WOW!!! I really appreciate everyones post , I am glad that I am not alone in how I felt about the whole situation, I am just trying to be a good business man in a profession that has always been a hobby to me ever since I was little wee one!!! I have found my calling in life, even though it it may take so many back breaking hours to care and house for so many animals it is always enjoyable to me. I also always enjoy coming on here and sharing, I just wanna say, I luv this little family of ours, and I want to thank Jeff ******** for creating such a nice place were we can all come together and share our animals with each other, and share our experiences in this hobby of ours whether its a good experience or bad!!! Its always nice to share and to vent!!!

thanx all!!!!

Does this place actually exist cause so far no one has received anything from them except for the words "sold out"

reminds me of a guy from rep rescue before who liked to play these games with people

Infact, the first day i inquired, he was willing to drive them to me right away.
That is my biggest pet peve when it comes to buying snankes! Are you selling animals or not! Is said animal for sale or not. I hate it when someone list an animal and then the story changes all the time. The bandsaws at Canadian Tire are always the same prive 7 days a week no matter who wants to buy em. My other favorit stunt is " I can't sell you that animal but I can sell you THIS animal instead." That has only ever been offered with my best interest in mind once.:firestart

That is pretty shady...
but it makes me wonder where the animals are going? Everyone here has been had them sold under them, but to who? o.O Do they play favorites or something?

SEND MIKE AN EMAIL PERSONALLY!!!

I TRIED TO BUY FROM MIKE FROM LONDON REPTILES ALSO & AM NOT IMPRESSED WITH HIM OR HIS PRACTICES. SNAKES WERE LISTED ON KINGSNAKE, I REPLIED RIGHT AWAY & WAS ANSWERED ALSO RIGHT AWAY BY MIKE WHO SAID HE WOULD GET BACK TO ME WITH SOME PICS & SHIPPING COSTS SO I COULD PAY HIM UP FRONT RIGHT AWAY. I NEVER HEARD BACK FROM HIM. THIS WAS IN LATE NOVEMBER/EARLY DEC. I HAVE EMAILED HIM ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK SINCE & HAVEN'T HEARD BACK SQUAT. I'M ASSUMMING HE SOLD THE SNAKES & CHOOSES TO IGNORE ME NOW. I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM HIM NOR WILL I RECOMEND HIM TO ANY OTHERS. THE GUY IS A GOOF IN MY OPINION & HE SHOWS NO RESPECT TO HIS CUSTOMERS. I DON'T THINK I'M OUT OF LINE TO EXPECT A LITTLE BIT OF COMMON COURTESY ON HIS BEHALF. HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN BUSINESS AFTER ALL, BUT I'M SURE HE WON'T BE FOR LONG IF HE CONTINUES HIS "ANAL RETENTIVE BUSINESS PRACTICES" DON'T WORRY PEOPLE I EMAILED HIM PRIOR TO MAKING MY POST & MADE HIM AWARE OF HOW "POPULAR" (L.O.L.) HE HAS BECOME ON THIS THREAD. MAYBE HE'LL CHECK IT OUT & GIVE HIS HEAD A SHAKE (THOUGH I DOUBT IT). IF ANYONE ELSE WANTS TO CONFRONT HIM PERSONALLY, AS WE ALL SHOULD (I DON'T THINK IT RIGHT TO POST WITHOUT LETTING HIM KNOW ALSO IN PERSON), HIS EMAIL IS londonreptiles@cogeco.ca . I'M ASSUMMING THIS IS STILL CURRENT AS ALL THE MAIL I SEND THERE IS DELIVERABLE. THIS IS WHERE I FIRST CONTACTED HIM & WAS REPLIED BACK TOO ONCE. THESE ARE JUST MY OPINIONS & IF YOU ARE OFFENDED OR FEEL THE NEED TO STAND UP FOR THIS GUY, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME & I'LL TALK TO YOU IN PERSON. I'M NOT MUCH ONE FOR HIDING IN FORUMS "DISSING PEOPLE" I WOULD MUCH RATHER DEAL WITH THEM ON A PERSON TO PERSON LEVEL UNLESS THEY AREN'T MAN (OR WOMAN) ENOUGH TO DO SO. I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE ELSE TO TRY TO CONFRONT MIKE PERSONALLY FIRST, BUT YOU'LL PROBABLY JUST HAVE TO AIR IT ON THIS FORUM ANYWAY AS THE GUY WON'T REPLY BACK. LONDON REPTILES IS A JOKE IN MY OPINION & I HAVE YET TO HEAR OTHERWISE FROM ANYONE ELSE.

