Now that is a job offer!!!!! At first the pay does not sound so good, but then add the house, the truck and the MAID!!!!!! I would snatch that job up in a heart beat (if only........*sigh)

Yeah, your life is hell, isn't it Zane?

If it weren't for the reputation Reptile Republic has got and the fact that I'd worry about never being payed and possibly arrested, I'd jump on it myself.

I've never heard anything about Reptile Republic, all I've seen is that they're owned by Fluker Farms. Only news artical I can find on them is http://www.businessreport.com/cgi-bi...&story.id=2705

Fluker Farms International Reptile, Iguanas Tropicales and the
Reptile Republic are controled by Howard Fluker(note the name in the email is Howard reversed). Fluker Farms is controled by David his brother. Seperate companies that share many of the same stockholders.

Silke, yes it was, and was going to give away 2 bearded dragons daily for the months of August and September, but they stopped it a few weeks into the contest, due to the complaints from people receiving very ill, infected animals

Lisa, you can learn a lot about them by going the the RR website that was listed previously by dead bob and go to forums>>>bearded dragons and read the post by people who received bearded dragons direct from them from 8/22 for the next week(there were post prior to that, but those have been deleted). That can tell you more than you probably ever want to know about Reptile Republic or have to experience first hand.

dead bob "Looks like one heck of an operation too" go back to the site and really look at it. The chat rooms are disabled, live vet it advertizes is gone, and the forums died after the diseased bearded dragons they shipped became so known and discussed, even with them deleting many post and banning many words like adenovirus in post, there is still enough there to see what happened and what this company was doing. The post up there still show the banning certain words in post. It appears that RR has abandoned the site basically. I wonder if they even realize it is still accessible as a monument to their past actions, or how long it will be?

Thats not the first time they have done something like this, several years ago it went on for months also with their diseased iguana's.

Sadly, that was forgotten as new people entered the hobby and were not aware of the history of this company, also as this last round with BD will probably be forgotten and move on to the next species.

Let hope this time he finds someone willing to take a position with a company with that rep that knows a bit more about the basic health and well being of the animals and not just mass producing them for profit

Oh, the job offer is true, its in Central America, El Salvador working with non native species. But, IMO, more than pay, housing and a maid make something desirable. I realize it would be working with a product that is something we all love, but you have to look at the company, their rep, what their goal is and the job security or past history of it.

Guess they wouldn't hire me even if I wanted the job. I was banned from Reptile Republic's website after posting about a rescue case of mine involving 2 of their animals who had a relatively rare strain of cryptosporidiosis more commonly found in turkeys. Both animals died, but not before infecting a 7 year old girl who ended up with kidney failure due to severe dehydration. Thankfully she has made a full recovery but was very sick for 5 months.

They banned not only me, but all available IP addresses at my ISP.

I suppose I'm dangerous.
