inmature that you would even ask that, people can make a mistake but i guess someone like you that is sooooooo perfect would never know that. off topic,really if you dont have anything to say about the real topic then mind your own business,how old are ?12 years old.