MIKE EMAILED ME TODAY ACTUALLY...

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER TO MAKE A RETRACTION OF MY PREVIOUS STATEMENTS OR NOT. LIKE I SAID ABOVE I EMAILED LONDON REPTILES BEFORE POSTING BECAUSE IT IS THE PROPER WAY TO GO ABOUT IT. TO MY SURPRISE I GOT A REPLY. APPARENTLY MIKE'S BUDDY DID THE NEW WINDOWS SOFTWARE THING FOR HIM IN DEC. & HE LOST ALL HIS CORESPONDENCE, ADDRESSES ETC. WHICH WOULD EXPLAIN MY MISDEALINGS WITH HIM. I MYSELF AM NOT A "COMPUTER GEEK" (NO OFFENSE PEOPLE, "WE MOCK WHAT WE DON'T UNDERSTAND" L.O.L.) & WOULD HATE TO SEE SOMEONE ELSE GET TAKEN DOWN DUE TO THEIR MISFORTUNE. I'LL LET YOU ALL DECIDE FOR YOURSELVES BUT I'D BE WILLING TO OFFER HIM A CHANCE TO EXPLAIN HIMSELF FIRST. MARK ISBELL - GONE SNAKEE!

thats like a place down here!! I am thinking of breeding Kali my ball python. So i find this guy with a male ball healthy and great looking. I say "I'm coming friday to pick up this snake, can you hold it for me?" his answer "of course, i'll keep it in the backroom i'm working friday so come straight to me" .. he puts it in the backroom cause i saw him because i went to get rats. Friday i am there before it opens "Ohhh sorry i sold it to a guy the next day!" .. it was a wednesday!! he had to save it until friday!!! wtf?!@?!

Hello all, anyways i recieved an email from mike yesterday morning, I ment to post it but I was so busy yesterday, well here it is,



Mike,
I'm sorry for sending you that tastless email, if your interested
I have a clutch of fifty hatching right now, I understand if your not but I feel pretty bad after letting you down, if I can help let me know. I'll send 40 in four weeks $20 each, no B.S. unless you want them younger but like I said I completely understand if you would rather not deal with me. Their good quality healthy Veileds and I'm not trying to push them on you I just don't know any other way to make up for causing this misunderstanding.
I know its my fault, I should've got back to you alot sooner.
Sorry man,
The last thing I need is to make enemies with any of the reptile guys out here. I'm sure you and me have alot more in common than differences.
Anyways let me know if I can do anyhting.
Sincerely Yours,
Mike London


WOW!!!! I am quite impressed with mike for admitting he was wrong and apologizing to me, that is all I really wanted, well that and the 40 veiled chameleons. well we will see what transpires from this, keep yah posted, happy herping!!!

Well I have a story similar to the follow, I will not mention any names. I am a website designer, and usually create web designs in return for herps. Well I had just got into herping and baught a Veiled Chameleon. I had an aquarium for him, but soon found out it would not be suitable. Well I found an individual who was willing to make me an enclosure in return for a webdesign. Being desperate for an enclosure, I accepted and created a website. I contacted him and told him I was finished, and whether he wanted me to send the layout in a zip file or post it on the web. He then said the deal is over. He stated it was because there had not be sufficient contact between us, but I don't understand what other information was needed, I knew everything I needed to know to create his design. Anyhow, I had been screwed out of hours of my time...yea it sucks...
